I don't have much experience with Filipino food. Sure I've been to a few restaurants here and there. But I certainly cannot call myself well versed in it. So when a friend wants to do dinner at a Filipino restaurant, I'm always game. The food intrigues me and I always want to know more. For this food adventure, it was TT's birthday. The FBM crew sat at a large table, ordered too much, them watched as our table was piled with every inch of space with food.
Another similar appetizer that we tried that night was the Fried Tripe ($9) with spicy banana ketchup. The tripe was much better prepared making it super crispy and light. It was easy to eat a lot of these much like funyuns. As for the tripe, I believe this was honeycomb stomach.
Happy Birthday, TT!
