Top notch Filipino Kamayan Cuisine

Kawali Filipino Kamayan Cuisine (Wan Chai)

When I saw this place listed on Openrice, I really wanted to go, it is interesting that this place has a Chinese name too!

Compared to my usual Flipino fare, the prices at this place are quite expensive.

In Wan Chai, there are now three places where you can get Flipino food.
Cinta J which is quite Chinese during lunch, while the new Cinta J Express was more authentic but only open during the evenings and Quezon which provides really cheap authentic Flipino food.

The decor of this place is green and vibrant.


After browsing the menu, they had steak sets and chicken but I wanted some real native dishes.

The a la carte menu seemed a better choice.


The good thing about this place is that the rice is unlimited and the food was so delicious that I had two plates of rice!

Chicken adobo:
Adobo is basically a vinegary sauce.
On first sight, it looked quite Chinese, it had lots of cracked black pepper.
The vinegar was quite strong but it made the chicken extremely appetizing.
Beneath the pieces of chicken, there were four chicken wings.

Dinuguan:
This is basically pork and offal cooked in spicy dark gravy of pig blood, garlic, chili, and vinegar.
There were pieces of beef stomach as well.
I really liked it and expected it to taste good, the porks blood was fresh and the sauce did not have a rancid smell or taste.
The pork in this dish was lean so there was not much oil compared to other Dinuguan dishes from other restaurants.

Luckily the rice is refillable so you can have as much as rice as you want!
