BITE Contemporary Cuisine: Biting to Perfection!

Bite’s Kaldereta pot pie that was slow-cooked to perfection stole the limelight. Mind you, it was twice baked! The Kaldereta is one of the best that I had, proving that Kapampangan cooks it very well – my grandmother who’s also from Pampanga cooks delicious Kaldereta. The beef will just melt in your mouth, and the sauce is very flavorful. We won’t show you what it looks inside, it’s for you to find out!

For fish lovers, there’s Salmon Belly Laksa which Angel (our new Managing Editor) and I totally loved. The spiciness is just right. Angel, who lived in Thailand for a few years, said it wasn’t too spicy. Maybe you can ask them to make a little bit more spicy that would fit to your palate.

Another crowd-pleaser is Bite’s Crispy Tadyang, Davao Macadamia Kare-Kare. Mae and I made sure that the serving plate will be close to clean after dinner, and we almost did it. I didn’t know that we grow macadamia nuts in Davao, Chef Jam found a hidden gem in our country and made the best dish out of it. If you love Kare-Kare, this is a must try! I actually loved that the sauce is not too thick, and that you can actually taste the peanut component. Plus, the crispy tadyang is heavenly good!
