Frustrating to say the least. Found this recommended with a higher rating that most restaurants, only to find myself disappointed.
Perhaps it is the unusual fare of crocodile included in the menu, or the tilamok (woodworm) also being offered. After all, these are the reasons why we went here in the first place. But to find, not a quaint, provincial city restaurant, but a full-on resto seating about a thousand people, it was quite shocking.
So we ordered crocodile sisig, minus the tamilok since they’ve run out, plus some chicken in ginger sauce, and lechon kawali. All regular filipino fare.
We first tried the sisig. It tasted like any other soft sisig (as opposed to crunchy). Nothing fab, nothing different. Would totally skip recommending it to friends. The lechon kawali was as normal as it can get, with some Mang Tomas served beside it. You can’t even make your own lechon sauce? And the chicken? It was okay.
So, we got what we went for, the crocodile sisig. But again, no need to recommend this. I would entirely skip this place if you ask me. Skip. Totally.
