Angels' Kitchen is owned and managed by five women with passions for cooking and baking. We got to meet with one of them, Ms. Maizie Qua, who handles more of the admin side of the restaurant. She told us that the recipes used at Angels' Kitchen come from her partners - from the starters to the desserts. These women met during their daughters' days in ICA, which led to them offering cooking classes in Mandaluyong, and eventually releasing a cookbook in 2006! Talk about a talented bunch!
Complimentary starters:

Melba Toast with Chicken Liver and Pistachio / Tuna Olives Pâté
You haven't even ordered yet, and you're already full! The tuna olives pâté has the strong flavor of olives, while the chicken liver pâté is more subtle. It didn't taste as liver-y as I expected, so it's still worth trying for those non-liver lovers. ;)

Soft Shell Crab with Mango Dressing
Oh my gosh, the soft shell crab was so good! The entire thing is edible, so there's no need to crack the shell to get to the meat! It was crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, and goes so well with the mango dressing they paired it with. I just wish they had bigger servings of this because I was left wanting more!

Beef Taquitos with Crispy Wanton

It's a make-your-own taquitos platter! This is one starter that I bet even kids will enjoy. Diners can choose to top their crispy wantons with just their favorite ingredients (I know some people don't like tomatoes), but I still suggest putting them all! Angels' Kitchen gives us generous servings of ground meat, cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes with every order. The crispy wanton remained crunchy the entire meal, so that's a plus as well!

Kielbasa Sausage with Onions
Sausages never looked so good! The Angels took something simple and turned it into an appetizing treat! The sausages were delicious, and more flavorful than I expected. It's one of those dishes that's perfect for when you need a little comforting. Have some beer too while you're at it, yeah?;) I'm definitely getting this again next time!

Crispy Boneless Bangus Fritters in Sambal Oelek
I'm not a huge fan of fish, but I really liked the way this was cooked. I'm glad it wasn't oily or malansa after frying, and that they served it with a different sauce, the sambal oelek, which is a sauce made from chili peppers. I usually encounter fish dishes with some kind of creamy mayo sauce, so this was a welcome change. It's a lighter, albeit spicier, alternative, but that's what I like about it.

Beef Salpicao
Another great comfort food. I don't think I've ever met a plate of beef salpicao I didn't like - so if you're looking to order something that's a sure win, get this. Things to remember: meat has to be tender and flavorful, and should be accompanied by lots of mushrooms and garlic - and guess what, Angels' Kitchen got all of that right. Personally, I think that a restaurant that fails to cook this, fails in general. It's often considered as an appetizer, but I totally recommend eating beef salpicao with rice.

Parmesan and Caesar Glaze Dory
The moment they placed this on the table, I knew I was going to like it. Gaah, it was heaven! For the longest time, baked dory with cheesy pesto has been my favorite way to eat dory, but now, I think it's this one. More than the parmesan cheese (if you've read my other posts, you'll know how much I enjoy anything with cheese in it), I loved how they added lemon to it - and not just to lessen the lansa, but to actually enhance the flavor. The creamy, lemon-y, and cheesy dory with crisp lettuce leaves, and bacon bits was a great combination overall.

Lamb Curry with Apple Raisin Chutney
I love curry, but not so much lamb, so to be honest, I had some apprehensions about this dish. There's just something about its flavor that I don't like. But this wasn't so bad. In fact, it wasn't bad at all. The meat was soft and sweet, and went well with the curry, though I would have liked the curry sauce with a thicker consistency. It was also milder than most I've tried before, but then again, I guess the sauce had to be mild since the lamb already had a strong flavor to it. The dish came with some apple chutney on the side, which I thought went great with the lamb as well.

Pinakbet Rice with Lechon Kawali and Chocolate Bagoong
Their award-winning signature dish! How often can you say you've eaten pinakbet rice? This dish is very Filipino, but in a way it's not, because Angels' Kitchen veered away from the usual way of serving it. Instead of laying it out with plain white rice, they've combined the two elements together to make an amazingly flavorful plate of pinakbet rice! The viand here is no longer the vegetables but the three huge chunks of fried lechon kawali you see above. Let's not forget the chocolate bagoong it came with. Yum!

Lengua Con Olivada
You know how when you were a kid, you used to eat everything, but now, not anymore? Well, ever since I found out what lengua was, I stopped eating it. For those who don't know, it's actually ox tongue. It's a really yummy dish, often served with mushroom cream sauce. It's been years since I had last eaten lengua, but I tried it again that night at Angels' Kitchen, and I'm back to loving it. I totally understand how ox tongue can turn someone off, but you know what, it's worth trying. Try a small bite. If you don't like it, then fine, don't eat any more. But if you find out that it's actually good, then at least you have a new dish to come back for (and you don't spend the rest of your life avoiding a dish you would've loved haha).

