When we went to Las Vegas, our friend Mela and Gilbert made sure we try the highly acclaimed oxtail soup at the Market Street Cafe, Hotel California. The place is located at downtown Vegas.
According to them, the place serves mostly Filipino and Hawaiian food, but we only went there for this famous soup. It is served starting 11:00 pm though so we be prepared to have a late night. Hehe

We arrived before 11:00, but the line was already long. We had to wait awhile for a table to be available.
But the wait was well worth it.

Similar to our bulalo,  the famous oxtail has very tender cuts of beef that melts in the mouth. It is also served with rice.
Each individual order (which I think can serve 2 to 3) costs $10.00 each.
Really a must try when one is in Vegas SmileThumbs up

Balai Ilocos in BF Paranaque

7:44:00 PM 0 Comments
We have passed by this place in BF Paranaque numerous time but we never tried it. That day, @jie_golo remembered that I like ilocos empanada so he decided to try this place.

When we entered and checked, they don't have ilocos empanada, but the place did not disappoint us.

Caveat: I have not been to Ilocos so pardon me about this post. What I know is we enjoyed what we ate :D

In a phrase: Takaw kanin!

The interior

The place is not big. It was narrow with about 7 to 8 tables. But the place gave that homey vibe.
To identify those who have tried the place. 

 

Dinakdakan
My first time to try this ilocano dish. According to the description, it is pugon-baked pork in Balai's signature sauce. It was both crunchy and chewy. Parang sisig :P

Papaitan
The only papaitan Ive loved was when my cousin's barkada cooked a big pot during her 18th birthday. This one can compete. It tasted clean and all the meat were very tender. We finished the broth up to the last drop. Dedma sa uric acid! :P


 When they give you the bill. Interesting.
Jie in his pensive pose :P
:D

SEEN!
