No, not the children’s song, just trying to be clever. Hehe
First of all, I want to blame Chino’s fascination with the movie Manila Kingpin: The Asiong Salonga Story haha! Few days after we watched it, here we are in a resto owned by one of it’s casts : Ping Medina. 🙂
We’re in Cubao Expo just in time for lunch. Walked around the place then headed straight to Penpen’s. The place is nice and neat with a vintage vibe to it.
The interior with old, black and white movie posters on the walls. 🙂
Along with some pop songs, they also played some classics tunes just in case you forget the vintage vibe. Then we didn’t waste time for the food! 😀
Penpen’s menu. Also saw several kinds of beers. Some usual and some rare ones. Bet it’s also nice to go there for dinner and some booze. ^_*
I had Chicken and Pork Adobo (P168). This is a good home-cooked style ulam. And it has the essential ingredient of a good Adobo : liver. Yes, you read it right. Hehe Meat is tender as well with the exact blend of vinegar and soy sauce. 2 thumbs up for this one! 🙂
Chino had Bicol Express with Laing. Both of us never tried Laing before and with no idea of how it is made. I didn’t bother trying it, but he said it was okay and compliments with the spicy pork. (P168)
And of course, an undying Iced Tea (P55) to push all these meat. Hehe Supposed to be Bottomless Pandan Iced Tea but they ran out of Pandan so you had to scratch that. All good, anyways. 🙂
I enjoyed lunch since I am a fan of Filipino food. But it would have been much better if we spotted Ping there. ^_^ I guess he frequents on their other branch. Another cute thing though is the bill. Well, not actually the bill, but where it is at. Guess where?
Here! In this little treasure chest. 🙂 You open it and then the bill is right there. It was so cute, we took a while to pay for looking too long and taking pictures hehe
As a result, we are happy and full kids after the meal. Walked around X again before going home.
Til next lunch! 😀
