10 Restaurants for Your Unli-Rice Obsession
Rice is life.
(SPOT.ph) When news broke that unlimited rice could get banned, everyone living by the motto "rice is life" (which, we guess, is 99% of the country's population) was left in utter panic. Sen. Cynthia Villar has clarified initial reports to say that there will be no ban, but rather the comment was "just a genuine expression of concern" about the effects of "eating too much rice."
Either way, you know what they say: Desperate times call for desperate measures. Aside from the perennial unli-rice favorite Mang Inasal (where consuming the most scoops of rice with a single stick of chicken barbecue is an achievement), we round up several more places for your bottomless-rice fix.
