Spicy Bicol Express

Spicy Bicol Express

For the first time in my life, I cooked Bicol Express which is very popular and I guess, originated in the region of Bicol. As my father was born in Bicol, in my veins, run a blood that loves spicy foods.

Bicol Express is a meat cooked in coconut milk. Sautee pork meat in onion and garlic, until the meat is slightly brown. Pour in coconut milk and let it simmer. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the green finger chili, cover for 2 minutes. And you are done,

As a first-timer, I am proud of myself in cooking a dish that satisfies my taste. I got the right taste- just perfect, just how i wanted it to be.

Another brand of milk tea. I tried it when we were at Baguio for summer vacation. I bought the one in their bestseller’s list, i don’t remember what was the name. Usually, In all milk tea store I stepped into I always buy the pearl milk tea or the equivalent of it.

And it was alright. Close to what I always bought in Serenitea. The price was 90 pesos for the large cup.

Service was fast since very few are in there to buy. Area was clean.

Rate: 4 out of 5 stars.

It was my first time to try this. I asked the crew what was there best seller, he told me of a cocoa drink- Rock Salt, Cocoa and Cheese. So I ordered one. It was served without a straw, as the crew told me the way to drink it is just by taking a sip. The first sip was not that appealing to me. I don’t like the salty taste. Second sip was still not good for me. So I decided to stir my drink, and finally it was more pleasant to my taste and more enjoyable to drink.

The area was clean. The crew was fast and accommodating. The price was fair. The price of the drink I ordered was only 100 pesos.
