Sinigang at Nostalgia
Nostalgia is a hidden restaurant in the corner of a street. It is at the ground floor of a condominium but is near a cyberzone where BPO companies are many so not only tenants got to this place but also employees.
It was lunch time when I went to the restaurant so it waa almost full. There was one vacant table at the corner that has the "reserved" stand so I went directly to the cashier who is facing the entrance directly.
Before I said something, I noticed these beautu products en front of the cashier. I asked if they also sell these ans he said yes.
I motioned towards the vacant table and asked if I can take it. He said yes so I went to it. He followed to removed the "reserved" display then handed me the menu. I scanned through it and ordered sinigang na baboy or pork sinigang.
Sinigang is a Filipino soup or stew characterized by its sour and savoury taste most often associated with tamarind (Filipino: sampalok). It is one of the more popular dishes in Filipino cuisine.
Here now is my sinigang with matching rice for lunch.
And do you see my viand? That is good for two to three persons. With the price of P140.00 or US$2.85, I did not expect the serving size to be this big.
This is how fat I was able to force myself to finish as much as I can. At least, I made it to half, right? That is how a happy eater I am specially with sinigang. I always miss different cooking because of the common fried food in most restaurants.
I guess I enjoyed my food too much that I took time eating. The full other tables earlier are now all empty. I have the place to myself but I have to go anyway.
I asked the crew to fix my leftover for takeaway and here it is. It was a very good lunch with bonus takeaway. Maybe for dinner later..
