Andok's Porkcharap

Andok's Porkcharap is very delicious, crispy and tasty. The gravy is also yummy.We bought a couple of it for 38.00 pesos each. It was our viand last night since we already had our valentine lunch date yesterday.

Saturday, February 12, 2011


I just saw this in the market, i never tried this one before so i bought one pack. I fried it and made a viand for breakfast. It taste like meat loaf but meat loaf is more salty than this one. Meat loaf is soft and salami is not.

Salami is cured sausage, fermented and air-dried meat, originating from one of a variety of animals. It has been popular among Southern European peasants. The word salami, as currently used in English, is actually the plural form of the Italian salame. The word originates from the word Sale (salt) with a termination -ame used in Italian as an indicator of collective nouns.

A traditional salame is made from pork, chopped beef, venison, poultry, and horse.

Additional ingredients may include: salt, spices (usually white pepper) garlic minced, fat wine, various herbs, and vinegar.

Moud Halal Restaurant

Yesterday, we went to Quiapo to buy projector for my uncle. But before that, we ate in a Restaurant that serve muslim food. Last week, my hubby really wanted to eat there but unfortunately we have not found it. Yesterday we try to look it again and we found it! Yehey! It's our second time to eat there and the last time we dine there was two years ago that's why we already forgot the location and the name of the restaurant.

And now, the name of the restaurant is..... (drum roll) MOUD HALAL RESTAURANT
located at 887 Globo de Oro St., Quiapo, Manila near Muslim Mosque.

We ordered their famous yummy roasted chicken and kabsa rice.
