HOOTERS Manila : The HAPPIEST Place on Earth!!!

a sea of happy faces at HOOTERS by the bay...

The members of QUIAPO DVD,
the yahoogroup dedicated to all things DiBiDi,
were fortunate enough to get the best table in the House of Wings,

and we arrived early enough to meet the last lady left
from the U.S. Launch Team, the dazzling DIANA!!!

No wonder Aidan looked positively delighted.
I now know how the little dude felt at Hooters!

Speaking of which, I was talking to his awesome daddy,
and we were both bewildered by the sheer number of too-cruel
and vitriolic comments addressed to the Hooters Girls whose pictures
were posted in Anton's review in Our Awesome Planet.

There have been quite a number of uncalled for insults
from some "haters", and frankly, I don't see the need,
nor the relevance of these severely anti-Filipino comments.

True, not all of the Hooters Pinays might live up to that
"mestiza" ideal of beauty; but hey, to each his, or her own.

I saw most of the ladies up close, and met a few of them,
and they are, to a woman, all wonderful and very pleasant.

Our Hooters Girl MADEL was so nice,
and we took so many pictures with her,
we now want to put up her website!
(see post immediately below)

They have honest jobs, earn decent incomes,
and have lots of fun, and spread lots of smiles while at it.

And just because they don't all look like Marian Rivera,
they get insulted in ways that would make Simon Cowell cringe?

And insulted by their fellow Pinoys at that.

Malu Fernandez, what have you wrought?!?!?!

all you "Shallow Hals"?


My buddy Roque Jr. gave the most intelligent and fair-minded
assessment of the Hooters Girls:

"I thought the girls were great-looking and
ethnically representative of the Filipina;
whoever was hiring took efforts not to discriminate
against height, color and other physical features."

Excellent point, sir. I agree completely.

And after that spicy appetizer,
on to the main course:


Forget the "Mild", ignore the "Medium";
go ahead and order the 20-piece "HOT" Wing platter.
I promise, you won't regret it:

just the right amount of heat,
extremely tasty & crispy skin,
and moist, tender meat.

Addicting, and perfect with my beloved Pale Pilsen.

And I love the fact that all tables
come equipped with these hefty napkins
for you to use after you lick your fingers!

Don't ignore the burgers either;
the "burjer" experts in our group were very pleasantly surprised
by the humongous all-beef patties;
juicy, and with just the right bite.

All San Miguel Beers at only P45.00,
bottomless iced tea and sodas for only P85.00,
The Best Chicken Wings in Manila, bar none,
and awesome Hooters Burgers...

a naughty but nice atmosphere
punctuated by hourly Y.M.C.A. dance dance revolutions,
a dozen plasma TVs showing the NBA play-offs,
a classic Rock and Roll soundtrack

(including "Those Magic Changes and other songs from GREASE!),

really is our Happiest Place on Earth!!!

HOOTERS Philippines
San Miguel by the Bay, Mall of Asia

> it's the last building on the strip,
in the area behind the IMAX theater


Yup, definitely an awesome view for the Pyro Olympics;
inside or outside Hooters, the sights are spectacular!

Hey Guys,
Thanks so much for the information I can't wait to get there in December and try out your new Hooters! And I WILL be leaving a 20% tip! :).
I am from the U.S. and really didn't think the poor comments to the girls were merited. Exotic? I don't know, all I can say is one of them looks just like my ex-fiancee here in the U.S. if that is pangit, then sign me up! And I don't understand the comments about how the girls dress, I see more revealing things at the mall!
Compared to here in the states? Yes, its like that, they should advertise World's Greasiest Wings, but tasty! (I recommend the grilled chicken.) Was surprised to see that the wings prices are the same or higher than here in the U.S. Wow, (just like Hard Rock, Starbucks, etc.) sounds as if they do like to cater to foreign money doesn't it?
Girls are definitely hit and miss everywhere, it's "reality", not TV. Me personally, I go to look at the butts and legs if anything, not faces, not hooters Ha! (And real is ALWAYS better than silicon.) Maybe better abs and teeth in some countries, but I find Filipinas largely appealing.
That is much of the endearment of the Philippines that most of the world lacks today, unspoiled genuine-ness (and family values, especially in the provinces. That's why I insist on marrying a Filipina).
P.S. Is there any chance I could meet Fran? ;)

I'll be heading to the PI in a few days and will definitely check out the hooters! As for the comments.. have those fools ever actually looked at themselves in the mirror? Acne .. flat faced .. screwed up teeth.. and they have the nerve to try and cap?? Hilarious!! Most of them couldn't get a girl unless they were on burgos with a pesos stickin out!!

Appreciate the review. I did not make it here, when I was in Manila July 2010. Just wanted to respond to some of the negative comments.

Hooters needs a better marketing campaign in Manila. It's corporate message appears lost among guests.

Hooters is representative, somewhat, of Southern USA hospitality and fun. It is designed for families, and the workers are the equivalent of school cheerleaders. It is #1 a sports bar, #2 a hangout, #3, a fun environment.

Hooters is sometimes confused with adult entertainment, coz it has beer and women in shorts and tight T-shirts. The debate will always rage. But, in Las Vegas USA, and possibly Manila, it is a very tame environment, compared to local adult-only entertainment. Hooters is meant for families.

I have been on travel in USA, and had female colleagues who were OK with going to Hooters for business dinner. I have been to California Hooters, and seen US Marines, with their Mom and Dad there, sharing time before hostile deployment. The women and workers, in both cases, were pleasant, attentive in the right way, respectful and fun.

Hooters is a very singular brand. It is not for everyone. Beauty and fun, will always be in the eye of the beholder.
