We missed eating Pinoy food, and happened to pass by Crisostomo one afternoon. Ordered Sizzling Linares (pork sisig), Leandro (laing with lechon kawali), and a cup of rice each. Although very unhealthy, we had a great lunch as our options complemented each others taste. Nothing memorable to be honest, but what I really wanted to review is the quality of their service, which for me is an equally important experience when dining.

Customer service could definitely improve. There was this one staff member who was walking around, looking at the walls, the roof, other people—basically everywhere but at us. So we had to constantly ask for his (or anyone’s) attention to request for things that should have been provided already, in the first place, ie., vinegar and toyo (since we ordered sisig, right?🙄), and rice of course, because who has ever served Filipino viand without serving the rice first OR serving them together. I mean who eats sisig cold OR without rice, for crying out loud? 🙄

I would have given a score of 2 if not for the saving grace of two or three of their staff members, one of which may be the manager. She was very warm, reminiscent to a tender mother who’s hosting a dinner with her daughter’s friends, and asks around how we are and if the food was good 128518

Would still give Crisostomo a chance in the future, but probably in a different branch.

I’ve been here quite a few times but I didn’t get much photos in. I like how they have their classic and re created Filipino dishes. Last one I had was their tinapa rice. It was so good I ended up having 3 cups. Their soup selections are must try. I had the tinola with my tinapa. Yum.

This is my first time to try here, craving for Filipino food and here I am, with hungry tummy and ordering,

🔸 Sinigang Burgos "Sinigang Na baka with Gabi"
🔸 Sinang con Laing "Gabi leaves with coconut cream"
🔸 Tinapa and salted egg fried rice

So here the food and for overall review,

128522 the soup, sinigang burgos, soooo sooo good and sour, generous for the vegetables and meat but not the soup haha~ because it's not enough and when ask for more, additional charge apply & it's half price of the full portion 🤔

128522 the Laing, creamy vegetable, but too creamy for me, the texture of the leaves, almost can't taste it, because it's too creamy, feels like eating a laing soup. But, but, the taste, no doubt, it is really good

128522 the tinapa and salted egg fried rice, hmmm, overall really good taste but, i expecting they gonna use organic salted egg hahah because when the food come, the color of salted egg (pinkish/reddisg) on the egg is really scare me for a while (i know, local salted egg those commercial at supermarket is normally the red one, but hey, it's crisostomo, expecting better than that)

So so, overall, taste is really, no doubt good, but could improve more..

For seven people, i ordered the ff: Aligue rice was so tasteful it explodes in your mouth and it literally matched w all the dishes i ordered, adobo rice and binagoongan rice was ok too, sisig was expensive and small serving kinda blah so was the squid, the dinuguan was goodie w the aligue rice but it would be better if it was crispy dinuguan and lastly i ordered bulalo which was ok too. Wasnt able to take photos of the dishes except for the rice cause we weee too hungry 128514

A friend of mine Invited me to dine for a late lunch at Crisostomo Eastwood. Reading through their menu is was like taking a trip to Noli Me Tangere lane as every dish is connected from that setting. For me the ambiance is elegant. CALLOS? PERFECT! it was so tender and tasty. The rest we had for lunch is underrated.
P.S. Price is not so friendly we end up for almost Php 2,500 including drinks and dessert so be ready.

So after fetching my aunt in the airport all the way from California, she misses pilipino food. And the answer for sumptuous meal for that craving is crisostomo... I love the interior... It's very cozy and the food is so yum. Ordered Laing with liempo, sinigang na hipon, binagoongan baboy. Love the squid torsillo parang Gambas style but baby squid. Thumbs up. Edam cheesecake was delish!

One date night at Eastwood, Paul and I had a really hard time figuring out where we should eat. We tried going to this Mexican place, then this chicken place, the another chicken place. But we're just not happy. We realized then that all we want is just delicious Pinoy food. So we went to Crisostomo!

Checked my looloo before entering and I was surprised to see mixed reviews about the place. There were comments about being overpriced, bad tasting food, slow service, etc. I got anxious. I got really, really anxious. I was afraid that our dinner date will be ruined by bad food! But you know what, I don't know what's up with those reviews 'cause Crisostomo is THE bomb. It's so good here!!!

