Sizzling Ostrich ala Pobre
Last January 9, 2010, i attended a friend's wedding in Cagayan de Oro City. MyGF and her mother had their hair and make-up done, me and myGF's dad is in their car cruising around the city to get his Barong (Filipinos most formal male garment) we came across to this one very inviting billboard sign.
i immediately forgot my manners in exclaiming "wow! they serve ostrich, i want to try that". her dad agreed and promised "you want that? tomorrow lets have our dinner there".
the next day, true to his words, her dad instructed myGF for us to meet them in Cusina de Oro after their tennis game. me and my GF had our mall tour first then we proceeded to the said resto and before we come inside, i took that photo.
for the next 5 weeks starting June 02, 2010 ill be sharing to you our meals on this resto. next week for the last installment, ill share my GF's dad's yummy dessert. for now, ill share my meal.
fourth dish is 'Sizzling Ostrich ala Pobre'. the reason why we ate here in Cusina de Oro. sorry for a low quality photo. as i viewed it on my camera, it looks good but when i uploaded it on the PC this is the result. the veggies got all the pampering of clarity.
'ala pobre' means "simple sauce'. commonly, its sauce is like a runny gravy or a runny oyster sauce. as i said last week ill feature what i ordered in this resto and its big than its seems. we are about 6 in the group and we all had a filling share. its priced per plate and per plate has a serving of buttered veggies. Since its for the group, again, im too shy to take its photo for a longer period. even thou that they are willing for me to take pictures and to take time, still the shyness in me. besides, this dish should not sit on its plate, its should be on our tummies where it really belong =))
as for the taste, many says its like chicken since its a poultry meat but for what i tasted is its like beef. its similar to ' bistek tagalog'. the marinade or seasonings or the way it cooked masked the true taste of poultry. the best way to describe it is by saying 'ill definitely come again'.
