Raise your glass and let’s drink to that — virtually

Lipsmackingly good food for your next e-numan sesh

Published Nov 27, 2020 3:00 am

I get it, you’re a social butterfly who needs to bond with friends over alcohol. Not even quarantine can stop you from raising your glass, but thankfully, technology has intervened and made virtual drinking possible.

And let me guess: You’re here because you’re hosting an e-numan session soon. You already have everything covered (drinks, games, kuwento) except for one — food. But what’s an e-numan without pulutan, right? So here are a few suggestions.

Chicken wings

Chicken wings are currently everyone’s obsession. It goes well with beer and wine as much as it does rice. General Wings and Ribs offers seven different flavors: Buffalo Soldier, Garlic Parmesonofagun, Soy, Yes Soy!, Mighty Mustard, Garlic Gunner, Plain Jane, and Korean Honey Lemon.

Boneless chicken

If you’re too soused to bother removing bones from your chicken, try boneless chicken from Buffalo’s Wings N’ Things. There are three variations to choose from: yangnyeom, bacon n’ cheddar drizzle and truffle parmesan drizzle.

Potato fries with chicken pops

Salty potato fries usually complement bitter drinks. But if you want something that will slightly overpower the alcohol’s taste, go for Potato Corner’s cheese, sour cream or BBQ flavored fries. Flavored chicken pops are a bonus!

Shawarma

Beer is best paired with strong flavored dishes like shawarma. The spices used in shawarma are perfect to cut through the bitter flavor of your drink. Shawarma Shack also lets you choose your preferred meat: chicken, beef or pork.

Shrimp in a bag

Seafood is another fave pulutan. Since it’s commonly sweet and savory, it has similar effects to alcohol as shawarma. There’s Shrimp in a Bag from Choobi Choobi, which is basically a bucket of garlic butter shrimp with corn. You can even request the level of spiciness!

Mexican pork ribs

Y’all thought we’re done with meat dishes? Hell nah. Mexican-style ribs also have strong flavors (just like Middle Eastern dishes) — making them good alcohol partners. Some Mexicans even put beer directly in the marinade.
