Karnitas Korner

Say hello to the newest porchetta (pronounced as por'ketta) joint in the metro, Karnitas Korner!

I love getting invites, I really do! Specially when it's a food tasting event that includes meat, meat, meat and of course more meat! LOL certified meat lover here. ;) So what is Karnitas Korner? It's a new hole-in-the-wall restaurant hidden somewhere in the heart of Kapitolyo, Pasig City where people can enjoy affordable gourmet dishes with their very crispy, fatty and juicy porchetta.

Karnitas Korner was developed by a group of seasoned entrepreneurs and culinary professionals who have been part of international concept restaurants (i.e. Hard Rock Cafe, T.G.I. Fridays) in the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam and Europe.

From L-R: Executive Chef Jacq Yap, co-owners Mr. Bayon Alcoseba and Mr. Leonard Rodriguez. Not in photo is Filipino-Indonesian co-owner Rafael Soedarjo.

Carnitas means small pieces of meat. It refers to the sliced porchetta cut into small pieces and added to different dishes like:

Porchetta Nachos (₱135.00)

Porchetta Tacos (₱185.00)

Porchetta rice dish served with steamed white rice, soft-boiled edd and roasted corn slaw. Sorry for the pic, didn't notice that this shot was blurry. Anyway, this dish is good for two for only (₱185.00).

Other non-porchetta dishes include the Poutine (₱125.00) and the Spinach Gouda Cheese Melt (₱185.00).

But personally the star of the show would have to be the Porchetta Sandwich (₱185.00) using fresh ciabatta bread with salsa verde. I LOVE IT! THIS IS FUCKENG BETTER THAN THE MCRIBS!