After our meeting in Ortigas, went to Ortigas to try their pakbet rice, barbeque pork ribs, and a lot more.

It was amazingly delicious! I really loved it! :) I want to try their creamy carbonara next time.

Their service is good too!

my friends and i have our usual Friday lunch meeting and we didn't know where to eat. i wanted it somewhere in Greenhills so it would be in the middle of where we all are. our choices were either here at Angel's or at Konbini. which were both in the same building. I chose it in this area because it's near ucc so my friends can smoke inside a cold place.

one of my friends said he hasn't eaten here yet so I decided to eat here.

when I arrived i was already late but i was there first. we didn't have a reservation but the waiter still gave us a table.

we ordered:
Gambas 128077128077128077128077128077 big shrimps were served. not too oily.
Lengua 128077128077128077128077128077 this is what the missus always order. it's good and soft. it had some chorizo, mushrooms and green peas.
Beef Curry 128077128077128077128077 it's a red curry type of dish. I don't like curry very much. i only eat it when there's no other food around. this curry is delicious. the beef was soft.
Laksa soup. I didn't eat this as I'm not fond of laksa.
Mackerel 128077128077128077128077 I'm not sure if the way of cooking was fried or grilled. but it was very nice.

ate here for Valentine's dinner last night. the slow service was understandable because the place was full. but the very warm air conditioning was not an excuse.

Love to eat their Bangus Sardines for breakfast.It includes Fried Egg, Garlic Rice and drinks like Hot Chocolate, Coffee or Orange Juice.

The food price is a bit expensive.But the food is good.

I recommend to anyone who wants eat breakfast at Angel's Kitchen and their breakfast meals.Their breakfast meals are so good even the Wagyu Beef Salpicao breakfast meal.Their breakfast meal is good for 1 person.If you can't finish the breakfast meal, you can share your breakfast meal with someone.

Sunday breakfast meeting was pleasant at Angels'. I had the arroz ala cubana... Perfectly cooked...! Comfort breakfast indeed...!

My friends got the wagyu beef tapa, the pancakes with turkey bacon, the tocino with garlic rice and egg. The tocino was skewered (2 sticks worth) and my friend enjoyed it thoroughly (he told me so).

Brewed coffee is good at this place. Desserts are awesome (Oreo cheesecake for one of the little ladies with us... Huge slice!).

A bit pricey, yes, but quality food!

They were a bit understaffed for a busy Sunday but wait staff were very nice and apologized if they failed to assist immediately.

Will always keep going back to this place..! :)

Up front I have to say. It's a pricy place. But it's pleasant & quiet & they have great desserts.

Loved the lemon shrimp pasta & the unagi pasta.

Leave some room for banana cream pie!

I don't know what took us so long to try this place...

Love the vibe of this small resto. It's like crashing someone else's dining room. Menu has both Spanish and Filipino items. None of those pretentious, fusion dishes that try so hard to be half this or half that but end-up with a substandard dish that only looks fancy on the surface.

The Beef-Pork Pochero was perfect. Meat was fork tender and the sauce very savory. We just couldn't find a suitable pair for this dish so we just ordered the pochero. The Malakoff, a chocolate sans rival, was really good. The chocolate drizzle tasted like expensive chocolate. ;)

Love this place. So homey and straightforward. No pa-cute interiors. Just really, really good comforting food. :)

Spent Thursday brunch at this restaurant. My second time. This time I ate the Mediterranean vegetable scramble...Yummy. It was quite heavy. Good size of veggie cuts mixed into my omelette (not the chunky intrusive cuts). Salted mine because I like my salt. :) My friend tried the tuna florentine on toast with mornay sauce. Coffee refills were good because I had a long night prior to brunch. :) I thought it would be quieter that day but the place was packed considering the long weekend (expected people to pack up and leave Manila haha). Nice experience as always.

this is a very cool, laid-back hangout. i've had their lunch menu more than a few times and am abdolutely positive that almost every dish they offer will find a fan base. the pinakbet rice and the parmesan dory with caesar glaze remain favorites.

this is the second time i've had breakfast at angel's kitchen. a few choice picks for me are the adobo rice, the wagyu tapa, tocino with tinapa rice. the pancakes were not bad and might just be the thickest pancakes you will see this side of town.

and then the glass case calls out. their desserts are consistent and Peanut D is absolutely right, this is one of the best mango cream pies in the city. if you ever buy the whole pie or have a chance to see the pie whole, you'll know what i mean. the half dome looks like a sunrise. the apple pie is pretty solid but what will endear you to it is the caramel sauce that goes with it. the sauce is good enough to be a dessert on its own.

the place is comfortable, the food accessible and price reasonable. no wonder it's on a lot of people's lists of go-to places in the neighborhood.
