Craving for C2's Crispy Kare-Kare

A friend, who really has high standards when it comes to food because her family owns a famous restaurant in Bicol, recommended C2 Classic Cuisine. So we decided to have a dinner there, four of us, at their branch at Level 6 of Edsa Shangri-La Plaza. And oh gosh it was such a gastronomic treat!

We ordered Bam-i (combination of egg and rice noodles sauteed with chicken, shrimps and Chinese sausage), Seared Tilapia in Coconut Emulsion (tender tilapia fillet served with pineapple salsa in creamy coconut sauce), Pinakbet at Bagnet and Crispy Kare-Kare.

The Pinakbet at Bagnet was very very yummy.

***Pinakbet at Bagnet, Php 245.00: An Ilocano favourite - stewed baby vegetables in fish bagoong topped with crispy bagnet cubes

The Crispy Kare-Kare is absolutely C2's star!

Kare-kare is a favourite dish of mine but I had never thought it could get better. C2's version is pure mouth-watering goodness. Crispy on the outside, but oh so soft in the inside!
Yeah I know just its mere picture can evoke a heart attack. But it's really a must try. Better bring some Lipitor just in case...

***Crispy Kare-Kare, Php 640: Crispy boneless pork leg drizzled with rich peanut sauce.

Prices are very reasonable. Cheap even, because the servings are generous. Though our party included two grown men but we weren't able to finish them all. (Or probably our bodies were having a hard time taking in a large dose of cholesterol all at once.)

See this for C2 Classic Cuisine's menu.

Will definitely go back for the Crispy Kare-Kare and to try the other tempting entrées.
