The food issue of Rogue magazine (May 2014) is one of the best locally published food centric magazines I have EVER seen. Yes, I think it’s THAT good. Jam-packed with interesting articles and fabulous photography, it was late off the presses and I just received a copy today.
If you could only buy one food related local magazine this year, THIS should be it.
Snappy run-downs of the Metro’s best (ingredients, dishes, places to eat) as well as features of foreign locales and food, features on the Moment Group of Burger Bar, Namnam and Phat Pho make for good reading and everything is quite visually arresting.
Neal Oshima’s cover photo is stunning as usual. But some of the imagery within is shocking yet beautiful in the extreme.
The Teen has two brief articles in this issue, one a quick run-down of the Metro’s best milkshakes, and another a guide to different types of fried rice. She is currently an intern in the fashion department at Rogue, but got roped into writing a few food articles for the hefty food issue.
And yours truly even has a little blurb on lard, what else? But even if we didn’t have any articles in this issue, I would definitely say it was more than worth the PHP220 cover price. Browse through the issue before you buy it and see what I am raving about!
