Because hubby has eaten here quite a number of times already with his office mates and because he’s been raving about the delicious fare they had here, he brought us to KKK last Saturday, July 8, 2011.
We learned from our Philippine History class that KKK stands for “Kataas-taasan, Kagalang-galangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan,” also known as Katipunan. Katipunan was a secret society of Filipino patriots, which aimed to gain independence from Spain through revolution.
Now, what does KKK in KKK restaurant stand for? I read from Joy Angelica Subido’s article that KKK here means “Kainan sa Kalye Kanluran.” The owners named their restaurant this way because their first food outlet was located on West (Kanluran) Avenue. KKK serves Filipino dishes with a contemporary twist.
While waiting for our orders, we were given a plateful of complimentary kropek, which my son loved.
This was a yummy appetizer, and it’s also quite filling! This is special lumpiang shanghai served with homemade sweet chili sauce.
We all loved this! They used real sampaloc (tamarind) for their sinigang broth. It had the right sourness, and it was rightly salted, too, plus, they really used lechon baboy (roast pig) here. This was really delicious!
If you’re a bangus (milkfish) lover just like me, I’m sure you’ll like this. This is crispy-fried bangus belly with singkamas (Mexican turnip) and celery served with sauce made from ripe mangoes.
We really enjoyed our stay and our food at KKK.
