Budget Philipino favourite Rigga Street 5 Reviews
- Picture 1 of 2
From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2008
Try the lumpiang sariwa, sweetly wrapped rolls of fresh carrot, mange tout, spring onion, prawns and lettuce with crushed garlic and peanut sauce; or the bulalo, the house speciality, which offers a huge hacking of fatty beef that spills squishy marrow from the bone into a watery, cabbage-strewn stock.
If you’re feeling brave, try the halo halo, essentially a mix of ice, jackfruit, red and blue jelly cubes, sweetcorn, mung beans and mashed purple yam in evaporated milk. This mixed-up dessert-cum-drink is a popular choice among Filipinos.
Then there’s the potent, ginger-stuffed parcels of squid, the raw fish soaked in vinegar and chilli (kilawing tanigue), and the tiny but tenderly sautéed nuggets of meat and tofu cubes of the tokwat beef.
