What we ate:
Chicken Quesadilla, Shrimp Pasta Aligue, Beef Lasagne, Parmesan Crusted Fish and Hickory Smoked Spareribs
Taste = 4/5
– The quesadilla was awesome. The cheese was melted really nicely and went well with the chicken and veggies that were inside. It came with a creamy sauce and salsa that had cilantro, Lyn’s favourite ingredient, and the whole dish was nicely done. The shrimp pasta aligue was heavy on the aligue and cream but it tasted good and there were a lot of shrimps. I think only a real aligue-lover can finish the whole dish. The beef lasagna was really beefy and the pasta was cooked well but it wasn’t on the sweet side. Lyn had the Parmesan Crusted Fish and she said that it tasted like tilapia but it was not fresh. I tasted it and agreed. It had an accompanying white sauce which we couldn’t figure out if it was soup or sauce. It was too heavy to be soup but too bland to be sauce. The spareribs were good although I’m a bit sceptical on whether they really smoked it using hickory wood logs or chips. Nevertheless, the meat was very tender and had a generous amount of barbecue sauce. The corn kernels on the side were a nice touch. We also tried their iced tea and it came with a sweetener in a glass carafe. I’m not sure if it’s honey but it really went well with their iced tea. I really liked the idea of having control on how my drink tastes.
Service = 4.5/5
– The servers were attentive and they provided good service. The food didn’t take too long to serve even though some dishes arrived later than others.
Ambience = 4/5
– There were a lot of paintings on the wall about Filipino idioms and gave the diners something interesting to look at and probably break the ice for those who are on dates. The dining area was clean and well-maintained but unfortunately, the restroom was located outside the restaurant.
Value for money = 4/5
– The prices were good on some of the dishes but not on others. To illustrate, the Hickory Smoked Spareribs was less expensive than the Parmesan Crusted Fish.
