My good friend, Arnil from OLD school was in town for a 2week break from doctorate school in London. Naturally, I was in charge of choosing the restaurant. So i picked Terry's Selection, thinking that he must be tired of eating fish and chips! (Ofcourse, I didn't choose a filipino resto because it would only be proper to eat filipino food at home, so I was saving that for that) Anyway, when he asked me what to order, I said "CHORIZO ON PIGGY BACK!", to his horror, he exclaimed "CHORIZO, NANAMAN?!" If only I'd known that back in his place, his spanish neighbors would eat chorizo for breakfast, lunch and sometimes dinner too, I would have chosen a different place!

This is flambeed with Sherry Brandy. (My friend Haidee's comment: Barcino's chistorra is better! )
*Have to go back and try the paella and jamon serrano.
