Wicked Kitchen, Quezon City

Wicked Kitchen popped up several months ago a few meters away from my office. It has an interesting facade, so my friend Chi and I decided to give it a shot.

Since that first visit, we've been there several times, when the weather is nice and we are up for a (very) short walk.

The day before yesterday, I drove through my usual haunt, but the attendant on duty told me that they were out of stock. Out of stock? I thought to myself, rather petulantly. How can they run out of corn? Or ice, for that matter? These ingredients are easily available from any grocery. If I sound obsessive, that's because I was used to having this treat every day, and I didn't want to go through withdrawal.

Anyway, I went to the same drive through yesterday, and they gave me the same answer. "Out of stock." I refused to give up, so I went to another branch. Again, they didn't have any M…
