Me and my family were finding for a place to have dinner at Evia, we came accross Another Story, and my tita wants to try because the place looks really nice. Honestly, I was hesitant at first because of its low rating here in Zomato, but I still gave in.
We had Another Story Set, Steak Set, and Paella. Everything was tasty, all the meat were soft and tender, but the Paella tasted very ordinary, I don't think Paella should be cooked that way. Overall we had a very nice experience, the servers were very nice and accommodating, the place was insta-worthy, serving size was okay, the steak, chicken, and seafood were all good. So I do not understand the reason behind the low rating.

Change has come! And so it did happen during my visit at evia town center. The mall already got restaurants at the second floor. It was a family gathering and i was bit excited to go here when achi mentioned we'll be trying the new and beautiful restaurant at the second floor. I definitely knew it was Another Story she was pertaining to.
I still hurriedly drove from QC to alabang although knowing that there's no traffic. I was anle to get a parking slot at the town center itself for 25 pesos flat rate.
I arrived a little too late that is why could not afford to take full photos of the food. The place was beautiful indeed. A little floral and enchanted. It is kind of similar with the coffee project interior. Seemingly a cafe, there were no power outlets available. No wifi as well. The servers were a little busy thus their little coldness.
roast chicken (whole) @595php
This was the first dish na naabutan kong buo pa. The chicken was cooked perfectly; and it was smothered by mushroom gravy. I liked it. But ordinary.
babyback ribs with BBQ sauce @595php
Not so tender. The bbq flavor was not that elaborate. The bones were big. It was not so satisfying. I did not try and the fries anymore assuming that they were just ordinary.
fish and chips @495php
I love the fish. No fish taste. The breading was light and crunchy. The mayo dip was ordinary. I did try the fries on sides this time--ordinary a bit lumpy. The apple cider dip was good. Though when we asked for another cider round, they did not give because they forgot in their business. We asked twice, still.
bread appetizer for free!
We loved the dip!--or whatever oil base sorcery that was. This time they gave us round two.
another story salad (share) @595php
We also loved this dish. I was the one who ordered this. I love the huge prawns and shitake mushrooms. Hiwever the cherry tomatoes weren't that fresh. Walnuts were optional. The house dressing was not that impressive.
I also saw the story behind the restaurant written by the owner Ica. Ica grew somewhere at the south where she learned how to cook thru their mad. Cooking has become second nature to her that every dish served here has its own story (hers that is. Lol); thus another story.
There's a common CR inside the restaurant. Abundant in tissue rolls. A wash area outside the CR.
For me, the interior was really good. I kinda love this kind of interior. However, might be true in its name it's another story--another restaurant that is playing in mediocrity. I suggest they do something with the dishes like manam does.
I still liked it anyway. This is good for family and friend gatherings. 🏼

I've been seeing pictures of this place on IG and was really interested cos it looked so nice and quirky! Scheduled a dinner with my friends a couple of weeks ago and was finally able to try it.
It's located at the second level of the new wing of evia lifestyle center. True to the photos, the place was really tastefully decorated, with a lot of vintage pieces, tiles and furniture integrated into their design. Hubby and i spent a few
Minutes admiring the decor (and thinking how expensive it was).
Tbh, food is a bit pricey. Almost everything is 275++. Menu is not that extensive but what kinda annoyed me was each dish had a particular 'story' behind it. Ok I'm sure it's part of the charm and the owner really wanted to emphasize that all of the dishes are from their home and family, but some of the sentences were grammatically incorrect sana Na edit ng mabuti? It's just my opinion, sorry!
On to the food, we got the another story salad, angus beef belly, wild rice risotto, salmon and pork Milanese. The salad serving was good but for the other dishes, I feel masyadong mahal for the serving size. Like the beef belly and salmon were both 595.. The beef belly was good but nothing beats H cuisine. Mejo matigas yung ends. Salmon was good too but yeah small serving. Pork Milanese was just ok for me. Over all, food is just ok, nothing special IMO. That's when we concluded that kailangan Na ROI Ang magandang decor
We decided to get dessert there to even out the experience. We got a slice of their tiramisu cheesecake, salted caramel cheesecake and red velvet cake. Both of the cheesecakes were good! Buti nalang! The red velvet was just ok Mejo dry.
Total bill was 3700 needless to say I don't think I'll be coming back here maybe for the cakes nalang.

We initially wanted to watch a movie but Me Before You wasn't showing yet (And we all thought it would be out by June 5 🙄).
We opted to go to Evia for a change. When we got there we didn't really know what to eat or where to go. So we just walked around. At the mall center, I saw cute seats and asked my siblings and Maverick Christopher P if they wanted to try it out. ️
The place was amazing! It felt like dining right out of the pages of a story book. You could be Alice having tea with the Mad Hatter and the March Hare, or you could be Belle enjoying a good book and a slice of cake with the Beast.
I must say, the interior was just so magical. I actually spent more time looking at the decors and cutlery more than the menu!
We ordered their Spaghetti Bolognese, Fish and Chips, Salmon and Oreo Cheesecake. Everything was cooked to perfection! It was made with love and appreciation, that's for sure.
I loved that their pasta dishes had two options; solo and for sharing. Their fish dishes were really good too, I personally love the salmon we ordered, it wasn't overpowered by herbs and seasonings. Quantity and quality-wise you definitely get more than what you paid for. ️
Service was impeccable! Everyone was on their feet and was very helpful with our decision making. ️
We're happy with our experience and we're surely coming back to try out their other dishes.
