As we continue to fill up our tummies for KAPITrip, Maloushky and I ventured to Gastropub. It had around 12 stalls, restos not found elsewhere. It is a much better version of Mercato for sure.

Para is in a jeepney form serving Filipino inspired sandwiches. We had Double Adobo. It’s creative in paper. It has Chicken Adobo with Pork Adobo floss. It also has Garlic Flakes and Mango Atchara.

It sounded good but it was just normal. It didn’t marry. I couldn’t taste their distinct taste. What’s good though is the really soft bread that came with it.

I ran into Para once but i never got the chance to say Hi. This was during the first ever Food Crawl i had and the day when The Usual Suspects are born. I must admit the name sounded cool and catchy but this was not enough to make me stop and check them out.

Today is the day that i atone to my foodie sins. I got to try Para by way of a foodie event my homies organized.

Para specializes in Pinoy sandwiches. The following dishes were served:

Sisig x Sausage Sandwich. This is not the actual name of the dish. The name escaped my memory but the taste lingered up to this day. As my made-up name connotes, the sandwich is comprised of juicy sausage topped with sisig sandwiched by a bun. Wow! This is one of those odd flavor combinations that will bring shivers. The sandwich is so darn good! Excellent flavor contrast.

Adobo Pancit. Two Pinoy faves combined into one awesome plate. Usage of the bihon is brilliant as it absorbs the adobo flavor like a sponge hence creating a tasty treat.

Grilled Cheese Pandesal. This is Para's interpretation of the Grilled Cheese. I was wowed for the nth time. The softness of the pandesal worked well with the cheese. I believe they used a blue and cheddar. I didnt mind that they used blue as the cheddar toned down the sharpness to an acceptable level.

Taro Chips!!! I am running of "wows" at this point. These babies are so good i want some now. Yes, NOW!

Drop whatever it is that you're doing and try Para. I mean it.

I'm loving Para Filipino Sandwich Bar's unique yet delicious sandwich spins to Filipino dishes. Particularly, I'm loving their Shrimp Aligue Slaw Sandwich and their Lechon Pares Sandwich.

The Lechon Pares Sandwich deliciously stuffed with Lechon, Salted Duck Eggs, and Pickled Cucumbers. Touched with a sauce which nicely tasted a bit sweet. A unique sandwich that certainly brought a twist to eating Lechon.

The Shrimp Aligue Slaw,again a delicious and interesting twist to shrimps and crab fat. Nicely seasoned succulent shrimp with rich Aligue sauce nicely balanced with the lightly creamy Coleslaw dressing. Yum!

Loved both these unique sandwiches. Will be back for more and will try the other food stalls in this great food park.
