The New (Food) Pornographers get their Extreme Close-Ups at GINO'S EATS & BEATS


"Eggs Benedict" is my Porn Star name!



At the far end of Jupiter St. in Makati,

the quieter section, past Makati Avenue
and nearing the intersection with EDSA,

is my new favorite source of comfort food:



It's like a younger version of Pancake House,
or a local version of Denny's from the U.S.A.


The Greatest French Toast with Caramelized Bananas and Nutella




A couple of weeks ago,
I assembled an intrepid group
of intense food bloggers, and armed
with their Lumixes and DSLRS, we embarked
on an unforgettable adventure of food discoveries:






Gino's concept is pretty simple:
"FOOD you can't say NO to!"

Either as pica-pica or as a main course,
you'll want to order everything on the menu.

It's as simple as that. And that's exactly what we did.




Remember how much you loved your childhood cheese hotdogs
specially when the melted cheese would squirt out?

This is the extreme adult version:
Grilled Sausage slathered with CHEESE SAUCE!!!





Or how about two of the most popular pulutans,
GAMBAS and CHORIZOS (with lots of garlic!)
on one extravagant platter?





The Not-Just-Any-Salpicao:

ANGUS BELLY Salpicao, the amped-up version of the classic.
The difference being, Angus Belly has lots of "healthy taba",
for an even more delectable, decadent take on the classic.





The Grilled STICKS Platter:

Pinoy-style Pork BBQ, Chicken BBQ in Satay Sauce,
Curry Pork BBQ, served with Caramelized Onions!





The WINGS Platter:

Classic Buffalo, Oriental Hoisin, and Honey Mustard!





Cheese and Beef QUESADILLAS:

As good as any you'll find in Zapata's or Mexicali!





Isang Platitong ISAW:

An off-the-menu item, from Gino's private stash.
If he's around, ask him please. He might share!







And for Dessert? Gino's VANILLA Sundae:

Tastes exactly like the best part of a Magnolia
Ice Cream Drumstick, the TOP. 'nuff said!





And Beer, Beautiful San Miguel Pale Pilsen BEER,
to wash all the goodness down, only P55/bottle!!!
