Review: Pinac, UP Town Center

As I write this review for Pinac, I’m actually craving for Crispy Pata. #SelfControl ๐Ÿ˜‚

Located in UP Town, Pinac offers a variety of Filipino Capampangan dishes that for sure you wanna try. Let’s start our dining adventure so that you’ll understand why.

Sisig Pizza (P245) is delish. Thin and crispy tortilla topped with green bell peppers and drizzled with mayo. I think, it will be better if the meat is a bit smaller.

Crispy Hito Balls, Mustasa and Buro (235) is my favorite. Angel said that the fun way of eating it is to dip the catfish balls in buro (fermented fish) then wrap it in mustard leaves. For the record, this is the only time I enjoyed eating catfish and fermented fish. I liked their fermented fish because it doesn’t have any disgusting smell compared to others.

Baked Oysters with Crispy Kangkong (235) is so yummy, cheesy and creamy! However, the kangkong is not that crispy. But if you love oyster and cheese, I really recommend this!
image

Deep Fried Chicken Skin with Chips (325) is crispy and not that greasy than I expected. Man, this is quite addicting. You’ll have to master self-control here.

You can never go wrong with Pinac’s Crispy Pata (645). Pork knuckle poached in aromatics for six hours then deep fried to crispy perfection as they described it. I rarely eat Crispy Pata because of the bad experience I had from the other restaurant. But this one is an exception. Exception! Exception! It now reminds me of the song The Only Exception, an ost for Twilight. If Bella and Edward tried Pinac’s Crispy Pata, they will understand.

Beef Kare Kare (P205 solo) is palatable. The sauce is creamy and thick compared to other. As per Angel, it is because of the glutinous rice and peanut butter.

Overload Pinoy Paella (645) is not your ordinary Paella. Pinac’s version is a bit sweet and literally overload with shrimp, pork, egg, etc.

Salted Egg Paro (395) is something new for me. Shie Captures tip: the lemon is not just there as a garnish, you have to squeeze it so that it will balance the saltiness of the egg and gives a bit of tangy flavor.

Time to bring your dessert spoon!
Flat Top Smores (255) is so delicious!

Puto Bumbong with Coconut Sugar (135) is flavorful. You can actually taste the halaya ube compared to the normal Puto Bumbong. Pinac’s version is better!

Lastly, we had Mango Panna Cotta with Turon (155).

Get full and satisfy your Filipino cravings in Pinac. And oh, the ambiance is good too!
