Mila’s Tokwa’t Baboy Review
After an early morning that started at the Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, we went for lunch at this famous restaurant in Angeles City. We ordered their other bestsellers – Sizzling Sisig, Chicharon Bulaklak, and Paco Salad.
Most of the sisig I’ve tried throughout the years have mayo and egg with it so I was pleasantly surprised with the restaurant’s version of sisig. Mila’s Tokwa’t Baboy’s popular sisig is made by first boiling the pork meat and then deep-fried until roasted. The meat is crunchy and dry, which I liked better than the ones now served in the metro.
I also liked the Paco Salad which was made of ferns, tomatoes, onions, salted egg, and vinaigrette. It was fresh and worth it for its price.
During our visit, the food was quite good but we were underwhelmed with the service. They were clearly understaffed that day as there were too many tables that took a long time before it was cleaned up, ours included. We practically had to beg a few times just for a staff to take our order.
Based on the influx of people coming in, it is quite famous. They even have a wall showing the famous personalities who have dined at Mila’s.
