THE ECONOMIC downturn has prompted Filipino entrepreneurs to put up businesses and products with hilarious names in a bid to grab customers.

And what catchy names they have come up with!

There’s “Cooking Ng Ina Mo”, a carinderia specializing in home cooked meals on Boni Avenue in Manduluyong City. Just a stone’s throw from it is a competitor called “Cooking Ng Ina Mo Rin”.

From the names, one could easily get an idea about the specialties of the eateries. Take for instance “Caintacky Fried Chicken”.  Where else, but in Cainta, Rizal.

What about “Blue Marilyn”? It’s a sing-along, ihaw-ihaw restaurant on Sucat Avenue in Parañaque.  And “Crispy Per Minute” is another giveaway.  It offers crispy pata while “Cleopata’s” is a bakahan and manukan.

The owner of “Babalik Karinderia” in Sto. Tomas, Batangas, seems to be confident that his customers will return to the eatery.

Urban living has created a demand for laundry service especially among those who don’t have maids.  If they live in Pasig City they can go to “Cinna Von” (play on the tagalog word “sinabon”), a laundrymat.

In Legaspi Village in Makati, the woman who takes orders for “Launderland” is reportedly named Alice.

In San Juan, there’s a janitorial service company called City Cleaners whose slogan is: “Talk dirty to me”.

For those who enjoy beer, they can try “Bali Gulp”, which is just beside Valley Golf on Sumulong highway in Antipolo.

Those who work near Buendia and Taft Avenues could go to “Beery Good”.

A businessman or executive who wants to have a few drinks and feel not being hounded by his wife may have a good reason to tell her that he is in “The Conference Room”, a nightclub formerly near P. Burgos in Makati.

Newsmen, however, prefer the “The Other Office”, a bar in Ermita, Manila, or maybe “O’Beer Time”.


Here are other funny and amusing business names:

“Fagoofyt” (a children’s hair salon on J. Elizalde Avenue in BF Parañaque)
Felix the Cut”“Going Straight” (a hair straightening salon in Megamall)
D’Scalp” (a barbershop on Evangelista Street in Makati)
Curl Up And Dye” (beauty salon)
“Cutis” (hair and skin clinic on South Superhighway)
Beefer 150” (meat shop)
“Common Cents Store” (sari-sari store)
“Happy Birthday Toyo” (a soy sauce brand in the 70’s)
Holland Hopia” (owned by Mr. Ho; next door is Poland Hopia, owned by Mr. Po in Chinatown Manila)
“Bee Tin” (Hopia Factory)
“The Fried of Marikina” ( fried chicken shop)

there’s these karinderias in UP Diliman that was told to me by an officemate. Im not sure if these is the exact names. The first is “Lutong Bahay”. Syempre gaya naman ang katabi kaya naging “Lutong Bahay ng Kapitbahay”. gumaya rin yung katabi nito kaya ang pinangalan “Lutong Bahay ng Katabi ng Kapitbahay”

Hahaha! That’s really funny! Tell your officemate to take pics of the karinderias and we’ll post them here as soon as you guys send them over. That’d be nice to share! 🙂

Komento ni Chuckster

It’s Bee Tin because the name of the person who owns it is Bee Tin.

Komento ni Jejo

Hi Jejo… yeah… I’m quite familiar with the Bee Tin store. If memory serves me right, they even had a stall on the 2nd floor of Virra Mall in the early 1980s just beside the stairs going down to the lobby.
