Sinangag na Sinigang, Kanin Club Food Trip
Sinangag na Sinigang, Kanin Club Food Trip. There have been a lot of good reviews on the Filipino food specialty restaurant simply called Kanin Club. I could not tell any negative thing about every dish that I have tried during my several visit to the restaurant, all that I could say is great. One of the most talked about Kanin Club dish is their innovative Sinangag na Sinigang, yes it is siningang but it is fried rice. I am still figuring out how they cooked the dish, I have seen some recipes using the sinigang mix on fried rice from some food bloggers on the net but I doubt it if it was cooked that way. Kanin Club’s Sinangag na Sinigang is obviously sourly with some tempura fried vegetables and a big thin sliver of pork belly toppings. It would have been good if the pork belly slice topping is crispy fried similar to their equally popular starter Crispy Liempo.
The Crispy Liempo is made up of thin slices of fork belly, most likely pre-boiled and crispy deep fried served with a vinegar dip. I did tried to replicate it, just click on the link if you want to cook it at home. The dish is something to talk about while waiting for the main course.
The Crispy Tadyang is good alternative if you’re not into pork dish, it is not new there are other version on other Pinoy restaurant in fact I have my own version on the archives click the following link Crispy Tadyang to see the recipe.
To neutralize the above oily starters is the classic EnsaladangTalbos, it is made up of kamote tops with chopped tomato and onion served with bagoong na isda vinaigrette. Suggest to ask the waiter to serve it together with the starters. It is great as appetizer now if you wonder how it is cooked just checked out my version using kangkong.
If you really love seafood their Seafood Kare Kare is a winner the sauce is absolutely yummy, it is oozing with peanut sauce. As everyone is telling sarsa pa lang ulam na, it is served with ginisang bagoong alamang, but you won’t really bother adding it is already adequately seasoned and the bagoong alamang no longer required. Again I do have my on Seafood Kare Kare in the archives if you want to try and cook one at home.
One of my favourite dish is dinuguan. Kanin Club’s version is the Crispy Dinuguan. It is made up with crispy lechon kawali mixed with dinuguan sauce. Another must try, if you have not tasted a crispy version of dinuguan. Now want to try it at home try my Crispy Dinuguan version.
Another popular one is their Binukadkad na Tilapia, it is a whole fresh tilapia, butterflied and crispy deep fried, so crispy you can even eat the bones.
Now for the desert, another Kanin Club innovation their Turon KC, it is made up of the usual Banana Turon but with a twist, with purple yam jam, sweet coconut strips and mongo beans and topped with ice cream. It a halo halo turon, or you may say fried halo halo?
Where to find Kanin Club? there is a branch at Westgate, Filinvest Alabang, Muntinlupa it is near my place. If you are planning to dine there, be there early it is usually crowded in the evenings especially during the weekends you may have to wait outside the restaurant to get seated the place is not that big.
There is another branch at Paseo de Sta. Rosa, Sta. Rosa, Laguna; one at UP-Ayala Land Techno Hub, Commonwealth Ave, Diliman, Quezon City and another at Ayala Triangle Gardens, Makati.
