KANIN Club through the years…
“When I count my blessings, I count them twice.”
Kanin Club is an authentic (with a twist) Filipino restaurant which have been delighting their customers (including myself) for the past years. We have been dining at their branch at Paseo de Sta. Rosa (Sta. Rosa, Laguna) because it is my boss’ favorite, she particularly recommends the crispy “dinuguan” (it’s deep-fried pork crisp enough set in a semi-dry stew of pork blood). It is a Filipino staple food and is best with “puto” (rice cake). I personally like it with Puto Binan.
I would have to recommend the “Turon CK”. I have been ordering it through the years and it’s still the same since the last time I tried it last month.
I don’t know why my college besties always make me choose where to dine when we find time to meet up. The two of them will first figure out the location and they’ll let me choose where to dine in that specific location. This time, they decided to meet up at Westgate Center in Alabang. It is a small village where an array of retail shops from dining, leisure, auto, wellness and even sports were lined-up. Even my most favorite restaurant: “Neil’s” is fiercely standing there.
So, I instantly thought of Kanin Club. =)
By the way, “kanin” is a Filipino term for cooked/ steamed rice.
We seldom see each other, maybe just twice or thrice a year, but each time we meet, it’s just love and happiness. And let me add lots of laughter and food too.
Here’s what we had then:
– That famous crispy dinuguan
– Crispy liempo
– Green mango and bagoong (local shrimp paste)
– Bagoong rice
– Kare-kare (It comes in three variants: seafood, ox tripe or pork legs)
We chose pork legs. Mhai doesn’t like the ox tripe. Pam and I okayed all three.
And for our dessert:
– Turon KC
So they were asking how many times do we need to stay in the tread mill just to burn these out? And Pam was saying we all need to indulge sometimes and ended it with: “I’m actually heading to Gold’s later.” Ahahaha!
Because if you look at our spread, they’re all killers!
It’s not an everyday thing though she said. And I agreed since it was also the same thing that my doctor told me last year. But when I was about to leave her office, she left me with: “Just make sure to always count the fats and calories okay!” with a naughty grin.
All three of us gained a little weight from the previous years and we didn’t mind at all. #sizedoesntmatter
We top it off with this sweet indulgence.
I’ve been meaning to ask what KC stands for. Then, it occurred to me, since this is their original recipe, KC stands for Kanin Club. Lol!
Until our next meet-up.
Kanin Club has branches in the following areas: U.P. Ayala land Techno-hub, Ayala Triangle Gardens, Paseo, Sta. Rosa, Greenfield district and QC.
Try Kanin Club, you’ll love it there. =)
