I remember watching Sonny Daza with his legendary mom Nora cooking up a show on TV. I've bought some of their cookbooks though I admit I'm a disaster in the kitchen. I'm the type who'd read a recipe, imagine the steps, then "experiment" or ad lib my way through the cooking session.
The stuffed pechay on the menu caught our fancy. That with the shrimps with aligue sauce plus the tostadong adobo was LUNCH for the 4 of us. We like the tinapa-stuffed pechay but found the adobo run-of-the-mill. Not as "tostado" as the menu suggested, and the aligue sauce was certainly lacking in flavor. Didn't taste "sinful" at all.
Midway through lunch, one of us kept overhearing this Caucasian diner raving over his dish of sigarilyas with dried fish cooked in coconut milk. Thank God we gave in to temptation and promptly ordered the same. That saved the day. That and our desserts of sago cake and maja blanca.
Overall, lunch was ok. But I'd really just rave over the sigarilyas and the desserts. But lunch was reasonably-priced so we should really head back and discover the better dishes. Till next time!
