Wonderful Food at Ninak


Berry Mango Slush


I still can't believe that me and my blogger friends got to start the week with a lunch date at Ninak Asian comfort food.  The restaurant is coming from the same people behind Brothers Burger lead by DJ Jose.  We found out that some people from Studio 23 were also going to go here to feature them later on in the day. 

Ninak is kanin spelled backwards and that is the reason why their rice is so good.  DJ told us the name is corny but it is because they could not think of any other name.




Chicken Satay (P255)
 
 

The first thing served to us turned out to be one of my favorites, Chicken Satay.  The peanut sauce that came along with it really fit it to a T.



Watermelon Lychee Slush


We had a lot of healthy drinks to choose from and I ended up choosing this drink and I did not regret that.  I just wished I could have had two of it.



Bagoong Rice (P149)





Laksa (P299)



Due to my low tolerance on spicy food, I did not have much of Laksa.  When I did get to taste it, I have to say it was amazing.  My companions for that day told me the same thing too.



Tinapa Rice (P135)



Lamb Masssaman (P320)


Every time you go to this restaurant, you must order the Lamb Massaman.  It is a dish that is a must try especially since it is indeed freshly cooked lamb.  The cooking time tends to get a bit long but the wait will be worth it in the end.
 


Ninak Rice (P80)

 
Ninak Rice takes the prize for the funniest name for a dish I have ever seen since it is rice repeated twice.  As for the taste, it is one rice that is worth its price of just 80 bucks.




Angus Beef Nilaga (P299)


An old Filipino favorite gets a twist as Angus Beef was the beef that was used in this nilaga soup.  It was one of those dishes that came and went quickly because everyone wanted some.   



Chicken BBQ with Ninak Sauce (P235)


These barbeque sticks are usually used for "pulutan" during inuman sessions but it is used for lunch here.  It was one of those dishes that were ignored but I had a lot of it and I thought to myself how everyone made a mistake by ignoring it.



Thai Halo Halo (P120)




Red Ruby (P120)




Turon Halo Halo (P120)


Dessert came and we were all already full.  We all had a bite in each of the 3 dessert dishes that were served to us and they were all magnificent.  The Turon Halo Halo is a creative masterpiece by a creative genius.

This reminds me of a noted fast food which offers unlimited rice. With your post here, I go for lamb massaman, besides it is so meaty or fleshy.

Laksa is comfort food here in Malaysia, if you can bear it's spiciness you'll surely love it. I'm quite surprise with their wide range choices of meals. May South East Asian, Middle Eastern then Filipino classics with twist.

I think the NINAK is kinda witty. But it does sound weird. Hehe. But everything looks delicious!

Jonas Labagala ayon kay ...

Ninak Rice indeed for the win! haha! Kanin kanin lang ang peg? :D

Anyway, I would love to try the Laksa since it's spicy and I would love to challenge myself on how far can I go with the levels of spiciness. :D

Another one in Kapitolyo. Hayz! The last time I visited, it didn't exist yet. Will have to give this a go, I'm missing the Kapitolyo food route.

I'm curious of the taste of Berry Mango Slush and what's the difference of the Thai Halo-halo with our very own local Filipino special halo-halo?

How I wish I could try these foods at Ninaks.

Rochkirstin Santos ayon kay ...

I think prices here are expensive! Whaha one mention of rice worth PHp 80 for simple taste turned me off. Anyway, other viands looked appealing.

Sumi Go ayon kay ...

Everything looks scrumptious! The restaurant name may come corny for others, but I actually like it. I have to say that I somehow agree with Rochkirstin. The P80 rice seems pretty pricey >.<
