Food Trip: VFW Post 2485 Part 2

Siiiiiii,Part 2! haha! You're going to see more food this time....
I went back to the Veterans of the Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 2485, at the Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga with family and friends and since there were more of us, more food was ordered and shared :) If you haven't seen the part 1 of this post, you may read it by clicking here.


The food takes about 10-15 minutes to cook but it's worth the wait because at least you know that the food is not pre-cooked and reheated.  Here's a little palm reading going on while waiting for the food)
There's the lady taking our orders while I do what I do best...goof around... :) Jake finally graced us with his presence today. He missed our VFW dinner last time because he was busy.

I had my handy dandy Nikon SB-700 Speed Light today to make up for the dim lights inside the restaurant. It's different during the day though because lighting is very good inside. Joel and Jake ordered mango shake because it was pretty hot that day despite the rain showers.

This is their Pork Chop Dinner served with 2 pork slices and your choice of side dish
The Beef Stew or our Caldereta. When I was in Madrid, I told my professor that we have a dish called Caldereta which she was thrilled to know about because they too have a dish called Caldereta. Meaning we probably got our Caldereta from the Spanish (afterall, we were a Spanish colony for 300 years). They serve this with 3 pieces of crackers
 Chicken A La King
 Chicken Fingers
 They have an all day breakfast menu which includes this tocino meal. Tocino is sweetened pork slices, typical Filipino breakfast. This is what Ryan and I ordered :) They call this meal The Filipino Scout. It's a choice between Tocino or Longganisa (Longganisa is like pork sausage, Filipino style)
 Jake had been craving for steak for the past few months and because of their busy schedule, he could not satisfy his cravings, so this was his chance. an 8 oz Steak! :)
 My mum and my sister ordered Fish Fillet
Yummy Roast Beef
 Pork Barbecue and Chop Suey

 There were 15 of us today so we were seated in a long table. Since not very many people eat here, reservations weren't needed anymore. Maybe it's in a location that youhave to look for that's why. There's a map on their website by the way :)
