One of my favorite dishes at North Park is the Nanking Beef and Aniseed Beef Tendon. I love beef tendon, especially when it's tender and melts in your mouth. And the distinctive flavor of aniseed was just perfect, not overwhelming. I would buy beef tendon every week if not for my mom's uric acid level.:p
I was in San Juan last week and made a wrong turn at a one-way street. I almost made a U-turn at a gas station when I noticed a North Park along P. Guevarra. As usual, it was way past lunchtime and the place was almost empty (which I prefer to a lunchtime crowd).
I got these shrimp dumplings (hakao) for appetizer. It was a delightful lunch.
