But before we get to the meals, let’s talk about first impressions first. The first things you will see upon entering the place are the tables carrying logos of imported alcohol brands! It’s a quirky design idea for a place that serves primarily local dishes, but it’s charming in its own way. Wooden high chairs surround what appear to be steel barrels of Jack Daniel’s and other brands, repurposed into tables.
Now, let’s talk about the quality of the food. Aside from the hefty servings and the tasty recipes, you’re guaranteed really fresh food because nothing here is pre-cooked! They’d only start cooking the meals after you order, so you get it at the best quality. It does mean you’ll wait a bit, but for the affordable price and the taste it’s a great deal. They have everything from appetizers, main courses, and desserts. They have shrimp, squid, pork, vegetables, pancit, lumpia, crabs, and many others! They also have servings for those dining solo or as a group.
Of course, true to the theme of the tables, the place also offers imported wines and liquor alongside local brands.
