It is a bad situation if I have a craving. I could not wait anymore to go to Mercato on Saturday, so I looked for the nearest branch of Balamban Liempo. Found one in San Rafael St., Kapitolyo, Pasig.
Celine and I braved the afternoon rains just to go to Pasig. If it was bright and sunny, I would have brought my car. But I can not drive when it is raining. We had to take the MRT and rode a cab!!! Such dedication to passion! Hahahahaha!
We ordered a whole slab for the two of us and white rice! Plus the vinegar/soy dipping sauce.
My friend liked it. The branch we went to was a franchise. The liempo in Pasig was good but I prefer the one from Mercato. The flavor taste the same but much juicer and a bit more tender in Mercato. But if you have the craving.... it is good enough!
Still.... I can not wait for Saturday! I know what I am going to prepare for my family. Bulalo Soup, Pancit Canton and Balamban Liempo!!!!
