I’m sure that seafood lovers will definitely love this spicy flavored meaty prawn salted egg. Guys, you need a plenty of rice for this. This Prawn was coated with a heavenly sauce made with salted egg, and it was simply divine. I love how do they transform it from classic Filipino delicacy into a something modern Filipino cuisine that makes it so special.

The grainy texture is a result of the fusion of prawn and the salted egg yolk. The finger licking large prawn were tasty, complementing the juicy sauce perfectly and it is only cost ₱ 350.00 and it will serve up to 2-3 persons. If you’re planning to visit Rekado, make sure that Prawn Salted Egg is on your list.

This specialty of Rekado should be in the top of the list of the best Crispy Pork Binagoongan in town. I love the distinct scent and a strong sweet and spicy taste plus the crunchy texture of the crisp-fried pork that dressed with bagoong sauce. The smell will really make you hungry.  The delicious taste of their bagoong leaves a lasting impression for me, one of the best crispy pork binagoongan I’ve ever tasted that’s why it is one of the best sellers on their menu. Aside from the luscious taste, it is also affordable because it cost ₱ 220.00 only and will serve up to two to three(2-3) persons.

Honestly, I can’t figure out the right word how do I describe how satisfying it is. So if you want to experience it on your own, what are you waiting for? REKADO will surely feed your hungry tummy with their modern Filipino delicacies!

2. The Tender Boneless Crispy Pata 

Crispy pata is one of the all-time Filipino favorite dishes and it’s usually served on special occasions, but here in REKADO, I think no need to wait for special occasions, because in REKADO, every day is already special.

Crispy pata is the best, but boneless crispy pata? oh, that was awesome. This massive crispy pata is also on the list of their best seller.

Why Rekado’s boneless crispy pata is the best pata?

The Rekado’s boneless crispy pata is so tender unlike other pata that I’ve tried before is grisly. The sprinkled chicharron on top that adds additional flavors comes with a special sweet and sour soy sauce or they simply call it a pata sauce, So perfect with a pure meat of fried pork shank. This boneless crispy pata cost ₱ 510.00 only, the serving is good for 3-4 persons. You can do some calculation on how much you will save if you order boneless crispy pata. This is best served for a big group of friends or family.
