Are you a big eater? If you are, then this list talks to you.
Inspired by Mikey Bustos’ Big Eater YouTube video, O and I drove to the south, specifically to SM Southmall, to find comfort food for big eaters like us.
It was our first time to visit SM Southmall, which added excitement to scout for meals that will satisfy big eaters.
Finding a parking slot was not tricky and costly. There is an open parking space near the entrance, convenient if you are heading to the foodcourt.
During lunchtime on a weekday, the big eaters at the foodcourt are mostly students and parents. On weekends, the crowd is mixed up with kids and adults, all wanting to consume big yet affordable meals.
Check out our Big Eater top picks:

1. Chicken Teriyaki & Tempura, Tokyo Joe

Chicken Teriyaki & Tempura (Php 210)
Store: Tokyo Joe
When it’s Japanese we’re talking about, I go all out. My heart screams out loud for anything Japanese. If you can relate with me, you might want to consider Tokyo Joe for big Japanese meals. This Chicken Teriyaki & Tempura set is just right for a big eater.

 2. Grilled Squid + Lechon Kawali Meal, Inihaw Express

Grilled Squid + Lechon Kawali Meal (Php 199)

Give Grilled Squid & Lechon Kawali Meal a go if you can’t decide between seafood or meat. With 2 cups of rice side by side, what else can you ask for? Oh, maybe a glass of coke will complete the meal.

3. Chicken + Spanish Rice Meal, Kipp’s Chicken

Chicken + Spanish Rice Meal (Php 159)
Store: Kipp’s Chicken
You never go wrong with fried chicken if you want to eat huge! 2pcs. of Chicken and Spanish Rice meal from Kipp’s pumps my hunger to eat more. At a reasonable budget, I wouldn’t think twice to add an extra wing. Hehe.

4. Curry Beef Pepper Rice with Cheese, Pepper Lunch Express

Big eaters who prefers hot sizzling plates has Pepper Lunch Express as the best choice. Curry Beef Pepper Rice is made more interesting with curry and cheese flavor on top of sizzling rice and beef.

 5. Fried Chicken + Batchoy Meal, Ted’s Oldtimer Lapaz Batchoy

Fried Chicken + Batchoy Meal (Php 145)

It’s Masskara Festival season and I really miss Bacolod. To cope up with that, I tried out Ted’s Fried Chicken and Batchoy Meal for only P145. Including a cup of rice, I was filled up easily, satisfying my cravings for Bacolod food.

6. Grilled Tuna Belly Meal, Reyes Barbecue

Grilled Tuna Belly (Php 245)

Bulked Grilled Tuna Belly with java rice is one sure choice if you’re after value for your money. You don’t have to sacrifice quality of your food on this. It’s a fact that the taste of grilled tuna was fresh, without the tongue itch.

 7. Lechon + Lechon Sisig Meal, Lydia’s Lechon

Lechon + Lechon Sisig Meal (Php 165)

Lechon lovers are definite big eaters. If health condition is not an issue, Lechon and Lechon Sisig Meal will bring big smile to your face. Lydia’s Lechon is a proven brand, so you don’t need to worry about the meaty goodness of every lechon piece you get.

8. Seafood Paella, Seafood Grill

Seafood Paella (Php 199)

I warn you not to expect the classic flavorful Valencian paella rice in this Seafood Paella. Yet for its price, quantity and quality of seafood, you are already fully loaded like having a feast. One serving is good for 1-2 persons.

 9. Super Beef Tapsilog, Tapsi Plus

Super Beef Tapsilog (Php 115)
Store: Tapsi Plus
 I love tapsilog! Time of day doesn’t matter for a plate of Super Beef Tapsilog I recently discovered in SM Southmall. This Tapsilog is in love with a heart-shaped egg and a cup of garlic rice. Cut in smaller pieces, which brings out the stronger flavors of tapa marinade.

10. Porterhouse, Sizzling Plate

Porterhouse (Php 195)
Store: Sizzling Plate
 All meat, the simple happiness of carnivores. Without a doubt, Porterhouse at an affordable price enters my list of comfort meals. I don’t think you’ll be against this if you’re a steak lover and big eater yourself.
