This modest establishment attached to a Philippine grocery offers a set-price meal of $5.25 that includes two scoops of creamy rice and your choice of two main dishes. Go for the mutton and vegetables in an orange-tinged peanut sauce, or the chicken cooked in a marinade of black pepper and white vinegar, or even the pork chunks in pig-blood gravy. But neither are vegetables left outathereas a sautA(c) of glistening long beans, and a stew mixing turtle beans and diced pork. Snacking opportunities include braided-spine empanadas and fried spring rolls, demonstrating Spanish and Chinese influences.