We ordered these:
- Sinigang Gomez (Sinigang na Baboy sa Sampaloc) which we requested to be extra, extra asim. That's how we like our sinigang!
- Taba ng Talangka Rice. Talk about sinful rice!!!
- San Gabriel Chicken

We loved everything we had. The sinigang was perfectly cooked. It was maasim the way we wanted it. It had a really rich broth which complemented the Taba ng Talangka rice. The San Gabriel chicken with the delicious pineapple sauce is awesome. I'm getting hungry just by typing this!

If you want really good Pinoy food and you don't mind spending a bit more than usual, this is the place you're looking for. Their servings are really huge as well so you'll really get what you paid for.

I can't wait to go back here!

This place however is for those who want filipino casual dining into greater heights. Expectations were high, from its name comes a notion of how Filipino dishes being innovated and set a new standard. Their menu is quite unique giving a lot of characters named in typical dishes. They introduced Sinigang using Watermelon counterpart to tamarind. And to that point i find their offers as challenging with a twist. I super liked their Lechon Kare Kare. Since i am a guy who won't dare to eat pig's stomach (so exotic for me) for Kare Kare, this main dish lets me taste the thick sauce served in a huge bowl. The sauce is not so flavorful yet this makes perfect try with a bagoong or fish paste. Disappointed though with their Ensaladang Arehe, appetizing salad with green mangoes, salted egg, tomatoes and cabbages since the mangoes were so sour you will not be able to dip it in bagoong since it' does not help relieve its sourness. Ginataang hipon was made in heaven, never though fried sugpos were fine with white sauce brought by this creamy coconut content. Price wise, their dishes were perfectly made for sharing and the ambiance was of great importance in Philippine history with effort to create a contemporary look. Will try their food again. Thumbs up!

Everything was good especially the mussels and squid. Food was a little bit on the pricey side. I don't recommend ordering their platters because for me, it's not sulit. The serving was little; I'd rather buy short orders.

Interiors and service were nice. 128522

I saw that they had tamarind iced tea and since I still haven't gotten over Cafe By the Ruins' tamarind iced tea shake, I decided to give this place a try.

The mi ultimo felecidad consisted of chicharong bulaklak, chicken skin and pork isaw. I loved the chicharong bulaklak. It was delicious and cooked just right. The chicken skin and isaw were overcooked as in some of then were hard to bite into.

We also ordered the salt and pepper oysters. It looked good but tasted super bland as in I would have had no idea what I was eating if not for the fact that I read what it was. It lacked flavor, as it only tasted like oil. It's served with white pepper. For what reason I have no idea as it adds nothing to the taste. It's like coating it with starch or something. I could not understand the taste of its sauce too. I just asked for soy sauce to dip it in to give it a semblance of flavor. This platter of bland taste costs Php345.00.

We also ordered the Bolas de fuego (Php235.00) which were squid balls. Nothing great about it except the presentation I guess.

The Ensaladang erehe (Php195.00) consisted of mangoes, tomatoes, onions, etc. the bagoong was too little. See photo above which shows like a teaspoon of bagoong placed on too of the salad. We had to ask for 2 more servings of bagoong. It was okay. The bagoong didn't taste great. It was just okay.

The Amastacio crispy hito with burpng hipon (Php295.00) was also okay. My boyfriend said that the burong was good but that the fish needed more flavor like salt or something. It was a big serving and had lots of meat in it so I guess it was pretty good in terms of serving size for its price.

We also ordered Binagoongan ni pia (Php325.00) which was not binagoongan at all. It was lechon kawali placed on top of an eggplant that had a thin layer of bagoong spread on top of the eggplant. Photo above proves this. It was literally lechon kawali and bagoong, not binagoongan. The lechon kawali was good though and its skin was really crispy. However, we wanted binagoongan so we were kind of disappointed with this.

The tamarind iced tea (Php98.00) was bottomless. Still pales in comparison with cafe by the ruins' tamarind shake but I still liked it. It was refreshing but I keep on comparing i with cafe by the ruins and by comparison, the latter still taste way better.

Service was very efficient. They served food quickly and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We asked them to take our picture and we were happy with a photo but the staff even suggested that he take 2 more photos from different angles!

While we were not too happy with the food, we were happy with their service! 128522

Went here when it was newly opened. Food was great then. But afterwards quality became poor. I don't mind paying much but hey they should keep the service well

Food is average but pricey. The ambiance takes the cake. Service is fast and they were all very attentive.

The verdict, so-so. I would not willingly spend moolah for their average food. But all is well!
