Someone once told me about a place that sold corned beef sinigang. So a couple days ago, I remembered about that recommendation, but forgot the name of the place. I scoured through Facebook, and Google. I must say, my Google game is non-existent. 128514 It took quite some time to finding it on the net.

Anyway...

Lovers in Pares is a budget-friendly restaurant that differs from many food spots that caters to students. They do away with the "normal" student meals by adding their own flare to traditional dishes. In their menu, they have dishes like ox brain, horse tapa, and others that are for food adventurers.

This this was my first time going, I ordered what was recommended to me--corned beef sinigang (₱70). I, too also ordered Singaporean beef stir fry (₱60). (Both dishes comes with a cup of rice.)

Upon receiving the sinigang, I was a little bummed that the corned beef used was canned. I was expecting a traditionally made corned beef (brisket). Then I realized that if it were home made, it would be more expensive, and wouldn't be affordable to some students.

I very much liked the soup that was used! You can taste that the broth was not made with sinigang mix. You can taste the sourness from the tamarind and the tomatoes. The veggies were well cooked at the same time kept its crispness. The beef itself was good. I wouldn't expect the saltiness of the corned beef would work very well with the sourness of the soup.

The Singaporean beef stir fry came with an omelette. The slices of beef were very tender, and sweet. It's reminiscent of tocino. I would have loved if the beef were a bit spicy, by adding dried birds-eye chili. 128513 The omelette goes well with the beef, but I feel that the omelette was a little oily. Altogether, it was a good meal.

I truly enjoyed this place. Next time around, I will definitely try their ox brain dishes, and possibly their horse tapa.

Happy Eating!!!
