Bad for the Diet, But Not for the Pocket

by - Saturday, August 25, 2018

Bad Diet is a small art bar and cafe that opened along Estrella street in Makati 3 months ago. It's a place where you can have food and coffee, and enjoy and buy art works at the same time.
To be honest, I didn't feel any kind of excitement prior to visiting this cafe. It's one that is located in an unfamiliar place to me, and it's one of those cafes you can expect to serve mediocre food, especially because of its cheap pricing. But I was wrong.

Bad Diet Mad Wings (6 pcs) P269
Are you up for a challenge? If you love spicy wings, then the Bad Diet Mad Wings is  perfect for you. Just a small bite and I found myself reaching out for a glass of water. 

Hickory BBQ Wings (3 pcs) P149
One of the highlights of our visit to Bad Diet is their hickory BBQ wings. I love having sweet and salty wings as compared to spicy ones in general, and this one really had me craving for more.

Tempura P199
I was really surprised with how their tempura turned out. It was crispy, and was coated with a thin and light batter. The flavor of the dish best comes out when dipped with their tempura sauce.
Shrimp Pasta P`120
The shrimp pasta was good, although it didn't impress me, probably also because I'm really into flavor and herbs when it comes to pastas. 

Grilled Porkchop P149
Bad Diet's grilled porkchop is a must try. The meat wasn't dry and tough, plus the gravy goes so well with rice! Make sure you have it with rice, but then again, their mashed potato also tastes great, so just go carbs on carbs! You're sure to cheat on your diet when you visit Bad Diet after all.

Beef Tapa P139
Bad Diet's beef tapa includes a cp of garlic rice, an egg done your way, and the beef. Before this, I thought I prefer the sweet and salty tapa over any other tapa, but this one changed that. It is something that was done right, even if it seems too simple.

Grilled Hamburger Hawaiian P179
I only got to try the patty and the fries of this grilled hamburger Hawaiian. At first I was reluctant to try the burger patty, with the impression that it is too dry, but thankfully, it wasn't! Forget about the argument on whether pineapples go on pizzas! Question is, do pineapples go on burgers? Well, I think it works. I would want to try it soon.


Caramel Frappe P99 
Choco Java P99

Hot Caramel Macchiato P65
Iced Mocha P95
Their drinks were also good! I rarely have coffee so I am probably not a credible source when it comes to good coffee, but I really liked their frappes. I highly recommend it, especially the caramel frappe.
