It is my mom's 62nd birthday today. I cooked some spaghetti pasta to have something to celebrate it with. In three days we will be celebrating also my niece's birthday which i will post later on.

I've been working (yayy! which is good somehow) and last night had a dinner at Patio de Conchita, Intramuros. Too bad it didn't cross my mind to take some snap of the food we had before finishing them up. Anyways, it's my first time on this place. Used to be a place where wedding functions held. Since it is along one of the streets of Intramuros, it got the old Spanish touch in its exterior and interior. It serves local dishes and they got wide range of varieties to choose from. Yesterday, cuz ordered one specialty of the house which is the Kalderetang Kambing (Goat Caldereta). Meat was so tender and the sauce so rich and spicy. Beef Caldereta is one of my favorite local dishes as well. It's never too late i took some shots before we leave.

Crispy Pata, Lechon Kawali and grilled fish slices by the counter

The rich thick sauce of the Kalderetang Kambing

Chilis, Peppers, Onion slices and vinegar mix sauce
from the Kilawin na Tanigue
(what's left of it)

The place is where drinkers hang out as well. Almost all the dishes there were "beer match" recipes. Let me remember what i saw there by the counter beside the ones i already mentioned above: stuffed squid, grilled fish, abobong kambing, prawns and more.

Rating for the food is ok but the place needs redecoration, i mean off with the Christmas decors. I know the place supposed to be looking old but being outdated with the season is another thing. Other places preparing for valentine and yet your tree is still up. Let's put up hearts all over..Let's go!
