Cripsy Kare Kare - a lot of reviewers from another website were recommending this dish, so I had to try it. The dish looked so huge when it first came out, but most of this deceiving look was due to a few big bones on the plate hidden under the crispy pork. It came with a big ole dish of peanut sauce with some vegetables(some green beans, bok choy looking vegetables, and eggplant) in it. I did not really like the peanut sauce/soup because it tasted like they use peanut butter from the jar (it didn't necessarily taste bad), but very weird. The dish also comes with bagong sauce and vinegar sauce. The pork by itself doesn't really have that much flavor to it. I think that's why they give you a big bowl of peanut sauce to eat it with. It was around $15.95....wasn't worth the money and will not be ordering it again.
Adobo Pork - flavorful but salty. A lot of fat chunks in it. There's an inch of oil layer on top of the dish (maybe I am exaggerating a bit), but the sauce is good to put over plain rice. If you are trying to watch your weight, DO NOT order this. It's about ~$9
If you order something that has sauce at this place, you kind of have to order either plain rice or garlic rice otherwise you won't be able to eat your dish. Garlic rice is good. We ordered large size and we had some to take home.
Service - The waiter was nice but had a hard time communicating. He would answer some questions or he would answer whatever he wanted because he didn't know what we were saying.
