The other day we had some errands in town so on the way back home, we picked up some plate lunches at Pongo's Kitchen.
This tiny shop doesn't have seating in fact, they don't really have parking either.
Luckily, there were 3 of us, so while 1 jumped out to pick up the food, the rest of us stayed in the car.
Apparently, you can park at the auto body shop next door. (didn't find this out until afterwards...)
I ordered the special of the day: mini sweet and sour spareribs with macaroni salad and brown rice.
These spareribs were tender and meaty...delicious! (not sure of the price). My only peeve with this was that they "smushed" the rice into the scoop...
Loved that there was enough sweet and sour gravy to mix with the rice and mac salad...
Mom chose the mini guava chicken...um, it was spicy, there was a nice crunchy batter on the moist and meaty pieces of chicken, but no sign of guava anywhere...It actually tasted more like a sweet chili sauce rather than guava...US$5.25
Also, thumbs down to their "ranch" dressing, Mom said it tasted more like straight mayo.
Dad chose their grilled shrimp plate...he got 9 pieces of shrimp drizzle with garlic butter (we counted)...this was tasty.
But he also gave a thumbs down to their salad, too many big leaves....US$8
Kinda mixed reaction from this place, but for the most part, their food was good and pretty reasonably priced.
