Daft Punk x Coca-Cola

Daft Coke

I used to collect a lot of Coca-Cola memorabilia when I was younger. I think I need to refresh the collection.

According to hypebeast.com, these bottles will be available packaged in a collector’s box exclusively through Colette in Paris.

I need these in my life to make me harder, better, stronger and faster.

Man Eats: Hermanos Taco Shop

Hermanos Taco Shop

Last Sunday, I decided to try out Hermanos Taco Shop in Gilmore, Q.C. since many claim that this place has the most authentic Mexican food in Manila.

As you’d expect, Hermanos’ menu has the usual burritos, tacos and quesadillas. What really stood out from the menu was their Rolled Tacos. I was excited to try this since I was watching the Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate…with My Hands the other night and they featured rolled tacos from Chico’s Tacos in El Paso, Texas.

This wasn’t the best thing I ever ate. Not with my hands. Not with utensils. Not in a box. Not with a fox. Not in a house. Not with a mouse. I do not like them [that much], Man I Am. The “hefty” serving of tortilla chips didn’t really help either. The beef was so-so, the chicken was bland and the fried tortilla wrapper was too thick and it masked even more of taste. Sayang, I really had high hopes for this dish.

Up next, the Beef Fajita Burrito (no beans, please). I’ve heard complaints that the burrito in Hermanos isn’t big enough, most probably because they’ve gotten used to the huge servings in Ristras, but I, for one, am glad that the burrito here doesn’t make me feel like I ate extra extra extra rice. Taste-wise, the burrito was actually good, especially when you add a bit of their homemade hot sauce and extra cilantro.

Given that we live in a country where Mexicali and Tia Maria’s have been the benchmarks for Mexican fare for the longest time, I’d say that Hermanos isn’t that bad.

Is it authentic, though? Jury’s still out on that one.

Best. Soda. Ever.

This delightful Ginger Ale has a sparkling personality, with a little nip of ginger, and the perfect kiss of honey. Everybody should be so lucky.
