of course some expensive restos can take serious money. But the real big bucks comes from the kind of brands that is on the shelves and consumed by just about every household in the country, rich and poor alike. Also don't know why you picked Dorset out as an example there - it contains some of the more affluent parts of Britain.


Well yea I agree

We get to Cebu regularly, but Mactan is just too far off the beaten path for us. You are talking about P400+ taxi just to get there and back, or hours using other modes of transpo.

That P400 will feed us in other circumstances. Many is the meal the wife and I have had for less than the fare alone to get to/from Wombat's.

Someday we will probably make the trip, but it will be for a treat and something different, pretty hard to justify it for a "meal".

I like the bottle of champagne for 50,000 Euros. That must have been one hell of a bottle of wine!

surely refers to a Dom Perignon rose in a Methuselah sized bottle, i.e. 8 bottles of wine in one.

He is perched out on the edge of one of this worlds most malevolent maelstroms.

richer people are richer for a reason.

Well, this is at least true for the Swedish IKEA founder, Ingvar Kamprad. One of the richest in the world but living extremely sparingly.....

I know for a fact that the real affluent Europeans spend HUGE amounts of money on foods and drinks... but maybe not in Dorset or Aberfeldy.
Just look at this bill, paid for just recently at Nikki Beach here in my hometown, in Euros:

How many foods and drinks, do you sell for that, udonthani?

How much did they tip?

Rolls Royce didnt do too badly by catering to the wealthy.
Neither did a lot of other companies in almost every business sector.

..................I think Wombat's is doing it right. Phil's menu is very extensive and has something for everybody. I don't see prices but it has Porterhouse steaks but also hamburgers, pizza, pasta and a lot of Philippino dishes. :cooking:
If possable we'd love to see pictures and prices of the menu items.

His prices are VERY competitive. I have been amazed at the amount of quality food you get for your money there.

trouble is, they're not big spenders. Even though plenty have disposable income, a lot just don't have the energy to spend it in places like his. Their average age is too old. They're homebodies. Besides, the women get first bite at the money and that's where it all goes.

Filipinos are different. Even though - not all, but almost all of them - haven't got as much money, when they've got it, they spend it. There are sound marketing reasons to pitch to to them more than to the expats.




well you may be correct but then the Americans that spend lots of money around here get their check on the 1 and the 15 also /// i think just giving the address is good but a map would be better as street signs are shall we say pre scrap metal at best....
