And I’m back in this hole. Yeah…I know. I was supposed to do a weekly thing on this but it took me sometime to be back. And a lot has changed since then as more restos (not only here) popped up in this mall. As for this hole, this was one of the new ones. Time to see what kind of light this match makes.
I opted for their Rice Plate which consists of atsuete rice, refried mongo, pico de gallo, ensalada, onions, sour cream, spicy sauce and the main dish. Carefully plated, the whole plate looks colorful and very enticing. Makes one want to immediately jump and chomp this up. 😀
According to one of the servers, their bestsellers are their Chicken Inasal and Sisig. I got the latter. And was so glad that I did. Topped with some chicharon, it added that slight saltiness in the meat. It was a very flavorful sisig that you would want to mix in with the other components of the plate. I tried placing some of the sour cream in that muted the flavor a bit. I did like the spicy one more as it gave it that interesting kick.
When you think about it, all the ingredients work together to make one balanced dish. A bit on the healthy side with all the greens and salsa in it. But yeah…the sisig doesn’t account much for that, hence, the whole balance act. As its bright red sign shine, this Taqueria Filipina is a good take on that Fil-Mex buzz. At the very core of it, it’s very Filipino as shown on all the meat dishes on their menu. Aside from the rice plate, you can have it burrito, street taco or tostado style. You can really choose what you want to have on your plate. And I like that kind of freedom where you can customize so as to make for one enjoyable dining experience. With good prices to back up their tasty dishes, let this match light you up. 🙂
