The Weird, The Lovely and The Delicious at Ramos Kambingan (Slaughter Compound)

As I have mentioned before, there are quite a few eateries located out in Slaughter Compound (something like seven or eight stalls, not just five *hihi).  With one place tried and blogged about, it wouldn’t be fair if the others are left in the background. So let’s look closely at another place where to eat in Baguio that’s standing shoulder  to shoulder with Nico’s Restaurant.

Let’s give a warm welcome to Ramos Kambingan and Seafood House! =D

The way it works eating at this particular section of town is that, once you set foot into the food establishments’ lot, the guys grilling meats or stirring broth simmering in cauldrons (Warlocks? Not quite *hee) in front of the stores call you over. It’s eeni meeni miny mo for Race and me (and it will be the same for you too if you choose to have a meal at the compound =b). We decided to go with the first carinderia on the bloc – the systematic and easy route. =D

The selection at Ramos Kambingan …

Unlike Nico’s, there were chafing dishes of viands already laid out at the Ramos carinderia.  Although there were only a handful, we had a fine time picking what to eat.  And then, my eyes fell on this particular viand.

The Weird:

What is that?!

The first thing that came into my mind was … zombie food? They did look a bit like brains. *heehaha (What is it with me and preternatural creatures today? =D)

Race however, was no stranger to this particular dish.  (Zombie? *snickers)  He ordered one plate of it in a snap.  Secretly, I was glad that I was soon going to know what this brainy looking thing was all about. (About to turn? =)))

Meanwhile, we took a seat at one of the tables outside, in front of the display of Ramos’ food (and the tank full of catfish … get them fresh!)  Our attendant then brought us our little bowl of starters.

An all too familiar bowl of starters  =)

That, it seemed, wasn’t enough (size and flavor wise) and I still went looking for something soupy.  Race inquired about their soupy stuff, whether they had bulalo or sinigang, and our attendant told us of the things that weren’t on display.  (Note to you when you eat at this food establishment: Ask for what else they’ve got stashed in the kitchen. ^^,) Sinampalukang kambing/goat in tamarid broth was our soup for the day.

Sinampalukang kambing (Ramos version). Mild tamarind flavors in comparison to Tabligan’s.

While we enjoyed our soup, we continued to look at the entrees that were available. The pinakbet caught our attention and as we didn’t get anything veggie yet, we decided to get one order.

The Lovely:

Isn’t it lovely? (in singsong Stevie Wonder style)

The-Lovely ^^,

Yes, I know, it’s just pinakbet but look at all those colors! =) It was eye candy as well as … mouth candy (?) *snickers.

Crunchy flavorful vegetables, my brother would love this. He likes his veggies not beaten down to pulps, so to speak with the cooking. =D

Then the mystery dish was delivered to our table. It didn’t look like brains anymore. It’s called silet as Race said, Ilocano word for intestines. It brought up images of Axe’s lumi, fried with onions and leeks in its own fatty juices.  My, were these chopped up pieces of guts tasty! (“,)

Silet/intestines … a little bit more crispy fried and they’d be chicharon. Pass the vinegar, please. Weee!
