Forget SWS, Here’s The Great ACS Survey: ChowKing or Tapa King?

FF7E3CFF-EA6B-4F8A-9622-F80C305BC9ABMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – If you’re sick and tired of politics and surveys, you’re not alone.

The good news is that we have just the right thing for you: another survey.  Not just any survey like the SWS, but a juicy, delicious and apolitical survey:  Kris Aquino vs. Baste Duterte.

Well, not really. It’s a survey of your fast food preference between two kings: ChowKing and Tapa King.

So go ahead, vote in our ACS (Adobo Chronicles Survey) poll and let us know which of the two fastfood chains you prefer. Or which endorser — Aquino or Duterte!


Adobo Chronicles’ Foods That Have Withstood The Taste Of Time

IMG_4807.PNGMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – This is your one chance to advocate for your favorite food. Not just any food, but food that has withstood the test of time.

We’re calling this “Foods That Have Withstood The Taste Of Time.”

You might have  a favorite snack, item from a restaurant or delicacy from food stalls or street vendors that has resisted the winds of change in the midst of the commercialization and gourmetization of the lowly and authentic food from your years growing up.

We welcome submissions of photos which we, in turn, will convert into a meme with your name on it, plus our sought-after Adobo Chronicles logo of course (see photo samples.)

So what are you waiting for?  This is your path to your three minutes (or more) of fame!
