*This restaurant is now closed*
I love breakfast, its my favorite meal of the day with eggs coming in its many forms. Agahan is a hole in the wall restaurant that serves all forms of breakfast meals to satisfy whatever craving you may want from healthy to the oh so delicious unhealthy ones, any time of the day.
On a lazy Sunday morning, together with Fran and Paul, we arrived at around 11am, just in time for brunch. The place is bright and cheerful with an array of primary colors adorning its walls, furniture and even place mats. This will definitely give you a visual pick me up whatever time you may choose to dine there.
They have a menu that includes the usual suspects like cereals, pancakes, toasts and since its here in the Philippines, the silogs (fried rice and eggs). Forgoing complicated plating, Agahan just dishes out plate after plate of delectable food.
Lauren started off with a glass of Chocolate Milk (P50). I guess it goes without saying the she liked the cold milk, since by the time I saw the glass it was empty.
She paired this with a Bacon Breakfast Set (P150), which consists of 3 pieces of cute stamped pancakes, bacon and scrambled eggs. Lauren got a kick out of those impressions on top of the pancakes and I’m sure all kids will like them.
Irene’s choice was the Ham and Cheese 2-egg Omelette (P90), it’s served with toast that they playfully sliced into strips and pieces for easier eating (a nice touch).
I got the Longganisa Silog (P140). The longganisa was on the sweet side, just the way I like it and was mostly meaty with only a little fat inside to give it flavor.I would have liked the option to have my egg sunny side up. I love to put the egg on top of the rice an break the yolk, letting it flow down into the rice and mixing them all together.
I also ordered a plate of Tapa (P110) on the side. Since I’m the only one who eats beef, I had to finish it. It went well with a dash of vinegar but I still prefer my wife’s tapa which has been fine tuned to my taste.
Other extras we had to share were Chicken Nuggets (P70) and Itlog na Maalat (Salted Egg) w/ Tomato (P30). The chicken nuggets were ok but their presence had me missing the bbq sauce from McDonald’s. The salted egg and tomatoes were a nice match to my silog, one of those things I crave every so often. I just wish the tomatoes could have been sliced differently.
Fran and Paul got Tocino Silog (P120) and Tinapa Silog(P110).
Agahan is a great perk me up anytime of the day, offering a bright and homey ambiance and simple and unpretentious breakfast dishes. After eating here, you might want to visit New Hatchin around the corner for some Japanese food stuff.
