Aniseed Beef Tendon

@ mirandablue
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.

In the years we played tennis in Makati on Saturday's we often went to North Park after... the aniseed beef was a favorite.
