After college, I continue eating at Mang Jimmy's because I work at Balara, and it is just a stone throw away. When me and my batchmates from work celebrate anything and everything, we found ourselves at Mang Jimmy's. Even with lunch meetings with my team, Mang Jimmy's becomes a venue.

So today, we opt to eat at Mang Jimmy because Tin,one of our team members is a Mang Jimmy's virgin even if she has been a student of UP herself. It was Tin's request to eat lunch here.

Good thing we were early, there's not much people yet. It usually gets crowded with students from UP, Ateneo and Mirium combined with employees from Maynilad, Manila Water and MWSS.
We are early, no hungry crowd yet.
I don't like the Chopsuey that much, it tasted bland. The vegetable is cooked al dente, not too soggy, which I love about in best Chopsueys. I think, it lacks a bit of seasoning. The serving for the chopsuey is very generous, large enough for us five.
The tuna belly and pusit were served in a sizzling plate with sauce. I'm not really a fan of sizzling pusit but it was ok for me. It is very soft you know it is fresh. I ate more of the tuna belly because I like it better.

I love the taste of the Tapa Mix. I think the taste of the food did not change at all. The meat is soft, you won't have a problem chewing. Also, it is flavorful, the entertwine of sweet and salty is right. It's a very satisfying dish that your Mang Jimmy's experience will be incomplete without it. I order this everytime I visit Mang Jimmy's.

I think Mang Jimmy's is heaven's sent to big eaters who are in a budget. It has been a solution for the dry days. Most of the food is sinful but I don't mind indulging. =P
