Yes, like the little girl who ate the porridge of those three bears then slept in their beds until they ran her out. It's a small fast food joint in the Eagle Rock mall plaza. The city of Eagle Rock has a large Filipino community, so it would be fitting to have a good amount of markets and eateries devoted to the foods of the Philippines.
They're really popular in the Philippines. Mostly known for their variety of baked goods like pandesal, ensaymada, mamon, cakes, pastries. They also have a small restaurant side to their business as well. That's were I had my lunch. We (my mom and I) each ordered one item and shared another.
Paksiw na Lechon
This is very similar to the Filipino Style adobo, except that the sauce in addition to the adobo recipe has sugar and some of the liver sauce. The pork pieces are essentially made in the style of lechon sa kawali. It's really good especially with rice.
Traditionally, this would be made from meaty pieces of the pork head. Of course, catering to the American palette, they cook it up with a meat of the pig.
This is the veggie version of the deep fried pork eggrolls (lumpia), Minus the wrapper. It's stir-fried veggies of bell peppers, carrots, tofu, mushroom, onion. I'm sure I'm forgetting something. With a side of minced garlic and covered in sauce made from water, soy sauce and sugar that's been boiled and simmered until thick. The type of wrapper you'd use for this would be those thin rice wrappers. It's then topped with crushed peanuts.It's one of those fork and/or knife dishes.
As you can tell, I've been on a Filipino food craze lately. I still have a bunch of recipes I want to cook up. As soon as the craziness subsides. I promised myself I'd cook something Indian. A curry of some kind. I'm open to suggestions. Hmmm....the wheels in my head are turning, turning, turning.
