C’s sister was raving about Neil ’s Kitchen and their chicken, so what choice do we have but go, right? We usually justify eating out for no reason to trying out the chicken dishes because.. well, chicken boy is chicken boy.
Whenever I first visit a restaurant, I just go with whatever their bestseller is. It saves me from the hassle of having to choose from so many things I have not yet tried. I went with sinigang paella which arrived on our table first, and the moment I took a small portion of rice in my mouth, I was visibly flabbergasted. I have never used flabbergasted to describe how I feel about food before, but I’m using it now because WTF I am so confused. C saw this and took a bite as well, and the same look came upon his face. Chicken momentarily forgotten, we discussed how something can taste so much like our beloved sinigang, a Filipino cuisine classic, and paella at the same time. C has never been this confused and torn about food as well. He did enjoy the chicken, but I can tell you that we have gone back a couple of times since then, and he’s always ordered the Sinigang Paella instead. 😛
