A new and interesting food cart has opened at Lopues Mandalagan Shopping Center. Kuster’s Smoked Ham and Food Hub is located next to Roli’s, near the grocery store entrance. What is unique about this food cart is all the food that is sold is homemade. The hams are personally smoked, the different breads are baked fresh and not bought for reselling.
You can order food to eat right away or order food to go. You don’t have to buy a whole ham, as you can buy as little as 200 grams or as much as a kilo. The smoked ham sandwiches are very good, so no need to buy grams or kilos. My wife and our son lean more toward Philippine food, so if that is what you also like, Kuster’s can fix you right up. Lumpia or Philippine spring rolls are excellent, as is the morosqueta rice.
I am really excited about the English muffins!! This is the first time I have seen English muffins anywhere for sale in Bacolod City. I bought 3 packs of English muffins at Kuster’s to take home. Smoked ham on an English muffin with a fried egg will really start your day out with a smile. Whatta breakfast! Mrs Kuster makes the English muffins from scratch and they are fabulous. I know English muffins very well and I have since I was a young boy. English muffins for breakfast were my favorites since the 1960s and still are today.
There are so many things you can do with English muffins! Eggs Benedict is one of my favorites. A poached egg on top of smoked ham or Canadian Bacon, on a toasted English muffin. Eggs Benedict! Cheese, cream cheese, jelly, jam, marmalade, Vegemite, butter or your favorite sandwich spread will go well on an English muffin. Liver pate will work. I’ve never tried it but bagoong, or shrimp paste, will work, too!
It seems that every month in Bacolod brings us new places to eat and new places to buy food. I am busy trying to keep up with the all new places!
