Asadong Pork Giniling with Quail Egg and Mushroom

This dish reminds me of those carinderia dishes that are affordable, back home when I used to work in Makati I uses to eat on one of those near Arnaiz Avenue, it’s not a posh place but they do serve some simple and very affordable good dishes like this.

Honestly I don’t really know how they made this in that carinderia but I will try to recreate this to most of my knowledge. Asadong Pork Giniling with Quail Egg and Mushroom is a simple dish of minced pork cooked in sweet savoury style thick sauce prepared with quail eggs, mushrooms and spring onions, its simplicity at its best, try it I am sure you will like the simple flavours this dish have to offer.

    This is a posh version of one of my favourite lunches when I was still a university student in UP Diliman. Good times!
