I’m now on my Day 6 entry for this cool iPhoneography challenge ^^ I’m obviously loving it. Yesterday, Frizz ( and L is also for Lunch ^^ ) made a comment on my Ox tongue post about a recipe for Ox tail. That seriously made me crave for one!! So I went to one of the must-visit local restaurants. It offers a wide variety of Filipino and international dishes… and cakes, they have cakes! ^^ Anyway, one of my favorite native dishes ever is the Kare Kare — a stew made of beef, ox tail and ox tripe and vegetables in peanut sauce. For the love of blogging, and because I’m really a glutton, I decided to go all out.lol We also ordered a couple of sandwiches: beef burger and a beef steak sub. There’s grilled squid and for dessert, a mango crepe and an apple muffin. But if there’s one dish that I keep coming back for, it’s the Crispy Beef Riblets. That’s exactly how beef is supposed to be cooked, plain and simple, and you can really taste all the yumminess oozing from the beef fat! It’s served with coleslaw and sweet potato fries. I also love their chicken potato salad but we skipped that ^^

I have a feeling this week’s theme just made me fat. Hope you had a fabulous lunch! xo ^^
*for day 7, I went back to the local diner an took some actual food photos ^^ view my posts here
My goodness that’s what I’d call a feast fit for a queen. I don’t know what you mean by beef riblets. Could I have a bite?
just beef ribs boiled then deep fried til it’s really fall-of-the-bone tender ^^ i sometimes just cook it at home.. salt and pepper and a tiny coating of flour , that’s all it needs before being fried ^^
oh boy that sounds like my kind of meal… What time’s lunch?
haha right now’s pretty good ^^
I’m getting ready to go to bed…but I’ve always liked midnight feasts!
