... and just like that, support and help came pouring in.
Let me share with you a number of the dishes that we had that evening. These are just half of what was served and are also the ones that I really liked:
Pork Adobo (front) and Veal Caldereta (back)Of course, what's an Adobo night without...Adobo! We had not one...not even two but 4 kinds of Adobo that evening! Chicken Adobo, Balunbalunan Adobo, Adobong Pusit (Squid Adobo) and Pork Adobo! We were indeed in Adobo heaven and obviously, everyone was loving it!
Pancit PalabokThis just got to be one of my favorite Filipino noodle dishes (the other being Pancit Malabon). The moment I saw Palabok after 9 long months, I felt my heart doing cartwheels. This was pure happiness.
Cheese PutoWish they served it with Dinuguan.
Pork SisigThe winning dish of the night! When Chef Karla introduced the Pinoy Chef who prepared the sisig, everyone clapped for him. It was so good that they had to replenish the sisig almost every 15 minutes. It was crunchy, savory and truly authentic that we all couldn't help but go back for more.
Leche FlanWe were so amazed that this was created by a Mexican chef. Not bad at all!
Calamansi Juice and Sago't GulamanI tried the Calamansi Juice and found it to be too sweet. I think the Sago't Gulaman would have been a better choice.
This event is a true testament showing that no matter how far away we may be from home, we will always and forever be there to help our fellow countrymen in any way we can. Truly, the Filipino Spirit is indeed Waterproof.
