I'm a night owl. I find
it hard to sleep at night and I usually end up ordering food at 2am or even
5am. And then I thought, what would a a nighttime snack run in Bonifacio Global
City go about like.
One midweek night, I
decided to traverse a portion of The Fort. I started at 9pm from SM Aura. I had
to do a quick errand at Power Mac and then I tried to look for the perfect
I love buffalo wings. I
think it’s the perfect companion to an alcoholic drink and at the same time, it
can be eaten with or without rice. It’s the first time I tried the wings from
Frankie’s and upon looking at the simple menu, I knew that I had to try garlic
parmesan coated buffalo wings.
It took some time before the order arrived, but it was
definitely worth it. I ordered half a dozen of wings, but I wasn’t sure if I
will be able to finish it. The wings were coated with thick garlic sauce and
heavily sprinkled with parmesan. The initial taste was overpowering but the
moment you bite your teeth into the white meat, the overall taste balances it
At that time, I wasn’t sure if I would still be able to eat
two more dishes, but since I made it a point to walk to my next destination, I
thought the short distance would build up my appetite.

Luna Breakfast and Coffee
This was actually an unexpected stopover. I was saving
coffee and desserts after a rice meal. But when I went inside the small café along
Bonifacio Hugh Street, I knew that I could make time for a quick dessert and
just eat the supposed rice meal after.
I wanted to try and grab their coffee, but knowing my body,
I knew that if I drank even a milliliter, I would not be able to sleep a wink
later. I decided on the Pastillas cupcake and the Leche yema.
Initially I thought the serving was too small and does not
justify the bill that I racked up for two modestly looking desserts. But upon
taking my first bite, I knew that it would take some time for someone to finish
off the small sweets. The sweet pastillas and yema base of the desserts are
surprisingly small in such small dessert place. It took a while for me to clean
my plate of all the crumbs because both the desserts are too ssweet.
You see, Luna Café is this rustic looking place. Half the
price you pay is probably the ambience. I could really see myself enjoying a
cup of coffee and a small plate of dessert with a book soon (I plan on treating
myself in the future). I might have raised an eyebrow at first for the price,
but I think the desserts that I ordered are meant to be consumed for a little
longer than it took me to devour them.

The last time I had their shawarma, it was served to me from
a food truck. I was really curious about what it would feel like to eat a meal
from their own place. By the time that I put the metal plate on the table, I
smelled that it was the familiar taste that I was craving for. I ordered a Beef
Shawarma Rice meal with garlic and cheese (yes, my two favorite) sauce with
vegetables on the side.
What I loved about this meal was the rice. It was cooked
fresh, so it tasted warm and delicious. The meat was a little tough, but
bearable. I found the dressing a bit too bland, not like the taste I remember,
but still familiar, which was definitely a plus. I found this stop as the most
comfortable. The restaurant exuded this chill vibe where I felt people coming
from drinking could recover. And why wouldn’t they? Warm food and some meat
will probably help hungover people get their feet back on the ground in no
