MassKara Festival is one of the biggest festivals in the Philippines.
This is the view along Lacson Street. The crowd gets bigger past midnight. But believe it or not I did not go to Bacolod to party. How am I supposed to party when I'm by myself once more? Hehe. So kakain na lang ako di ba? :p
Apart from the salad and pasta dish, another favorite would be their pesto crusted chicken breast dish. Their pesto-aioli sauce is homemade and they serve it with grilled vegetables and your choice of sidings.
I got a stick of paa (leg and thigh) and petso (breast) with no rice. Pinapak ko lang siya and masarap nga. Lalo na with toyo (soy sauce) and calamansi? Yum!
Naubusan ako ng batchoy during my first visit so I just ordered fried isul (chicken ass, yes pwet! LOL) and spareribs. Masarap naman siya. But I was badly craving for batchoy that time, lalo na nung biglang umulan.
The very next day I was back in 21 for lunch and I finally ordered their best selling batchoy. Ako lang ba or mas masarap ang batchoy sa Iloilo? Parang nabitin ako sa mga laman-loob at bone marrow. Kulang din siguro sa alat. Anyway, sulit naman ang order coz less than a hundred pesos lang per bowl of batchoy. ;)
I am not a huge fan of cakes or pastries so I decided to play safe by ordering their best seller mango cheesecake and paired it with a glass of iced coffee. In fairness, it was really good. Yung mango, sweet. I hate ordering mango desserts tapos maasim yung mango. The cheesecake naman tastes good too, tamang sweetness lang. I wanted to bring home a box sana but then mahihirapan ako mag handcarry all the way to Iloilo airport so next time na lang.
This photo doesn't give justice to the backribs meal I ordered that costs ₱150.00 with my favorite soda (pepsi). This is by far the best backribs I've ever had in my life. No kidding. It was so good I was willing to order a dozen backribs to bring back home. ANG SARAP. Period. Gusto ko na ulit lumipad pa-Bacolod. Haha.
Nagutom ka ba? Don't worry ako rin. Haha.
