I don't know why it took me forever to eat at Namnam
The Filipino restaurant has been there for ages. I just don't go to Greenbelt that often anymore.
But now I will.
Namnam serves our favorite Filipino dishes two ways - traditional style and with a twist.
I love that you can choose from different serving sizes, so you can order small and still try a
variety of dishes when eating alone, or go large so you do not have to start WW5 when
sharing the meal with a big group.
The four of us were trying to eat in moderation so we ordered only 1 appetizer, 5 viands, and garlic rice, all medium-sized except for the rice because garlic, they say, is good for the heart. :P
Ensaladang Namnam - tinapa flakes, mangga't bagoong, pomelo, native tomatoes,
red onions, peanuts
Grilled Tiger Prawns with House-made Aligue Butter - sadly, these were overcooked
Braised then Fried Chicken and Pork Adobo with Flakes - very tasty
The next 3 dishes are my favorites. I will order all these again and again and again and again.
I strongly suggest you do the same.
Kare-Kare with Oxtail
Crispy Pork Binagoongan
The search for the best chopped pig face ends here at Namnam.
It made me eat so much garlic rice. Dammit.
Ritchie raved nonstop about her Papaya Black Pepper Juice.
Indeed, it was delicious, but it's got nothing on my purple drink!
MY UBE SAGO SHAKE ♥ ♥ ♥
Like eating melted ube ice cream through a straw!
This definitely makes it to my requested drinks list for my last meal on earth.
If there is one thing I must complain about Namnam, it is these pretty booths.
I swear they become tinier and tinier as the meal progressed. If you are a bit protruding in the
middle to begin with, I suggest you take the regular tables.
Look at how uncomfortably snug we were halfway through dinner when the table started to push
against our stomachs. I PROMISE YOU Ellen Adarna's got nothing on our abs before this meal. :P
