SOS Palabok and Crema de Leche Halo-Halo

New offerings from Mang Inasal.

First on the table is the Palabok (Php 75) that the restaurant claims is SOS: Sauce at sangkap, Ohh Sarap, that the dish is complete with the necessary ingredients of a palabok and that the sauce is delicious.

Well, the first claim is true. The Palabok indeed comes complete with ingredients. As for the sauce...It's not bad. It's just that the shrimp flavor is a little too pronounced. To temper this strong shrimp taste, we put some chicken oil (it actually makes the dish better.). The sauce has good consistency though, nice and thick.

The second treat, the Crema de Leche Halo-Halo (Php 62, small)crushed ice with macapuno, leche flan, caramelized bananas, and condensed milk. It doesn't taste bad, but it's not great. Also, the banana pieces though are not cooked well (raw in the middle). There's too much macapuno too. As for the leche flan, it has a weird gelatinous texture.

Try these treats and judge for yourself.
