Upon my mom’s prodding, we decided to eat at Tita Annie’s at Victoria Plaza, Bajada, Davao City in a recent trip to my hometown Davao. I was craving for batchoy at that time so I ordered the Tita Annie’s special batchoy.
Batchoy is basically comprised of sweet meat broth, slices of meat and pork innards, spring onions, garlic and other taste enhancers plus fresh noodles. Batchoy is usually topped off with crushed pork cracklings (chicharon).
So you can just imagine my dismay when this was served to me:
Not only did it taste bland, I particularly didn’t like the fact that the chicharon wasn’t crushed. Instead of being extra toppings, the pork skin cracklings looked as if they were “part” of the meal itself. Ayayay.
Meal wasn’t worth it. That was a disappointment.
What about you guys? Have you been disappointed with a meal you ordered recently?
