Palagutom Kid did not eat his breakfast and even lunch because he has decided to dine somewhere in the town of Narvacan in Ilocos Sur. Skipping two meals, could you just imagine how I crave for food and I am expecting to eat a lot in Narvacan this time because of my hungry condition. I found Mang Inasal branch at the Narvacan Mall in Narvacan, Ilocos Sur.
I ordered Pork Sisig with unlimited rice (99pesos) but the lady at the counter said in vernacular, "It is not available." Well that was fine so I ordered another food.
Next, I am craving for the halo-halo and the lady said again, "Sir our ice crusher isn't working." I raised my eye brows and looked around, uh, everyone is eating halo-halo and how come the ice crusher isn't working to me!
So the lady asked me, "What is your drinks sir."
"Just give me service water," I replied in irritated mode. So what is the use that I am going to order those drinks she was offering the fact that there is no ice crusher? Better drink water.
After I ordered the food the lady again asked me if I am willing to wait for the food for 8 minutes. I agreed with her.
After 15 minutes, there was still no food and I am so hungry since I skipped two meals just to have huge appetite in this town destination where I am now being a traveling gutom.
What else? Since I am very thirsty, I went back to the counter to order sorbetes (19pesos, I ordered 2) but I was waiting at the counter for about two minutes because no one ever seemed to see me and to entertain me considering they don't have many customers this time while some of the crew members are just sitting in one corner while two industrious crew members (one is maybe a trainee because he wears white shirt) are busy cleaning the tables and serving food!
After about two minutes of waiting at the counter, the lady asked me if I have 3pesos because my money was 100pesos, for that I will give 103pesos and she'll change me with 65. I said, I have nothing so she just gave me 60pesos and marked my receipt with number 2 and she encircled it so I am expecting that they will hand me the two pesos later on.
The Bangus Sisig was placed on a hot sizzling plate but when I tasted the food OMG, it was cold! So what the heck they gave me a sizzling plate when the only one that is hot is the rice and the bangus sisig is COLD!
I just enjoyed the food and there is no way of turning back since I am ultra-hungry. However, I love the bangus sisig but it was just ironical that it is placed on a hot sizzling plate "with matching steam" yet the food is cold.
Before leaving the restaurant, I was waiting for the two-peso change but no one came to give it to me after an ample time of waiting :(
