Had a balikbayan guest and thought it's a good excuse to ..... sort of indulge. Ahem. Pinoy food unhealthy? All meat dishes, hardly any greens? Think again.
In Mall of Asia, Cafe Adriatico and Abe -- both from the LJC resto chain -- sit side by side on the 2nd floor at the back fronting the bay. You can order from the menus of both restos so you get the best of both 😘
But didn't I say "indulge"? For starters, we had the fiddlehead fern salad or "pako" -- very refreshing. We stopped there. Next few orders, we completely caved in.
The lamb adobo is sooo delish. So with the baby squids. But the real killer is the chicharon bulaklak. Most balikbayans miss this. Ok, I miss it too!
There were just the 2 of us dining. So no chance we'd overindulge. I would have wanted to order more but I'd rather walk out on my feet than crawl. Perhaps I should invite a bigger group next time?
