I treated our party of 10 to lunch at Fortune (Hong Kong) Seafood Restaurant in Malolos, Bulacan during our stay. Located on a business strip right off of the MacArthur Highway it is sandwiched between a couple of larger, flashier chain restaurants. Fortune touts itself as being one of those ‘forreal’ Chinese joints. I’m not Chinese so I can’t tell you how authentic it is, but for what it’s worth the meal was pretty darn good. Instead of pouring over the menu we ordered a family meal that set me back about USD 60.
Yay! I’m older! It was my birthday last week and I celebrated with Filipino food, karaoke, drinks and dancing (in that order).
First, the co-workers surprised me with a cake from Goldilocks. (Isn’t that nice that they also celebrate my Filipino-ness?) To make it extra special they made the ultimate no-no and spelled my name wrong. Yes, on purpose. I feel the love!
Then I dragged everyone to Patio Filipino where we ordered enough food to feed me until my next birthday. In addition to the kare-kare and sinigang that I’ve already featured on the blog. We also ordered gambas al ajillo – shrimp in oil, garlic, and paprika. It was shockingly bright but not overly spicy and the shrimp was cooked perfectly.
