I could still remember how my first few lunches here at the Lion City went. I ventured out and around my office neighbourhood to try the local dishes being sold. During one particular lunch, I decided to queue up in this really popular hawker stall selling Curry Rice. I love curry made at home and I thought to myself: "this could probably be something like what Mommy makes." Oh boy, I was wrong! One spoonful was enough to set my mouth on fire! It was so spicy that I immediately consumed my bottled water and that wasn't enough to kill the sting. I ended up buying an ice cream cone after my meal. Needless to say, that spicy experience scarred me for life.
These are not the usual chili garlic oils though as it got seafood as its main base plus it's mixed with a variety of herbs and one even has sausage and mushroom in it. I tried the Seafood Chili Garlic with Sausage & Mushroom (Php. 200) one evening as I was rushing to prepare a quick but yummy dinner for myself and Paul. Of course, I resorted to cooking pasta and since I didn't had the time to prepare any meat or creamy sauce, I opened a bottle and sauteed this with chopped garlic before tossing in the cooked pasta noodles.
In addition to their line of sauces, they also have some powdered drinks available. Of course, keeping with their name, they got Spicy Hot Choco Mix (Php. 220) and Minty Hot Choco Mix (Php. 220) too. Quite interesting, don't you think?
For those who loves to add that spicy zing into their dishes, this is definitely for you!
