Crispy goodness

We-ell, if you have to control your cholesterol levels, then this isn't quite good for you. Crispy Pata is another favorite Filipino dish. Pata is the Tagalog word for thigh, but the dish consists of a whole pork leg (bone, skin and knuckles included)—boiled or pressure-cooked, dried well and deep fried. Crunchy outside, tender inside, served with a dipping sauce made of vinegar and soy sauce. The only thing better than Crispy Pata? Boneless Crispy Pata, like this one. Parsley, spring onion and red onion garnish optional.

I love pork. A whole pork leg is a lot of eating. The photo makes it look good too.

Asks the mind:" Is it good?" - Says the heart:" No, but it makes you feel good."


Please have a good start into the new week.

I used to love crispy pata, before becoming pescotarian. I think the best one I've had was from Barrio Fiesta :)

I think I'd prefer this one - the Boneless Crispy! You've made it look mouth-watering. Pork is my downfall!

Have a great week!

I remember seeing a lot of pork in Manila! I think I probably saw a couple of Crispy Pata in the make :D

Misalyn said...

Yummy! am salivating hahaha! makes me think of buying "pata" tonight and will cook it tom. Hala bawal sa akin 'to, hypertensive ako.

Lovely presentation, and I suspect a "taste" might not do too much damage to your cholesterol levels -:) Steady diet, however, could well be deadly.

We've just added Manila to our list of cities to visit (we travel on our bellies)....

Halcyon said...

I'll pass on this dish. Although it does sound tasty in a certain way.
