|Growing up, Tocino was my ultimate favorite food. The reddish meat seemed too fun to be true with its juicy texture and sweet aroma. And then... I grew up. Little by little, I came to question why it needed to be too bloody red and I associated it with being very artificial.|
I'm not saying that I ever stopped eating tocino as it was a difficult habit to break. I still did, here and there. It was still a safety meal that I can order whenever I'm feeling less adventurous.
But KKB's tocino is different. You can still recognize the meat as pork while being mighty tasty. It's mildly sweet - just enough to be distinguished as tocino - and a bit chewy too. I complemented it with light vinegar instead of the usual catsup and it was very enjoyable.
At some point, you may think of it as a sweet pork version of their tapa especially if there's little familiarity on this pinoy staple.
Simply put, KKB's tocino, sinangag, and itlog is a real treat but it's not quite in the same league as KKB's Tapsilog and Grilled Spare Ribs.
Price Range: Php50
Verdict: It won't kill to try
