(SPOT.ph) If there’s a real food OTP, it would have to be—surprise—pares. Yes, we’re talking about the filling, no-fuss meal often served in roadside eateries and holes-in-the-wall in the Metro. It’s a winning tandem—you have fried rice and a beef stew that usually comes with both brisket chunks and litid or ligaments. If you’re a fan of pares but would like to enjoy it in a different way, you might want to check out Peñafiel’s take on the beloved meal with their Birria Queso Pares (P175).
Each piece is filled with stewed beef brisket and cheese, as well as caramelized onions, spring onions and red onions fried in beef fat. All these are enveloped in a crispy taco shell with pares broth for dipping—and chili oil, too, if you want a spicy kick. The aroma of the broth alone takes us back to the days when we could chill out at eateries serving this meal after a long day at work, or scarf down some tasty eats to fuel up after drinking one too many before finally calling it a night.
But if you want to get some tacos for sharing—or you just want to taste a bit of everything in one go, you can get their Trio Sampler (P230) or Six-Pack Sampler (P440), which has the following selection of soft tacos: Beef Tapa, or cured beef sirloin topped with garlic chips; Pork Sisig, which has grilled pork maskara topped with onions, chilis, and pork rind; and Chicken Adobo, which has pulled chicken topped with garlic chips and crispy chicken skin. All tacos are served with salsa, aioli, calamansi, and atchara. You can also get any of those in Duo, Trio, and Six-Pack sets.
They serve tacos from Tuesday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. To place your orders, send a text message, Viber, or Whatsapp to 0917-303-3766 with your name, contact number, address, e-mail address, and time of pick-up and delivery. Once your order is confirmed, you can pay via GCash or BPI bank transfer.
Peñafiel’s is a start-up home-based food delivery service which primarily sells Fil-Mex tacos. They started their business during the enhanced community quarantine and initially had chicken wings, baked macaroni, and traditional fried chicken on their lineup.
Want to assemble your own tacos instead? There are places that deliver taco kits in the Metro. Most of these sellers usually include the tortilla wraps, fillings, sauces, and all other condiments you need to prepare your own taco.
