Have you ever heard of a spaghetti with peanut butter? No? Well, you can find one at Peanut Butter Company or PB. Co.
The first PB Co. branch I tried was the one in SM Mall of Asia, that was like 2 years ago, the next one is in Paseo Center. Food here is a bit pricey, but they offer food in half portions. My favorite, the Classic Spaghetti (Regular -PHP135/Half – PHP75). This is one of the best tasting spaghetti I’ve ever had and probably the most unique. I mean really, how often do you see a spaghetti with peanut butter? Hence, it was one of those things I had to convince myself to try. Good thing it was a decision that proved to be worth it.
It tastes kind of like this famous Filipino dish, kare-kare. It’s sweet, a bit sour, with just the right amount of saltiness to balance the flavor. The sauce is rich, flavorful, and god damn it I want one right now!
Now onto my target, Milkshake (PHP145). I originally intended to just get the regular one but curiosity got the better of me so I ended up with the peanut butter flavor. It wasn’t bad at all! It tastes kind of like a chocnut- flavored frappe. By the way, you have the option which peanut butter flavor you’d like to be put in your milkshake. In my case, I ordered the safest, white chocolate.
Speaking of White Chocolate Peanut, I also purchased a small bottle of it for PHP55. Other peanut butter flavors available include Cinnamon, Crunchy, Butter, Chili, Curry, Green Tea, Sesame, Sun-dried Tomato, Dark Chocolate, and Cardamom.
The Peanut Butter BLT Sandwich (Regular PHP – 155/Half – PHP85) has bacon, lettuce, and tomato, slathered with their Sun-Dried Tomato flavored peanut butter. While the peanut butter works with spaghetti, I cannot say the same with this sandwich. Both the peanut butter and the bacon are salty resulting to a weird biting taste.
The BBQ Wings (PHP165) is 6 pieces of spicy messy goodness.
Next to cheese, peanut is my favorite spread so I am excited to learn that there are other ways this peanut-based food paste can be used aside from of course, kare-kare. So if you haven’t tried the spaghetti with peanut butter then you know where to go.
