Nothing beats good old Pinoy dishes. I believe that every culture feels that their own is simply the best. Wherever you are in the world, you would always long for and always find a dish that’s close to home. A fairly new restaurant in town, Kambingan ni Apong is one resto that surely delivers in that aspect. With their dishes putting the spotlight on goat meat, let’s see how one’s celebration will be a good one at this restaurant.
Their space was quite small with enough seating both inside and out. The restaurant itself had this warm and welcoming feel. Overall feel was very casual. This is actually a part of a soon-to-be new food and retail destination, Arkipelago.
Highlighting more on Ilocano goat dishes, there were others too that balanced out their menu. But yes, the spotlight is on the goat. Why so? Well, it started with Apong (yes, he’s a real person!) courting his wife. He was served with multiple goat dishes that he eventually loved them. And now, he is sharing that love with us. With their credo of only using “fresh produce and meat of high quality”, let’s see how the dishes here fare up.
It has been awhile since I last ate this. And boy was this a goodie! It had the right crunch and taste.
Their version of adobo truly won my heart. The flavor was quite different from the other adobo that I’ve tasted before. It might seem oily but I didn’t mind that at all. It was good to slather on that oil onto your rice, take some goat meat in and enjoy the full bite. This was the fave of other bloggers that night too. One could get this at half serving for P150 and at a full one at P275.
This was good too! I liked how rich the sauce was here that yes, one must place it on the rice. Priced at P170 for half serving and P295 for the full size, this is one enjoyable dish.
The sauce here was just right as you could taste that peanut flavor in. No serving options for this but it’s definitely good for sharing too.
Eat this one at ease for this is a goodie! I loved how tender the meat was while maintaining that crunchy exterior.
For its price, this is a little steep as the serving is not that much. But what’s outstanding here is the sauce which makes up for the serving of the beef.
This was a good break from all the other meat dishes served. This was fried well and had a lot of fish meat in.
And we’re back to pork! Hehe. The aroma of this dish easily wafted in the room. It just smells so enticing that once you do, you’ll definitely order one. Tastewise, it did not disappoint. It was very meaty and really tasty.
This sisig or that sisig? Hmm…I honestly couldn’t choose! They both tasted good but for newbies out there, their goat sisig is a must try too. It was my first time trying out this variant, and it was a good break from the usual pork kind.
And we’re ending this bloggers’ dinner on a sweet note. I loved how this flan was creamy and not that sweet. It was quite dense which I always look for in a leche flan.
And is this the perfect resto for celebration and good times? 100% yes! It has this very casual feel that makes one right at home. To be honest, one could spend hours here just chilling and enjoying the dishes. All the dishes were rightly priced. You could even get certain dishes, which are mostly their goat ones, at either half or full serving. To be honest, I don’t recall much having eaten goat but this was a good and satisfying experience for me. The meat was well-cooked that it’s making me a fan of that meat.
So if you’re looking to try something new but still something that’s close to home, give this restaurant a try to make sure you have one good time. 🙂
