The Best Little MAMI HOUSE in Baguio
Two a.m. on a frosty night in Baguio,
a steaming bowl of classic old-school mami,
salty broth accented by a squeeze of calamansi,
bright yellow egg noodles with
a generous sprinkling of spring onions,
tender beef brisket and half a hard boiled egg.
A Marlboro Light after the ten-minute meal,
P42.00 for the hot soup and the cool cigarette.
the simplest, cheapest things are best.
Cariño corner Abanao,
a block up the road from the old Spirits Disco,
across Sizzling Plate and the Paladin Hotel.
