We’ve passed this place many times on our way to Charlie’s Grind and Grill on the same street. We finally decided to try it lunch one time after always seeing the heavy amount of smoke coming out of the grill in front.
We went inside, sat down and looked at the menu. The place was not nothing special but it was clean and well lighted. While looking at the menu, I found out from the brief history writeup that the restaurant started way back in 1941.
We ordered all their specialties, per advise of the waitress. Starting with Pork BBQ with Java Rice (P90), this was nicely grilled and the meat was soft. The java rice was very good and did not include little bits of meat, just the way I love it. While eating I noticed a frame on the wall that they were part of a magazine’s pick for top 10 bbqs in manila. I agree its one of the better bbqs I’ve eaten but its less sweet.
Irene opted for Bihon (P80) in lieu of rice and paired it with a stick of pork bbq on the side. I had a taste of this and I loved it, although the chicaron topping only served as a distraction when it wedged itself into my teeth. The bihon and the pork bbq were the stars of this meal, and we were already talking about coming back and having just those two dishes.
I couldn’t help ordering some more bbqs on the side, specifically Liempo (P100)and Quarter Chicken Leg (P100). I did not like the liempo very much, the marinade had too much vinegar for my tastes, there still nothing that compares to Manang’s Liempo. The chicken on the other did not have much flavor maybe because the marinade had not seeped into the meat inside yet. Although when I ate the leftovers at home the next day, it tasted a lot better maybe because I did not eat it with some other flavorful stuff.
