Birthday Lunch at Barrio Fiesta (Milpitas, CA)

One of my birthday wishes came true this year which was to have my whole family celebrate with me over a sumptuous feast. As the celebrant, I treated my whole family to lunch. It was my pleasure to see them enjoy themselves, so I told them to “just order whatever you want!”

Boy, the power of those 5 words on my family’s appetite! They did not hold back that our server had to stop them from ordering more! LOL! They ordered TWO of the following:

  • Crispy Pata (Deep-fried crispy pork thigh)
  • Beef Kalderata (Beef stewed in tomato sauce)
  • Kare-Kare (Beef inpeanut sauce served with bagoong or shrimp paste)
  • Sisig
  • Pancit: Canton and Guisado (Stir-fried egg and rice noodles)
  • Beef Nilaga
  • Chicharon Bulakbak (Crispy intestines)
  • Crab Omelet
