Weekend treat

Every Saturday, together with my classmates, I eat at one of the “hidden treasures” outside the Polytechnic University of the Philippines’ Graduate School campus in Sta. Mesa, Manila. It is a place named “Looban Eatery” or literally, an eatery in the interior area of the district.

For 40PhP (roughly 1US$), you can feast on a meal consisting of a meat and a vegetable viand and a cup of rice. But last Sunday was different, they ran out of vegetable viands so I opted for Lechon Paksiw (roasted pig cooked in vinegar, garlic and salt.) to go with my Sisig. This time, instead of the usual 40PhP, it was 59PhP as I also added an extra order of rice.

The Lechon Paksiw had a large chunk of pig fat and I can’t seem to notice the taste of the vinegar. The Sisig was good, it even had bits of crunchy pig skin. Overall, I give it 9 stars out of 10. It was good and it sure filled the hole in my tummy.
