I just dug out food photos from my not so old files. Actually, it’s been months since Ericke’s college graduation and she now has two different jobs. In one photo, you’ll see my blog reader-turned-friend Tita Lita (well, she’s gone back to the US of A) and co-blogger-turned-friend Herdy (I really haven’t seen him after Tita Lita left Pinas). This dinner at Fort Ilocandia’s Red 8 was spur of the moment. Tita Lita and I came from REFMAD Farms and we were dressed like in wala lang. As you will see, it’s not a grand grad party. We prefer to celebrate family occasions quietly.
In an old entry, I featured Red 8’s dimsum. For this particular dinner, we ordered the family favorites. Martine and Brandon eat like the dad and mom while Ericke and Euge are the picky ones that is why we always have to order more food. And, of course, roast duck, hakaw (shrimp dumplings) and chicken feet are never absent.Tita Lita didn’t want to try the pickled jellyfish, and yet, she succumbed to my insistence that she try the made-in-China-adidas. I don’t think she liked it, though. What she loved was the hot prawn salad. I had to order another serving, but just like the first one, it was gone fast because it’s also the children’s favorite except for Alexa, who eats only Ilocano food, noodles and chocolate cake. No offense meant to Tita Lita, but it’s such a joy to dine with Herdy. He tried everything on the table. I guess he would make a good food blogger and an engaging one at that. I laughed at his story of how the noodle soup at this fast food chain branch tasted like cough syrup.
Well, that’s my food post for this week, folks. I hope Quiel permits me to shoot my current favorite barbecue place this weekend.
