Gising-gising (PHP 240.00)

Sliced kangkong stalks sautéed in red hot chili peppers and coconut milk. If you've been to Bistro Remedios in Malate, this is the same gising-gising they offer. It has the right richness of the coconut milk or gata. Quite hot and spicy but tolerable.

Crispy Pork Adobo ni Lola Ising (PHP 395.00)

Stewed pork belly (liempo) in soy and vinegar, fried crisp and topped with popped garlic. A sauceless adobo but definitely not dry. It is so tender and has the right balance of the soy sauce and the vinegar. The extra garlic flavor adds up to the richness of the dish.

Klasik Kare Kare (PHP 595.00)

My all-time favorite! Abe's Kare-kare has Oxtail and tripe stewed in peanut sauce with assorted vegetables. It has rich, thick peanut sauce with just the right amount of sweetness and creaminess. The veggies are fresh, crunchy and not overcooked. The bagoong on the side perfectly compliments it. It didn't disappoint me. It's what a good-tasting kare-kare should be.

Betute (PHP 290.00)

A Kapampangan specialty, Betute are deep fried farm frogs stuffed with minced pork, garlic, and spices. I love it! It tastes like chicken, smells clean and the stuffing is quite flavorful. This one is definitely a must-try when dining in Pampanga.
