Kumare (Re-visit)- Yummy Yummy In My Tummy

This is a revisit post on Kumare in Richmond which is my
favourite Filipino restaurant. I reviewed Kumare a while ago and surprisingly
it was one of the first posts Iโ€™ve ever written on my blog (
check it out here).

I noticed a few new items on their menu but unfortunately we
didnโ€™t order any this time.

These desserts look a little carb heavy, donโ€™t they? But I
bet they are tasty. ๐Ÿ˜›

We ordered a Large
Garlic Rice ($4.00)
to share and it was actually enough rice for the five
of us. I highly recommend the java rice as well if you like flavourful rice.

Honestly, I donโ€™t remember where I heard it from, but someone
credible told me that the
was good. Dinuguan is pork blood stew and when I suggested it, half
the table went โ€œEwww!!โ€. However, we somehow ended up ordering it which was
perfect because I was very excited to try it! I love eating innards. When it
comes to animals, Iโ€™m a โ€˜eat-every-part-of-the-animal-or-else-donโ€™t-kill-itโ€
type of person. Everyone who tried this thought it was surprisingly good and
not repulsive at all.

The Sizzling Pork
Sisig ($8.00)
is always a must have whenever my friends and I go to Kumare.
It contained minced pork served on a hot plate with an egg cracked on top. The
word pork here is used very loosely though as it not only contains the meat,
but also snout, ear, guts…etc. Awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

Their BBQ Chicken ($3.75)
and BBQ Pork ($3.25) skewers are
delicious and always grilled perfectly.

In our attempt to get some veggies into our diet, we ordered
Laing ($8.00) which are taro
leaves cooked in spicy coconut milk. The closest thing I can relate this to is
creamed spinach but it honestly tastes completely different. It was
delightfully creamy and goes so well with rice. Love <3

Last was the Lechon
Kawali ($8.00)
and it was nothing short of the spectacular deep fried fat I
envisioned. It tastes like โ€œsiu yokโ€ which is roasted pork but instead it is
deep fried. This is an heavy dish so I recommend sharing this with many people.

The meat was pretty tender, mostly because it was
surrounded by so much fat.
