Well my favorite of the evening was the beef tapa served with pickled radish “atchara” and a fried quail egg on top – it was colourful, punchy and delicious, combining the rich minced beef with the tangy slice of radish with a red tint (from the beetroot juice added to the pickling liquid), topped with a cute little quail egg fried sunny-side up. Reminded me of Basque pintxos with the presentation and the bold flavors, and it’s easily the crowd's favorite.
I thought it’s a good 4 hours well-spent, not only with excellent food and drinks, but just being able to share the table with everyone loving food and fill the room in a relaxed vibe on a random weeknight. Congratulations Cheryl for successfully pulling the event together, and for the introduction of Filipino cuisine to this town. With a significant Pinoy population, I am surprised there’s such less representation of Filipino food in the local dining scene, but hopefully that's going to change gradually, with this feast being the first of many that I could enjoy.
