KANIN CLUB is one of those restaurants that I would love to eat more of but can't. As much as I would like to include their sumptuous Sinigang Rice, Crispy Dinuguan, etc. etc. to my daily date regimen, their restaurant locations are not within our usual go-to areas that we often find ourselves just promising to go there but never do.
Lo and behold! When my nephew Chuckie was visiting the Philippines for a major food trip, he mentioned he was craving for some Crispy Pata, Kare Kare, and Dinuguan, that KANIN CLUB immediately came to mind! We were all tired and hungry from our hot day in ENCHANTED KINGDOM and there would be nothing more comforting than jamming up all these Filipino favorites down our throats. Great thing that there was a branch of KANIN CLUB on our way home that it was indeed a unanimous decision to have our dinner there.
KANIN CLUB again. FINALLY.
And all is great again in my hungry world.
He he he he he!
It was our first time in KANIN CLUB at Filinvest City and like its other branches, the place was packed!
We were about 10th in line but the little lords didn't mind. They were comfortably (and lazily) going on at the rocking chairs.
Of course, only until a Senior person comes by and need to sit down.
Service was very prompt and the accommodating maitre 'd was able to seat everyone in the waiting list pronto!
KANIN CLUB in Paseo de sta. Rosa, Laguna had that all Filipino look to it. The space may get a bit cramped but it will only make you drool more by eyeing the food at the next table. He he he he he!
Like what the Chinese Adonis did!
We got a cozy table by the wall.
Yup! Like what I said. A full house!
Little lord Andrei!

Veni, Vidi, Vici...
He he he he he!
Would you believe I was actually putting finger horns behind Chuckie's head there but his hair was so fluffy that the camera didn't catch it! Bummer!

Our stomachs were grinding our insides like crazy so my sister ordered KANIN CLUB's Hototai (P220.00) to sip something hot asap!
I'm usually very partial to cream based soups but this KANIN CLUB appetizer surely did not disappoint. It was packed with vegetables and seafood that made the soup all the more tasty!
I know what Mati was thinking then...
"GIMME MY SOUP NOW!!!"
Little Andrei was whimpering over something. I forgot what about but it's probably due to missing his naptime.
Chuckie, did I hear you say Crispy Pata (P430.00)?
Servings in KANIN CLUB could always feed a hungry army. And getting THIS for less than P500 is certainly a treat!
Of course, when you order Crispy Pata, KANIN CLUB'S Kare Kare (P350.00) shouldn't be far behind!
Vegetables were still crunchy and the hearty sauce made it all the more appetizing over rice.
OMIGERRD my 36-23-36 body is in trouble now!
A true-blue best seller in KANIN CLUB is their awesome Crispy Dinuguan (P260.00)! I'm not sure if they were the first to offer it but it is certainly one of the most popular in the Metro.
Imagine this earthy and delectable dark stew with crunchy pork bites! Truly WOW! It would certainly get you scooping up on a LOT of rice!
AND SPEAKING OF RICE...
When you're in KANIN CLUB, you should not miss ordering their creative takes on the simple rice. Among their selection, my favorite is the Sinangag na Sinigang (P220.00).
According to the menu, this dry and VERY flavorful take on Sinigang could feel only 2 people.
I DRAMATICALLY BEG TO DISAGREE HELLER!!! I think they got a sackful of rice and jammed it into a soup pot! Ha ha ha ha! This dish could definitely satisfy 4 people!
And wow! If you love Sinigang na Baboy, this would not just satisfy but it would get you delirious from bites after bites of the fried vegetables and soup infused rice!
This is certainly my favorite in KANIN CLUB and the one that I would NOT share with the other 3 people! Even if I can't finish it I'll take home the leftovers and live on it for another day! He he he he he.
ERICJAZ FOODIES with the little lords and some other people...
HA HA HA HA HA!
Yup! We're here in KANIN CLUB!
I finally got a serving of KANIN CLUB's Hototai Soup and it was still hot and nummity nummy!
Our table filled with food!
My finicky eater Andrei was finally eating and munching on a Crispy Pata skin.
I would've sucked on the bones of the Crispy Pata but somebody beat me to it already.
FINE! I'll just settle on a LOT of skin then!
My plate! My trying-to-diet-but-failing-a-bit KANIN CLUB plate!
Oh I really love the Sinangag na Sinigang!
And I'm sure it loves me back... He he he he!
Yes we WERE hungry but the food was so many that we were not able to finish everything!
We each only had one stomach to give to our country after all.
We asked Chuckie if he wanted some dessert but he just groaned happily and caressed his ice cold San Miguel beer. He he he he! That's my answer right there.
