When we were still living in BF Homes Paranaque, we’d always have lunch at Little Quiapo after hearing mass in the Phase 1 church. Kapag rin may birthday or holiday, dito kami kakain. or sa Conti’s. :p So Little Quiapo became one of my fave restos not just because of their good food, but because of the many memories I owe to the place. :)
Miko also has childhood memories of Little Quiapo’s Old fashioned Buttermilk Pancakes. Their old house was near the 1st Quezon City branch. We (with Donnie and Jan) visited the BF branch for some of LQ’s classics. Their best dish is the Pancit Palabok. The 93php-plate is super sulit with its flavorful sauce and generous toppings. Kita mo naman nagsu-swimming talaga ang noodles sa sauce. Ang sarap. Na-miss namin ito. :D
Shempre kung may palabok, dapat may classic partner rin… halo-halo! Miko and I shared the Fiesta Halo-halo (140php). I actually am not a big fan of their halo-halo, I just wanted one that time because it was a hot summer night and it’s weird eating LQ’s palabok without a glass of halo-halo to go with it.
And, no, babe. That’s leche flan on top, not tokwa. Pero mukha talagang tokwa. :p
Partners ba kamo? Hehehe. Sorry naman, akala naming Champola pa rin ‘yung tawag diyan sa wafer stick na ‘yan. Napapaghalata talaga ang edad namin!
The non-classics that we ordered were Diced Chicken with Cashew Nuts (252php) that reminded us of a watery chicken pastel minus some ingredients. Parang ang panget ng description ko, but trust me, masarap ito!
I liked that their Pork Sisig (188php) was very crunchy, but there’s nothing that special about its taste. kapampangan-style sisig pa rin!
Anyway, I still appreciated the sisig-garlic rice combo. Tignan mo naman ang garlic rice nila. GARLIC rice talaga. Galit na galit lang sa bawang, just the way we like it. Tsaka parang may butter. :D
Jan also had halo-halo, pero pa-star si Donnie so nag-Mais Con Hielo (107php) siya. Na-inggit tuloy ako sa kanya!
The place still looks the same. I swear kahit pintura at chairs pareho pa rin! It’s nice to go back to somewhere familiar. Na-miss ko tuloy sila Mama and Daddy. Im happy I got to eat there again with the boyfie and my buddies though. :)
After less than a month, I found myself back. Sa QC branch naman. Miko craved for palabok when we were at SCTEX only our way back to Manila from Bataan.
Is it just me or the serving in the BF branch is larger? Oh well, same taste.
Opted milkshakes (120php) over halo-halo that day. I had strawberry and Miko had mango. Cold, rich, creamy goodness!
Also had some toast (20php) and Spanish Omelette (176php). I wondered where the olives were, but settled for the bacon. At ang daming bacon!
As usual, busog na naman! And I cannot end this entry without saying that Little Quiapo is the only LQ that I like! Haha.
