Hearty Pork Binagoongan and affordable prices. Also, the bipolar tea was good.

I was really hoping for a special meal on my birthday, considering this place had pretty good reviews on Looloo.

I can't remember all the dishes we ordered, maybe because they're mostly forgettable. 128532 I do remembering ordering the make-your-own papaitan wrap, chicken ni Mel, beef kare kare, sisig lumpia, and the pinakbey with lechon kawali I think?

The sisig lumpia came first, and for what I'm paying for, it sure wasn't worth its price. It was too obvious that the lumpia has been in the freezer for days and was only re-fried. It didn't taste good at all.

Next came the papaitan dish. I was curious how the papaitan would taste with arugula, but sadly, there was zero arugula on the plate. The waiter didn't apologize nor did he mention that arugula was unavailable at that time if we hadn't asked him. Tsk tsk tsk.

The rest of the main course dishes was really and honestly uninteresting. It has been a really disappointing night. 128532

Great dinner last night at Cucina ni Bunso! This is our 3rd time in this place but first time to eat dinner with the whole family. We ordered their set menu good for 5 for P1,700.00.++. Let's have a run down
on what our menu included :
1. Sampler appetizers which had fried chicken lumpia, fried sisig lumpia, the bomb (spicy lumpia) and their take on fresh spring rolls, after eating all these we were ready for the main dishes 9786
2. 5 spice pork - tender and sarap talaga
3. chicken ni Mel - braised chicken with caramelized slices of apple, with a hint of rosemary and thyme ( I hope I'm right with the herbs) and gravy - the kids loved it, and I thought they wanted it fried 128522
4. Beef sinigang /bulalo - according to hubby this was the best ! The beef was tender, the broth was just delicious ! It's not salty not tasteless...it was really yummylicious ! I was not able to take a pic of the bulalo for obvious reasons....Hindi na mapigilan the gang just went on and dived through the whole dish!!! Bwahahaha128079128079128079
5. All these goes with 5 bowls of rice ( not cup, bowls!) and a pitcher of red iced tea.

Chef Mel took time out and mingled with us as well and had pictures taken with the family 9786

Gestures like these, the kindness, the courteousness of the staff, adds up to a wonderful dinning out experience. I hope if you'd decide to eat here you'd have the same experience 9786

Cucina ni Bunso is a cozy place to dine. Their one if the best seller is pakbet with Lechon. Its a must to try this. The lemongrass juice is also the best.

I have one advice. Do not even consider going to this place. I can't even begin to describe the food. We just decided to try it after eating at hanayo. Which is just opposite the restaurant. We thought why not give it a try since it was featured in a magazine and (i think) a tv show. I ordered the spring roll for Php 160 and i thought its not bad. Its actually quite cheap. But then it came, the veggies are wilted!!! I could even see the black spots in the lettuce. It was horrible. I couldn't eat it. Then my husband ordered the pakbet with lechon kawali. A bigger disappointment! Its more like vegetable shrimp paste soup!!! Too salty, again the veggies are not fresh and undercooked. The plus points are that the staff are really nice, and the place has that rustic vibe which i liked. I never post a review on looloo, to be honest i just use this app to check other people's reviews on restaurants that i am intending to go. But this restaurant took me on another level. It was that BAD that i decided to post one. Wouldn't want other people to waste their money on such bad food. Because food, good food is meant to be enjoyed.

I had the adobo pasta here last time and i luv it. Now i ate pinakbet with lechon kawali. It was so so but i like the not so bitter ampalaya and the not so maalat bagoong sauce that comes with it. 128077128077128077 sorry guys no picture. Next time ill try to take one. I like the ambience too. This is owned by chef mel martinez (bro of maricel soriano).

Hmm, Cucino ni Bunso has a very cozy and cute place. Its white walls and cute paintings made the place more interesting. I love the homey feeling that their interior brings.

I've tried their seafood carbonara and as far as I can remember, I didn't like it that much. I expected it to be creamy and tasty but it wasn't. I liked their beef kaldereta though. It was very cheesy and yunmy!! That's what I recommend to you guys.

You'll love the place!

"Seriously, what the hell?" was my immediate reaction upon receiving my order. I chose the Steamed Bangus with Aligue sauce, which was P295 (without rice) and supposed to be large enough for sharing.

What arrived was a tiny piece of belly, 2 slices of tomato, 3 small slivers of mango & the tiniest saucer of what looked (and tasted like) like out-the-jar-aligue diluted with water and minced tomatoes.

I finished it in 10 minutes (trying to take my time) and was still hungry after. Granted, the salsa of mango and tomato on top of the bangus was delicious, and definitely a new flavor for me, but the measly portion just wasn't worth it.

Previous reviews also cited the food as "comfort filipino food with a twist." The twist seemed to be in short supply - the other items on the menu didn't seem imaginitive. The bangus was the most creative thing there.

I liked the mismatched chairs, but not enough for me to come back.

Cucina ni Bunso is a small place along Sct Lozano. We almost missed it passing by the street. But from the inside, it's big enough for about 50 people. What struck me was the intentional mismatching of chairs and tables and even the salt and pepper holders.

We were informed that their best seller was the Chicken ni Mel (Mel is the owner) and the CBD pork liempo. So we tried both.

The chicken is roasted and provided with a sauce and apple cinnamon. The chicken tasted bland but you have to add the sauce and the apple cinnamon to appreciate the flavor. It worked well with me.

As for the liempo, the liempo itself was sweet. But you have to add the pepper-filled sauce to appreciate the real flavor. It also worked well with me.

I definitely will be back to check out the rest of the menu.
