Hungry Ape Menu
Started as a food stall, Hungry Ape is always a crowd favorite in every food festival.
They used to serve South American food at weekend markets and has expanded their dishes to include Filipino dishes with a twist.
So we will start by saying we love everything on their menu — no kidding and nope we are not paid to do this.
So here is a run down of our favorites from their menu.
Adobo sa Gata
This Filipino comfort food with a twist was a huge hit!
The rich gata paired with the tender meat is uhhhh-mazing.
Speaking of food with a twist, the Baka Tula-sog is a must try.
This juicy beef is cooked with native cacao!
An unusual combination of flavors married to form an unforgettable dish.
You seriously won’t regret having this on your table.
Pork Belly ala Moe
Just when I though this was just another pork belly — Pork Belly ala Moe blew me away!
This truly deserves to carry the name of the chef and owner Moe.
Smoked Bangus Pasta
We are not a huge fan of pasta but this one is an exception.
Pulled Pork Empanada
We love pulled pork and having it in an empanada just made eating it 10x more enjoyable!
This creamy spinach empanada is a delight to have in our mouth.
Make sure to pair it with their salsa for a tangy kick.
If you want to make our day, just bring blueberries.
And these blueberry empanadas have just the right sweetness to brighten up any gloomy day.
Here’s the rest of their menu
