500 Peso Challenge #2: Ely’s Kambingan

Thank goodness for long weekends

I had the whole Monday to just chill

But it was time for our second 500 peso-challenge

So Ernan, Peter and I decided to try Ely’s Kambingan

Their Kalderetang Kambing (Goat Stew) is their bestseller

For 45 pesos, I find their serving as very generous

I just find the meat on the tough side unlike most kalderatas I’ve tasted

I don’t think that tomato sauce was part of the ingredients

I find its sauce too sweet and felt like it was cooked in pineapple juice

I love their Kilawing Kambing (40.00)

Portions of the serving has that crunchy feel which was good

The vinegar used jived with the ingredients making it more tasty

Using kalamansi and sili made this dish even more delectable

This one’s a must-order and easily runs out

The Sinampalukang Kambing (40.00) is also good

Compared to their kaldereta, the goat meat here is tender

The sourness of the sampalok really delivers

To make it more appetizing, add kalamansi and siling labuyo

Now this one’s not for the faint-hearted

The Papaitang Kambing (40.00) is cooked the Ilokano-way

I will not anymore described how it’s done

I took a sip of the broth and almost easily my stomach turned

But Peter Pilot seemed to enjoy the dish

This challenge costs 411 pesos including a liter of coke.  Each of us had one order each of the kaldereta, sinampalukan and kilawin while Peter was the only one who ordered the papaitan. Ely’s Kambingan is located along Casquejo Street, right at the back of Planters’ Bank.  It’s your basic carenderia but without the langaw (housefly).  They are open from Monday to Saturday from 6:30 am to 2:00 pm.  On a regular day, you might find it difficult to get a table  during lunchtime.  They may be contacted thru 0935-962-5105.
