Penong's specializes in barbecue, seafood dishes, and grilled food. When we dined at Penong's, we ordered pancit canton, the chicken and pork barbecue combo meal, and the pork belly meal. Their combo meals or value meals comes with unlimited rice and atchara or pickled papaya.

The pancit canton was really good. It had a lot of ingredients. There was pork, squid, shrimps, cabbage, onions, bell peppers, and lots of other vegetables.

The chicken thigh barbecue was okay, the skin a little too charred for my preference. The meat flavor was good and just enough juiciness. The pork barbecue however was a bit hard and the size is not that big.

The pork belly was grilled on a stick and this one was evenly cooked although a little too dry. The portion is also a satisfying one, not too big and not too small.
