Updated (2015) Kanin Club Review --- Featured dish and its service
by Foodamn Philippines
Kanin Club restaurant known for Filipino cuisine are still considered by many when it comes to average get-together occasions. KC put together and applied little tweaks to a home-cooked version of some of the traditional Filipino food served in our dining tables. The restaurant mention from the list of experimented dishes they had that the concept of recipes was followed by others.
By September 2015, here's an update of Kanin Club sought after menu.
|Thai Green Mango Salad Php190|
Thai green mango salad and ensaladang talong were both done nicely, they captured the simplicity in terms of taste and plating. Crispy liempo is like a toasted bacon (our home-cooked version mas masarap! hahaha! The process: boil-drain-oven-toast-chilled-pan fry. Plus we made a very irresistible vinegar dip plunge into native garlic, native onions, black pepper, lots of chili and apple cider). In other words, "walang panlaban ang 3-sauce ni Kanin Club, those dips they served were all ready-made served from grocery bottle, no effort I must say!
|Crispy Liempo Php160|
|Seafood Kare-kare Php330|
|Sinangag na Sinigang Php220|
|Crispy Dinuguan Php290|
The laing dish is too salty and not well simmered. I should know :) I grew up with my Bicolana Lola (grandmother) who made the best tasting spicy Laing and almost imaginable vegetable cooked with gata (coco milk) and chili pepper, name it she has her signature gata dish (from papaya, malunggay, kamansi, sitaw/kalabasa, crab, and yellow fin tuna). The reason why we hate laing that is "masabaw."
Another dish we thought was good beyond the rates - Binukadkad na Tilapia. The batter-filled fish is flavorless and the soy dip is spiceless, better pan fry your own tilapia back home then prepare soy sauce with chopped onion, calamansi or dayap, chopped chili and a dash of pepper.
Squid in Salt and Pepper - overcooked (makunat) and extremely bland. Again the sauce somewhat senseless :)
|Binukadkad na Tilapia Php270|
Turon KC ala Mode for dessert won the attention of the kids, maybe the ice cream factor did it. After a series of twelve full plates, we'll not walk away without dessert - there's enough room for little surprises. Turon (saba bananas) stuffed with halo-halo flavors: macapuno, red beans, ube yam, topped with queso (cheese flavor) ice cream. So good we'll have them again.
|Turon KC a la Mode Php150|
Kinilaw na Blue Marlin - Php300
Squid in Salt and Pepper (Calamares style) - Php250
Sinigang na Salmon Belly sa Miso - Php391
Mushrooms ala Pobre - Php190
Ensaladang Talong - Php150
