Small, cosy family run restaurant serving authentic Filipino dishes (a fusion of Spanish and Oriental ingredients and influences) to a number of regular Filipino families and customers.
Order one of the tasty sweet cocktails such as the Don Moreno (Filipino rum, ginger beer and lime), grab the food menu and let the exotic names and ingredients inspire you:
Arroz Caldo (rice with beef tripe, topped with one egg), Sinigang na Baka (tamarind soup broth), Bicol express (belly pork cooked with chillies and coconut milk), Sizzling Pusit (grilled spicy squid served on a sizzling hotplate), Daing Na Bangus (marinated fried milkfish), Ilocano Pinakbet (mixed vegetables).
Everything will land on your table almost simultaneously, a joy for your stomach and your eyes, so be prepared jumping from one dish to another till you have no space left, but take your time: everyone seems very friendly and comfortable here sipping their drinks and chatting the night away long after finishing dinner. No one will ask you to leave.
