Malabon has lots of hole-in-the-wall restaurants that offer sumptuous and authentic food. Aside from the popular Pancit Malabon and Dolor’s Kakanin, there are other yummylicious food to try in Malabon like the sumpia, kikiam, giant burgers, pichi-pichi, etc. I also heard about Judy Ann’s Crispy Pata from Jamicos restaurant being one of the must-try food when you’re in Malabon. Since Malabon is just a jeepney away from Caloocan, I decided to order this for Gwen’s 9th month birthday.
I initially called Jamicos to order the crispy pata in advance so that I won’t wait long in their restaurant. So after 30 minutes, Judy Ann’s Crispy Pata is ready…
I ordered the jumbo size, Php 450. They have an XL size.
I like the fact that I can order thru phone and just pick up and pay at the restaurant, no wasted time. The crispy pata is still hot when I got home and the skin is really crunchy! The meat is tender and falls off the bone. However, I find Judy Ann’s Crispy Pata a little on the sweet side, maybe a dipping sauce of soy sauce, calamansi and chili will do the trick on making it perfect for a pulutan.
201 Gen. Luna St., Malabon (in front of Meralco)
How to get there: If you’re from 2nd Avenue Caloocan or any place along the route of Gasak-Recto jeeps, just tell the driver to drop you off at Meralco in Concepcion, Malabon. Jamicos is just in front of Meralco.
