Sisig Is The Yin and Sinuglaw Is The Yang in Dinahs Fud Haus Cagayan de Oro

Yin and Yang combo of local favourites
This by far is the best karinderya* Sinuglaw** and Sisig I have tasted in Cagayan de Oro.  

Thinking about it makes my mouth water already.  It is so so good.

I first discovered this when my Aunt Elsa shared with me that there is a karinderya where she always buys her sisig.  She also assured me that the place can be trusted with their food as she knows the owner, ms Dinah, her old friend and ex-colleague.

I was hangry -- angry plus hungry.  I rushed to 4-21.

"Conveniently situated at a corner.  Ok!"

Easy to locate with a big tarp that had the name, Dinah's Fud Haus.

Went to see the pots and pans that contained the food.  I ordered the viand that had one serving left, then my Aunt's recommendation.

"One Sinuglaw, One Sisig, Two single rice."

Sinuglaw and Rice (40 PH Pesos)
Ayayay. Creamy. Tangy. Spicy. YES!  The sinuglaw that keeps me craving for more, so beware of your diet.

Sisig and Rice (40 PH Pesos)
Woooh.  Thick-sauced savory and a bit sweet, sisig to pair is perfect.

They are like Yin and Yang, I go from one to the other.

Immediately I went from hearing heavy metal to zen music.  So much love went into the food.  And if you are lucky, ms Dinah will serve you food and even call you "anak" (term of endearment meaning "my child").  How homey.

Both meals are 40PH Pesos with viand and rice at Dinah's Eatery.

Oh, Egan and I ate at 4th-21st.  I might have forgotten to mention I was not alone though I'm sure some of you thought I ate all of the above by myself.  Huh?

4-21 Nazareth

Back to the topic, yes, that is one karinderya plus, they have branches in Tomas Saco-14 and Pabayo-Chaves (Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines), all very accessible via motorela or taxi.

Yup.  Splendid eats.

That's it.  Catch you on my next munchtrip.

Bye bye my fellow munchters.
