Grace the Comforts of Naimas - A Taste of Home


I was intrigued by the fact that Naimas is referred to as a taste of home. It turns out as I walked in, I felt right at home with the homey ambiance, the excellent service and of course the delicious food. I set the call time at 5 PM but most of the bloggers arrived around 6 PM because they set their watches to Filipino time. We were at a Filipino restaurant after all!


Pancit Canton (P250)

As a Filipino-Chinese guy, I love pancit so I was happy as a chinky-eyed bear when the Pancit Canton came out. I may be biased when I say it is my favorite out of all the ones served especially since it came with lechon kawali.


 Adobong Baboy Ramo (P320)


 Pinatisang Baka (P340)

If there's one thing present in any Filipino fiesta, it is meat. The Adobong Baboy Ramo, Pinatisang Baka and Sinampalukang Kambing were meaty dishes that give great meaning to the term "main course". They are definitely best eaten with lots of rice so I must say good luck to the people who try to avoid rice when they choose to eat those dishes.


 Adobong Hipon sa Aligue (P340)

I suggest providing gloves for those who would not want to get their hands dirty since you have to use your hands to eat the Adobong Hipon sa Aligue. It was nicely cooked as it was not that oily as you'd expect.


 Gisaeng Balut (P220)

Balut is a dish that you would recommend to tourists who come to the country but locals rarely eat it themselves. That changed tonight when we were served the aforementioned. There was a saying that it was hard to eat a whole balut to yourself and they were right. I tried doing it but failed miserably.
 

 Gising-gising (P220)

I love vegetables so it was great that Gising-gising arrived to balance with the meat dishes. I must admit that I love the fact that it is simmered in coconut oil.


 Sizzling Litid (P250)

One look at the Sizzling Litid and you already know what it is all about. I'm not a fan of litid though as it is best to go along with meat and not as a stand alone dish.


 Sinampalukang Kambing (P300)



 Turon na Saba (P110)

 
Halo-halo (P180)

As always, we ended the night with a couple of desserts. We initially had a hard time dividing the Halo-halo among the 9 of us but we managed.

The Gisaeng Balut really gets me curious about its taste.
