A new friend brought me to this newly opened hole in the wall resto in Salcedo Village in Makati. I wasn't really expecting much since he mentioned it was Filipino food which is not on my list of favorite cuisines
The first thing that stuck me about the place was how small it was. It was very cozy and homey and thoughts of intimate gatherings came into mind. It was perfect for a date, a very small party, or even business meetings. The place was conducive for small talk and making you feel like you were at home but with a butler and chef to cater to your whims.
When we were just about to order, they served free appetizers and it's cute how they renamed classics.

It was actually pretty good. I like the tanginess of the aligue and the keso offsets the taste. It was a perfect combination.
We ordered KareKareng Crispy Tadyang, Veggie Soup, and Lechon Sisig.

And here we are with the owner and the chef. The owner is the guy in the forefront on the left side and the chef is the one beside me. Hats off to you sirs!
And thank you for the complimentary dessert you sent over. I loved it!
What I really liked the most was the way they would call you ...
"How do you like your food Senyorita?" Senyorito?"
