Reading the "jumped the dining shark" post, made me think of this past weekend when I joined my filipino friends at Cherry Garden in Fremont.
Sometimes, a pile of pork in various forms will reawaken tired taste buds.
If you have never been, the Cherry Garden has every form of filipino breakfast baconsilong, tapsilog, longsilog, adobsilog, bangusilog etc etc.
My friends ordered the "Platter" a mountain of meats and grilled eggplant that was quite tasty and included lechon kawali, crispy pata, fried chicken + "unlimited rice" you could eat as much garlic fried rice or steamed rice as you wanted until you burst.
