Mang Inasal Palabok, My Latest Merienda Discovery!

Merienda is defined as a light meal taken in the afternoon or brunch but it is one which I do not take lightly. Merienda is actually my source of both energy and inspiration in the afternoon so eating a bad merienda (or no merienda) is a no-no.

My Favorite Merienda Food

I have five favorite merienda food. Now that I’m pregnant my cravings are so intense that I have to have all of this at least once a week.

5. Burgers – I don’t really go for big burgers. Right now, it’s the opposite, the simpler the burger, the more I like it.

4. Smoothie – I’m crazy about Strawberry Smoothie! This was fueled by our recent trip to Baguio. I was able to bring home lots of strawberries and led me to create Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie.

3. Raisin Bread/ Ensaymada – Yes, it’s either raisin bread with lot of raisins or Ensaymada with lots of grated cheese on top.

2. Taho – No problem getting this as our suking magtataho passes by our house at exactly 3pm every day.

1. Palabok – I grew up eating palabok  for merienda. We have a neighbor that sells delicious homecooked Palabok and that’s where we always buy the Palabok we eat for merienda. She eventually discontinued selling it and since then I’ve been in constant search of delicious Palabok.

And I’ve found it! Meet my latest discovery — Mang Inasal Palabok!

True to its promise, Mang Inasal Palabok has this rich, flavorful sauce, and an array of complete palabok ingredients and toppings like shrimp, big chunks of pork, chicharon, spring onions, and hard-boiled egg!

I used to go to Mang Inasal for merienda because I like their Halo-Halo, now I have another reason to frequent it!

If you haven’t tried Mang Inasal Palabok, then now is the best time for you to do so. I’m absolutely sure you’ll love it too!
