Wooden Spoon at the Power Plant Mall

Wooden Spoon

I can be seriously udong when it comes to the latest Manila eats. So when Wooden Spoon chef and co-owner Sandy Daza invited the FoodPrints team to try out his latest at the Power Plant Mall, I was secretly giving Pen a hand signal. We were there early, so we got seated right away. Went over the menu and surprisingly the price points are not eye-popping.

The crab pancit arrives first. Chef Sandy says it’s one of the dishes her mom, the late Nora Daza, used to cook at home. Then the unusual red and century egg salad waits in front of us. With the first bite, I suddenly forget about everything else. Chef Sandy divulges there’s a sweet and salty Chinese candy powder in it.

Following 5 days of binging in Batangas, the unexpected food fiesta on our way home was killing me. I got so bitin with the spoonful of pinangat at the Lipa Night Market, so Wooden Spoon’s stuffed pechay gave me the satisfaction. The Ilocano in me ignored the dinakdakan and dinardaran with lechon kawali. I seized the adobo flakes and tinapa rice. The sago cake and reina blanca were rather light. Not because Sandy Daza is a friend, but truly, it was comfort eating at its best! Come back at me if  I’m wrong.
