Easter Sunday has always been special and we normally go out for lunch to celebrate it. This year we tried Pig Out in Solenad, Nuvali, Sta. Rosa, Laguna, walking distance from our home. We were lucky to get the last available table. I thought Pig Out was a barbecue restaurant and was surprised that it served Filipino dishes with a dish. We ordered sisig in wraps and spicy chicken wings for appetizers and had grilled tuna belly with chilis, crispy kare-kare, pork 3-way sinigang (in tamarind, guava and kamias broth) and dilis and chicharon fried rice. We haven't tried any of these dishes before except for the crispy kare-kare which is also served in a number of Manila restaurants. Of the 2 appetizers, I liked the sisig in wraps. It was novel and delicious. The sinigang was superb! The flavors infused by the ripe guava in the broth was refreshing. The crispy kare-kare was just average and the serving size was also quite small. The grilled tuna belly was not as hot as expected and the chilis did not have the kick we anticipated. The dilis fried rice was good with an abundance of crispy dilis and fried garlic and topped with slivers of fresh green mango. The chicharon fried rice was so-so, nothing really special. The restaurant served water with cucumber and lemon slices which was effective in cleansing the palate after each dish. Prices were a bit high considering the small serving sizes. The restaurant caters to families and big groups and is informal. There are 2 televisions where sports channels are shown. With its hits and misses, I would probably be back to try the other dishes and discover some stars in the process.
