Salo-Salo

For a lunch outing with my dad and aunts, we went to Salo-Salo Grill & Restaurant in West Covina. 

I decided to get the Spicy Coconut Chicken combination plate which comes with the soup of day - Beef Mami noodle soup:

Beef Mami - Filipino comfort food
Here's the main dish with egg rolls (you may choose among vegetable, pork, or shrimp egg rolls) and garlic fried rice (or you can get steamed rice).  The suka (vinegar) that came as a dip for the egg rolls was sourly superb:

Spicy Coconut Chicken - it was mildly spicy, the coconut sauce was subtle, and it paired well with the garlic fried rice.
Boneless Bangus - A grilled deboned, lightly marinated milkfish.
Pinakbet - Mixed vegetables (squash, okra, long beans, eggplant) with bagoong alamang (shrimp paste), shrimp, and pork.

For dessert we shared a halo-halo.  Before you eat this dessert, you have to mix the shaved ice, ube (purple yam) ice cream, evaporated milk, fruits, and boiled sweet beans.  These various ingredients include kidney beans, kaong (sugar palm fruit), langkâ (jackfruit), macupuno (coconut) strings, nata de coco, leche flan, etc.:


Halo-Halo - I'd choose this over a smoothie any day, sarap!

Fat Boy

On my cheat day I ate at Fat Boy located on 4425 Stewart St Suite 107 (corner of Stewart St & Lamb Blvd).  It's a small fast food joint that serves hamburgers, pizzas, burritos, salads, smoothies (their syrups are homemade), milkshakes, and Mexican food:

Chencho Fries- a Fat Boy favorite!  These fries are topped with salsa verde, grilled onions, chopped chicken, and melted cheese:

Pastrami Boyger- beef patty topped with pastrami, mustard, grilled onions, pickles and mayo.  If you need a serious protein fix, this "boyger" is for you:

Fat Boy makes their meat patties daily and are never frozen.  Toppings and vegetables are prepared as needed, and buns are delivered to the restaurant fresh daily.  If you're feeling gluttonous, check out Fat Boy!

Flock & Fowl

If you're in the mood to eat a chicken dish, I highly recommend checking out Flock & Fowl.  This restaurant specializes in making Hainanese Chicken Rice.  It's a simple dish consisting of poached organic, free range chicken with marinated cucumbers and preserved mustard greens as seen in the photo below.  You may dip the chicken in ginger scallion sauce, house made sambal (chile), and house made soy sauce for more flavor/kick (not pictured).  Also, the sides to choose from are organic egg, Chinese sausage (lap cheung), chicken broth, or more chicken rice:

On the day we dined there, the Chicken & Poached Egg Congee was the special dish of the day.  Congeeis a rice porridge that's common throughout Asian countries.  It can be eaten plain, but usually comes with garnishes and sides:



We couldn't resist trying their steamed buns:

After I ate, I felt like I finished a home cooked meal, which is a rare feeling for me when eating at any restaurant.  Keep in mind this …
