I went to Cocoy's one time my taste buds were bummed with endless italian, american and other foreign cuisine.

Most of the time I see senior citizens, factory/construction workers, students and white-collared workers in this area. The place is non-discriminating which accommodates different people with its not too posh not too shabby interiors and white cafeteria style tables. Their staff is nice and all wear hairnets and all so you know that this place is sanitary. You wont have to wait for more than 5 minutes for your order because they always prepare it on the spot. Cocoy's being a pares place is good for their pares, however they also serve siomai, siopao, and bulalo among others.

I usually order their pares meal for 80 pesos. It is a saucer of pares in a sweet brown sauce and a mangkok of rice. It usually comes with chili garlic if you wanna add spiciness to the lot. Their pares although having a small serving is really soft and flavorful. It has hints of star anise but it doesnt overpower the beefy taste I always look for in beef dishes. Their siomai which is priced two for 25 pesos tastes nearly that of the chowking siomai. It goes well with their rice, priced 40 pesos if ordered in a meal (siomai-rice. The combination i havent outgrown since college).

I am not ashamed that I go to Cocoy's wearing my college shirts and shorts. This no-frills place always satisfies my hunger and taste buds.

Always my go-to place since high school. Sadly, their quality had gone down a little. Not as tasty as before, but still one of the best pares places.

I don't know the history of this place but i'm sure it's open for many years now. It is very evident by the look of its walls, chairs, tables, chipped wall paints and all. Known for it's bestseller Beef Pares, Cocoy's was able to attract a lot of customers near the area or even from different places.

I remember during Typhoon Ondoy, they are the only carenderia opened along Visayas Ave, we had dinner there along with our kapitbahays since there is no electricity and our homes are being flooded that time.

It is a self-service eatery, don't expect anything fancy. There's no staff cleaning the tables and you have ask someone first. The place is not super clean, actually it is kinda dirty. 128517 but hey, they have good food! They have pretty decent meals.
Their pares is a 128077 for me. Meat is tender and i like it more with calamansi. Love their rice too 128525 we tried their sisig one time but most of the slices are 'taba'. Their bulalo seems to have more balat and taba than buto. 128517 but if you're looking for a cheap place to dine, this place is perfect!

This good place has been around since I was a kid. They have never expanded but, it seems that their set of Bulalo Pata, Sisig, and Pares have withstood all seasons.

They are a great example of quality carinderia where all walks of life can dine in. You can't expect a fancy place with this but, their food is pretty much convincing. They have great offers of food from a simple mami to a grandeous serving of sisig and silogs.

Their prices range from Php 65.00 to a little less than Php 200.00 and I assure you to have a satisifed tummy especially if you are into the carinderia/Filipino food.

Cheap thrills?! Go to Cocoy's. Known for its pares along Visayas avenue near Montessori. The resto started almost 20years ago, so the place looks old. You'll see all walks of life dine there128077 A lot of steakhouse tried to compete with Cocoy's cheap price & quality steak but they fail to last. I know i said they're known for their pares but i really go there for their tenderloin steak (120pesos) 128513 add some toyo-mansi and red siling labuyo eventhough there's gravy already 127835 yummy! While my mom gets the boneless fried bangus (100pesos).

Ps: self-service po dun 128522

I was a bit dissatisfied with their fried rice, there's a distinct taste that is not good. But the beef pares and chopsuey are still superb! And this is the first time that i have tried the asado pares, and it was also good!

Pares the way it should be served: no frills. Very spartan, even shabby interiors, and don't expect resto-level service. You know a place offers great food when white-collar people are seated next to people who wear pambahay all day long.

If you're looking for that typical pinoy breakfast? This is the place to be!

From tapsilog to mami..sisig,siopao.siomai, camto,pares? What more do you want from a local kainan that is just so affordable!

This place is known for their beef pares, but I am done eating pares for so many years here so my new fave here is the sisig. Also the camto is delish if you're looking for something hot for a cold rainy dinner night. Also the prices are so affordable. You can bring 100 pesos and go home so full like you've eaten twice the money you brought. Although,the place is not a nice looking food place but what would you expect from a local kainan? 128540 still this place is a must try for the food lovers out there!
