Sometimes after a long, busy day at work, I am often on the look out for a quick and affordable yet delicious meal. Just recently I discovered that Red Ribbon Bakeshop in Carson has the perfect meal deal that is convenient, good in value and tasty!
Red Ribbon Bakeshop has what they call “Sweet Meal Deals.”
Their sweet meal deals start at $6.99 and come with a soda and a slice of cake. There are several different sweet meal deal entrees to choose from. You can have a palabok or dinuguan meal.
Palabok is a Filipino thin noodle dish with shrimp flavored sauce, pork cracklings, green onions and garlic. Diniguan is Filipino pork blood stew with garlic, chili and vinegar.
They also have arroz caldo or rice porridge. If you want a bigger variety you can choose a smaller version of those entrees and pair it with Red Ribbon’s famous chicken empanadas. All value meals come with your choice of a chocolate, ube or mango cake.
For my trip here, I chose to get the palabok for my main entree. Red Ribbon Bakeshop’s palabok is their signature noodle dish. It is very popular with the restaurant patrons and for good reason! It’s has very savory sauce and the pork cracklings toppings give even more flavor to this dish as well as give it an extra special crunch.
I got the petite version of the palabok so that I could get the mini empanada on the side. Red Ribbon Bakeshop’s chicken empanadas are great. It’s a crispy pie filled with tender pieces of chicken.
For my slice of cake, I got their mango cake. Red Ribbon Bakeshop’s mango cake is made with moist white chiffon cake and is topped with butter cream. There is also real chunks of mango throughout the cake. This cake alone puts the “sweet” in the sweet meal deal.
I really like Red Ribbon’s sweet meal deals and I’m sure many of you who are on the go during the busy week will like it too!
