Mogu Tree Noodle House

It’s my first holiday since I started working! The start of the rainy season was not going to keep me from enjoying this day. So we had a mini adventure at one of my favorite cities ever. Yup, Marikina! Woot.

After visiting the kids at CRIBS we took a cab to Lilac Street, Marikina. The cab ride was awful but that’s not what this post is about so I’ll save that for later.

Marikina’s Hidden Treasures: Macky’s Goto

I am absolutely in love with the city of Marikina. Macky’s Goto is yet another reason to love the city even more. I’ve read & heard so many good things about this hole-in-the-wall restaurant so my family and I just had to give it a try.

After eating here we also bought the best puto kutsinta in the world from a nearby store. I swear, this is the puto of your life.

My family ordered the goto & tokwa’t baboy and they all loved it. I got the Sam-friendly version (plain lugaw & tokwa). The lugaw was good, but the real winner for me was the crispy tokwa swimming in their AMAZING suka (vinegar). I was that they actually cook their vinegar mix in a giant pot (I’d like to get my hands on that!)
