*** Conching is now Erlinda's Filipino Cuisine & Ice Cream Parlor
"It's the most unhealthiest time of the year......"
Or something like that. At least that's the tune going through my head while crunching away on the deep fried chicken skin portion of my dinner from Conching's Cafe:
I ended up getting dinner here after spotting Sisig....... which isn't always available from the steam table at Conching.
Strangely, after looking through my posts I noticed that I've never done a post on Conching's......... even though we've been there a number of times. The only thing I found was a post which included the sisig which I've always thought was among the best. This wasn't quite as good....falling a bit short on the vinegar. It's still better than most.....
Still...... fried chicken skin and sisig...... I think I'll be eating a bunch of salads after the New Year.
Oh, and when you visit Conching's, you can't forget the ice cream...... Ube and Avocado used to be the Missus's favorite (I like Jackfruit)...... but those have been replaced by......
Corn and Cheese.... yep, corn and cheese. Well, cheddar cheese is what they told the Missus. It's not what you think. It's not too sweet, but rich and creamy.... and no, there really isn't a big cheese flavor....perhaps something closer to a light cream cheese?
While waiting for Her Corn and Cheese ice cream, a Young Lady was asking a boy, possibly her son what flavor he wanted. Standing tippy toe, the boy exclaimed, "I want chocolate!" The woman smiled and looked down at the child and told him, "you can have chocolate anywhere, but when you're here you need to try something new and different!" Amen, lady, amen......
