Neighborhood residents and hospital employees flock to this carinderia for its heavenly Dinuguan (P40). Its thick stew is extra tangy and flaunts very tender fatty pork chunks. We couldn’t taste any other spices except for salt and vinegar. The serving may be small (about a cup), but you’ll gladly buy another one.
Aling Banang’s is also very popular since it was also featured in a lot of TV shows like Feel at home, Mel & Joey, Kabuhayang swak na swak and Umagang kay ganda, but again unfortunately I never had the chance to taste their famous dinuguan, pansit and also halo-halo, well, if I can base my judgement on its picture online, I can say that it looks good but I wan’t it to be more clotted and thick. :)
