Goodah!!!'s Krispy Kare-kare or "KKK" uses fine ground peanuts to give the tradionally rich flavor of its sauce. Every bowl was filled with cooked string beans, talong, pechay, and of course, puso ng saging. Of course, the soft and juicy beef flank. The Shrimp paste gives the Kare-kare an additional flavors.


During the event, guest tried the Krispy Kare-kare, Crispy Pata and the BBQ Chicken. Among the three, I love the Crispy Pata more, the texture and the crispiness of the pork is just enough to satisfy your taste buds. Krispy Kare-kare is good, however, I feel like that there is something missing in the dish. I just don't know perhaps its just me. Also, we have Buko Pandan for dessert.
