What we ate:
Garlic Pusit, Sisig Pampanga and Choco Overload
Taste = 3.5/5
– Unfortunately, the Pusit (squid) tasted fishy. It sort of ruined Lyn’s appetite a little bit. It came close to being repulsive so we were only able to eat a spoonful each. Fortunately, the Sisig was great! Bits of pork cheeks and onions with a salty-umami sauce that had a touch of kalamansi juice on a sizzling plate went really great with warm rice. This made up a little bit for the poor squid dish. The Choco Overload was chocolate ice cream on top of a brownie with whipped cream and butterscotch syrup. Well, it tasted exactly like the description and there was nothing special about the taste. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t great either.
Service = 4/5
– It was almost closing time but the service was still good. However, there were times when calling the attention of the servers became difficult.
Ambience = 4/5
– The restaurant had an indoor dining area with lots of Filipino-inspired decor: brown bamboo wall decoration, images of Filipinos in formal attire, wooden furnishings, etc. The al fresco dining area was ordinary but the seats were comfortable.
Value for money = 3/5
– Because of the discrepancy in the qualities of their dishes and relatively high prices, we couldn’t really give a high mark for value for this restaurant. They should improve the taste and quality of all their dishes since there are too many restaurants in the area with much better quality dishes in the same price range.
