discoveries after the wedding bells

Smorgasbord

My senior has been raving about this place that serves really good comfort food, so one rainy day, we decided we would go and give it a try

Located in a quiet street in QC, Suka’t Sili serves your favorite Filipino dishes.

What i love about small owned restaurants is that you feel that the servers are usually pretty attentive and extremely knowledgeable of the dishes they serve. Suka’t Sili lived up to this expectation.

Naturally, we ended up with a smorgasbord!

On our table:

Miso Soup

Soup is a given on a stormy day and this big bowl did not disappoint! Delicious broth with tasty fish heads … yes, fish heads … yuummm!

Enselada

the mix of the sweet ripe mango and the salty shrimp paste was excellent! I imagine i could finish a whole order of this dish if i chose to…yes, it’s that good!

Grilled Squid

we all agreed that this dish was perfectly grilled. The squid’s meat was so soft…i think this is one of the best grilled squid i’ve tasted so far. If only it was filled with onions and tomatoes…

Deep Fried Tuna Roe

i love fish eggs so when i saw this on the menu, it of course caught my interest. We were told that it could be cooked in several ways but they recommended that we try it fried. It was good but i thought this would be better if it was cooked maintaining the roe’s soft texture. Next time…

Grilled Pork Belly

I thought that the pork belly was a little thin, but i think it was because of this that made it so flavorful. The meat was really tender and delicious!

Deep Fried Catfish

This dish was so crisp you could eat the fish fins!

They say, it’s appropriate to save the best for last, and that’s just what we did for dinner.

Halo-halo

Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of this dessert. I was actually surprised that the ice was ground so finely that it’s almost like freshly fallen snow!

They mix a few basic ingredients in this halo-halo and you get to choose if you want anything else added to your cup. We all chose to have extra flan on our desserts.

What a perfect ending to a great dinner with good friends!
