I recently had merienda at Mati's. I was initially apprehensive because I thought they were one of those places that close at noon so I was pleasantly surprised to know that they were an all day kind of place.
They offer burgers and pizza as well as different kinds of pasta. It goes well with coffee if you're there for the afternoon and beer if you're there after dinner.
The Pizza Gambheretti was definitely different. I think the anchovies gave that zing and for me, I loved it. It was really interesting and unique. I've never had anchovies on my pizza before and so this was something new.
Now I was informed by the staff that their best sellers were the Truffle Bone Marrow and the Balut Aligue so I had to try it. I wasn't really into the bone marrow because I was never a fan of it. My family would always try to steal it from each other but I'd be like, go ahead. However, this bone marrow was sooooooooooo different.
Confession: I ate this all by myself. I finished this by my lonesome self. It was not oily nor icky. It was just so tasty and delicious. Seriously, you need to try this.
As for the balut aligue, I gotta say that I am a bit biased. I like balut and so I liked this one. For those who may hate balut, I still suggest that you try this. It doesn't have that icky chick thing. Promise.
Overall, I would say that Mati's is definitely a place worth going back to. They had so much to offer that I would definitely want to discover how their other dishes taste like.
