The location of this restaurant is an area in Greenbelt where I don’t frequent much. I feel that it’s this part of that mall where it’s just hidden. You’ll have to go around that corner to discover the restaurants ahead. One such restaurant that is situated there is this Filipino restaurant that definitely has this very casual feel.
The complete name of this restaurant is Lumu Beerhouse and Filipino Kitchen. Yes, it’s a beerhouse. When you check out its interiors, it does have this very casual and laid-back feel. It’s like you’re dining in the streets where having a cold one is very welcomed. I can just imagine the scene at night where this place really becomes alive.
Their take on nachos was just awesome! This one had taro chips, kamote chips, and chicken adobo flakes drizzled with honey garlic mayo. It was topped with onion leeks. It geared on being a little sweet which balanced the tangy flavor of the adobo.
On the dishes above, we paired it with some rice in order to fully taste the flavor of the dishes. Sadly, the dishes above didn’t stand out. The most okay of them all was the Love You Kaldereta which had goat meat in. It was a little spicy which was good. I found the Puso ng Saging to be bland, and the Tinumis tasted ordinary.
Did I expect much from this restaurant? Not so much. I didn’t expect though that I would be underwhelmed. Upon checking their menu, I had a hard time looking for seafood dishes and a purely vegetable dish. But hey, it is a beer house so the perfect dish for that would probably be mostly red meat. I guess when you have a bottle in hand, you wouldn’t think much of the taste. Or it might ignite some taste of the dishes.
