Adanao Square is next to the market square. It is also where Chow King is, occupying the ground floor corner space. This was where we have our breakfast in a nice cool and balmy morning. We were forewarned not to have food in Chow King as it is mediocre. The refrain was, go for authentic Filipino street food. Anyway it was not etitrely bad as fast franchised food has its merits. Good standard service, quality control, strategic and comfortable environment and consistent processes that delivers safe and clean food albeit compromising on taste.
Wanton Mee in all its mediocre, clinical and sterile form!
Wanton Beef Noodles. Taste 5/10.Then we took a stroll around the wet and dry morning market as well as checking out kiosks selling all types of food, crafts, souvenirs in various shapes, sizes and forms that touristy shoppers would look for and feel it is worth buying.Hawkers playing a cat and mouse game with enforcement authorities.Sausages galore!These were not soft tofu but LARD slabs for cooking. They have taken cooking to a dizzying lardy cholesterol heights.Pails and pails of large shrimps everywhere.Mussels, clams and snails.Mussels (tahong) stir-fried with garlic to perfection. Yum.
