The food I ate this day is named Lechon Paksiw on the menu, a very common and a popular Filipino food. Although the restaurant is tagged as ‘seafood restaurant,’ they also offer other food that are not really seafood like rice toppings.
The menu includes a cup of rice, a tea, one leaf of pechay (Chinese cabbage), a glass of water and a piece of bochee.
Cost: 120 pesos (2-3 dollars)
Honestly, I was surprised when I received the serving. It was too meager for the 120 pesos I paid! Compared with Mang Inasal’s servings (with unlimited rice), this one is so expensive. It is not practical when you are on a tight budget. Regret always comes at the end.
Fortune (Hong Kong) Restaurant
The restaurant has branches in Bataan, Bulacan, Pampanga, Tarlac and Pasay (and also international ones in China and Hong Kong). The Dagupan branch is located along AB Fernandez Avenue at the Metro Plaza.
I like the warmth of their staff and their dress. They look so oriental. Some also wear formal which looks very fine too. It seems like you’re in a safe good place.
I received a warm welcome here from a man about the age of 45. He joined me on my seat and gave me the menu. He asked me where I am. I said, “I am from Vigan.” Suddenly, he has been pointing one of the crews inside that she (the crew) wants to go in Vigan and she should come with me.
He also asked me if I am alone. Obviously, I was. Then he said he’ll accompany me although I knew it was a joke.
Although I wasn’t satisfied with the food that I paid, at least I learned something new. I learned to be practical in buying food. Indeed, experience is the best teacher.
