La Carnita: First Ever Grilled Nachos? Yes, Please!

La Carnita: First Ever Grilled Nachos? Yes, Please!

Who doesn’t like nachos? We don’t think anyone can say they don’t like nachos. This simple dish with crispy corn chips topped with melted cheese, tomatoes, beef, and chilies, has been a staple drinking food all over the world. Today, we visit one of the more popular versions in Manila.

La Carnita is home to the Nacho ala Bomba that was made famous in Business Insider, their original branch is in the Hive Food park.

Finally, they have opened their flagship store situated on the second Floor of the Regus Building in Katipunan Ave.

The look of La Carnita is plastered walls tiles and brick with the theme of aqua red and black with a Mexican hat and mustache. The whole theme is a play on an industrial Mexican style chic.

We were able to try a number of their dishes. The most prominent thing that we noticed is that cheese makes things happy.

Carnitas Quesadilla (160 PHP). Their Quesadilla’s come in two variants either beef or chicken. We suggest having the beef. The whole quesadilla is filled with flavorful beef filling and perfect with their different sauces.

New on their Menu is the La Comida, their version of rice meals and your choice of meat either Ribs, Chicken, or Pork Belly.

La Comida with Ribs(275 PHP). The ribs were tender and flavorful but were inconsistent with the flavor. The whipped potato was really good with the cheese.

La Comida with Chicken(185 PHP). The chicken was flavorful but wish it had a crispier skin. The elote corn was dry and a bit tough.

Chimichanga (160 PHP). Your choice of beef or chicken wrapped buritto then deep fried to create an extra texture for this classic dish.

Nacho Ala Bomba (195PHP). This was probably the most appetizing thing we’ve seen all week.

The nacho chips are served then topped with a mix of mozzarella, cheddar, and La Carnita cheese sauce right on your table. The mix of cheese, beef, and beans in a happy harmony of flavors that dance in your mouth. Truly the most addicting nachos around.

The only thing that we believe can be improved is their sauces. The Cilantro sauce lacked flavor, as well as, the chimichurri.

Their price range is very affordable yet not sacrificing the use of ingredients to deliver what’s being promised on their menu.

We recommend getting their famous Nachos ala Bombait’s on a completely different league in the nachos game.

Overall, La Carnita, takes familiar flavors of Filipino and Mexican cuisine in a fusion that’s recognizable to the Filipino palate.

7 Reasons Why You Should Eat in Thailand

7 Reasons Why You Should Eat in Thailand

All you can do is EAT, EAT and EAT. Thailand just like most of the Southeast Asian countries is experienced thru the senses. Their food is spicy and apologetic in a sense that their food is perfectly balanced.

Ching Kee Beef Noodle: The Best Shrimp Wanton

Ching Kee Beef Noodle: The Best Shrimp Wanton

YOUR AUTHENTIC BEEF NOODLE HOUSE AT THE CENTER OF BANAWE.

This 15-seater restaurant is unassuming at best but is able to provide the Hong Kong City Food Vibe. The first thing you will probably notice is the smell, on your left side is where all the cooking happens and it’s a welcome scent for someone starving. The next one is that most of the people dining are Chinese, and most of them are even speaking in straight mandarin.

Once the waitress handed me the menu, you can see their wide selection of noodle soups and dumpling.

I’m not really a fan of tofu but I found this dish tasty and supplements our other orders.

Okay, so I’m sure you’re thinking that this is A LOT of wantons, and to be honest, I thought so too. You see from the perfectly thin wrapper that there is fresh shrimp in the center. Once I took my first bite, I was surprised there was this burst of heat at the center of the wanton. This was THE wanton I want. I never really differentiated the quality of wanton when I ate in other Chinese restaurants but this was just amazing. I can probably just have this with rice.

Another thing you can watch is how they make their wanton below:

Their beef was tender and tasty. This wasn’t really the best I’ve had but it’s on of the best you can find here in Manila. The noodles were springy and the soup was very rich in that beef flavor.

Ching Kee Beef Noodle is definitely a gem that I will come back to. The scents, the food and the atmosphere is just like what you would feel when in Hong Kong.  And if you ever visit, you need to try the shrimp wanton!!
