Street food like no other at Lime 88



After enjoying Kanto Freestyle Breakfast so much, the owners also invited us to sample their food at Lime 88.  It was a good thing I did not decline their invitation even if it was a busy Monday night.  It turns out they have fine street food. 

 




Balut in Red Wine Sauce (P180)


I have to admit I was never a fan of Balut and the last time I ate one was when I was 6  years old.  However, this one really impressed me.



Quail Egg Tempura with Soy Marin Glaze and Sinamak (P120)


For some reason, everyone else was ignoring the quail egg tempura.  I don't know why because it was really good.
 


Assorted Street Style BBQ Platter (P185)


All the barbeque meat here are fried as you order them so they really taste fresh.  Believe it or not, it was my first time to taste isaw and it was amazing.



 Bacon Mussels (P170)



(Clockwise from bottom left) License to Chill, Tiramisu Martini, Brown Sugar Daddy and Chocnut Martini


The other bloggers were not heavy drinkers so I had to drink most of the drinks that were served.  I have to say the tiramisu martini was the best among the four drinks that were served to us.


 Creamy Garlic Spicy Tuyo Pasta (P175)


I have never thought I have seen anything like it so you can only imagine the look on my face when the Tuyo pasta came out.  It was one of those dishes where you would either like it or not but most of us really did and I recommend it to everyone.



 Longganisa Pizza


I never thought the combination of tuyo and longanisa would become so quaint.  This pizza is extraordinary but it will be in every foodie's wish list very soon.
 


Crispy Corned Beef, Paris Mash, Sauteed Onions (P170)


Mashed potatoes and corned beef were a great combination here.  It was really a pleasure to have both of these two cooked this way.



 Wilted Kangkong with Asian Hollandaise and Quail Egg (P120)




Isaw Pizza (P210)


The Isaw Pizza was amazing.  Some pizzas suffer from too many toppings causing it to have a really bad taste.  However, this one had many toppings but it was still good.  After I had one slice, I was already looking forward to the next.
 


 Tres Leches (P120)



Salted Caramel Cake (P120)




Chocolate Sansrival (P120)




Flourless Chocolate Chocnut Cake (P120)


If you think we were already full for dessert then think again.  The 3 cakes were indeed for those who had the sweet cravings.  Unfortunately, I had cough and colds so I was not able to enjoy these delectable goodies.

what a great twist in our usual street foods that we eat! They made something so unique yet pleasing to the eyes.

But I don't think the cakes and martinis belong in the street foods. hehe! :D

This is street food on the next level. And that Balut, I think we should call it Balut version 2.0, hehehe, this is very interesting.
