Review: Best crispy pata in town at Jamicos Restaurant
If you are looking for a place where to eat or order a cripsy pata that you will never forget and regret, you should try visiting Jamicos Restaurant in Malabon City.
It was raining incessantly on a Monday evening when The Eatventurers tried revisiting Jamicos Restaurant. The consequent flooding made it difficult for us to commute but despite all the challenges we encountered to get there, everything was worth it when we entered the restaurant and tried their crispy pata.
Jamicos is formerly known as “Judy Ann’s Crispy Pata.” It was established in 1972 and has been a food destination in the city since. Yes, it is included in the local city government's tricycle food tour!
The restaurant offers other Filipino dishes but their best-seller and house specialty is the Judy Ann crispy pata. It is a MUST-TRY!
The crispy pata was too affordable at P550. For a large pata, it is already good for a small family of five to six. You can order jumbo at P450 and super jumbo at P550.
It is served on a platter topped with slices of pickles, tomatoes, and cucumber.
What sets this crispy pata apart is that it was perfectly crispy-fied.
The meat was very tender and falls off the bone that you no longer need a knife to munch on all the goodness. The skin was crispy and flavorful.
We also loved their sauce! You can choose from their homemade soy-vinegar combo with onions or their sweet and sour sauce, either is good as the crispy pata was already best we tried so far, even if it is not dipped in any sauce.
Jamicos' crispy pata can be devoured dined-in or take-out. We advise you to be patient when taking out though because it has high demand from loyal customers especially during holidays and other special occasions.
We promise that cheat day would be so worth it when you try Judy Ann Crispy Pata.
