Little Bro’s girlfriend (not to be confused with Baby’s Bro’s girlfriend who has been providing the Taiwan post pics.) recently had a birthday. After doing the usual celebrations that college students do, we decided to have a quiet family dinner with her as well.
She is Filipino so she was craving some Filipino food. Little Bro decided to go to Manila Fast Food to pick up some food for the dinner. I took a few quick pics before everything was devoured. Sorry about the poor quality of the pictures.
Pancit, a stir fried vermicelli dish, is very very popular with my family. My sister goes nuts for it. I’m not sure what makes it so addicting, but it is. So we ordered half a tray of pancit ($30). It was scary how fast this disappeared. The tray was big and full and we only had about a serving bowl left of leftovers by the end of the night.
Lumpia, which are filipino egg rolls, are also a popular favorite in my house. We ordered 100 of them ($35).
In addition, we ordered a few individual sized items of different dishes. I should have waited to take pictures when we poured them into bowls, but I was too lazy to take any more pictures by that point.
We had some chicken adobo.
Sinigang na bangus – fish in tamarind soup
Bilo bilo- a sweet dessert with sticky rice balls, ube balls and large tapioca.
kare-kare- a stew with a peanut butter based sauce
Everything tasted pretty good. I was a little relieved because on our last few visits to Manila, the food had been very salty.
