Foodgasm episode 6: Ninang Bokk’s birthday @ Jay-J’s Inasal (Ortigas)

Quite successful bokeh?

I just noticed that I know a lot of people who celebrate their birthdays on May, including my mom (see Foodgasm episode 5). This week, one of my mom’s closest friends celebrated her birthday. Hello ninang Bokk! πŸ™‚ Tita Dudut planned a surprise for her, which is our presence during her birthday celebration. And yes, tita Dudut was successful in surprising her after six years. Congrats tita Dudut! πŸ˜€

The birthday girl!

Moving on to the dinner, we had the celebration at Jay-J’s Inasal located at Ortigas Home Depot. All of their dishes were really delicious. I was expecting it to be expensive but when I looked up the menu in their website, it turns out that the price was just right. All dishes were affordable, including the crispy pata which was soooooo delicioso! Time to make you, readers, crave for their food. πŸ˜‰

Pork Sisig (PhP170)
Calamares (PhP199)
Molo Soup (PhP110)
Crispy Pata (PhP425)

Pinakbet (PhP140)
Bibingka (PhP100)

The most memorable dishes for the night were pork sisig and crispy pata! Their pork sisig was really good. Everything was well done and you won’t be able to tell that you’re eating pig head and liver. :> As for the crispy pata, I do not eat pork skin but my sister insisted that it was really crispy so I gave it a try. Thank you Chippy for convincing me because the dish really stayed true to its name, especially the crispy part. Both are Filipino dishes and for those who haven’t tried these, I suggest that you do so and the best place to start it is at Jay-J’s Inasal. πŸ˜‰

Besides ninang Bokk’s high school friends, her college friends were also there so there were quite a Β number of people in the venue. πŸ™‚

Happy birthday ninang Bokk! Cheers to a longer, healthier, and more prosperous life. πŸ˜€
