Conedor by Miguel and Maria is one of new restaurants in the Gil Fernando strip.

I wasn't too keen on trying 'em as i their flagship branch failed to impress me. So why am i here? Wedding anniversary of CMA's folks and they picked Komedor for lunch.

The menu is comprised of mostly classic filipino dishes and the prices are a lil steep (think Makati pricing). Some of the dishes served were:

| Bistek Tagalog
| Ginataang Sitaw at Kalabasa
| Sinigang na Baboy
| Aligue Rice
| Ribs

Everyone loved the veggies but i think the consistency of ze coconut milk is a lil thin compared to the others i've tasted.

The Bistek and Sinigang falls under the "just okay" category. No "wow" factor.

I didn't try the ribs but their servings are huge. The aligue rice on the other hand is such a letdown. I didn't taste crab fat - not even a fraction of it. Some parts of the rice didn't have the bright yellow hue. I dunno if the chef got too lazy to mix it in the wok, your guess is as good as mine.

Avotella Ice Cream. Avocado ice cream with nutella coated granola. This is probably the saving grace of my visit. I know there is not much artistry involved in this dessert but i like the fact that they decided to veer away from the norm and added a lil something on the ice cream. The nutella granola adds the crunchy element and works well with the avocado flavor.

Overall, i wasn't too impressed with Comedor. I'd still give them three stars because of the avotella.

Peace Out!

Beating the summer heat last Labor Day afternoon with my family with Comedor by Miguel and Maria summer specials .

Ordered their Halo-Halo which cost 100 pesos each then you should try their best seller Bibingka Ala Mode. Filipino pancake topped with home crafted salt egg ice cream , what a unique taste of ice cream 127848

Very nice and spacious place, place for comfort food.

Would love to try next time for their main dishes like kare-kare.

Service is good128077

When we heard of Miguel and Maria's sister resto, we were eager to try it. We finally got the chance a few weeks ago after visiting hubby's lola in Marikina.

It was dinner time on a weekend plus there was a party in the function room so we had to wait a bit for a table. They informed us that there were some tables that were going to bill out soon so we agreed to stay even if we were 2nd in line. They gave us menus and told us that we could order in advance. That was a good thing as food came soon after we were seated.

Hubby wanted a salad and I was more than happy when he picked the Crispy Lechon Salad. I loved the crunchy generous pieces of Lechon and ate it with rice. Not a fan of vinaigrette dressing though.

The Sizzling Kare-Kare, supposedly one of their bestsellers, didn't look like much. It was too bland and I had to eat it with a lot of Bagoong. We didn't bother finishing this.

We hit the garlic jackpot with the Garlic and Squid. There was a lot of crispy garlic which I scooped up and mixed in with my rice. The squid was fresh and soft. I love how they were able to slice them so thinly. Since this was an appetizer, the portion wasn't as big so we had to order an additional dish.

The Ensalatang Bangus, although just a pahabol order, left huge smiles on our faces. The fish was fried to a crisp and the green mangoes, onions and tomatoes were perfect add ons. The dipping sauces were delicious. The dish was beautifully plated too.

I felt like I was in Disneyland when the not so hidden Mickey err Bibingka ala Mode landed on our table. It looked better though than how it tasted. The Bibingka wasn't hot anymore and it lacked flavor. I didn't like the texture either. The Salted Egg Ice Cream was intriguing but still not a fan of Salted Egg.

The place looks more upbeat, modern and airy compared to Miguel and Maria. It is more spacious as well and there are parking attendants or guards to guide you. Servers were very friendly and paid attention.

Although I have mixed feelings with the entire meal, I would love to go back for the Ensalatang Bangus and the Garlic & Squid. I saw a lot of Lechon and Crispy dishes on their menu that I would love to try.

Tried Comedor for the first time today. Ordered Chili Bacon Sticks (P220), BBQ Filipino Ribs (P250), Comedor's Crispy Pork Sinigang (P370) and Bibingka ala Mode (P120).

The place was busy as it was Sunday Lunch time but they must have had VERY few kitchen staff for the day as service was SLOW. There were enough servers..and the servers were attentive..but if you only have a number of people in the kitchen.. then the food will take awhile. Ended up waiting 40 minutes for our food to be served. By that time, there were already 2 groups who cancelled their order and left.

The Chili Bacon Sticks came first. At P220..I felt that the serving size should be bigger. I could hardly taste any of the promised cheddar cheese...and the bacon was not flavorful enough to stand out from the heat of the chili.

The BBQ Filipino Ribs, I could say, was their saving grace. Packed with flavor paired with the charred carcinogenic quality we Pinoys like, this would be a must try. It could use a little more meat, though. Still prefer Milieu's version.

The crispy pork sinigang had the Comedor name... but it does not compare to that of Locavore's famous dish. It was so-so. I kept on waiting for that flavor packed sour sting..that did not come.

Last on the list was the Bibingka ala Mode. Serving was small..and the bibingka tasted like it came from a box..then microwaved. The salted egg ice cream was good, though.. but I would have appreciated a little bit more serving.

Decided to have "two bots" with the husband before going home when we chanced upon Comedor on the way to Lilac. Since they serve beer and have a smoking area, we gave it a try. And what a great find! They have wines (you can have a sampler, half glass or full serving) because of this fancy dispenser they have.

They serve local beers ranging from P50 to P65 and the lone imported beer, Stella Artois for P140. For some grub, we got their lechon sisig which is great though a bit small compared to the usual sisig servings we're familiar with.

Service is top notch, probably because the place was not yet busy. I wish they would have the same service during lunch and dinner time. Place is much bigger than their sister resto in Lilac with more parking space as well.

Their menu is promising with Sizzling Sinigang and Salted Egg Crab among others. Will definitely come back!

Love how chill Comedor is! The place is bright, open, and very well designed - they have a nice modern dining area and a wide open space outside.

We were served a couple of their best sellers: bacon liempo, cheesy kare-kare, garlic shrimp, and beef pares.

My favourite: Bacon liempo - imagine crispy bacon strips in a basket. Such a simple and yet totally awesome dish! Also loved the garlic shrimps. The shrimps were big, succulent, and fresh. The cooked it with the skin on, and allowed the garlic flavour to seep through just enough to give the shrimp some umph.

This is definitely a good spot to visit in Marikina.

It was an unplanned lunch at Comedor. It just happened most of the resto near Marikina Engineering office was still close around 11:30AM. So we go around the area and saw COMEDOR. That time only 2-3 tables were occupied. I was shocked that past 12nn the restaurant was packed.

We ordered Bacon Liempo P220, Aligue Rice P120 (good for 3), Calares Fritos P190, Home Brewed Iced Tea P45

Food & Service was OK, ambiance was well lit due to glass walls, parking can be a problem but there are parking area along the road.

We had an after lunch meeting here and it was a success!

Thanks to my HS BFF for the LUNCH TREAT! 128522
