After a day of shopping, I stopped at a Tropical Hut, curious to try it out. I ordered the "bistek" combo (beef steak in a soy and citrus based sauce with onions on rice) as this is a favourite dish of mine.
I was excited to see what their version was, but was quickly disappointed. The beef was tender, but drenched in a gravy-like sauce, similar to the gravy of KFC in North America. As this is not how the dish is traditionally made (there wa no citrus flavour whatsoever!), I was not quite disappointed to say the least.
I did try the pancit palabok however, and that was surprisingly tasty. Guess I just ordered the wrong dish.
