I’m glad that one of my favorite distinctive food places, Offbeat Cafe, has moved to The Collective in Malugay Extension. Easier for me to access. Like, 2 cartwheels at 4 na kembot lang, andun na ako.
Joko and I brought 2 of our friends to try the famous (naaaks… bestseller daw sa Mercato Centrale ito) Offbeat Burger aka the Krispy Kreme Cheeseburger. Well, Joko also wanted to eat it so she can max out her quota of 1 Krispy Kreme per month. Me, I wanted to try their melon beer.
my Offbeat dinner
Ay grabe. I had to remind myself that the Melon Beer’s errrmmm… beer and not juice. Ang sarap kasi! So refreshing! :p I had the Chili Willie with my green poison. It’s spicy fish sausage with relish and cheese in a soft bread. It was delish, as expected. But I still prefer Uncle Joe’s Sloppy Balls. :p
Vlad and Joko stocking up for Quiz Night at Murphy’s
Uncle Joe’s Sloppy Balls was what the boys had after they scarfed down their burgers in less than 7minutes. Ang tatakaw! LOL. I know that Vlad liked the burger coz it made him want another Offbeat creation. The sloppyjoe, he found good but he was nearing a food coma at the middle of eating it so he wasn’t able to give me a detailed description of how he found Uncle Joe’s balls. :p
with my lunchbud Eric
Eric, on the other hand, blogged his Offbeat experience. You can check out his veneration (lol) for the burger here.
the man behind the great food, Chef Mickey Wieneke (Chef Pancho was busy with his catering biz… miss you, Pancho!)
Talked to Chef Mickey and he said that they still have a stall in the latest craze of the Pinoy foodworld, Mercato Centrale. Ugh. I still haven’t visited Anton Diaz’s baby. I’m still not in my takaw-mode. Hindi pa pang-kaing construction worker ang appetite ko kasi.
Readers, if you plan on visiting Offbeat, visit them soon! They now have a promo of unlimited flavored beers for only P250.00! Which reminds me, I hope their Strawberry Beer is as fab as their Melon Beer. Gotta go there asap to find out! See you! x
