FoodMama Payatna had Irish Beef Stew, Spanish Chorizo Pizza, German Sausage Sampler, and Wagyu Sausage at Poco Deli Ayala Triangle Gardens

5

I enjoy eating in the ATG branch of Poco Deli. Great ambience, wonderful service, and the food is consistently good. My only complaint is the hard bench seats. Not exactly inviting to sit and enjoy dinner.

Nice hearty soup--the wait staff split one order into 2 for me and my friend to share.

FoodMama Payatna had Lumpiang Ubod, Adobong Pusit, Monggo Guisado, Crispy Hito, Laing, Milky Way Halo - Halo, Lavazza Coffee, and Ube with Macapuno at Milky Way Cafe Pasay Rd.

The crepe is so light and the sauce is just right! This version of an old time classic is perfect in our sight! (Bow!)

Is this branch still open for business?

3

I've passed by this location every week since April and the Rai Rai Ken has been closed and replaced with a bank. Such a pity because we liked the food there.

Excellent Sizzling Bangus Belly, Prime Cut

4

We ordered watermelon juice, diet Coke, pinakbet, tinapa rice, fried bangus belly with green mango salad, sizzling bangus ala pobre, coffee and turon for a total of P1094. Everything was very good, better than we expected. The stars of our meal were the sizzling bangus belly ala pobre and the turon which was crisp and hot and sprinkled with sesame seeds. Bravo!
The ambiance leaves a lot to be desired, though. I hope this restaurant makes enough money so management will upgrade the decor and acoustic properties.
We will be back!

wrote a review for Melo's South Triangle

Won't Ever Dine Here Again

3

We had heard that Melo's was a steak place so when a local groupon voucher was offered, my husband availed of enough for 4--he and I plus my parents. We made reservations and looked forward to a meal that was touted as surf and turf. The Quezon City venue is quite nice, with wooden walls instead of cement, and the tables looked dressy with their white clothes. Immediately, the waiter informed us that the deal was for a couple to share a fish entree and a beef entree, not fish and steak on the same plate. We could hardly believe this as the voucher stated that each diner would have an appetizer, soup, salad and surf and turf. The manager came over to apologetically say that this was not the intention of the voucher or Melo's. Since we were already there, we decided to proceed with the meal. Our disappointment increased as the food was served. The portions were comically small. The chicken pate in a tiny dish (the kind used to put soy sauce and calamansi in) was supposed to suffice for 4 adults. The salads were so scarce that it looked like one serving had been divided among all of us. Finally the entrees came. The beef, advertised as Angus, was a paper-thin strip. The fish entrees were a bit better but just not the quality one would expect from an establishment that is supposedly of good quality. A good steak, especially Angus beef, should be at least half an inch (ideally 3/4") thick. Then the cooking doneness can be properly tailored to the diner's request.
My halibut was actually pretty good--the skin was light and crisp and the flesh cooked through but still moist. All the cut vegetables served with our main dishes were drowning in butter or margarine, though.
In the end, we all agreed that if felt as if the Melo's management resented giving us a good meal. We were P3000 poorer and much wiser. It's too bad dining establishments don't look at these group vouchers as a way of marketing their food and service!

Dependably pleasant

4

We eat at this branch of Shakey's at least every other month. Over the years, we've been pleased with the service, food and value for money. We also eat at the Shakey's on Congressional Ave in QC.

Twist and Poolside Restaurant

4

There are 2 eating places in Sugarland open to the public. Both places serve the same menu. We preferred the indoor dining for freedom from flies, even though the airconditioning was arctic.
The breakfast buffets provided a good value meal with basic standards. Our favorite alacarte items were the pancit molo negrense (even better than El Ideal's), penne with Italian sausage, pancit sotanghon and moist chocolate cake. We plan to dine here at least once everytime we visit Bacolod.

We had chicken binacol, adobadong alimusad, lutik (yum!), a pork chop dish with veggies, rice, drinks and bananas foster. Everything was very good. Service was excellent. This is my new favorite restaurant in Bacolod.

wrote a review for Clawdaddy Centris Walk

We had everything but crab

4

3 of us went in for a late lunch, using groupon vouchers. We ordered a caesar salad, oysters Rockefeller, a seafood pasta dish, a half rack of baby back ribs and drinks. The serving sizes were most satisfactory. We enjoyed the food. The 2 waiters who served us were helpful in suggesting what to order and in serving the food, making sure it was hot. My only complaint was the coffee tasted burnt, but the waiters provided fresh milk and brown sugar on request which helped improve the coffee flavor. I'm coming back to dine at Claw Daddy for crab next time. I find the menu has a more appealing variety to me compared to Red Crab, which is apparently a sister restaurant.
P.S. We had just come from Roxas City where we feasted on crab so we steered clear of them on this initial visit to Clawdaddy.

wrote a review for Classic Savory The Link Bldg.

Delivery

4

On a rainy Saturday night, the last thing I want to do is cook and then clean up. So we called Savory at The Link and asked for a whole chicken (chopped), the Savory Shanghai rolls, and an order of pancit miki bihon Binondo. The order-taking process is painless and the food was delivered nice and hot within the time promised (30-40 minutes). I just wish Savory was more generous with their sauce (for the rolls) and gravy (for chicken). I also wish they gave more of the fried saba to go with the chicken. But the food was good!
