Plants and an old door guard the entrance to this place of simple pleasures harkening back to old times.
Once you enter the doorway, you’ll be faced with a narrow hallway lined with antiques.
On to the gustatory portion of the program. Food is served “carinderia” (cafeteria) style. Most dishes are P49 except for the beef dishes which are more expensive.
We ordered Adobo, Pechay, Beef Bulgogi and Chicken Pastel together with one and one half plain rice. I liked the bulgogi but it was not sweet korean taste I was expecting, its more of a filipinized bulgogi, but it was still good. The meat was tender, though they were a couple of fatty pieces. I had a piece of the chicken pastel, I expected it to be creamier.
We had 3 bottles of Coke Zero to go with our meal. This is my first time to see and drink Coke Zero in bottle form and I was amused to see two different labels, one colored and one black and white label.
