If you want to hang out in a place where the atmosphere is festive and vibrant, then you should drop by Pedro ‘n Coi. Owned by husband-and-wife tandem Lloyd Peter Lee (Pedro) and 2011 Ms. Universe 3rd runner-up Shamcey Supsup (Coi), Pedro ‘n Coi (a.k.a. Pinoy Pop Chibog) offers Pinoy dishes with a twist.
Everything about this place is Pinoy, from the sari-sari store set-up to the jeepney and the banderitas reminiscent of fiesta in the barrio.
The menu is even more exciting with unique names given to their dishes and drinks, like Sizzling Bulalowlowlow, Joey de Lechon, Anak ng Tokwa and Luis Mansanas, to name a few. We ended up ordering their Pata Kang Kare-Kare Ka and Inasal Raymundo.
Pata Kang Kare-Kare Ka uses pork knuckles that were baked first before getting deep-fried. It is served with vegetables, peanut sauce and homemade bagoong (shrimp paste). Ordering this is like getting the best of two classic Pinoy favorites crispy pata and kare-kare, which hubby and I both love. The pork skin is crispy while the meat is soft. The creamy peanut sauce and the slightly sweet bagoong delightfully complemented the crispy-outside-but-soft-inside pork knuckles.
This Inasal Raymundo consists of savory chicken fillet that’s baked then grilled and served with pickled cucumber and radish. My son liked this a lot. I enjoyed it, too. It’s tender, juicy and flavorful.
Well, I must say that cucumber and lemonade go well together. This Cucumber Lemonade drink is light and cool and refreshing.
Pedro ‘n Coi is an Instagram-worthy place that will satisfy your Filipino food cravings. You’ll leave the place feeling satisfied and light-hearted.
