Latin American Street Food
Inside A Mall
Street food is fun to eat but in a hot and humid country like the Philippines you can’t really enjoy it until it’s late in the afternoon or in the evening when it’s already sundown.
Brasas changed all of that. Located on the fifth floor of The Podium, this quaint little restaurant is worth a try no matter what time of day. The interiors try to mimic the street feel so you still get a bit of the vibe.
I was finally able to try it for a quick lunch recently. We had the Patacones (Php 140) as appetizers. One piece of these crispy chips topped with pulled pork and cheese is already very feeling so we were very careful not to stuff ourselves so much.
For the main course I had the Puerco Asado – Cuba (Php 240) which my friend described as “lechon kawali like” when I asked her to order me anything that is roasted meat. Since it’s slow cooked, this one was soft and easy to eat than the usual lechon kawali.
My friend also liked her order of Chicken Rice Platter (Php 180). Her only problem was that she could not finish all of it since they give out generous servings.
