Hot Off the Stove: Nico’s Restaurant (Slaughter Compound)

Entrees!  Get your entrees!  Fresh hot entrees!

Get your entrees hot off the stove (or off the grill) at Nico’s Restaurant, one of the four or five places that you could go to grab some good eats at the slaughter compound.

Race and I planned ahead for this.  We decided that it was a good move to set out early – 7ish, so that we could arrive at the compound just when the dishes were finished cooking.  What was supposed to be a lunch spread turned into breakfast *hihi.  Looking at the choices on the menu, we settled on dinakdakan/grilled pig’s parts, sinanglao/boiled beef brisket and innards soup and inihaw na baboy/inihaw na liempo/grilled pork with blood sauce.

While waiting for our orders, I entertained myself with the surroundings.  Not bad!  They’ve got their setup down – a clean and simple establishment.  \m/  (I noticed we were wearing the same color scheme as the place. *heeee Models of Nico’s restaurant! =b)

In just a few minutes, our orders came out one after the other.  I was thrilled with the look of the sinanglao with all its contents peeking over the broth.  I quickly took a sip.  Reminder for you if you eat sinanglao at this eatery:  Be sure to move your spoon around in the bowl else all you’ll get is the oil (ohhhhh, heart stopping *teehee).  It wasn’t as sour as we had it in another eatery but I still got a spoonful of flavor.  (We can always come back and get sinampalukang kambing/goat meat in tamarind soup next time.)  You can really taste how they didn’t scrimp on the best ingredients here.  *tingle tingle (“,)

I love dinakdakan!  I’m always thrilled about holidays and birthdays at home because there’s sure to be Tupperware containers full of dinakdakan somewhere.  Whenever I eat out and they have this on their menu, I place an order for it.  Not many versions really measure up to what my uncle makes, though.  But the slaughter house dinakdakan came pretty close.  Oh man, that was delish!

Trying out the grilled pork, the regular soy and calamansi juice dip was put out of commission in favor of the blood sauce.  Pour a little bit of vinegar into it, dip the grilled pork slices in and you have dinuguang inihaw.  What a treat!

Having finished the broth from the sinanglao, Race called the attendant over to ask for more.  I love how it’s not an issue for them to give you more.  The bowl came back filled to the brim and the best thing about it is it’s free!  Hooray for Nico’s!

We spent almost P300 for this huge meal (with an identity crisis – lunch food turned breakfast food =b) and we still had lots leftover for takeout.  That’s going to be for lunch and yes, you know it; my furry loved ones will also get a taste of the sinanglao.
