Unlike the usual dinuguan, Caffe La Tea's version is kinda dry with the pork blood covering the hot rice and the pork meat fried to crispiness. The crunch of the blistered pork skin is just heaven. So scrumptious and filling, this viand is best paired with hot steamed rice and should be consumed ASAP to savor, again, the crispiness.
Thanks to the kind invitation of OpenRice PH, this mama was able to uncover a hidden gem just 30 minutes away from home, and which she believes her boys would love too.
Caffe La Tea has a cozy neighborhood cafe set up but offers more than one could imagine. Conceptualized to offer the best of both worlds, Caffe La Tea has more than just milk tea and coffee; it has almost all the basic comfort food offerings and even classic lutong bahay in its menu. Yes! The cafe has appetizers, salad, pasta, rice meals, desserts, coffee, and milk tea. They even have free WiFi for customers used to being online all the time and expect an internet connection wherever they go.
Almost all its rice meals are less than P100.00. The most expensive is the grilled liempo and salted egg at P109.00.
Among the many rice meals served to us, my top choice is the Crispy Dinuguan followed by Cabsy Longganisa. Both are at P89.00 per serving.
