Ababu Persian Kitchen / Middle Eastern Food in Manila

Where I’m from, in San Diego, California, you usually go for some Mexican food when you need to feed an insatiable hunger. It’s also the best cure for hangovers and for late night after-party tummy growls. But here in Manila Philippines, you never go wrong with some Persian food!

Ababu Persian Kitchen is one of those hole-in-the-wall type places that starts to feel like home. I had my good friends Nico from 27+20 design boutique (https://2720.tv) and Katwo, vocalist from the band “Duster.”

Anywayz, here’s the thing, we totally wronged you guys by not showing more footage of the food once we got it. Sorry… we were all starving and it smelled soooo good while they were making it and then it came and we just stopped filming and started eating… damnit, Harold!

As I was saying, we wronged you by not showing you how MUCH food they served us on one big plate! Best of all was that all that was just about 100 Pesos! So we got this plate full of buttered rice, tomatoes, onions, veggies, and loads of meat, for about P100. OMG!!!

Have I said OMG yet? Coz, like, OMG!

So yeah, Ababu Persian Kitchen in Quezon City (QC) is definitely one for the hungry, broke and fabulous. Other than the awesome and tasty main courses, do also try out their Crispy Mocha Ice Cream! I tell you… that was one unsuspectingly good dessert. We were all just sort of looking around the table wondering why it was sooo good. It felt so wrong but it tasted so good. Definitely recommend it, Crispy Mocha Ice Cream, GET IT! I swear, those four words will change your life…. Crispy-Mocha-Ice-Cream.
