Aling Nene Express

For most Manilenos, placing delivery orders at Aling Nene has been a tradition when you want to treat your officemates or your family with a filling lunch. And why not, this restaurant along Osmena Highway, Manila has been around since 1955 and is well known for their legendary pork barbeque.

So recently, I chose to order at Aling Nene as a birthday treat for my workmates. We asked it to be delivered in our Mandaluyong office by 11:30am to 12nn but the food arrived at 12:30pm!

Anyway, here’s what we had:

Of course, their famous Pork Barbeque! It is tender and flavorful. The accompanying “vinegar” sauce tastes great and compliments well with the barbeque.
Regular Pork Barbeque, PhP 35/piece

This one is also a must-try, the Pansit Palabok. It has generous sauce and loaded with garnishings.

Another Aling Nene cult favorite, the Lumpiang Shanghai (I loved the accompanying sauce!):

We also had the usual Pinoy fares, Kare-Kare & Chopsuey:
the still "unmixed" Kare-Kare, PhP 700/gallon

Chopsuey, PhP 425/small bilao

We just cooked our own rice to cut costs. Total bill was PhP 3,322 (inclusive of taxes, etc plus). Our orders came with two complimentary 2-liter softdrinks, but they didn't inform us, so we already bought from the store down the building. There were 14 of us and I guess serving size is big because the leftovers can still make a full dinner! I can say that Aling Nene’s is perfect for those group get-togethers—delicious yet affordable.
