They do get you down. No one is im­mune. Of­ten, dur­ing ty­phoon sea­son, our city seems to be on the verge on sink­ing, an au­to­matic At­lantis, an un­in­ten­tional – and un­pretty – Venice. Then, we’re stuck at home or school or the of­fice, the roads im­pass­able, a Grab nowhere to be found, the wa­ters too deep and dirty to cross, and we can’t even walk to the fal­ter­ing LRT or the over­crowded MRT.

In this is­sue, we of­fer the balm to the banes of our ex­is­tence in Metro Manila. Take so­lace in our fa­vorite places for un­com­pli­cated com­fort food that will surely re­place stress with a smile. After all, it’s the sim­plest of dishes-- es­pe­cially those that bring back warm child­hood mem­o­ries-- that we will al­ways long for on cold stormy days: hot soups and steam­ing rice and fried chicken and pork chops and pies and cakes.
