I really don't know why they closed shop in The Fort. :( I thought Naci was doing well. Huhu I really miss having dates and chill girls night outs there.

Anyway, thank God they still have their cafe in Greenhills. :) and they retained the same menu and even added a Japanese menu too for their Ramen house, NC Ramen. 128076 I got my usual Baked Pesto Salmon, which I shared with my grandma. I also got Lengua. The food was good but not as good as I remember it to be. 128532

The Caldereta Lasagna my sister got was good too. Something new I tried from the menu. And for dessert, the Pistachio Sansrival cake never fails. It's a tie with the Pistachio Stardust of Purple Oven, they both have their own thing going on. 128076

It seemed everybody is on vacation mode since we were the only customers during dinner. Ordered calamansi juice (P100), Manhi Yakult Yogurt (P175), Hainanese Chicken (P295), Steak & Cheese Pizza (P300) and Pistachio Sansrival (P150). Most of their dishes were very pricey and compared to the portions and taste it just wasn't justifiable. The pizza was so small and breaks easily (since this critic is fond of holding pizza by hand). The Hainanese chicken was obviously good for 1 person. When asked between 2 pizza's (to test their product knowledge and find out which is really better) it took quiet some time to finally have a decision. The only single staff available even forgot to bring out the utensils. So why the 4 star rating? It's simply because of the dessert on the picture. Not too sweet and just perfect for sharing. Definitely worth trying for dessert lovers.

I'm loving Cafe Naci's Pistachio Sansrival. Their Adobo Cannelloni, has always been, and will always be a favorite. I'm liking their Lengua Omelet.

Naci has been one of our family's favorite places. They originally opened shop in the Greenhills area before moving to the BGC. It came as good news when the family heard that they once again relocated back to Greenhills.

This visit was for breakfast after Sunday services. Back at their original home, the place is once again set to its usual cozy , small setting. Decided to try out their Lengua Omelette. Regardless if it was breakfast, we decided to get one of our favorite dishes, the Adobo Cannelloni.

The Lengua Omelette was a nice twist. Tender, lengua strips cooked in a flavorful mushroom base. Cut into strips and stuffed into an omelette. The breakfast dish was yummy. The meat was so tender and flavorful. A bit of improvement needed though on the omelette. We found the egg to be a bit to dry. The dish would have been perfect if the omelette was fluffier.

The Adobo Cannelloni was still divine. Still loving the minced adobo meat stuffed into cannelloni pasta, covered with rich béchamel sauce and topped with yummy, melted, stringy cheese. The salty-sour adobo filled cannelloni rolls deliciously balanced the richness of the white sauce and cheese. Not at all overwhelming but rather filling.

The Pistachio Sansrival was delicious. Layers of merengue sandwiched between nicely sweet whipped butter and generously sprinkled with chopped and whole pistachio nuts. Perfect with a cup of their brewed coffee.

We will be back for our favorite Naci mains. We miss their Caldereta Lasagna, Peruvian Chicken, Bistek Lechon Kawali, and Chef Ed's Pork Shank. Will also come back for more of the Adobo Cannelloni and the Pistachio Sansrival.

Welcome back to your old home, Naci!

Cafe Naci is now back in Greenhills!
From Connecticut Greenhills to 7th Ave Bonifacio Global City and now back to where they call home, the same street and same spot where I discovered them. Parallel to home, Naci continues to put emphasis on what they do best. Comfort food for Naci have been traced back to owner Nadine Nocom's family. The heart for good food is a natural characteristic of Nadine and her family. Their ideas to give more color and flavor to food have turned to reality in the kitchen of Cafe Naci.

First time at their newly renovated Greenhills branch, I felt a little saddened seeing a smaller space compared to their previous branches in Fort and Greenhills. The first Greenhills branch was also located at the same spot but this time, Naci was only given about half of its original size without the balcony where you can hang at night. Nevertheless, I was still looking forward to what the kitchen had in store for us.

The Food:
Bacon Liempo (Php 250)
Rate: 4/5
I know you don't want to miss out taking a photo of this crispy Bacon Liempo. Snap and shot immediately for a fresher and crispier bacon bite. This new star of Cafe Naci is an all-day breakfast that has been getting everyone's attention from the time they moved back to Greenhills. Bacon-sliced liempo has that thin texture, suitable as you eat with garlic fried rice and sunny side up or scrambled egg.

Tried other dishes like Monte Cristo sandwich and Cajun Mozzarella Cheeseballs.
Get out of your comfortable bed and take a trip to try Cafe Naci's comfort food!
Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner, they've got it covered for you!

Naci's back in Greenhills! 128513

One of my favorite comfort food places is back in Greenhills after its stint in the Fort! Same good stuff, but it brought its BGC prices with it. 128514

My go-to dish will always be the Adobo Cannelloni, which I've loved since I first got to eat at NACI. Rustic homey adobo flavor plus the ooey-gooeyness of cheese plus pasta (instead of rice). Oh and their garlic bread is pretty good too!

I felt a little adventurous and tried their cake shake. It is what it sounds like: cake, blended up into a smoothie. Tried the Brazo de Mercedes flavor and it was surprisingly good! You don't even realize that you're basically slurping up a slick of cake. 128517

Some of the dishes have been "downsized" like Chef Ed's pork thing. It's a bit smaller now, and looks like it's just good for one. Decided not to order it, but I so miss the once good-for-sharing huge chunk of meat on a plate.

Still.. I'll keep coming back for the cannelloni! 128513

I would say budget around P500 per head to include appetizers and dessert to share.
