ordering was a challenge for the both of us. The menu was practically in tagalog with little english translations. just the simple word 'buko' caused a little confusion, prolonging a five minutes order into 15minutes.
*buko pandan shake and papaya milk juice*
I had buko pandan shake which was one of the restaurant's new specialties. 'Buko' actually means young coconut. The drink had a unique taste to it... something i encourage all to try. Stef was not too adventurous when it came to beverages though, choosing to go for papaya milk juice instead.
steamed rice came in a cute rotan woven plate.
the waiter recommended Lechon Kawali. Pan fried three layer pork with some special sauce. Very greasy and fattening indeed. there goes the diet.
The waiter said that Lechon Kawali was best 'devoured' with vegetables. Pinakbet has five different vegetables cooked together with some kind of filipino belacan. Eggplant, ladies finger, pumpkin and long beans with a missing fifth vegetable. That was replaced with pork instead. i know MORE PORK. i think i should stick to a strict anti pork diet now.
The dinner was reasonably cheap, RM29.70. Lechon Kawali RM 10.00, Pinakbet RM 8.00, steam rice (x2) RM2.00, Papaya Juice RM4.00, Buko Pandan Shake RM3.00, 10% service charge RM2.70 and...
stef as dinner companion PRICELESS :)
