So last week Poch and I decided to finally go to Red Corner in Plazuela. It was awesome but at bad timing because I had left my camera at our apartment (in our university, which is an hour and a half away from the city, where everything relevant is), so I had to make do with my crappy phone camera (for all its innovations and features Blackberry decides to hold out on a good camera). Red Corner is basically affordable Chinese food, which is just great because ‘affordable’ and ‘Chinese food’ are just some of my most favourite words in the world.
This was the PAN FRIED TENDERLOIN CHINESE STYLE. It was good but nothing substantial about it. It’s basically pan fried beef in some sort of Oriental-y sauce (?).
This was the HOT PRAWN SALAD, which was just ineffably delicious and left the both of us craving for it for the rest of the week. It’s basically a cold salad (cabbage, pineapple and some other bits I forgot) coupled with bite-sized hot prawn topped with a sweet sauce (mayonnaise-y) and sesame seeds. I don’t know why there’s a cherry because it served no purpose (cherries never do—I don’t like cherries).
The problem with Red Corner is that holy crap they’ve got big servings. Well, probably they’ve got average-sized servings but we suspected that the Hot Prawn Salad was to blame for getting us full within probably the first fifteen minutes of our meal. Either way we’re not going back to Red Corner unless we have at least one other person with us to help us finish the meal. It was really tough, you know. At one point I got up and walked around the restaurant for a bit just so I could ‘burn’ some of what I ate and be able to finish my food.
So that was our experience at Red Corner. Chinese food is hella awesome.
