You can find Sisig Hooray in many shopping malls,in almost each one. I found this food chain store in SM Mega Mall just a few metres from Ortigas station(MRT Blue Line 3). They earn their fame with a good cause, local favourite. One local recommended to me that the sisig pork will be the best choice, cause it is crunchy deep fried.the first thing what came to mind while eating this food, salty, in a delicious way and I neutralized it with the serving rice.The precooked squid was redone by grilling it to a few minute before chopping them into small pieces. The sauce is thick and a lot of minced onion and garlic on it, loved it. I bet there is ginger in it also. I squeezed the lemon juice on the squids, but I saw someone did it on rice. The food is simple and fast to be prepared. I ordered and got it almost as fast as freshly made burger under five minutes.
There is this steak station in SM megamall also. There have plenty of choices. They have T-bone steak, pork steak, burger steak, they even have tenderloin and the list just goes on. I ordered this honey glaze steak. It was sizzling hot while served.
The garnish is Java rice, recognized by it signature yellow colour. This yellow rice is widely served anywhere with grilled steak and skewers. Unlike malaysian yellow rice, it is not coloured only by turmeric but also annatto powder. Some cook even put pepper to the rice. The honey sauce, it become thicker when it cool down. I think it has been mixed with other sauce too, because it tastes sweet and has a bit of sour kicking in the end. The pork was what I had expected. I love the steak in that way, it is sliced with the fat left on. It can be quite filling.
- 1. Power sockets used are of type A / B / C.
- 2. Manila traffic can be jammed several hours from 17:00p.m to 20:00p.m. Recommendable living in hotel close to MRT/LRT station.
- 3. Manila LRT can be really crowed during the traffic jam time. Sometime the aircondition can be malfunction, recommend light packed to move around. Manila is estimated with an overall population 12 million in 2014.
- 4. LRT ticket tokens can be bought only from the counter, no need to worry about small coins. In writing time, I heard from local they are renewing the system, maybe coins slot machine in future.
