This pasta loads up on kare-kare and lechon kawali
Three favorites in one!
(SPOT.ph) Fast Filipino and Asian restaurant Coco Hut Fried Chicken and Fish has come up with a three-in-one way to comfort us. Their latest menu addition is—(drum roll, please)—Pasta with Kare-Kare and Lechon Kawali.
This is actually a variation of another new item, Lechon Kawali Kare-Kare (P255), but we like the carb component.
It's actually not that difficult to like, if you know what to expect. The pork belly is cooked crunchy to add a nice textural contrast to the pasta and the nutty sauce from the kare-kare reminds us of another classic—albeit not very local—dandan noodles, which is a Taiwanese-style noodle dish served with a peanut sauce.
Don't come in thinking it's going to taste like the usual tomato sauce-over-noodles version. This one is Pinoy all the way. Coco Hut has also come out with other similarly themed pasta dishes: Binagoongan (P255), Seafood Kare-Kare (P265), and Carbonara Longganisa (P255)
