Food will always be a good experience to me. I chanced upon one of the restaurants in Ayala Triangle Gardens one Saturday morning; just a random choice for breakfast. But wow, the food was delish! People say you come back to places when there is still more about it that you want. Well, the foodie experience here was what made me come back.
Simple Lang, a Filipino restaurant with a “twist” sits along the trail of restaurants in the middle of the business district of Makati. The hustle and bustle of the busy city life makes this go-to food house a refuge for gastronomic comfort and unforgettable foodie experience.
Under the Raintree Group of Restaurants, Simple Lang came to life because of the millennial generation, which loves to experience beyond what’s common. With its red and white theme and diner-like verging formal dining ambiance, the restaurant stands as something appealing to the millennials. But, of course, it isn’t just the millennial that is being catered. It’s just the foundation of what’s making Simple Lang “simple lang.”
To Carmela T. Sison, Groups Marketing Manager, the variety of food was mixed-up in a way to make everything new, interesting, and unique making the food experience unforgettable. The simplicity of experience is seen in how things can are all tossed-up and “twisted” without losing the essence in them. This is what Simple Lang is all about.
To have some sort of food-taste measure, I came up with a foodie scale. I brought with me 3 colleagues, who are all foodies, to give the dishes a test.
Here is our foodie scale:
1 – I have tried this before
2 – I can probably try this next time
3 – Good. I can probably have another taste.
4 – Wow… Can I have more??
5 – Oh-my-goodness. I just forgot my name.
The dishes we tried were choices made by the Supervisor, Jasmine King Chua, considering how sellable and tasty they are. These selections are Simple Lang’s “best.”
The Crispy Black Pepper Squid at Php 230 is one favorite of most customers. The crunchy, tender squid in tasty batter was just enough to stimulate one’s palate.
Foodie Rating: 4 – “Wow…Can I have more??”
The Fresh Lumpia Roll at Php 95 is definitely a Filipino favorite. It resembles the traditional Filipino Fresh Lumpia.
Foodie Rating: 3 – “Good. I can probably have another taste.”
