|Hot soup, anyone?|
The place was packed with people but luckily we were able to get a table after waiting for a few minutes. We ordered a few items from the menu and the first to arrive was the Nido Soup. The soup which is priced at 120 Pesos is already good for 8 people. What a steal! It was thick and really tasty. It also has lots of quail eggs which is a nice bonus.

The Miki Bihon on the other hand, was loaded with pork, liver, fish balls (squid balls?), celery, carrot strips, green beans etc. It was good and quite heavy. I liked the assortment of vegetables and you can tell that they were really fresh because they were able to retain their crunchiness despite being sauteed and cooked with the noodles.

After that was this dish, which for the life of me, I really couldn't recall the name. It's fried pork sauteed with bell peppers and onions. I am guessing this is their version of Lechon Kawali. It was alright as far as I can remember. The bell peppers were really good though.

The Buttered Chicken came next. The skin was crispy and tasty. The meat was juicy and delicious. This dish really goes well with the Fried Rice. I think this is one of their best sellers since most of the tables around us has this dish as well especially the ones with kids.

Last to arrive was the Fried Bituka. It is pig stomach fried and then sauteed with onions and bell peppers which seems to be the standard presentation in this place. The taste was good but some of the meat was a bit rubbery. This is a perfect partner for beer which they also serve here.
