What I enjoy most though is going to the local malls when my wife and kids go also. For me, that is fun. Some of the malls have pretty good entertainment from time to time too.
Has anyone tried the Dari-Queen (DQ) at SM Clark? Now that really is a taste of home!
OMG a dairy queen really? Is it the same food?many of the foods from states aren't.

It's just a small stand in the center of the mall. For now, All they serve are the different ice creams. But yes, it is exactly the same as at home. Delicious without any doubt. Caution though---you'll gain 10 pounds just looking at the stuff!!

Yea, it not only gets expensive (US prices there), but it will put on the weight. We were there last Saturday and seems to be a favorite place of the expats and other visitors to the country. Just wish they would eventually expand and offer the full menu as it is at home.
Call me crazy but I still like Jollibee and even Chow King!

Oh for sure.. The Philippines has a lot of great foods and many of them we enjoy at home each day. I do cut down on the rice though as to me it's like eating sticky, tasteless glue. Luckily my wife and kids are great cooks and able to make lots of the local food as well as Western dishes. My one child, a 10 year old daughter makes a killer spaghetti sauce. Then I end up eating too much; but what the heck---we only live once-Hahaha...

Rice I agree.....I say its like eating paper.....no taste. I usually cover it with mushroom gravyn..gulay or such to add flavorn. I even do it like grits for breakfast ;add milk and sugar and its masarap!
