    Tito Chef Restaurant ACROPOLIS: Cosmopolitan Dining at Affordable Prices

    by nixca316 Updated Oct 7, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    It's no secret that my favorite restaurant south of Manila is Tito Chef Restaurant and All Things Culinary. Besides proximity, it offers great food and service with a great atmosphere. People from all over the metro and nearby provinces would visit the place to eat world class food at an affordable(I don't mean cheap) price. Sometimes they even brave the heavy traffic because of the delicious food.

    Now, some of them don't have to do that anymore. A second branch was born last 11th of May 2013 at the Microtel Inn and Suites by Wyndham at E. Rodriguez, Jr. Avenue (C5), Brgy. Bagumbayan, Quezon City, Philippines.

    Upon arrival you would be greeted by the hotel's friendly doormen and they would lead you to the left side(facing the front desk) where you could enjoy wonderful meals, chat with friends, etc.

    If you're a hotel guest, of course, you can have room service, but I would advise you to go dine there because the place just gives a nice feeling to one that enters it.

    There are function rooms for meetings and if you want to "brew" or "cook up" something special.

    For more details you can visit their website.

    Red China by Super Bowl: Authentic Chinese Favorites across Asia

    by nixca316 Updated Aug 17, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    If you are one of those who had the patience to read the stuff I wrote on my profile page, then you would know what I think about fusion. Fusion for me is a totally different "culture" altogether and could be considered local. I love fusion dishes, but I also want the REAL THING. Who doesn't?

    When you are craving for something authentically Chinese that is not so hard on the pocket, I can recommend to you RED CHINA, by Super Bowl. They can be found at the garden side at the first level of Trinoma in between Pancake House and Oki-Oki.

    This newly opened restaurant is an original concept by Richmond Yang et al with the help of some friends from a well known chain in Singapore(classified) who trained the staff. They offer Chinese dishes from across Asia like Singapore, China, Hong Kong and our very own Chinese Dishes. They retained some of the famous Super Bowl of China dishes, but "leveled it up" a bit. They are proud to present varieties that were not reconstituted to fit the Filipino palate.





    SERVICE

    The servers are very helpful and attentive

    TARGET MARKET

    Average Filipino Family (Even if this is the case, I believe snotty well-traveled individuals will enjoy eating here too)

    Sambokojin: Korean-Japanese Grill and Buffet (2)

    by machomikemd Written Apr 4, 2013

    part 2 of my two part tip with more pictures inside.

    Sambokojin is the newest kid on the block on the Japanese-Korean Combination Grill and Buffets that are sprouting around the metro manila area due to the influx of a large south korean expatriate community and tourists going to the philippines. They have four branches at present and this is their branch at Quezon City.

    It competes with the more numerous Yakimix Chain of Japanese-Korean Barbecue Grills and Buffet and they offer similar meals but with Sambokojin concentrating more of the grilled meat cuts which are mostly imported from australia and new zealand.

    Zambokojin is part of the Kamayan Restaurant Complex in West Avenue with the Kamayan Restaurant and Saisaki Japanese Restaurant. The most packed will be the new Sambokojin Restaurant.

    Operating Hrs. Mon-Fri 11:30am – 2pm / 6pm – 10pm
    Sat –Sun 11am – 2pm / 5:30pm – 10pm

    Favorite Dish: there are a lot of ready made buffets like shrimp tempura, chicken kara age, japchae, bulgogi, kalbi chim and more at the restaurant but the best is to cook the assorted imported meats and local seafoods in the smokeless grill and adding up the marinade which you have many kinds of korean and japanese marinades and dipping sauces at your table. there is an endless selection of grilled meats galore and an extensive dessert selection.

    the price of the buffet per person is 640 pesos (clean plate price) plus 80 pesos for the unlimited drinks like sodas and iced teas.

    be sure to call them in advance for reservations as the area gets really packed at lunch and dinner times.

    by machomikemd Written Apr 3, 2013

    Taco Bell Started in the philippines in 1982 at quad in Makati City and I had my first taste of this wonderful taco but unfortunately it went bust after 2 years and left the country. I came back 8 years ago and is slowly expanding and having more branches but they still have no branch in makati city. Well everyone knows what taco bell is all about! my favorite is their to die for crunchy tacos with the semi spicy sauce that I can eat 6 crunchy tacos in one sitting.

    this branch is located at the 2nd floor of the trinoma mall in north avenue quezon city.

    opens: 10:00 am to 9:00 pm everyday

    Favorite Dish: what else but the crunchy soft tacos at 69 pesos a piece and the 1/2 pund beef burrito at 99 pesos and don't forget the cheese quezadillas at 139 pesos an order couple with margarita or strawberry slush at 39 pesos an order.

