I'm sure you know what this recipe called. Eherm! My very own version of Crispy Pata. Yes Crispy Pata is one of the popular Philippine Delicacy where you can order mostly In different Resto Bar. Crispy Pata is on top of my list whenever we eat out or whenever I'll be celebrating my birthday with my friends. I used to get Fiesta order which include Crispy Pata with cracklings side dish, Sinigang na Hipon or Bulalo, Rice, T-Bone Steak, Tempura, iced Tea, leche Plan and other dish included in the package.Sorry, I failed to remember some of it but I remember asking for Sisig or Chicharong bulaklak if me and my friends wants to stay longer with some bottle of San Mig Lights while singing in the centralized videoke.
Anyway, when Jamie first visited me in the Philippines, he is as thin as stickman. But I introduced him to Crispy Pata and Lechong manok. Since then, he never failed to ask for a whole crispy pata ( one big pork leg ) which he always eat by himself. He loves the dipping sauce of it. Made out of soy sauce, calamansi, red chilli pepper, chopped onion and black pepper! Hmmmm... yummy! Yesterday, Jamie did request the meal. I finally found a pork shank that I can use to make this meal. In fairness he liked it. he said,
" How can we afford to go back to UK"
I'm puzzled with him at first because I can't get what he wants to say. He repeat it once again and told me its because he feels like we're in the Philippines eating his favorite Crispy pata. He then told me afterwards that I can't always make the meal though the pork shank is really cheap at a price of 1.50 Pounds, he's scared he might get hi-blood or heart problem eating too much pork. As if! He didn't realize that when he's in the Philippines. Anyway, I'm just happy that I did this small request my hubby wants me to make for him. Its a little surprise but he's chuffed with it.
