Sunday I craved for pinoy food, pinoy inasal food.
I heard it before that there is Jollibee and Mang Inasal at Lau Pa Sat. I did not pay attention then since I don't really believe there is one, and besides I was partial to local food then and even now. Singapore is really a food haven for it's variety of choices anywhere you go.
So last Sunday I went to Lau Pa Sat in search for the filipino food. Lau Pa Sat is a historic building here, which used to be a marketplace way back and turn into a food center now. It is a cast-iron structure, think of San Sebastian Church and the used to be train station in Tutuban.
Yes there is chicken inasal here, and it was closed. Yes it is called Mack's Chicken Inasal Atbp and not Mang Inasal. This the reason why I came here. Because back home Mang Inasal chicken is my favorite. I was disappointed as I did not know they were closed on Sundays but will come back here to check the food.
On another wing of the food center is Jolly V. Hahah I was doped, really all along I was thinking of the real thing back home. Oh yes, they offer the same food. Chicken joy, burger steak which the one I ordered. Well it is close to the real thing tastewise so I think.
Notice the crowd? Yes they are kabayans and they came here for the pinoy food.
As I am not happy of what I am having, I end up ordering chili crab on the opposite malay food stall, and boy the best chili crab I had tried so far.
Coffee somewhere, and then time to go home.