    Jonas Pares: Original Pares Restaurant

    by machomikemd Written Apr 3, 2013

    Jonas Pares has the distinction of being the one who invented the popular local dish called the "pares" which is made from slow cooked beef shanks filled with some beef fats and cooked for 12 hours over a charcoal fed fire hence the soft and melt in your mouth texture. Pares is the pairing of the beef stew (similar in taste to Chinese Nanking beef stew with hints of star anise and 5 spice powder as the inventer is a filipino-chinese) with their version of fried rice, filled with fried egg and chinese longganisa. the Restaurant was founded in 1979 by an filipino-chinese matriarch named Lolly Tiu and started here in Mayon Street In Quezon City and now have several branches around the Metro Manila area. The pares are now copied everywhere and you can see many copycat beef pares stalls around the country.

    Their main branch is at Mayon Avenue has a large dining area

    Hours M, T, W, Th, F, Sa, Su: 6:30AM - 9:00PM

    Favorite Dish: they have just a few menu items and the best seller is what else but the beef pares which costs 140 pesos an order (large servings), they also have chicken pares and pork pares at 130 pesos an order and other dishes such as lechon paksiw at 150 pesos and order, beef mami and siopao and more.

    Starbucks: Great Coffee & Pastries

    by cyndymc Written Nov 19, 2011

    We went to Starbucks after lunch at Gerry's Grill. Starbucks needs no introduction, after all, it is an iconic coffeehouse. It offers not only coffee, specialty breads and coffee cakes, but free wifi, too. It is a great place to go for brunch or after-meal coffee and dessert.

    Favorite Dish: I like their frappucino.

    Gerry's Grill: Great For Family Get-Together

    by cyndymc Written Nov 19, 2011

    Gerry's Grill in Cubao, Quezon City offers the same food fare Gerry's Grill has become known for: local favorites, grilled seafood and even exotic cuisine. Although the Cubao Branch is rather small, the ambiance remains inviting to families and groups getting together. We went there to meet my youngest daughter and her family, and although we weren't that euphoric with the food (compared to other Gerry's Grill branches in Metro Manila), the staff's warm, smiling faces compensated for the long wait to be seated and served food.

    Gerry's Grill is also a popular place for those who simply want to meet for beer and pica-pica.

    Favorite Dish: Brispy Pata

    Taco Bell: Mexican Fast Food

    by cyndymc Updated Nov 19, 2011

    Taco Bell is a welcome place for Mexican food lovers. At Taco Bell, you don't have to spend more for good-tasting Mexican food. Don't expect too much of ambiance and service at this Mexican restaurant though. It is fast food style so tables and chairs are cramped and very few, sometimes you can't help but stand by a table to wait for other diners to finish eating. Service is fair, but could be slow especially during weekends. My grandson kidded that it is slow fast food. Food servings are small, but probably justified by the cost.

    This is the only restaurant where I was reprimanded for taking pictures ;(

    Favorite Dish: Fiesta Taco Salad, Crunchy Taco Supreme, Grilled Chicken Burrito, Nachos Supreme

    BlackBeard's Seafood Island: Pirate inspired Resto

    by kemisteryoso Updated Jul 14, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I think Seafood Island can be found on every big mall in Metro Manila. But I tried the one in TRINOMA Mall in Quezon City. They offer seafood and grilled favorites.

    Why pirate inspired because almost all of the waiters really looked like pirates even the ladies! Some of them even have beard and have long hair tied in a ponytail.

    Try their boodle feast that comes in various sizes. The picture I uploaded is actually good for 4 persons. Boodle feast is like how our friends from the Military eat when they are in combat or mission. There’s a big square tray covered with banana leaves that fits your table. The rice (java) is at the center and on top of it is some kind of shellfish soup and around the rice are your viands (grilled squid, St. Peter’s fish,pork, crispy prawns, crab, vegetable and condiments).

    There was also a band singing while we are eating. If you love to sing and have the guts to do it just raise your hand and they will give you a discount for singing with them.

    Favorite Dish: Boodle feast

    Kopi Roti: Simple Coffee

    by Lensky Updated Mar 26, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    They only serve one kind of coffee, one kind of tea and one kind of hot chocolate but so far, everyone that I know who came in here to taste it found it great. They have lots of stuff paired with coffee like their Kopi Bun, their own French Toast and a lot more. Very popular withe college kids.

    Favorite Dish: Of course I like their Kopi (coffee) paired with buttered toast sweetened with a bit of jam. The weirdest thing here is that it is great if eaten with their soft boiled egg with a bit of white ground pepper and some syrup (see picture), which of course is optional. At first, its so weird I would not even touch the eggs coz its soft boiled but when I tasted it, I'm hooked!

    Everything At Steak: Cheap But Delicious Steak

    by Lensky Written Mar 26, 2009

    I'm not a big fan of beef but I just can't get enough of the steaks at this resto. Small but known for its delicious but very, very affordable T-bone steak is well known only to true foodies. They have other things on the menu too like open sandwiches, pastas, burgers and fish dishes.

    Favorite Dish: T-bone steak right off the grill smothered in their house gravy with a serving of mashed potato. Best enjoyed with a glass of red iced tea.
