What would an afternoon at the games be without the customary pleasure (win or lose) of the postgame gathering? Here to discuss the game highlights, hindsight critical moments and goofed plays, look forward to the next game.

For games at the Big Dome there is no shortage of postgame hangouts: Dencio's for those inclined to have a full Pinoy meal, Cafe Bola for those looking for Continental/Fusion fare, Gloria Maris for highend Chinese food, Italianni's for pasta and pizza, Oyster Boy for (relatively) cheap beer.

At the Ninoy we have the usual suspects: McDonald's, Wendy's, the plethora in the Harrison Plaza Area, and towards the midtown area the establishments of Malate/Ermita such as Gilligan's, Tia Maria and Padi's Point.

Where do you guys usually hang out after the games?

Great thread, Tito Joe :)



Where do you guys usually hang out after the games?

In the parking lot of the FEU Gym! Hehehe.

No, seriously, after games in Araneta Coliseum I find that it's most convenient to stick to the restos built into the Big Dome. Although I know from experience that the surrounding malls have their fare share of good places to eat, after games I'm too tired to go very far. Naubos lahat ng lakas ko sa heckling :P

For games in the hardcore venues (San Beda, FEU, EAC and Loyola/Blue Eagle Gym come to mind), there's always a good chance that there's a McDonald's or Jollibee within walking distance. The food there is enough to tide you over until you figure out where you want to do your serious eating and drinking ;D

Bluewing, Gilligan's Malate is along J Nakpil. It occupies the space that Bargo's used to occupy. If you're at Taft on the Baclaran-bound side, just turn right at Nakpil. Gilligan's is at the third or fourth corner.

Anthony, ok bang pagkain sa press room kapag UAAP and NCAA seasons?

Araneta - Dencio's or Istambul Express
BEG - Katips or Que Rico
NAS/Rizal - been a long time since the UAAP was held here, and I'm still exploring.

Bluewing, I wouldn't know for sure. Basta ang alam ko P27 lang ang San Miguel beer nila, tapos may masarap silang chicken strips na ok ang portion.

There is also a place called Guilly's at the end of Morato in QC near ABS-CBN, and I believe its the same place, baka different management or franchisee lang, because the prices and the mune sure look identical.

if ever in the abs cbn area, try arte's cafe at sgt esguerra street, beside esquinita bar...marami ang portions ng food at buy 4 and take two ang beer.....lumalabas na 25 php ang beer, free wireless internet access pa...

If you are coming from NAS or RMC I would recommend this (relatively) new area within the CCP where there are a wide array of choices from pinoy to chinese to streetfood to cafes. You can even dine al fresco or watch an accoustic performance over beer. Facing CCP this is on your right side and is just after the bike area

The Dencio's in that cluster is very spacious and airy. Yes, those are good places to be after a game at the Ninoy.

Of course nothing beats good old fashioned San Miguel beer especially if you make a pest of yourself at a friend's house after a game. ;D

May isang lugar duiyan sa may border ng Maynila At Quezon City diyan mismo sa may Espana, ang tawag sa kanya "Bulaluhan Ni Ramirez", although dati ang turing lang dun ay simpleng "Bulaluhan."

Ewan ko lang kung pasok ito sa usapin dito pero sa totoo lang ang sarap mag-bulalo dun, bottomless ang sabaw, at hindi ito gaya ng ibang bulalo na nilaga lang, may tunay na asim ng sinigang sa sampaloc ang sabaw, sakto sa mga nagpapababa ng tama matapos ang toma. At sino naman ang hindi dumederecho ng toma matapos ang isang laro? Matindi ang dating ng sabaw ng bulaluhan, at malinamnam na simpleng biyas, tuhod o tlampakan ang bulalo nila. Basta um-order ka sa kanila, kahit hindi bulalo, may bottomless sabaw ka. Da best pumunta dun matapos ang toma, mga bandang alas-onse ng gabi hanggang alas-dos ng madaling araw, bente-kwatro oras naman sila e.

Marami nga din pala silang ibang potahe: inihaw na liempo, inihaw na plapla, inihaw na hito, lengua estofado, chicharon bulaklak, Bicol express, sisig, karekare, chopsuey, papaitan, monggo gisado. Mga simpleng pagkain lang sa isang simpleng lugar, pero lintek naman sa sarap at mura. Madalas ang order ko ay isang bulalo at isang inihaw, tapos dalawang kanin, namumulubi ako pagbayad ko kasi halagang P98 ang singil para sa ganun karaming pagkain. 'Yun nga lang, hindi yata pwede dun ang mga masyadong maselan gaya nung mga taga-Katipunan.

