And because may mga pagkakataon na ayaw namin mag-tacos at nachos, we decided to try Hukad at Ayala Mall Cloverleaf. From what I can tell Hukad is a restaurant that originated from Cebu and they serve Filipino dishes.
Here’s what we had for dinner….
We had Green Mango Salad (₱155), a side dish or sawsawan made up of chopped green mango, onions, and tomatoes topped with ssalted egg. We also had Calamares (₱265). I love their calamares because it was cooked perfectly! Crispy batter and tender squid meat.
We ordered their Lechon Belly but I forgot how much the price is. The skin was crispy and the meat was juicy and flavorful. It was serevd with a soy-vinegar dipping sauce.
It was my first time to see Adobong Talong (₱145) on a restarant menu. Actually first time ko talaga makatikim at makakita ng adobon talong. (Inaadobo pala ang talong? Sabagay, hindi naman sya magrereklamo kung ano gawin mo sa kanya eh no). It was surprisingly good!
To warm our tummies we had Bulalo Soup (₱95), no meat at all — just plain soup and the few veggies that comes with Bulalo like corn and pechay baguio.
We also had Ngo Hiong (₱170), a spring roll that’s popular in Cebu. It was my first time to try it as well but I didn’t like it that much.
That’s it. I remember we were satisfied with dinner and I left with a mental note to cook Adobong Talong at home. Hanggang ngayon hndi ko pa rin nagagawa.. LOL!
