Kalifornia Roll – kani crab sticks, fresh mangoes and QP mayo – favorite #1. Php 330.
Electric Eel has tempura shrimp, unagi, crab salad and tempura bits. Php 390.
Falafel is humus, tzatziki and homemade naan bread. Php 180. There definitely is something for everyone here.
Black Bikini – Jamon Serrano & cheese sandwich with black truffle jam. Php 295.
Another plate is Broken Eggs, fried potatoes and chorizo. Php 250.
Pizettas are thin and crispy. This one has bacon, mixed mushrooms and caramelized onions. Php 330.
This refreshing salad called the chicken cobb, has bacon, blue cheese, ranch dressing and avocado. Php 270.
The Baby Reubens sanwhich has Kitayama Wagyu pastrami, sauerkraut and swiss cheese. Php 450. If you think it looks good, wait till you taste it.
Monte Cristo Benedict is grilled ham & cheese sanwich, poached egg and hollandaise sauce. Php 320.
This is my favorite #2 just because its a burger presented so differently and tastes really great at the same time. Patty melt – grilled Angus beef patty, caramalized onions and American cheese. Php 340.
We’re just midway and we’re already toasting to great food.
Personal favorite #3 is the BLT which means Bacon, Linguine and Truffle Cream Sauce. Stuff like these can put a smile on your face right away. Php 380.
Since I’m a fan of many textures and taste exploding in your mouth, the Chicken Souvlaki probably gets that on the peg. Its tzatziki, tomato & red onion salad and herbed butter rice. I’m getting this again when I go here pretty soon. Php330.
You know what else brings more out of life, its the BBQ Angus beef riblets that has coleslaw and creamy potato salad. Php 440.
Really, these stuff were meant to fill you up! The meatloaf and gravy main dish has mashed potatoes and garlic buttered green beans. Php 390.
To end it off with desserts is the Banana Foster Sundae, banana cupcake ala mode. Php 230.
And one of the best I have tastes is the Trailer Park Monte Cristo, deep fried with PB&J. Really. 😉 Php 240.
They even have an after dinner menu which serves the nightclub crowd with Filipino breakfast, sushi, pizzetas and other odds and ends.
This is definitely a place where you can bring your friends and family and they will end up smiling and feeling full like this.
