    1. parang naintindihan naman ni Kim, kaya nga may "no matter what" sya. No matter what everyone says, good or bad, still a proud CEBUANA. Ganun lang yun besh.

  3. Dear Mr. Matti,

    What's bizarre to you may be breakfast for me. That's always been one of the profoundly beautiful things about food. Curry is not just India, as India is not just curry. North Vietnam is known for Pho and the south is known for Banh Mi. But their country is known for both and more. There are limitless versions of Mee and Kway Teow around Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia (and Indonesia has lechon too). And not all of Thailand is raving over Pad Thai.

    Food, much like our English accents, is always different in every country, region, province, city, barangay, even in every household. I bet your mom makes kare-kare differently from my Manileño dad. But that should not mean one is better than the other. Food, most importantly, is a personal experience. What's four star to you may be sauteed shit for me.

    I call it good research because they dug so deep that even some Cebuanos wouldn't probably be so familiar. But how we react - curious to discover, or bitter because we weren't featured - depends entirely on our character.

    And before you even think poverty porn, I would like you to see how much Land Cruisers and excecutive sedans park at this small one-way eskinita at Guadalupe, lining up for Doming's ngohiong. Observe how the successful market stall owners of Carbon market look after their vegetable stores in the morning, and get picked up by their chauffeur-driven luxury vans at the end of the day. And drop your jaw at how the rich and famous of Cebu walk on gravel in their stilettos at Sugbo Mercado, the biggest, noisiest, most crowded food market in the country.

    I challenge you, Mr. Matti. I will tour you around Cebu on a streetfood buffet. We will go to all those places rightfully featured by Netflix and then some. But I will do all that under one condition - whether you prove yourself right about our food and culture, or prove yourself terribly wrong and realize that we do offer some of the best streetfood in this country - I don't ever want to see your face in my province ever again.

    Yours truly and always hungry,

    JD

    2. Send mo yan sa kanya. Ganda ng pagkasulat mo. Pwedeng open letter. Hehe.

    3. You’re barking at the wrong tree. Doon ka kay Matti magpadala nyang ala-MMK mo ba sulat. Aysows, kala mo aping-api at niyurakan ang pagkatao nitong mga nasa Cebu.

    4. Yes sayang ito bro kung hindi mababasa ni Matti. Ipost mo din sa fb or ig account. Kaganda pa naman supalpal sya nito

    5. Wow. Goosebumps. Well said. I meant written. I approve this.

    6. 1:02 Ipahiram mo kay Kim kahit ilang linya lang ng post mo hahaha

    7. Here we go again with the Manileno thing. I don’t know, not from Manila and if people are not familiar with your food, educate them rather than shaming them.

    8. Ay, day, 2:26, I am sure may pagpaparating nyan kay Matti. Pak na Pak ka JD. That reminds me of a city in Indonesia where we lived for almost two years. There is a hole in the wall there where they have the best mie goreng. The place is dark, not cozy, but the customers come in their Mercedezes and BMWs... and yes, even our adobos and paksiws have different versions depending on the regions.

    9. I think ang ibig sabihin ni Matti sa poverty porn ay hindi literally na pang mahirap ang food, more like instead na food ang i-sell yung pagiging mahirap, yung paawa. Corrent me if I’m wrong nabasa ko lang sa explaination niya.

    10. Kaya dito pinost ni 1:02 AM, dahil wala siyang contact info ni Matti, besides mas makakarating kay Matti kung naipost sa soc med ang message.

    3. Wala namang kumitang project yang si Matti. Puro flop. Sawsawero din. Akala mo ganda ng itsura kung makapamintas sa iba.

  6. Wow! Matti who you?!? Revered Local and foreign food critics go eat at hole in the wall establishments with no qualms. Example na lang is Anthony Bourdain. Kumakain sila ng street food kasi doon nila masasample Kung ano yun authentic flavors specific to a culture or place. Matti just showed how ignorant he is when it comes to food. Kung makapag Salita ka Kala mo fine dining ka everyday eh awra mo pang isawan.

  8. Sa lahat ng nag comment dito, have you read erik matti's entire tweet? Hahahaha As a chef i agree with him! Read it before you weep.

  9. Hindi naman talaga maganda ang pagkakagawa ng netflix. Masyado madrama

    1. Yup. And the Cebu episode seemed so staged

  10. Intindinhin nyo kasi si matti. Wag puro pinoy pride. May point naman kasi sya

    1. Sometimes kung ano pa yung tinawag nyang "poverty porn" yun ang masarap. Gusto nya empanada ang isama, it's not unique—kaya nga yung mga weird na pagkain ang isinama para mamulat ang mga mata natin lahat na may ganyang street food sa Pinas. Poverty porn my ass.

      Delete
    2. Wala syang point. I saw the entire episode, it was beautifully done. Hindi naman madrama. Kilalang chef yun at isang respected food critic yun nag recommend nung mga places na yun sa producers. Napaka uplifting and light nga ng presentation. Di kasi kayo foodie Kaya di kayo nakakain tindi.

      Delete
  11. Mr. matti stick with being a director and not be a critic of food.. directing seems to affect your palate or does it mirror your career also? when you say its awful you must be saying about your career LOL foodISlife

  12. MAY GUERA BA KIMMY? BAT PALAGI KANG NAKA PEACE!!! KALOKA KA

  13. Irresponsible. Instead of bringing clarity to the debate, she's creating more divisiveness.

  14. I really do not understand the complaints about Direk matti's streetfood. maganda naman ang pagkakagawa. na feature naman ang lechon. cicharon, ngohyong,at ibat iba pang streetfood sa cebu. At na mention din doon na basta masarap ang niluto mo, mahirap ,mayaman babalik balikan yan. So what is the problem?

    ReplyDelete
  15. The netizen comment somewhat confirms my suspicion that what really touched a nerve was the "poverty" comment. Ang mga pinoy talaga ayaw tawagin mahirap kahit totoo. Pero pag bibigyan ng freebies or pera na hindi pinaghirapan, open arms. While Matti's rant bordered on ignorant, much of the indignation stems from the wrong reason too . At eto nakikisawsaw pa na may "no matter what" pa.
