Famously known for their flavored Chicharon, Oinky’s Chicharon and Good Eats has been gaining popularity since it opened on April of 2014. It is strategically located just beside Xotic carwash where customers can easily hang out and eat Oinky’s delightful specialties. It is owned by Soguilon Foods Corporation; the company behind restaurants such as Garage 88 and The Ostrich Farm.
Oinky’s is a meager place but has a substantial amount of seating for people who want to have breakfast in this cozy place. Ms. Frances, Ms. Kristine’s business partner, shares with us that Oinky’s first started as a small stall in Katipunan which then later expanded as a full-grown restaurant serving local dishes.
It is a favorable coincidence to have a space just beside a carwash since Oinky’s became the “food hub” of people who are just waiting for their cars, who want to have a quick bite, and for people who are in need of a place nearby where there’s a good cup of coffee while they can also read the newspaper.
But why exactly focus on Chicharon? Well, Kristine tells us that Chicharon is one of her favorite snacks. “We only serve food that we love to eat.” And for her, Chicharon is one of them.
A well-loved snack in the Philippines, Oinky’s Chicharon is made from high quality pork skin, and contains ZERO preservatives. Its shelf life can last up to 20 days; unopened.
Served in charming, resealable packaging, Oinky’s Chicharon is fresh, tasty, and crispy from the first bite until the last.
Chicharon Laman in plain flavor is all kinds of RIGHT. It does not taste too salty, it is not too greasy, and its “chicharon laman” is not too thick and chunky that it overpowers the crispness of the pork skin. It is a perfect, light snack to be shared with friends and family.
