North Park Merienda


I wanted something easy to chew because I just had my adult braces adjusted. My officemates were good enough to suggest congee at North Park for our afternoon snack.
(Gusto ko ng pagkaing madaling nguyain dahil kaka-adjust lang ng braces sa ngipin ko. Mabuti na lang at naisip ng officemates ko na magmerienda kami sa North Park.)

I had the simplest congee I could find from the menu. I was full after a bowl. Serving is quite big.
(Nag-order ako ng pinaksimpleng congee na nasa menu. Nabusog ako pagkatapos ng isang mangkok. Medyo malaki ang serving.)


A variety of the congee my officemate ordered, with shredded pork, vegetables, century egg.
(Isang variety ng congee naman ang inorder ng kasama ko, may himay-himay na pork, gulay at century egg.)


But then the two boys won't settle for anything else but food that will last till six o'clock strikes even if there are two coffee breaks in the afternoon. I have to say the boneless fried chicken chops is one of NP's specialties. You wouldn't notice you've been munching on it until only a few pieces are left on the plate. I always wonder how it is crispy on the outside but so soft and chewy in the inside.
(Pero syempre ang mga lalaki gusto nila yung aabot ang kabusugan nila hanggang mag-uwian kahit may isa pa ulit na coffee break. Masasabi kong best seller naman talaga ng NP ang boneless fried chicken chops. Ang sarap papakin. Paano kaya nagagawa yung crispy sa labas pero napakalambot ang meat.)


Lechon macau is also a specialty. I usually order this over fried rice. The crispy skin is so inviting but I know better than to break my brackets and hurt myself. Next time. :)
(Lechon macau ay isang specialty din. Madalas kong orderin ito na may kasamang fried rice. Nakakagigil ang malutong na balat pero baka mabali ang brackets ko. Sa susunod na lang.)
