Isko Moreno: Remove my photo on food truck
MANILA, Philippines – Manila Mayor Isko Moreno on Tuesday vowed to have his image removed from a food truck serving free hot meals.
“Netizens have a point on this one,” Moreno admitted on Twitter, adding that he already told the donor of the food truck to remove his name and photo affixed on the vehicle.
“Siguro ilagay na lang po nila ‘Kusina ng Maynila’ o kaya ‘Kusina para sa Batang Maynila,” Moreno said.
He also made this promise: “Next flag ceremony, wala na po iyan.”
Netizens have a point on this one. Nakisuyo na po ako sa nag-donate po ng food truck na huwag na lang ilagay ang mukha at pangalan ko. Siguro ilagay na lang po nila “Kusina ng Maynila” o kaya “Kusina para sa Batang Maynila.”
Next flag ceremony, wala na po iyan. 😊 https://t.co/hK8ONLH4D8

A netizen earlier called out the Manila mayor after a “Kusina ni Isko” food truck was spotted near city hall.
“Bawal epal diba po @IskoMoreno ???” a netizen named Erika said.
In a tweet on Monday, the Manila Public Information Office clarified that the “Kusina ni Isko” is not a city government project and that no public funds were used.
"Kusina ni Isko" is not a public project hehe. No public funds were used. These were donated by his friends and supporters, who wanted to put the Mayor's name on the food trucks. :) Nevertheless, we thank them for the food they provided during the flag ceremony. https://t.co/NGAlqJgiFZ

“These were donated by his friends and supporters, who wanted to put the mayor’s name on the food trucks,” the tweet read.
“Nevertheless, we thank them for the food they provided during the flag ceremony.”
The “Kusina ni Isko” food truck first made an appearance as Moreno led his first flag raising ceremony at the newly-refurbished Bonifacio Shrine. /gsg
