During the Metro Angeles Food Tour, we were lucky enough to sample some of the best-selling dishes of Abe’s Farm from appetizers, entrees, and desserts.
Paco Fern & Tomato Salad (P155.00)
The salad is made up of blanched fresh fiddlehead ferns, tomatoes, capsicum, red onions and garnished with slices of salted eggs. It is drizzled with vinaigrette to enhance the flavor of the salad.
Fried Lumpia (P135.00)
Crispy and savory vegetable spring rolls
Abe’s Farm’s version of gising-gising is composed mainly of sliced kangkong stalks, meat, chili and coconut milk. The sweetness of the coconut milk and the kick of the chili make the dish more flavorful.
Sinuteng Baby Pusit (P175.00)
It’s squid sauteed in olive oil, garlic, soy sauce and chili.
Knockout Knuckles (P595.00)
It’s their version of the Pinoy-favorite crispy pata which uses only pork knuckles instead of the whole pork legs.
Crispy Pork Adobo ni Lola Ising (P395.00)
The pork belly was slow-cooked in soy sauce, vinegar and water to get the perfect tenderness of the meat. After which, it was deep fried to crisp the outside layer of the meat. It’s crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
Binukadkad na Pla-pla (P395.00)
Deep fried butterflied fish.
Klasik Kare-Kare (P595.00)
Abe’s Farm’s Kare-kare has both oxtail and tripe with rich and tasty peanut sauce. I actually like the consistency of the sauce as it wasn’t too thick. The added veggies were not overcooked so I also liked it.
Betute is a Pinoy exotic food which is basically deep-fried stuffed farmed frogs. It is widely available in the province of Pampanga.
Sikreto ni Maria (P165.00)
This is not your ordinary dessert. It’s sticky rice and fresh slices of mangoes covered in vanilla ice cream. It’s mouthwatering and refreshing.
