Beef Caldereta – Another Filipino favorite beef caldereta is one of their best sellers, I love how tender the meat is to the point that I don’t have to use force to break the meat. Their version is very tasty as well and savory. Meat is not overcooked and dry. Perfect with rice as well but I personally love this with beer.
Pansit Puti – This Cabalen pancit menu is one of the healthiest versions of our favorite noodle dish. Very Simple yet flavorful so if you are planning on a light diet then this meal is perfect for you. Made with rice bihon soaked in water, some chicken strips, and other ingredients. Usually, pancit here in the country uses soy sauce but not the pancit puti leaving it colorless.
Dinuguan – One of the Filipino favorites is on the list of their best-selling items. The dinuguan is made with meat usually from the head part of the pork or belly part and blood. Best partner with rice or with puto to complete the Filipino experience. Their version is really good and a must-try as well.
Pritchon Sisig – Crispy and full of flavor, that’s how they describe the pritchon sisig. This dish is an innovation on the popular sisig of the Philippines. The flavor is just perfect and the little crispiness in every bite made this dish so special, goes very well with rice or as an appetizer. Actually, this Cabalen menu is best to pair with a beer.
Crispy Pata – This menu is one of the most popular items that can be found anywhere but their version of the Filipino crispy pata is so good I can finish one serving without sharing.
