Another must “TRY” is the bangus paksiw , fried rice, egg with grilled eggplant  and the paksiw sauce . I prefer on how they marinate the bangus ( milk fish ) not to sour unlike the commercially available . Just Right !

This breakfast meal is a combination of egg and ensaymada

Angus beef tapa

 ” Tapa” meal is one of the all- time favorite in the restaurant. I like the way it is marinated and soft texture .  I also like the achara ( pickled vegetable)



Hashsilog is a breakfast and a pulutan combined into one. With potatoes , corn-beef and topped with egg served in sizzling plate . You need to mix them before eating them.

The restaurant sitting capacity is between 60 to 80 at any given time .  With the advent of the Christmas season and Ayala triangle lightning this coming weekend. It is best to make early reservations and to come early before 6:00pm or past 9:00pm.

Note:  It is worthy to note that the couple discourage using msg to flavor their food which is good for health conscious individuals  . The restaurant is using a soy sauce brand which uses natural ingredient in their fermentation process.

The restaurant also accepts caterings and bulk orders .
