Empacho

Empacho



Di ka lalabas ng restaurant na hindi ka ma-Empacho. 

Because of the restaurant's name I was really excited and curious on what they offer. When I arrived and saw their menu I was ecstatic. They serve Filipino fried favorites. Woot woot! Honestly It is pretty hard for me to find a Filipino resto that serves delicious for that would definitely go back for. Normally some establishments offers expensive an dishes with small servings or affordable ones that I just didn't like the taste.

Empacho's menu can be some what expensive for some people but it's all worth it. They make sure all of their dishes were beautifully plated and staying true to the Filipino palate.

APPETIZERS
Spicy Tamarind Wings (Php 370) Start off your meal with their wings. Tamarind honey glazed wings cooked till golden brown. Order a bottle of beer too while you are at it! Bonus it's not as spicy which was a plus for me since I don't like spicy food that much. 

Crispy Tokwa't Baboy (Php 350) When you think about tokwa't baboy you wouldn't imagine it swimming in sauce. But this one the sauce was just perfect with their dish. It's malamis lamis.

Sisig Bruschetta (Php 250) Toasted baguette with their signature Empacho's crispy sisig. Make sure to order rice with that.

MAINS
Crispy Pork Kare-Kare (Php 395) Please don't kill me but I'm not really a fan of kare-kare. But when I tried this one I truly enjoyed it the sauce was thick and even though it didn't have much binagoong. I liked the sauce most especially mixed in rice.

Empacho's Lechon Belly (Php 790) Napakagandang nilalang. This super crispy lechon belly was so juicy and the skin cracks in my mouth. Even without the sauce it's good. Can serve 3-4 people.

Seafood Tinola (Php 380) Surprised with this dish. Usually it's with chicken and this is the first time I've encountered seafood as the main ingredient. Although it lacked ginger for me but still a good dish to try.

Sinigang na Lechon with Strawberry (Php 490) Another delicious and enticing dish. They've incorporated strawberries in sinigang. STRAWBERRIES! Love it the soup was "asim kilig".

Soft Shell Crab Aligue Pasta (Php 420) My least favorite dish cause I found it too sour for my taste. But I'm sure others will enjoy this. It's their aligue pasta with this crispy soft shell crab. The presentation was beautiful.

RICE
If you find plain rice boring, they have four other rice mix to choose from.

Guinamos Kalkag Rice (Php 75) Rice combined with dried alamang and shrimp paste with sampaloc flavor.                           
Aligue Rice (Php 65) Aligue rice mixed with garlic and fried chili.
Tinapa Rice (Php65) Rice mixed in tinapa flakes then topped with tomato and salted egg.

IOr you want it simple Garlic Rice (Php 65) and Pandan Rice (Php 55)

DESSERTS
Kamias Cheesecake (Php 180) Filipino version of cheesecake. The taste of kamias infused in cheesecake. Yummers!

Salted Egg Lava Cake (Php 150) MY FAVORITE dessert and their best seller. Yema! Eat it hot cause it's oozing with caramel goodness.
