Being sick today (for the past 4 days, actually) makes me crave for comfort food. Comfort food is Ilocano food that I grew up with. Chinese food has also become my comfort food. And the turo-turo style at Happy Delicious Kitchen apeals so much to me and my family!
My favorite is Taiwanese pientong – packed lunch box that consist of one meat dish, 2 veggies and rice. In Taiwan, hub’s folks don’t have to bring me to anywhere fancy. I’d be perfectly happy with a pientong, especially the porkchop rice, from one of the turo-turos there.
Locally, we are, or at least I am, always on the hunt for authentic Taiwanese turo-turo. And we were happy to have discovered Happy Delicious Kitchen on, where else, Benavidez Street, Binondo! One can go on a Benavidez food trip and get a huge taste of Binondo already…
Check out the wide variety of food!
Happy Delicious Kitchen is right on the corner of Salazar and Benavidez Streets. It’s a typical Taiwanese turo-turo, with lots of pre-cooked food choices of meats, chicken, fish, shrimps, seafood, sausages, and veggies. Most buy to-go food, which makes sense because the dining space is really small.
But guess what I settle for there, always?
Yup! Pork chop rice! This one has mapo tofu and the veggie is either kangkong or pechay. Taiwanese pork chop is my favorite, hehe. 😀
