Needless to say that it's not exactly my favorite Penang dish or to borrow Bourdain's very own words - it's not the one thing that 'I gotta have' when I am in these parts.

While the Philippines is not yet a 'cashless country,' I still think that innovations such as this especially in the restaurant industry, is a good first step in the right direction.
