Scout - - CULTURE - –LEX CELERA, editorial as­sis­tant

This Amer­i­can-turned-Ja­panese con­ve­nience store isn’t re­ally as pop­u­lar as its com­peti­tors, but if you do nd your­self in­side one, you’re in for one hell of a treat. The ta­bles are equipped with out­lets (at least in the big, fancy Makati branch), they have their own karinde­ria serv­ing hot meals with un­lim­ited rice, and they’ve got their own ex­clu­sives like bam­boo char­coal soft-serves and green tea mix ice cream. I don’t re­ally know why they would have that kind of avor, but a aw­son store is crazy good, but also crazy sad, con­sid­er­ing that con­ve­nience stores aren’t re­ally that con­ve­nient if they’re far from wher­ever you are. The peo­ple who live near one are truly blessed. ou could prob­a­bly go a week just mix­ing and match­ing what­ever hot food they have for sale and you wouldn’t get tired. That’s the mil­len­nial cheapskate’s dream.

Lex got: Chicken adobo, Hong Kong milk tea to wash it all down, and choco­late soft-serve ice cream for dessert
