Our feeds turned Japanese on Wednesday after McDonald’s Philippines released its newest offering: “Flavors of Japan.”
More than a month before the appearance of lovely cherry blossoms in the east Asian nation, McDonald’s Philippines went ahead and offered Japanese-themed treats mirroring the much-awaited season. The treats include Strawberry Sakura McFloat, Nori Shake Shake Fries, Ebi Tempura Burger and Teriyaki Samurai Burger.
The hype for these products is really high so The Eatventurers decided to try them out on the first day of their release.
Here are our initial thoughts on McDo’s Flavors of Japan:
Lugaw or rice porridge is one of TheEatventurers’ favorite comfort food. It doesn’t cost much, yet it is very
filling. Some are exquisitely delicious which makes it a bang for your buck.
No wonder, it was used in the idiom"tubong lugaw" which means with small capital, there is a large return. Lugaw is Chinese in origin. It is very easy
to digest, which makes it a perfect dish for people under the weather. It has
different variations, from goto to arrozcaldo, to whatever toppings you desire.
It is the cousin of your favorite risotto. In a small place in Makati, The
Eatventurers discovered a restaurant packed with people of all social status.
You guessed it! We are talking about Lugawan sa Tejeros also known as "LST."
