Where to Eat: The "Busog sa P100" Challenge

There are a lot of newly opened food places in the metro. However, most people are hesitant to try them. Some are not willing to spend, some are on a tight budget, and some think that fancy-looking establishments sell expensive food.
The owner of Davao and beyond challenged me to find the latest diners with food that will satisfy my appetite. But here’s the twist, I need to find meals under P100.
The criteria:
  1. Should be P100 and under
  2. The meal should make me feel “BUSOG”
  3. Carinderias, food stalls, and kilid-kilid are not included
  4. I’m talking about restaurant quality meals – yummy!
  5. I’m looking for fresh and newly opened businesses
First stop, Caitlyn’s Dimsum and Specialty House.
This “It place” is very easy on the pocket and their serving is quite huge! Your P100 will go a long way. I highly recommend their dim sum. Trust me! You won't taste yucky extenders unlike other popular chinese restaurants that are stuffing more extenders than meats. lol

Time to go hunt down some Middle-Eastern treats. Try Sheikh Shack Shawarma.
Everything in their menu is under P100! You have four main meats to choose from. Enjoy them with rice, fries, or wraps!

If yes, you might want to try Azon’s Famous Boneless Lechon for only P95, and that already comes with unlimited rice. They also have other combo meals for less than P100.

If you already tried Azon’s, you have another option - Siggy’s! Their Sigchon (Sisig Lechon Liempo) is worth every fat, oil, and increase in blood pressure. The sakto meal is just P69. They also have other liempo meals available for less than P100.

Savor grilled chicken, pork bbq, and liempo at Nonong's Grill. Get a large meal for only P99. You have six tasty sauces to choose from - Teriyaki, Hickory, Honey Mustard, Sweet Chili, Korean and Toyomansi.

I can’t help but CHEAT. lol!
Adding P10 - P50 for something taste-worthy won’t hurt, right?
P100 + P45 and viola! You can enjoy super yummy grilled ribs at Nonong’s Grill. It’s their best seller and it's really good! Their honey roast pork is also available for P145. I love that sweet stuff too.
Chippen’s Café sells their house specialties for only P150. If you are willing to add P50 for a luxe meal, go for beef bourguignon!
Burger Chef’s regular gourmet burger is also a steal at P145.

Have you heard of Kamo or Kushiya in Damosa? They’re situated next to each other. They’re both located in front of the former Sea Urchin Building. Just a few meters away from Nikkei Jin Kai. Both establsihments serve tasty Japanese dishes for less than P150.
Drop by Tacobana too (Formerly known as Crazy Cravings Bistro). P100 + P10 and enjoy their Mexican rice meals with different variations - Chili Con Carne w/ egg, Gyoza Supreme, or Chicken Rolls.
So, are you ready to try the P100 busog challenge?
Yes, this is one of the few challenges that will allow you to cheat a bit!
