I had forgotten that the cook was going on her annual vacation starting today. It was only when my yaya Helen knocked on my door at around 5:00 pm asking what we were going to have for dinner. Yikes! Top of mind was to open a bottle of Salsa Amaya and grab whatever pasta noodles were available, and good ole fried chicken. Easy stuff. I would be happy with that menu. Just to sure, I called my mom and asked her about dinner. She asked me to ask the maids what their food was and they were just having leftovers from breakfast and lunch. I doubt my mom would want that. She later called me up and said that she ordered food from NINAK.
I’ve heard my mom rave about NINAK several times but until I try it myself, I can’t and won’t absorb what she is saying.
“I ordered Hainanese Chicken Rice, and 3 Satay Rice. Will that be enough for everyone?”
“Yes mom, Xavier isn’t having dinner here….”.
Exactly 7:00pm the delivery man rang the doorbell. As I come down from dinner, one pack (white cardboard box, thank God it wasn’t plastic) was in front of me. My mom had 3 other boxes in front of her. I didn’t bother to check what they had on the other side of the table. I could smell the chicken rice immediately and wanted to dive into it asap.
No time to document the meal. But it was GOOD! I had the Satay Ninak which was surprisingly juicy unlike most Satay Chicken BBQ which end up dry. Need I say more about the chicken rice that came with it? Put it this way, I went beyond my 1/4 cup rice limit. No way was I going to put the rest to waste. I wasn’t able to try the Hain Ninak which is their version of Hainanese Boneless Chicken with side sauces. Must list that down for the next time I order for delivery. Burp. Excuse me.
