Following a tip gleaned from ChowNews, we made a foray to Sinugba in Daly City for breakfast. Resisting the urge to sing along with the very lively beach party karaoke playing on the tv, we tried the crispy fried chicken and the lechon plates. Crispy fried chicken was just that, 4 pieces of piping hot, crisp, deep-fried dark meat with a vingar-soysauce dipping sauce. It came with a scoop of the most unbelievable steamed rice, lightly salted and infused with garlic. To top it all off, there were two perfectly done over-easy fried eggs. The lechon plate was the same, except instead of piping hot crispy chicken, there were piping hot crispy chunks of fatty pork. The breakfast plates have the option of soup or fried eggs, and garlic or white rice. We wanted to try the soup, feeling (correctly) that the two fried eggs might be too much but we weren't quite able to communicate sufficiently with the server to order the soup.

I had two observations:
1). ChowNews is great. I totally missed the original post about this place since it was buried in a discussion about spam. I can't imagine how I would have found this place on my own either - it is tucked away in a strip mall with no distinguishing features whatsoever. There is no menu outside, and the shades were closed when we went so we could barely see inside.

2). Since discovering Chowhound, my consumption of fatty pork has increased dramatically. I hope my mother (who is obsessing that I won't fit into my wedding dress next month) doesn't find out.
