Bold in colors, Eat My English sports a contrasting black and bright red hue accents in walls and chairs at the time of my visit. They also have an enlarged cartoon strip at one wall. But one thing that amuses me while waiting for my order, are the numerous wall photos of phrases and signage that are well - grammatically incorrect, but amusing nonetheless. 

Read "the feeling is actual, we make modern antique furniture; George eat your hat out; this is our rooster of clients; all of a suddenly; what are friends are for; guys lets call it tonight."

Interesting interiors of Eat My English

Eat My English began more than three years ago as a pet project of siblings Dennis and Ian Gan who visualized a Pinoy restaurant serving nothing but comfort food which you can order no matter how crude your English may be. At the height of call centers, the catchy name evolved making its menu humorous as well. Its Pika Pika Boo category is all about appetizers which range from Php45 to Php160, starting with Mani Pakyaw, Senator Cheese Sticks, Chicken Chupa Chups, and Nacho Libre - a take from the Hollywood film but is definitely not for free.

Chicken Sotanghon served at Eat My English

Eat My English is open 24/7 and has an array of dishes for any craving. From the simple Chicken Sotanghon at Php85 under the banner When it Rains it Pours. It's a bowl of overflowing sotanghon noodles with generous portions of tender chicken meat.

Ultimate Comfort Food is perfect for barkadas

While chatting with friends, Ultimate Comfort Food is all you need. A platter consisting of anything fried, battered chicken strips, fish fingers, calamares, chicken wings, meatballs and fries served with French dressing and garlic mayo. Two sizes priced at Php525 and Php795 can be enjoyed to your liking.

Para Kang Bata Ka another humorous name from Eat My English's menu

For crispy pata addicts like myself, Pata Kang Bata Ka ranging from Php385 (huge) and Php 425 (very huge) is a humongous slab of pata, fried to a perfect golden brown while retaining its juicy and flavorful meat and crispilicious skin.