May isa pa nga palang branch ang bulaluhan, diyan sa may Ramirez street mismo, 'yung pababang karsada kapag nadun ka sa main entrance ng UDMC.

Kung trip mo ng hardcore na inuman diyan ka sa may RON REG sa Boni Avenue sa Mandaluyong, tapat halos ng Caltex dun. Meron din silang bilyaran at tapsilugan. Mura lang ang beer, nasa P25 lang yata ang malaking Red Horse. Pwede ka ding manghiram ng pitsel at manghingi ng yelo kung trip niyong itagay ang Kabayo. Tambayan ito ng mga player ng JRU pati na rin ng mga galing laro sa Dumlao or sa Reyes.

THe Korean restaurant in the City Golf complex also along Julia Vargas, good food and cheap too.

Salamat sa mga reply. Mukhang masarap ngang tambayan ang Aysees for post-game food and booze. Pero meron ba silang masarap na quick snacks? Something to take in between games na mabilis lutuin?

* * *SAN BEDA COLLEGE was transformed into the biggest party place in recent memory as hundreds of students, alumni and fans rushed to the campus after the Red Lions took home the 82nd NCAA Senior basketball crown last September 22 at the Araneta Coliseum.

* * *A thanksgiving mass at the Abbey of Our Lady of Montserrat set the start for the night's festivities on the right foot.

* * *Fireworks, free flowing food and drinks welcomed all those who came.* A bonfire was held just outside the Saint Placid Sports Center while inside, top bands performed to the audience's delight until the wee hours of the morning.

* * *We hope this becomes a yearly tradition!* *;)

YOOHOO na pala ang pangalan nung dating Yahoo barbecue sa Metrowalk, katabi halos nung PNP detachment dun. Mura pa din ang chibog, P49 lang ang paborito kong lechon liempo meal. At 24 hours na sila, merong breakfast menu, siguro by popular request nung mga nagtatrabaho sa mga call center sa paligid, lalo na 'yung ICT sa Union Bank Plaza na katapat lang nila.

JUN'S RACER BOY DINAKDAKAN

2 kg Maskara ng Baboy, including the ears and pork brains (Have your butcher clean it up. Don't buy from the supermarkets, they don't taste as good), chopped up into about eight even sectors
3-4 litres of tap water for boiling
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup white vinegar

4 tablespoons fresh-squeezed calamansi juice
4 tablespoons native suka (Paombong is the best, sukang Iloko is also good)
1 tablespoon coarse salt
1 tablespoon mill-ground black pepper
1/4 cup Japanese mayonnaise
1 tablespoon siling labuyo, minced
2 thumb-size pieces of ginger root, peeled, smashed and minced
1 large purple (local) onion, finely chopped
1 bunch of spring onions (about 6-7 inches long, isang guhit in your local market), chopped
2 large stalks of celery, de-ribbed and finely chopped

Marinate the maskara in a bowl or deep platter in the soy sauce and vinegar (room temperature about 2-3 hours, refrigerated about 4-5 hours). Do not discard the marinade yet.

In a large pot, boil the water over high heat. Once a rolling boil is achieved put in the maskara one at a time. Bring everything up to a rolling boil again and reduce heat to low-medium. Cover the pot and tenderize for 25-30 minutes. Put in the brain in the last five minutes.

While waiting for the maskara to tenderize start a good charcoal fire for grilling. Once the maskara tenderizes remove it and the brain from the boil, return the maskara into the marinade for another hour. Once the charcoal fire is ready grill the maskara sectors over it, just enough to get good grill marks on as much of the pieces as possible, about 3-4 minutes per section.

Chop up the sectors into small bite-size pieces.

In a large bowl combine all ingredients and mix well. Adjust for spiciness and/or saltiness to taste.

(Dahil off-topic daw sa "Legends of The Covered Courts" thread ang Manang's...)

Ang Alamat ng Covered Court
Jonar Sabilano

Legendary nga ang inihaw na liempo sa Manang's. Minsan, nagpareserve kami ng isang court para sa pick-up games ng company namin. Pagkatapos namin magbayad sa Admi, bumalik kami sa PE Dept kasi doon kami naka-park. Tapos, nagyaya 'yung kasama ko.

"Ano? Manang's?"
"Sige."

