Beverage- “Lycheeno” P120.00 really excited about it because it tasted like lychee and it was sweet but tart at the same time, and I love that they leave some chunks of it in your glass.
Entrée- “Crispy Hito with Enseladang Talong” P175.00 this was a simple but hearty dish of every Filipino which is why I chose it and the way the bagoong with rice as their side dish compliments each other very well.
Dessert- “Chocolate Tableau Cheesecake” P160.00 it was too sweet for me and I was not able to appreciate it as much because I could hardly taste the tableau; maybe add bitter chocolate to it… just my opinion.
Class B-C of students, businessmen, family of class B mostly, less of C, and clothing were business wear, casual, and semi formal.
Both male and female waiters served in their restaurant and they both wear black shirts and pants.
No name Tag- He does not know how to up sell their dishes but was very friendly and was smiling at me. When I was ordering he was very attentive, with eye contact and also repeated the orders to me. Answers requests immediately like: when I ask for knife he gave it right away with a smile.
It was laminated to avoid breakages and the cover was showing immediately like one long ½ size of a card. There were English and Filipino names with descriptions on what it contains. It was simple and yet it fit their ambiance of modern style
Yes, it is worth to stay in this restaurant; however, I would probably spend this every four weeks because of my budget and the distance of this place as well. But as long as you are leaving around this area then by all means no problem here. They don’t give any comment cards so they would probably want you to tell them personally about how their food tastes like.
nice food shots! Agree that resto pino is one of the best - we tried the kare kareng bagnet and the crispy tenderloin tapsilog - here's our review and some foodshots: http://dateplaces.ph/pino-resto-bar-maginhawa-teachers-village/2009/12/
