What we ordered:
Sisig and Chicken Barbeque
Taste = 4/5
– We were travelling South from Manila and we were looking for a place to have lunch when we happened to see this restaurant. Suka means vinegar and Sili means chilli pepper. We both like vinegar in our food so we took a chance and went to this restaurant. The sisig was nice but it was mostly pork cheek fat and only had a little cartilage. It was on the spicy side but when I added soy sauce, it tasted much better for me. Lyn said the Chicken Barbecue tasted good and was tender but there was no taste that distinguished it from the others. What was special was the side: ripe mangoes with bagoong (fermented shrimp paste), onions and eggplant. The taste was a blend of sweet, fishy, fruity and a little spicy – really good. Both dishes were served with cut onions, tomatoes and kalamansi, which we mixed in our individual ratio of soy sauce and vinegar. We didn’t detect any extraordinary taste from their vinegar but it tasted a little better than the commercially sold ones.
Service = 3/5
– It sometimes felt as if we were begging for service with one of the waiters. The other server provided good service.
Ambience = 3/5
– The place was clean but it was a little dim even though we were in the restaurant during the middle of the day. It didn’t really feel like they wanted customers at that time.
Value for money = 4.5/5
– The prices were pretty fair considering the taste and serving size of their food. I truly hope they could improve their service and ambience.
