Serye's Boneless Crispy Pata

After visiting the orchid show last Sunday, we had our dinner at the Serye Cafe Filipino which was also inside the Quezon Memorial Circle complex.  I like eating here because they serve good Filipino food and the prices are just right for the quality of food and service they provide.

The star of our lunch that day was the Boneless Crispy Pata.  Every Filipino knows what a crispy pata is.  It's a pig's front leg or pata deep fried in really hot oil until its skin turns crispy.  Many Pinoys have their own version of how to achieve this crispiness but we love this Filipino food to go along with our other favorite ulam and drinks.  Pinoy drinkers also love this food as pulutan for their beer.

What made Serye's crispy pata different though was it's completely deboned.  It was sliced evenly and each slice are as crispy as the others.  I like this food because it's so easy to eat and there's no need to take the meat from the bone.  It's also not as salty or over-priced as the crispy pata offered in other restaurants.  Priced at PhP130 per 100 grams (we got a 700 gram piece so go compute), it's quite pricey than your regular crispy pata. But for a unique eating experience, I'd say it's still reasonable.  It also went very well with the laing and brown rice we ordered.

We will order this again when we visit Serye.