Alas-onse n'un. Noong 1999, noong bagong-salta pa lang ako, pagpatak ng alas-onse, SRO crowd na. Parang mga pelikula ni Sylvester Stallone sa Aliw Theater, Novaliches, noong 1987. Sa pagkakataong ito, parang art film sa Instituto Cervantes ang crowd.

Hindi na kami nag-aksaya ng panahon. Dumiretso kami sa counter. Kilala pa yata ako ni Manang.

"Isang inihaw po. Double rice. Tsaka isang itlog na maalat at kamatis."

Ganoon din ang order ng kasama ko. Itong kasama ko, Atenista rin, at magka-batch kami (MIS ako, ME siya), pero nagkakilala na kami sa trabaho. Sabi niya, "Kunin mo na 'yung suka, baka maubusan tayo."

Sagot ko, "Sa ganitong ka-konting crowd? You must be kidding me." Pero sige, hablot pa rin ng suka at toyo.

Doon na kami sa mesa sa tapat ng kahera umupo. Point guard ang laro ni J, 'yung kasama ko, sa company team namin. Small forward ako, pero point guard ng ACheS sa mga pagkakataong nahahatak ako ng mga dati kong kasama sa Block K. Kuwentuhan kami.

"Ako dati, puro step-back 3," pagmamayabang ni J. Hindi ako magpapatalo.
"Nagtap-board ako dati, galing sa loob ng free throw circle."
"Woo-shoo. Barbero."

Umabot pa kay Padre Ferriols ang usapan. Nag-Manny Dy kasi siya, at pinipilit niyang mas magaling si Manny Dy kaysa Padre.

"Ala-una na pala."
"Oo nga, e. May report pa pala ako mamaya."

Taga-UP pala ang bosing namin. Hindi siya makapaniwalang mas masarap ang inihaw ng Manang's sa barbecue sa Beach House. Kaya kinabukasan, dumaan muna ako sa Manang's. Nag-take out ako ng liempo. Tapos, nilagay ko sa microwave. Pagdating ng lunch namin sa pantry, nilabas ko ang pinakatatagong sikreto ng Katipunan.

Sabi ni J, "Shiyet, Jonar, Manang's tayo ulit."
Sabi ni bosing, "Sana, nag-Ateneo na lang pala ako."
Sabi ko, "Tsalap."

Make your own recovery meal!

JACK'S SATAY-STYLE PASTA SALAD

500 gms spaghetti (1 pack of Del Monte Pasta Italianna will sffice), cook according to package directions

350 gms chicken thigh fillet, seasoned with 1 1/2 teaspoon course salt, 1 1/2 teaspoon mill-ground black pepper, 2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce, 4 teaspoons fresh squeezed kalamansi juice (marinade for 1 hour at room temperature, 3 hours refrigerated).

Grill over a good charcoal or wood fire until there are grill marks on as many sides of each thigh as possible, about 4-5 minutes per side is enough, skin side first. Then chop into about 3/4-in dice.

1/2 cup toasted peanuts and/or cashew nuts, roughly chopped or crushed (don't over do it, its for texture and flavor)
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

1/2 cup scallions, chopped
1/4 cup spring onions, chopped
1 small yellow pepper, 1 small green pepper, 1 small red pepper, each julienned

For Dressing __

1/3 cup crunchy American peanut butter (local ones are too sweet)
1/3 cup creamy American peanut butter (ditto)
2/3 cup light olive oil
2 tablespoons local garlic, minced
1 heaping tablespoon fresh squeezed kalamansi juice
1 tablespoon iodized fish sauce (patis)
1/2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon mill-ground black pepper
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

Mix all of the above ingredients together and pulse lightly in a food processor for about 10 seconds. Adjust for saltiness, acidity and spiciness according to personal taste.

Toss everything together in a large bowl except the nuts and sesame seeds. Chill for about an hour in the refrigerator. When the noodles and other ingredients have been well coated by the dressing then sprinkle nuts and sesame seeds and toss a little bit more. Serve immediately.

Since a lot of people are now into wine, try this bottle: 2001 HITCHING POST PINOT NOIR. Relatively low price at about $30-32 a bottle. It isn't hard to find and it goes well with just about any kind of hearty meal, not necessarily just red meat and foods with heavy sauces. Any respectable wine store or win section in any good grocery should have it. I suggest you have it with old-fashioned spaghetti and meatballs, or even thick fried porkchops with bottled apple sauce or even your favorite lechon manok. Snobs would say this should not go with Pinoy food. I say "F--- them all..." Try a glass after keeping it for two hours in the refrigerator while eating your favorite adobo with your hands. Multicultural culinary heaven...

