This is the 3rd Valentines Day that I have a “valentine”, and all with the same person. 🙂 And this is how we spent it..
We are not actually big with this occasion: no flowers, gifts, candies whatsoever. It’s not even a must to greet each other. I think for previous Feb 14s, I had work, but this time we had the luxury to dine out. We had our usual trip to Cubao to pick up GV shirts. And since we are in tipid mode hehe we used the Sodexho passess that I had last year.
This is our choice of dinner for last night. There were few people when we came in but come around 7PM, it was jam-packed! I was kinda reminded that there is an occasion hehe Since it is heart’s day, we had something not-so-good for the heart haha
THIS is the Knockout Knuckle!
“A.K.A. Crispy Pata Bawang, a whole leg of pork deep-fried in garlic and chilies, cited by well known food writer Madhur Jaffrey as the best pork knuckle dish he has tried in the Philippines.” -according to their menu.
And the dish lived up to its name. Haha We were literally knocked out by this one. Imagine, a whole Crispy Pata for 2! So the result? We were dizzy after the meal. I think all the cholesterol and fat got to us and the blood pressure went high haha. But in our defense, we were able to finish it. We are “knockout” while what’s left are all “knuckle”. It’s a suicide attempt for P595 >.<
But that doesn’t end there. We also had the Chicken Wings Orientale. These are spicy chicken wings marinated in secret sauce. Well, not so secret, since it tasted like honey barbecue sauce to me hehe. (P165)
These and 4 cups of rice and a round of iced tea. Solb! Too bad I didn’t bring an SLR, and the digicam that I had drained on us. Well, no need to take photos after the meal, we are dizzy by that time haha so here are photos before the meal:
Can you see the man in red polo shirt in the photo? He ate the Knockout Knuckle all to himself. As in pinapak nya! Lakas! >.<
We didn’t bother going around after it, we went straight home. Then we capped off the night with a cup of tea and frappe at Subi Monte in Cavite City. 🙂 Up until now, 15 hours after dinner, I still feel full. Busog! Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Keep your hearts safe. 🙂
