While I was enjoying pampering at The Nail Lounge yesterday (btw, they have a new location along Bacarra Rd./Gen Segundo Ave. cor. Provincial Hospital Rd.), noticed a recurring scene through the glass wall. Thought it was a dim sum stall, but it turns out Choy Lin is a fried food station for the audacious eater. Caught familiar faces picking up something from the store. Had to research furthermore and I got positive feedback. So for dinner, I went personally to buy crispy ulo, crispy pata and fried itik (duck). Lynne, our cook uttered while eating, “Scary.” (Hahah!) she meant all the cholesterol. We all had lemon-infused water, green tea, coffee, and yakon afterwards.
Everything was seasoned and fried beautifully. There’s just one thing I noticed, whether duck or pork, the taste was the same. The dipping sauce was on the sweet side, so we had to enhance it with chili pepper and more soy sauce. I guess if you have to buy something from Choy Lin, start with just one. I recommend crispy ulo (pork head). They also have lechon kawali, sisig, and fried chicken.
Originating in Vigan, Choy Lin has a branch in Abra too. Prices are affordable.
Best with KBL (kamatis, bugguong and lasona).