Having your Bourbon and eating it too. And here you thought they just made for good drinking. The world's favorite bourbon makes for one heck of an aroma and flavor kick as a marinade/braising liquid in this adobo-style dish.

JACK'S BOURBON BRAISED LIEMPO AND CHICKEN GIZZARD

1 kg pork liempo, deboned and chopped, about 2 inches x 1 inch x 1 inch
1/2 kg chicken gizzard (complete with heart and liver), separate the liver from the gizzard and heart

1 1/2 cups Jack Daniel's Whiskey (Wild Turkey will do as well. Do not use Southern Comfort or any of the "premium" small batch whiskeys.)
3 tablespoons fresh kalamansi juice
3 tablespoons native vinegar (preferrably Ilokos or Quezon)
2 tablespoons Hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons Oyster sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon Muscovado sugar (washed sugar will do)
1 tablespoon small red chili peppers, minced
1 tablespoon black pepper corns, roughly crushed
1 whole large head of native garlic, chopped
1 whole large purple onion, chopped
2 thumb-sized ginger roots, peeled, bashed and chopped
1/2 cup scallions, chopped small
2 large bayleaves, hand crumpled

Combine all marinating ingredients (except the scallions) in a large bowl and mix well. Marinade pork and chicken, two hours at room temperature, four to five hours if refrigerated. Turn over every 30 minutes to ensure an even marinading.

Remove pork and chicken from marinade and put in a separate bowl or deep platter. Also remove as much of the solid bits of spices and herbds as you can with a slotted spoon or spatula, also set aside on a deep saucer. Save the marinade.

Heat a large deep pan or pot over medium-high heat. When it is well heated through put in the pork two to three pieces at a time. Then put in the chicken pieces, two to three at a time as well. Saute just so until all the meat pieces are a nice light brown with some slight burnt crusting. Roughly mash the livers with a fork until they break up, you don't need to pulverize them. Some fat would have rendered by this time. Add in the solid bits and saute them until they sweat. Add in the marinade. Bring everything to a good rolling boil while stirring. If you cease to stir your dish will burn. Add a half-cup of water as insurance liquid. Lower heat to low and cover. Simmer for 35-40 minutes.

Serve hot in large bowls or deep platters. Sprinkle scallions all over before serving. Goes well with rice of almost any kind: plain, jave, garlic, herbed.

Now that the season is about to begin, I figured I'd get this thread active again.

In case some of the games are held at PhilSports, I'll be going to Bahay ni Juan in Kapitolyo after. Reasonably-priced beer, good ambience (may outdoor smoking area), and OK na pulutan. At times there are bands and poets performing there, but on weekdays, it's a good place to just kick back and relax dahil kakaunti lang ang tao. Malapit lang sa entrance ng Barangay Kapitolyo.

if it's philsports and you have your wife and kids with you, the closest that fits you and your kaboodle is the pearl plaza complex. (just make sure you duck when bullets start whizzing by! :'( ). we actually walk to philsports from there, passing through my parents' place for the shortcut, all the better to wear off a heavy meal at honjin (on the 2nd floor), a light one at pancake house (talagang light -- harang pa nga, eh! but otherwise delicious) or hotshots burger, or a frappe and pastry at starbucks. at the road in back (parallel to san miguel avenue), there's a hodge-podge of eating places like madrileña, hen lin, and rufo's, which serves up a mean tapsilog (and all the other "silogs").

if you have wheels and don't want to walk, the whole ortigas center -- from metrowalk in the east to megamall in the west and from galleria in the north to even EDSA central in the south -- is yours for the taking. but if you're a member of valle verde country club, just cross the road from philsports, and you're good to go! the whole place is also peppered with the ubiquituous mini stops and 7-elevens, so if you're in a rush to get to your game, no worries and no hurries.

I discovered Cubao X's environs this year. A short walk from Araneta will take you to all the galleries, shoe stores and antique shops you can take for a night.

Of course, it has its spots too. A bunch of award-winning filmmakers own Mogwai, which incidentally holds movie screenings every night ranging from art films to Rene Requiestas classics. Beer is cheap at PhP 30 for San Miguel Pale and PhP 32 for San Mig Light. Be sure to try their Bacon Liver Roll with Mashed Potato, and the Lentils with Twice Cooked Fish served with rice. Note: it is closed on Sundays.

