Restaurant Review: Linkin Pork
One of the recent restaurants we tried recently is a very newly opened one appropriately and hilariously called Linkin Pork. As you may gather from the name, their specialty is pork, in the form of sausages (links!). One Monday evening we decided to give this a shot.
Here’s a very low res shot of their menu.
What caught our attention is of course the house specialty: sausages! Here’s a close up of the three types of sausages they serve, and the meal combos you can make with them. Basically, cajun is spicy pork sausage, cincinnati is the nonspicy version of cajun, and boudin is a pork-and-chicken sausage.
Let me show you the things we ordered: First up, drinks! Iced tea and complimentary house water. I love their glasses!
Playful posing for the camera while waiting for the orders to arrive.
The Man’s order arrived first. It’s a plate of vigan longganisa and rice, with a side of sliced tomatoes and fried egg. He chose vigan longganisa because this is the type of longganisa I don’t like, and we will definitely not be having this on a regular basis at home. Why don’t I like it? It’s a little bit too weirdly spiced for my taste. On the other hand, he loved it!
The appetizer arrived next. It’s fried sausage and mushrooms, topped with what appears to be wheatgrass or lemongrass. The sausage tasted like the cincinnati sausage.
My order arrived next. It’s a cajun sausage combo B, which meant I got herbed potato salad and mixed greens with red wine vinaigrette. The sausage wasn’t as spicy as I was expecting, but it was pretty good! It had a slight cheesy taste, and was very tender. I swapped my potato salad for The Man’s egg.
Lastly, Tee’s order arrived. It’s a cincinnati combo C, so she got bread, meaty red sauce, french fries, and honey mustard dip. Her sausage tasted the same as our appetizer. She loved everything on her plate! although she was not able to finish the sausage, and gave away her leftover red sauce.
We also got to try out their coffee and cinnamon roll, courtesy of David (owner of Linkin Pork). They also have a coffee menu again appropriately called LinkinPerks! I love their naming conventions! Here’s a shot of the menu.
My coffee is a latte with irish cream. It was amazing coffee! I would love to bring my coffeeholic dad here so he can try this.
Lastly, here’s a pic of the cinnamon roll. I forgot to ask if this will be on the menu, but I sure hope so as this is amazing as well!
Summary: Great sausages for a fair price. We paid about 800 pesos for the three meals, the appetizer, and the drinks. Will definitely be going back. Linkin Pork has two street parking slots, but they have more at the back. They also have provisions for functions on their second floor. Check out their facebook page here.
