Gerarda’s Family Restaurant is one of Bohol’s well known restaurant that serve really good Filipino cuisine. When we went there, it was almost jam-packed with people. I can imagine it is a great place to bring your family for a dinner or with your fellow officemates for some satisfying lunch on a weekends. This is where we decided to take our small dinner (I’m trying to lose weight lol) for the night and we ordered one of their popular best sellers which is the Dinakdakan, a grilled and chopped pork belly with spices and coconut milk. We paired it with the always appetizing chicken chicharon (deep fried chicken skin cracklings) for a simply perfect Pinoy combo dish.

From top left to bottom right: Baby Back Ribs, Grilled Blue Marlin and Pasta de Calamari at INJ Iligan.

INJ is actually a restaurant with a car wash or a car wash with a restaurant (scratches head) in Palao near The Strip. I think you can see it where there’s a utility tricycle in the photo.

The place is really nice and the food was okay, but I like the grilled blue marlin. I think you could never go wrong with a blue marlin no matter how it is cooked. The calamares was specially good too, but the pasta sauce tasted like ordinary plain ketchup. They could use a better tomato sauce or cook real tomatoes in olive oil for the pasta.

I heard they have one of the best burgers in town… a day after we came here. Toink!

We still enjoyed our “luncher” or “drunch” (I’m just coining the term between lunch and dinner) or our mid afternoon super heavy snack.

Nuak’s Pinoy Food Delicacies.

There are mainly three things that I really love to write. Mix martial artsfood and everything else in between, but most of my blogs are about FOOD!  Let’s face it; food is the answer to world peace. If you see children fighting over a piece of chicken inasal, that’s where all the world conflict starts from: at the table!

I’m not really a 100% food blogger per se, but I realized blogging about food has its perks. You get to have loads of excuses to eat any of your favorite Pinoy dishes anytime without having to worry about Body Mass Index or BMI for short. Pinoy food has always been a passion for me, since I learned how to shove food in my mouth. It will always be a lifelong passion, even if I lost all my teeth because of it.

Today, me and my girlfriend went to this popular mini restaurant NUAK in Iligan City that serve’s mostly Filipino dishes.

Here’s what we had for lunch:

Food with geometrical appeal or whatever that means. Hehe

1. Filipino Pork Sisig!

My all time Nuak favorite: Pork Sisig!

For starters, Pork Sisig is made from hog cheeks, nose and ears that are cooked in three phases: boiled, broiled and then fried and sauteed with garlic and onions. It is usually served on a sizzling plate with chillies’ and a fresh egg on top of the Sisig.

You might protest that something is missing in the picture. True, it is not served on a sizzling plate, but because Nuak’s frequent costumers are students, Nuak has to downsize its Sisig to make it affordable for students on a budget and on the go.

Nonetheless, minus the sizzle and smoke, Nuak’s Sisig gastronomically tasted good.

2. Papait!

Papait or Papaitang Kambing!

For the uninitiated, it has a hint of bitterness hence the name Papait which comes from the word “Pait” or bitter. Papait is a bittersweet Pinoy delicacy and one of my favorites.

3. Ampalaya with Egg

Ampalaya with Egg!

The purpose of the egg is actually to help lessen the bitter taste of Ampalaya. Ampalaya is actually very healthy that is why despite its bitter taste, we Pinoys found a way to make it delectable.

4. Sinugbang Baboy

Sinugbang Baboy or Grilled Pork!

Believed to be a panacea for drunkenness, loneliness and heartbreaks or at least in my imagination, Sinugbang Baboy can truly bring that sweet smile again to most Pinoys. I’m no drunkard, lonely or heartbroken, but I love Sinugbang Baboy!

Here’s me about to gorge in.

Am I so enthusiastic or what? Haha

It is so obvious that we Filipinos’ have a penchant for eating regardless of dish size. Whether it’s a full-size adult Lechon Baboy sprawling at the table or a measly sized saucer of Papaitan Kambing staring at me, Pinoy food is the best among the best, and that I believe makes me THE ULTIMATE SOOO PINOY BLOGGER! ^_^

The Awesome Grilled Pork Belly of Papa Mai’s Grill

Grilled pork belly or “liempo” in the vernacular (the word liempo is actually Chinese in origin) is one dish that everybody here in Iligan City would want to covet … by hook or by crook. Seriously its a favorite Filipino dish that goes perfect with rice, Ceviche or Kinilaw (in our own native tongue), or other Filipino dishes, a bottle of 1.5 liter coke or some really smoking cold beer.

Now enter Papa Mai’s Liempo! One of the best if not the best grilled pork belly in town located within Pasillo beside Palao’s Shoppe 24 or the Strip at Palao (map here) Iligan City. My girlfriend Leia already blogged about Papa Mai’s so here’s my “behind the scenes” photos of her Papa Mai’s Grill blog post.

The "it used to be hard to reach location" Papa Mai's Grill is now easily accessible. Hallelujah!!!

So here's the grilled pork belly in sizzling action. ^_^

The ever immortalized presence of soy sauce, vinegar, minced or chopped onions, calamansi (not seen), siling labuyo (small, slender chili peppers) and rice. These stuff are perfect for all Filipino dishes. *drool*

Here's the chopped grilled pork belly ready for feasting. That's just one plate of many plates. One for each.

Yep! ready to attack! Yeah!!!

Here's the rest of the gang that day. Leia's IT friends and batchmates.