Another of my haunts is Alan's Grill, just a few steps from Mogwai. They offer San Mig Light at PhP 180 (?) for a bucket of 5 + 1. They also serve some of the best sinigang and fried hito in town. This one's open on Sundays, but closes earlier than Mogwai does.

You must not fall into the tourist trap of Greek food, Greece’s restaurant critic Albert Arouh has advised. He calls moussaka, Greek salad and souvlaki “cliché” dishes for tourists. He also warns that hummus isn’t even Greek; ubiquitous tourist traps serve it as the quintessential Greek food only because Cypriots often run Greek restaurants abroad where they serve this Middle Eastern delicacy.

And yet when The Greek Gaydess, a Greco-American friend, visited Cyma three years ago, he loved the food, cliché though they may be.

“I can cook better,” he joked. “But it’s good!”

It’s the same sentiment expressed by many Cyma fans, who have followed its growth from a Boracay favorite to a recipient of Best Restaurant awards.

If imitation is the best form of flattery, then Robbie Goco, chef and creator of Cyma, must say thank you for the compliment that is Greeka Kouzina, a restaurant reminiscent of most things Cyma. Another friend whispered that Goco was upset that his menu was copied. But this is grapevine tittle-tattle and unconfirmed—either by Cyma or Kouzina.

Anyway, Goco need not be bothered because if indeed he was copied, it only proves he has blazed a trail. He may take inspiration from the Starbucks Siren, who remains the queen of quick espresso (and the Christmas planner) in spite of Figaro and Bo.

Full operation

But Greeka Kouzina may keep the Cyma group on its toes now that it is on full operation. Clearly, it has been gaining an acceptable reputation through word of mouth, as the wait for a table may take as long as half an hour on a Sunday. And it doesn’t accept reservations on weekends.

At first glance, it is difficult to see why. The restaurant is out of the way, on P. Guevarra Street in San Juan, not even on J. Abad Santos (Little Baguio) where the quaint but popular restaurants are. And while the giant sign outside its doors helps, once you step in, you may be greeted by Greek chaos: a confused waiter, a guest screaming directions to the restaurant on the phone, hungry patrons sitting on the stairs waiting for a table, and a lady in shorts barking directions to the servers as to where to seat people.

Yet like a Mark Webb movie, chaos is juxtaposed against calm. There is utter disparity between those who are standing and those who are seated and have been served their food. It is as if the food on the table creates a bubble that confines seated guests to their space, suddenly oblivious to the rest of the restaurant.

That is, in fact, the magic of Greeka Kouzina’s food—enticing to the eye, alive in the mouth and effortless to digest, such that you are inclined to forget the chaotic world around you.

The fig roka salad, which astounds you with its size (good for four to six), becomes more impressive with its orchestra of flavors and textures: sweetness from chewy figs; saltiness from chalky Parmesan cheese; bitterness from crisp arugula and walnuts. As if all that wasn’t enough, sun-dried tomatoes are thrown in, too.

The watercress salad with blue cheese, though less snappy, is also laudable and proves with its pears that the restaurant does not scrimp on ingredients.

The hummus, origins notwithstanding, is an ode to the chickpea, not so giddily mashed as to become flavored Gerber the way other restaurants serve it. The lamb chop burger is juicy and well-executed.

Highly recommended

The resto is proudest of its Arni Lemonato or roasted lamb, highly recommended by the servers, and rightly so. Roasted for five hours, it lives up to its menu-proclaimed description of meat that “falls off the bone.” It also maintains the gaminess lamb-lovers seek, while being gently refined by rosemary.

The lamb ribs, aka Paidakia, is also a delight. Be ready to nibble.

While the lamb appears to be the specialty, the beef is also very impressive. The beef souvlaki is even more tender than the Krasates (pork chops).

But other items are less stellar. As with the pork, the salmon is just okay. The Spanakorizo, Greece’s rice version of spinach risotto, is also just okay, especially on a Monday when it is less fresh than over the weekend. The stuffed zucchini and moussaka, like the gravy, bring back great memories—of your high-school cafeteria.

However, you will end on a high note with the baklava—that is, if you can appreciate the generous scoop of authentic yogurt atop it. (Be ready to explain to those not accustomed around you that the yogurt is not panis but sour, as it should be.)

Note also that this is not the drier baklava more predominantly seen in Mediterranean restaurants here. At Kouzina, it is thicker, more chewy and with softer filo. So the yogurt may be sour but it will be a sweet ending.

