We just had to try another restaurant before New Year 2014, and hubby suggested Tambayan sa Kanto at The Podium which offers authentic Filipino eats. We ordered Kwek-Kwek, Dynamite Crispy Tadyang ng Baka and Pinakbet Ilokano.
Because our 7-year-old son has no idea what Kwek-Kwek is and what it tastes like, we ordered this for him. He liked these deep-fried crusted quail eggs dipped in ketchup, while I enjoyed mine dipped in vinegar.
Hubby and I both agreed to order Dynamite. This didn’t only have chili fingers; it also had pork and cheese inside. It was very crispy on the outside and delightfully stuffed inside.
Crispy Tadyang ng Baka is one of their bestsellers. These deep-fried beef ribs were a bit chewy and dry but flavorful and crunchy nonetheless.
I really liked this Pinakbet Ilokano. The local veggies used were fresh and cooked just right, and it was seasoned perfectly with bagoong isda (salted anchovies).
I admit, I ate more than I should that night because I couldn’t resist the temptation to indulge with the food served on our table.
