This is it. The best Pancit.
I’ve always been a fan of Pancit whether Bihon, Canton or Sotanghon. I though Chinese makes the best Pancit there is but I was wrong until I had one at Ka Tunying’s Cafe in Timog.
Located in front of GMA, at Caswynn Building, Timog, the place is easy to catch as it has a huge singnage of the name. Ambiance was homey too. When you enter, different kinds of breads are available as well as they are known to have a Bakery in Nueva Ecija.
For starters, we get to try their Cheese Bread. Soft dough with cheese toppings and cheese on the dough as well. This is perfect for your favorite spreads but even without it, it’s still delicious.
Ukoy: Traditional Filipino version of Shrimps Fritters with Kalabasa and dried Shmrimps.
I love the fact that it is made of Kalabasa. There’s small shrimps inside it and you can still taste it but there’s a bit of a sweetness to it because of Kalabasa. Dip it in vinegar for added flavor.
Bruce Tawilis: Fried cripsy Tawilis served with Vinegar.
So delicious. Fried to perfection with its batter for that crispy taste. Can’t help but dig in.
Inasar si Caesar Salad: Their own version of Caesar Salad with Traditional Chicken Inasal.
For you healthy people. They also have Caesar Salad with chicken strips. Yum!
Arroz Ala Tunying: Arroz Caldo with Boiled Egg and sliced Chicken Breast.
This dish tasted to good. The glutinous rice was boiled perfectly. It was so soft and so easy to eat. Chicken breast and egg added more flavor to it. I think Ka Tunying needs to advertise this more. Since Timog has a lot of bars in its area, this dish is perfect as a cure for hangover.
Cabanatuan Longsilog (Recado): An original from Nueva Ecija. Served with Longanisa, Eggs and Adobo Rice.
Surely, this dish will put a smile on your face and on your plate too. Look at how it was served. Its Adobo Rice was oozing with flavor. It’s like you actually have Adobo already. Longanisa has a garlicky flavor which what I love in Longanisa. You can ask them to cook the eggs the way you wanted.
May Asim pa Ako, Pero Sweet Naman – Escabeche Salmon Belly: Tender Salmon Belly strips fried and sauteed with butter, ginger and sesame seeds.
Salmon Belly fried to crisp. They already perfected how to fry dishes so well. Another block buster hit from their menu.
Pancit ni Nanay Benny: A special recipe of Ka Tunying’s Mother
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the best Pancit I’ve tasted. This has a generous amout of vegetables, pork, shrimp and a lot more. Just the noodles tasted to good. This definitely is on my top favorite Pancit in the Metro.
Tinapa Carbonara: Local version of Carbonara with Tinapa
I was expecting it to be more salty but it’s not. Probably their Tinapa wasn’t that salty enough.
Ka-Love-Asa Lasagna: No meat baked dish layered with Zucchini, Eggplant, Tomato Sauce, Cheese and lots of Kalabasa
This dish is again for health conscious. There’s no meat in here but you won’t be asking or looking for it anyway. This tasted sourly and creamily good and you will not feel any regret eating a lot as this is all vegetables.
Bakbakan Platter: Roasted Lechon Pork Belly, Fish Fillet and Salted Egg Rolls, Gising-gising with Rice
For those people who’s not on diet. Perfect combo meal for us! 😀
Love the taste of Fish with Salted Egg inside it making it taste more addicting.
For drinks, we’ve tried Tsoknut Frappe, Mochabayan Frappe and Maharlikape. All three tasted amazing.
They also served us with desserts. My favorite would be Biko Latik with Mango on top and Ube Macapuno. Turon with Tsoknut also tasted good.
Overall, Ka Tunying’s Cafe offers Traditional Filipino comfort food. Also, I didn’t know Ka Tunying was funny. Also, he does not know how to use Instagram much. 😀
With my fellow foodies. Here, you can definitely know what’s our verdict.
