More Pinoy food faves at Amber

I've been to Amber thrice this year. During the first time at the Tomas Morato store last April, I very much enjoyed their Pancit Malabon and pork barbecue (not to mention their very affordable prices!), that I included this very simple resto in my personal list of favorite Filipino food places. Last week, our family was at Amber-Kalaw in Manila after worship service at the Cathedral of Praise for my son's birthday lunch. Pancit Malabon, my Amber staple, was of course among our orders plus other dishes. We feasted on:

Pancit Malabon, P330. (good for 5 pax)

Pretty pancit! 

Doesn't that look sooo yummy?

Soy fried chicken, whole, P370.

Pork barbecue, P20 per stick.

Pork sisig, P140.

Pichi-pichi with cheese, P110 (20 pcs)

 Amber's Pancit Malabon was delish, as usual, and so was the barbecue and sisig. The soy fried chicken, however, was bland. The pichi-pichi, which is one of their best sellers, is not my favorite for nothing. It's yummy and perfect for dessert, but not too sweet as to overwhelm your taste buds. Would have been best with a cup of brewed coffee, but sadly, Amber does not serve it. Why don't they, and soon, please?

I've enjoyed food at Amber not only with my family but with good friends, too. Last July, one of my best buddies and his family were at Amber-Kalaw before Saturday worship 
and we ordered:

Cream of asparagus soup, P120.
Fried chicken wings, P190 (8 pcs). This is good!

Chicken Lollipop, P20 apiece.

Sotanghon Guisado, P65, solo. This is delicious.

Pancit Malabon, P65, solo

Pichi-pichi with cheese, P66 (12 pcs)
