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!
