A major event happened the day that we ate here. It was planned. A proposal to one of my best friends. We weren’t even supposed to have lunch here. But a cry for help from my friend’s soon-to-be fiance brought us there, moving our lunch to this place. I have heard of this place. Something kind of artsy. Or a bar. Something like that. But it was my first time in. 🙂
As soon as you enter, you feel an eclectic vibe going on. Mismatched chairs. Wall of art/graffiti. A random shelf with random books. You name it. I wasn’t sure what the food was, but we settled in, ordered some lunch and ate.
I had some kind of pork belly with dirty rice, Ara ordered fried chicken with waffles and coleslaw, and Anna/Kars had soup with some pork tenderloin and spinach. I’m obviously bad with names. Priced at around P300 per dish, with ample serving, it was good enough. I liked how my food was different. It wasn’t what I expected it to be, with very spicy rice, and crunchy pork belly, almost like lechon kawali. I tried Anna’s dish, and it was like roasted pork tenderloin, drowned in cheesy gravy over a spinach bed. And since I had to finish mine, I was not able to try Ara’s anymore, but it looked generous.
For lunch, the place seemed out of the way. It is located in a corner building in Fort, rather far from everything else. It had another restaurant beside it, which I gather, livens up also mostly during dinner time, along with the other restaurants in the building. Must try the other places here though.
The food was good, the vibe was different. But somehow, it’s not a restaurant I would excitedly go back to, oddly enough. I feel a bit lost lunching here. Perhaps it’s the almost empty restaurant, I just am not sure.
