So, I went out again with my two closest friends, namely Irene and Michelle. Irene and I were so hungry so we we’re looking for a nice restaurant to eat at. Since we both want to try something new. We went to KKK, actually it’s my first time to hear that restaurant. I have no idea at all.
It was all about Filipino dishes but as they said they are serving it with a twist. I think, they tried to reinvent those all time Filipino favorite dishes. I was reading the menu and all of it were in deep Filipino/Tagalog language. I realized that it’s easier to understand the english translation of the words. One example is the word “tiltilan” according to them it means salads and deserts, it’s my first time to hear that word and it was stuck in my mind.
For Filipinos, KKK is an acronym for the Kataastaasang Kagalanggalang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan, a patriotic secret society founded by Andres Bonifacio. Initially, the KKK or Katipunan was a secret organization until its discovery in 1896 that led to the outbreak of the Philippine Revolution.
So, since they are serving only Filipino foods, they named it KKK, with a tagline “food revolution”.
The place is like an old Philippine setting/era.
We did not order much because we’re worried that we might not be able to eat them all.
Our desert was the all time Filipino favorite (especially for pregnant women!haha) Mango and Bagoong!
Here’s the Bagoong, for those who’s not familiar with this. Bagoong (Tagalog pronunciation: [bɐɡoˈoŋ]) is a Philippine condiment made of partially or completely fermented fish or shrimps and salt. The fermentation process also results infish sauce (known as patis).
See? I told you, we were so hungry! hehe. I think, this should have been an Independence day post! haha! Oh well, that was another fun filled dinner. I went home with a happy tummy and a smile on my face.
I’m looking forward to another food adventure. =)