Slow service

Be ready for slow service, mains delivered before the salad, and a frazzled waitress. But let it go. It’s a kitchen, as its name says, not a stage. It is Greek, not French. It is hot (literally, if you sit beside a window), not haute.

Plus, cliché as the menu may be to Grecian purists, the food served will succeed in making visitors appreciate the restaurant’s concept of Greek food. And in the end, that’s what matters.

Greeka Kouzina is at 285 P. Guevarra St., Little Baguio, San Juan; tel. 02-6245974. Open daily for lunch, 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m.; and dinner, 5:30-10 p.m. Major credit cards accepted. Wheelchair accessible for the ground floor. Limited parking.

Bar Chow, Bar None

The Black Boar serves straightforward, really good hardcore drinker’s food

Chef Nich Viray is quite an interesting and colorful character if we compare him with the younger chefs who lead similarly multi- faceted lives. The varied jobs he has taken point at activities that need a certain finesse and artistic leaning. Fresh out of school, he worked in a pizza place that honed his knowledge in bread and fermentation. He also worked in his mom’s thriving home based pastry business and because of his drawing skills got interested in tattoo art where he professionally rendered tattoos concurrent with his life as a culinarian.

His last stint was with his uncle a construction contractor where he acquired his know-how and where he found the knowledge to build with a few assistants, The Black Boar, in the bustling restaurant row of Kapitolyo. The rustic pub or dark wood facade immediately conjures and a warm, quaint, and friendly bar sizeable enough to be given a personal imprint by Nich and his wife.

The formula for a good and successful drinking place is an owner who understands the service of food and drink that truly restores the spirit after a long day’s work, a week long stint of studying or gaining positive points on a date who also likes good food and drinks. The regular beers are cold and served at sub-zero temp while there are choices also of craft and imported brews such as the Inedit which was surprisingly priced low. There is a good stock of spirits, a good choice of triple and double distilled vodkas, a decent range of gins including Tanqueray Ten and the Botanist. There is also a reasonably priced selection of Scotch and Tennessee whiskies plus some popular Tequila brands. The small capacity and subdued lighting gives the serious bar drinker an opportunity to gather his or her thoughts without the rowdy noise of these giant pavilions like “drinker’s havens.”

So with well served drinks, one has to complete the ideal bar formula with great bar chow. I would characterize Chef Nich Viray’s food to be hardcore drinker’s food with the addition of one element. Nich’s culinary training comes with a touch of refinement in what can be described as his food for barakos or those people (including women) who like straight forward, honest, and unpretentious cooking. Take the simple chicharon bulaklak in his menu served to you with chili vinegar. The Offal is rendered off fat and is fried carefully to a state where the frills or “petals” are crisp and the center is still moist and chewy with clean flavors. A spiced salt finishes this pulutan dish but the dip is no ordinary chili vinegar as it adds to the tastiness of the dish without artificial additives. In many cases, an order of chicharon bulaklak in many establishments would be overdone and would just taste of the oil it has been fried in. A look in Black Boar’s menu shows that salpicado seems to be a saleable item as there are at least four variants of this dish. Most recent was a clamor of the older bar habitués to have something “healthier.” So Nich came out with tofu salpicado which is the same wholesome garlicky dish (this tome meatless….) with a good dose of olive oil, wine, and genuine asturian paprika. For those who want other appetizers, I would recommend the parmesan wings (especially enjoyed by a group of women in the other table) and the flavorful and robust Andouille sausage that was being ordered by the people unwinding and watching basketball by the bar.

Two of the best revelations for me that I was lucky enough to try were the pork chops and Chef Viray’s slow roasted beef belly. These items at a certain time are not available anymore because of the growing number of fans who spread the word. The pork chop is a humongous (smallest is 400gms) and special custom cut that has an added lip of pork belly to ensure juiciness. Tender without the powdery texture of commercial tenderizers this Black Boar pork chop is my concept of honest cooking without the flavors of commercial gravy mixers or seasonings (and I hope he keeps it that way). Similar to the concept of honest cookery is the rich and rather creamy flavors one gets from his slow roasted beef belly. I asked him if he brines the beef belly and he says it is rubbed with herbs and spices and goes straight to the oven for a very slow roast. Trying this one understands why these items always are bestsellers in his menu. When asked about his future plans he says he is adding a couple of tables from his defunct smoking room. If my cravings for that sinful pork chop or beef belly gets too powerful, I might need to go there soon…. but I’ll have to stay away from that evil bottle of absinthe standing solo in his bar…. it’s going to Hades in every shot!!!
