Pengees Restaurant boast of having the best Kalderetang Kambing (Goat Meat Stew) in the whole of Panay Island. Although I am not a fan of Kambing dishes, not tasting this famous Capiz dish is a big no-no for me. What's my verdict?
Well, if I haven't known it's a goat, I would have mistaken it for a beef because it really tastes like beef. There is none of that rancid flavor that I associate with goat dishes that is why I dislike them. And the dish is tasty and spicy enough perfect for either a cup of steamed rice or as pulutan (appetizer) in drinking parties.
As for the place, Pengees exudes a mixed vibe of surfer's place and tropical tribe with those colorful statues made of stone. I just find it odd because the place is located on a highway and I do not see any beach or sea nearby. Maybe, its an added attraction because most diners there took a souvenir shot beside these statues.
Nevertheless, if it is Kalderatang Kambing you want, Pengees may have rightfully claim to have the best one in Panay.
