Where to Eat on a Hypoallergenic Diet: C2 Classic Cuisine

by christinady

Last Sunday, my Boracay trip did not push through because of typhoon Ruby. No matter– a canceled trip cannot stop this lola from having fun!

Great timing, because it was a very rare Sunday (like, once a year) when my kuya did not have to work.  So we had lots of coffee and kwento and I helped him choose secret santa gifts and he gave me Tony Robbins’ Money book (awesome).

We were also able to catch Radioactive Sago Project at the Shaw Station of Rock the Riles. I missed watching live bands!  It was my ex’s band after (ooops haha) so we went inside Shang to get dinner.

He was craving liempo so we went to C2 at the 6th floor of Shanri-la mall. And, the liempo turned to this:

Lechon kawali — deep fried pork belly with the bagoong,  eggplant and assorted veggies on the side.

Gising-gising–  It was my first time to try it with sigarilyas! It’s usually green beans. But this was better! I also loved the chopped labuyo mixed in, and the coconut milk sauce. I asked for the shrimp to be separated.

Sisig rice– rice, sisig, chicharon. Thankfully I’m not allergic to pork!

And I got the drink ginumis– sago, and coconut milk. I asked for the panocha syrup to be taken out.

sisig rice, ginumis

The servings were huge– perfect for sharing. We still had a lot for takeaway.

I used to eat their bibingka souffle all the time— there’s nothing like it.  But it has egg so I cannot eat that anymore.  Sadness! But everyone should go try it out.  Goes great with a cup of hot black coffee. 

This is a wonderful place to have simple clean food that tastes great. And the service was excellent– they accommodated all my requests with a smile. Yey C2!
