For fsmily dinner last night, my sister & brother inlaws suggested we go to SSC. I'm like.... What's SSC? Apparently, it stands for Shawarma Snack Center, a Middle Eastern Restaurant in Manila. My first impression, am I in heaven? Are these clouds? Cloudy much?! Well, no, im not, I am in Malate... its not cloudy, its just smoky much on their entrance coz its where they smoke the meaty-goodness food they are serving.
What we ordered & my review:
Kabsah Lahem (Lamb) - Sorry, i dont eat lamb so im not sble to tell you based on my own tastebuds 128517 but my husband, sister inlaw & brother inlaw like it 128522They said the lamb was cooked perfectly & no aftertaste effect hehe

Kabsah Chicken - This i tried. Its like Biryani Chicken Rice (if tour familiar with Indian food) but not spicy. Its yummy!

1k BBQ Mixed Grilled (Chicken & Beef) with Falafel Bread & Chappati bread served with Yogurt, Hummus & Baba Ganoush Dips with pickled veggies on the side. - This is s winner mesl for me 128513 Since i love bread, i really enjoy the Chappati bread dipped in Hunmus! 128523128523128523

All their juices & smoothies are made from fresh fruits. We ordered Orange, Watermelon, Banana with Yogurt, Ripe Mango & Green Mango - its Delicious! 128523128523128523

I posted our receipt for price guide to make your budgeting easier 128521 (since i wasnt able to take pic of the menu haha)

Food - 5/5
Service - 4.5/5 (The staff still tried to be attentive despite a very busy night)
Ambience - 4/5

Its a MUST TRY! I recommend you go & taste for yourself!

We saw the ad on their wall to have been serving:
#1 Sisig in Manila by Spot.ph (Crispy Sisig)
#3 Sinigang na Short Ribs and Watermelon by Spot.ph
And so we tried it. We ordered set meals of:
Crispy Sisig, Mangoes & Tomatoes as sides with Tinapa Rice
Sinigang Short Ribs with Watermelon, Pinakbet as sides with Plain whote Rice

and here's my review:

PROS:
βœ”οΈ affordable price for a combo meal
βœ”οΈ Service was good & fast

CONS:
❌ The CRISPY SISIG is NOT crispy at all but it was Hard & Chewy! So disappointing
❌There was no Tinapa in Tinapa rice nor did it taste tinapa at all
❌ The Sinigang with Watermelon doesnt taste like sinigang at all. Maybe because we were ecpecting it to be sour/tangy but ended up to be sweet foe our taste.

Me & my husband enjoyed our food trippin in Bacolod province before so were excited to try this resto. We ordered La Paz Batchoy Special, Paa (Chicken Leg BBQ) Garlic Rice Set & 2 Sticks of Pork BBQ Grlic Rice Set. Here's my review:

PROS:
βœ”οΈ It was very near our Airbnb place - The Beacon
βœ”οΈ The Chicken & Pork BBQ are tasty
βœ”οΈ The price is affordable

CONS:
❌ 128078 on their service. Staff are not that attentive. I asked for Napkins coz there was none in the napkin holder in our table, the staff noded... But it never came.
❌ Chicken size & Pork BBQ slices are quite small
❌ The La Paz Batchoy is quite disappointing. It was not hot as im expecting when served & it was so bland.

(was so hungry that i havent got the time to take pic of each food haha)

First time to try their Iced Coffee & it was good 128522

PROS:
βœ”οΈ They have an "Anytime Meal" combo good for two people perfect for me & my friend. We ordered combo#1 which is composed of your choice of 2 Classic Donuts & Hot or Cold Coffee and its just P110! 128522
βœ”οΈ They are using Paper Straws which is pro-enviroment 128522

CONS:
❌We wanted to have one hot & one cold coffee, unfortunately, the crew said it should be the same. So we ended up having both cold coffee. It would have been better if we can opt to have hot & cold.
