Today I had lunch (again) at Lutong Pinoy, an authentic Filipino restaurant located at 10 Kenway Road, Earl’s Court, London SW5 0RR. I finally got to meet Michael, Gaby’s boyfriend! I am definitely looking forward to (hopefully) visiting the Czech Republic during my time at Florence, especially with all the tips the two were giving me.
For lunch Gaby and I decided to split our main courses again. We decided on inihaw na liempo (marinated grilled pork belly served with vinegar) and adobo (chicken cooked in vinegar, garlic, soya sauce & spices), and we each got a plate of garlic rice.
Michael ended up trying an order of sisig (diced mixed pork and spices and chili served on a hotplate). For dessert Gaby and I were very happy to order the Mix Filipino Ice Cream – we both chose ube (purple yam), macapuno (coconut), and mango flavored ice cream.
The lunch was great and I’m glad to have met Michael before he had to head back. I can’t wait to have more meet-ups with people living and/or studying in Europe, especially people who study in the UK!
