Our Take-Out Dinner - Tom's Crispy Pata

Location: Congressional Avenue,
Quezon City, Philippines
(and in other Q.C. areas too!)
Price: Php 350.00

Whenever I'm too tired or lazy to cook, and waaay too hungry to wait for food delivery... we decide on ordering from any of the Take-Out Food stalls around Q.C. Choices range from Lechon Manok, Liempo, Lechon, Sisig, Pork Barbeque, or Crispy Pata. If I get to pick, and if my husband doesn't try to talk me out of the "cholesterol" bit, I'd always choose CRISPY PATA! I already mentioned I LOVE CRISPY PATA right? Hahaha :-)

We've already tried ordering from different Crispy Pata take-out stalls, but this was our latest Crispy Pata order since I started publishing my blog entries last month... so Tom's Crispy Pata is now the first Crispy Pata take-out I'll be reviewing :-)


What I Like: 
> Size - The biggest Crispy Pata we've ordered for Take-out so far...good enough for 3 people.. can be shared by 4 max. others are not good enough for 2 people to share... let alone 3. Well, I mean, that's when we're eating.. and if you're starving and not on a diet ok :-)
> Price - just right for the size. I'd rather pay Php 350.00 for a bigger Crispy Pata like Tom's than having to order 2 small ones at 230 each...
> Taste - good, flavorful... even the meat inside is tasty :-)

What I Didn't Like:
Not that I didn't like the Crispy Pata.. I LIKED IT A LOT.. but...
> The leg part - I believe the Crispy Pata we got was the hind leg... I personally prefer the Front Leg since the meat there is more tender... but then again, we can't just toss all the hind legs right.... hahaha :-) Maybe we should specify the part we want next time.. if it is possible :-)

Will I Go Back?:
> Yes! Too bad there isn't one near the Commonwealth area... perhaps you guys know a branch near us?

Do I Recommend This Place?:
> Yes
