Santa Cruz

3.5/5Good!(31 area reviews)

If you're spending some time in Santa Cruz, Fuente Osmena Circle and Robinsons Plaza are top sights worth seeing.

Santa Cruz
Chicken feet is typically cooked in black bean sauce giving it that mild earthy and salty flavor. Sugar is also added to the sauce to make sure the skin on the chicken feet does not disintegrate during the steam during the cooking process. Soy sauce and Oyster sauce can also be added for that extra kick of umami.

Growing up I was exposed to a lot of different types of dimsum dishes. My mom's favorite chicken feet in black bean sauce also became one of my favorites. The soft, chewy skin and the crunchy cartilage were appealing textures in my mouth. I'd normally set aside another plate on the side so I can spit out the bones on it. It reminds me of all cartoons where monsters eat someone/something and spitting the bones out.

a fight like no other... let's go BOODLE FIGHT! 💪🏼
Now before you go on a flight or fight mode, boodle fight is actually a military style of eating where people gather round long tables and food is prepared on top of banana leaves. You will find yourself in a "fight” that refers to the act of grabbing and eating as much as you can before others grab them or runs out 😂
