I’m amazed at how they were able to do the interiors on this one. The restaurant really is small yet it makes for one cozy and casual atmosphere. I especially liked this painting and the lights that hung from its ceiling.
We were served with complimentary bonete bread. I expected more pieces but it’s just one per head. My friend did request for another, and got just one piece.
All the while, I was thinking of sinigang when we ordered this. But it didn’t taste sour at all being that it wasn’t. Haha. It was still very tasty that you can taste the guava. Very generous too on the main ingredients added.
As recommended, we got this. It seemed simple and lackluster being that it’s adobo. How can you go wrong with it? Rather, how can one stand out among other dishes of this variant? But one bite of this, and you’ll say “yes, this is one of the outstanding ones”. Served dry, the pork was very tender and flavorful on its own. You can opt to have some of the soy sauce dip, atchara or that bitter gourd mix (don’t know what that is called). I preferred to have mine with the soy sauce, and it just enhanced the flavor more. Though the portion may seem small, it’s actually good for sharing.
I guess this u-turn was a good turn for me and my buddies. We got to experience some homecooked Laguna dishes that just warms the heart and fills your tummy. The place could get packed since it is small so it’s best to make a reservation. Perfect for get togethers, go make a turn at this kitchen to experience good Pinoy dishes. 🙂
