Pagkaing Pinoy (Filipino Food) @ Dencio's Marikina

Marikina City, one of the most devastated areas when the typhoon Ondoy hit our country. It's so good to see that even with the devastation, many establishments rose up to challenge and operated once more.

We went to Marikina River Banks and saw the renovated Mall. After walking around and looking at the mini-auto show, we got hungry and we decided to eat in Dencio's, a restaurant serving mainly Filipino dishes.

What we ordered were:

Garlic Rice, In the vernacular, we call this Sinangag. We stir fry the rice with some toasted garlic. Garlic rice or sinangag in most Filipino homes is made from left over or cold rice. Mash the rice, toast some garlic and add the rice! It goes well with most viands and is usually served for breakfast.

This sisig is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. It's usually served as pica food with alcoholic beverage like beer. Typically this dish is made from deep fried pork jowls, but from what I can tell, Dencio's serve theirs with meat coming from a different part of the pig.

The one we had was the large serving, it looked so good and tasted even better! Use the usual seasoning along with Calamansi (Philippine lemon) and some chili sauce, and you will get a treat!

This serving came with vinegar as the dip. I can't say anything except it was excellent!

The service was good and fast. The place cozy.

In summation, the service, the place and the food gave us a good dining experience.
