You know how social media’s algorithm is based on posts you frequently ‘like,’ or tend to gravitate to? Well, my social media feeds have a steady flow of food-related updates – from tantalizing photographs of crave-worthy plates, to easy-to-follow recipes, cooking demos and fun food reviews that all but leave me drooling.

Right now, it’s late at night, I am currently PMS-ing, and in my life that just means I want to bite into anything and everything. The Lays potato chips sitting a few feet away with a heaping dollop of the sour cream I have downstairs. An ensaimada – the same one I had 2 weeks ago that was buttery and rich and sweet and salty. Tacos. The Pancakehouse ones. Or no maybe the soft kind that you can find in Taco Bell… or do I want a donut instead?

I am getting carried away.

Hence this post. Instead of giving into my cravings, I will share my top 5 Fast Food favorites. When I do allow myself to indulge – and I realize ‘indulge’ may be the wrong term as I am about to share with you my cheap eats – so instead let’s say when I really want to treat my taste buds and be a little bit naughty, these are my go-to orders. Whether sitting quietly in a packed chain, or in my bed late at night while my husband is asleep beside me (and yes I am usually alone when I do this – consider it my “me” time), I cannot deny the feeling of utter bliss these moments bring me. Mababaw and kaligayahan is the only way to describe it.
