My First Solo Travel Experience in Iloilo: Food trip Edition: What You See is NOT Always What You Get

First day of travel here in Iloilo, I head on to taste this talked-about local delicacy called KBL, short for Kadios- Baboy- Langka.  I knew I wanted to get this for breakfast, but I just didn't know where to get one.  Receptionists from the hotel advised me to take a jeepney to SM.  Right across the mall is Dapli, which is a local restaurant known to serve tasty local food, which of course includes KBL.

Finding My Way

I finally arrived in my destination, without getting lost.  So far, so good.  I was deeply pleased with myself for that. The moment I entered the store, I was welcomed with an array of delicious local dishes, some of which were familiar to me, some were not.  My brain at that time was focused on finding KBL.   As soon as spotted  it. I immediately placed my order.

I then got myself a spot and waited for my food to be served.  It really looks good on picture so I was already anticipating to eat it.

A Let down

Few minutes after waiting, I finally got what I ordered!

The actual KBL I was served with.

The moment I saw it, I didn't know if I would get angry, or laugh.  I do know though that I was a bit disappointed.  Oh well, at least, I tried one already.  It tasted like pork sinigang, minus the usual veggies you could find in it.  What it does have though is the unripe langka (jackfruit) and kadios(I'm not exactly sure what it is, but it sure looks like a mongo seed to me).  

Bon appetite! :)

Have you had this experience before?  I'd love to know about it.  Do share in the comment box below. :)
