Pinoy Ingenuity

Ever heard of that carinderia along Boni Avenue in Mandaluyong?  They aptly call the restaurant “Cooking Ng Ina Mo.”  The ingenious pinoy has once again proven that despite the difficulties, our sense of humor is alive and well.    Silly as it may sound; wacky business names provides not only an easy laugh but also a sense of hope.  This restaurant must have inspired a rival that they put up their own carinderia calling it “Cooking Ng Ina Mo Rin!”  From these outrageous names, one will get the idea about the specialties of these businesses.  From the Internet, I have gathered a few hilarious names.  Take your pick:
