FamBam lunch, thanks to 4 (500php) worth of Metro Deal vouchers given to us, we had a chance dine here.

As we are a big group (10pax) I was just able to take pictures of the food near my space. 9786️ (kinda shy to disrupt the seniors from the far end of the table 128540).

We got the following:

127860Sinigang na Salmon sa Miso - fish was fresh. Broth is just 128076🏻. The miso is the star of the broth, however it lacks the "asim" factor. For me this is just a 1277751277751/2 for me.

127860Chicken Binakol - broth taste good. It's also nice that they incorporated buko strips in the broth. This is a 127775127775127775 for me.

127860Adobo Chicken Wings - the concept was nice however execution was 128529. The adobo sauce coating was kinda sweet for my liking making it far from the adobo taste that I expected. The Kesong Puti dip that goes with it taste bland. Overall, the chicken is overcooked, meat was tough and dry. Making it hard to eat it. This is just a 127775127775 for me

127860Crispy Pata - This all time favorite dish in every family meal was a let down for me. 128542 Meat was so tough and hard to slice. The skin is not crunchy. This dish is just 127775 for me.

127860Embotido - was just ok. Kinda crumbly when you slice it and I feel it has too much breadcrumbs not tasting the "embotido".

Overall, service was good. However taste of the food and serving size was a let down for me. For me. For this specific visit, this is a 127775127775. Will I go back, probably but not anytime soon. I'm intrigue by the Lumpia Palabok and their giant halo-halo.

Just a 128221, the location of the resto is kinda hidden, it's near the bridge way entrance between landmark and Glorietta 2nd level. Serving size is kinda small as well.

Ordered the following for lunch:

Inihaw na Bacon Liempo - Too salty for me. I dunno if it has MSG as well (felt a little sleepy after the meal), but the dish was more salty than a bacon barbecue dish.

Gising Gising - Dish was ok. Coconut milk and the right level of spice makes the dish quite tasty.

Dilis Rice - The mix of dilis and garlic was just right. Taste is not too overpowering and will still let you enjoy your viands.

Been seeing this filipino restaurant whenever i pass by from landmark to glorietta and vice versa. And it looks like a small restaurant so we always dont give this much of an attention but no that night we are looking for a filipino cuisine and this place suits up. Its kinda small like theres just a few inches of space when we were trying to pass by from entrance to our table and abit warm in terms of temperature but we were seated on the far end so its no problem for us.
Their menu is named after famouse people in philippines history like gomburza, aguinaldo, aquino, etc. One thing catches my attention was the aligue rice but since were going to the healthy side we opt not to have it instead we had the following:

1. Oxtail and tripes Kare Kare - it was very rich, the sauce was really good. For me this is good for 4 to 5 people. We were not able to finish this one since it has alot of sauce. Be sure not to be on off rice diet as this would ruin it. :)

2. Twice cooked Adobo - This was really good, i think it was marinated with vinegar and sugar and was fried so to the crispy effect before it was adobo cooked. We all like this one. Feels like a crispy tadyang.

3. Laing with Shrimp - This was a very huge serving of laing. At the end of it all, we were a bit 'umay' with the laing. Nothing special with this dish its just that its seldom that you can find laing in huge serving.

I think i went to a double rice on my visit here since its really hard not to. :) And by the way, food here is not expensive.

Went here because Dad wanted to try their Twice Cooked Adobo which he read somewhere.

We ended up being disappointed.

Adobo - it was sweet. ✖️
Pako & Ampalaya Salad - it was ok.
Pancit Palabok - Jollibee palabok is way better. Had very limited lechon kawali toppings. The lechon topping was bland, not seasoned well enough prior to cooking. ✖️

Service was bad. Slow.

Server informed us that they are part of the Sumo Sam group. Well, that explains it. 128513

Early dinner with my high school bestfriends.

Located on the 2nd level of Glorietta 3. Dekada offers a Classic Filipino cuisines. I also love their interior design, decorated with vintage items and memorabilia. A must try Filipino restaurant.

We ordered:
Agustino- bangoong rice with grilled liempo, green mango slices and scambled eggs. We love it so much. Perfect!

Adobo Chicken Wings with sarsa ng adobo, kamatis at kesong puti dip. Super yummy!

Magdalong Magdiwang- lengua con setas. Combination with mushroom, corn and that especial sauce.

And for our soup we ordered the Yamashita- sinigang na sugpo sa kamias. Ooohhh so yummy! Asim kilig.

We really enjoy all the food. So yummy. The best! Will surely go back here. 128077128077

We tried this restaurant tucked right near the 2nd floor entrance / walkway of Glorietta and Landmark. The resto had all the nostalgic items on display since the 1900s. They also had typewriters, old telephones, walkmans and a lot more. What surprised me was their huge open kitchen which is a plus for me. You can see everything inside their clean kitchen. 128077 Their food servings were huge! We didn't finish our orders even after the extra rice orders. We ordered Baby squid, inihaw na liempo and bistek tagalog. I love the liempo and the bistek. Not too much for the baby squid. Its not what I was expecting. We probably won't order that next time. They have so much food in their menu. Big servings so best to come family style. 128512

Dekada is a Filipino-themed resto in Glorietta. The place has a collection of artifacts of bygone years, such as telephone with rotary dial, callus-inducing typewriters, cassette tapes, tape-eating walkman, and betamax copies of sleazy films that made Gardo Verzosa an object of many a woman’s fantasies. I was naturally amused that if I had been using a vintage camera, I would have used all of the shots for taking pictures of the displays alone.

My companions and I had Magwagi, which is a set meal for a group. It comes with sinigang na sugpo, one whole lechon manok, binukadkad na pla pla, adobo rice, twice cooked adobo, bicol express, and laguna salad. The food was placed on banana leaves.

There is nothing on that table I did not love. Everything was delicious especially the deconstructed bicol express. The sauce is separated from the meat, so I mistook it for bagnet. That’s a pretty creative way of presenting bicol express I must say.

For an honest feedback though, the meat of the twice cooked adobo, which I believe is beef, was a bit tough. Same is true with the lechon manok, but I think these could be improved so there is no cause for alarm.

All in all it was a very pleasant experience; food was good, the staff was warm and nice, and the ambiance, perfect. Dekada isn’t just about dining, it’s a little trip down memory lane; two factors that make for an unforgettable dining experience.

I like their bibingka. Gooey inside and cheesy in flavor. Used moscovado sugar paired with fresh coconut grating. I like theiir pistachio sans rival too. Bottomless mango juice.

Sorry, no pictures for this. We were having a late birthday dinner after the evening Mass and I didn't think our guests would look kindly at me taking pictures of the various orders - especially since some of them are diabetic and it would be injurious to their health to delay eating.

Ordered the ff.:
1. Murphy's Crispy Pla-pla: fillet big tilapia, powdered. Tasted ok this time but I seem to recall raving about this on a previous visit that's why I ordered it again. The fish was tender 'though. So ok na rin.
2. Gen. Luna's Chicken: won't let me down! Always a great-tasting order. Ordered another one when we ran out. Easily the crowd's fave. Also very much like Recipe's General's Chicken dish.
3. Gising-gising: spicy enough to wake you up if you are feeling sleepy. Good to order this if looking for a healthy/vegetarian fare.
4. Laing with Shrimps: bleh! Skip this. If you are Bicolano, this would be a major letdown. We finished everything EXCEPT this!
5. Sizzling Sisig with egg: So-so. I prefer it crunchy / crispy. Forgot to tell the waiter to make sure to give it some extra time on the stove so it ended up the way most kapampangan's serve it - with the fat soft and maybe just a wee bit gummy if the cook took it off the pan too early.

This was my 4th visit already and I always forget to review. Suffice it to say that this place has its merits enough to draw me back again and again - giving them a chance to slowly turn me into a regular patron. The Gen. Luna's Chicken is definitely worth coming back for.

Filipino comfort food, large serving size and a thematic ambiance plus foods served with a twist! 128523

• PLACE
- The place can accommodate a good number of customers. Their long tables were surely perfect for a big groups. It has different memorabilias that will transport you into a different time. You'll see even their menu, was on their theme. 128522

• SERVICE
* No service review since it's a bloggers event*

• FOOD and PRICE
Fabian Ver Fresh Buko Juice (128 pesos) - Cold and refreshing coconut served as it is. You can even ask the servers to scrape the coconut meat goodness after. 127816

- EDSA Milo Godzilla (168 pesos) - Oh no, this place is NOT only for adults. Children alike will surely have wonderful time, especially with this cold Milo dinosaur.127851

- Honasan Guinomis (78 pesos) - Basically like the classic sago gulaman with a twist. Instead of the usual milk, they put a coconut milk to it, and the gulaman they used was black gulaman. Boyfie said it was so-so 128517

- Marcos Dalandan Juice (98 pesos / bottomless)- Their best seller drink! I won't question why. Because it's really "that" good and refreshing! I remembered the juice I had at Sonya's Garden in Tagaytay. One of the best! It's refillable too! Make sure to order this one! 128525128525128525

- Magwagi Family Set (1,990 pesos / 330 pesos per head for a group of 6). The serving size is good for 4-6 persons. (Depends on your appetite ofcourse). They have different 4 sets to choose from. | *Prices below were for ala carte order in case you opted for ala carte *

- Dominicano Adobo Rice (268 pesos)- Lightly flavored adobo rice topped with crispy adobo flakes with bits of salted egg (good combo)! 128522

- Aguinaldo Twice Cooked Adobo (389 pesos)- Not the usual pork or chicken adobo since they braised a beef on this one and cooked it twice. The color will surely speaks for itself. The flavor sips inside every meat. But as a garlic lover? (all of us actually) we really enjoyed every chunks of garlic. It was so flavorful and garlicky but not too strong. 128525128525128525

- Sakay Bicol Express (289 pesos) - One of my favorite! No, this is not Lechon Kawali, but infact, it is a deconstructed Bicol Express. They put a twist to the usual presentation of the popular bicol express. The sauce was served on the size then what you do is you dunk the golden brown pork into the dressing. Ahhhh heaven! What we all loved about it is that, it's not too spicy. 128525128525128525

- Laguna Salad (128 pesos) - Side dish made up of green and yellow mango plus tomatoes.

- Murphy Crispy Pla Pla (289 pesos) - The name says it all. It's indeed really crispy. In fact, one of the crispiest fish We've tried, but still, the meat remains soft and moist.

- Rizal Lechon Manok (578 pesos) - Though it may be the least favorite from the item since the meat inside was a bit bland for our liking, but the skin was packed with flavor. 128517

- Sinigang na Sugpo sa Kamias (389 pesos) - The sinigang was perfectly sour because of the right amount of sourness of the kamias. You can still enjoy the fresh flavor of the sugpo since the kamias flavor didn't overpower the meat itself.128077

- Puto Bumbong with Cheese (148 pesos) - I was surprised to see that there is a cheese on the usual combo of Puto Bumbong, but upon putting those 3 ingredients, BAAAM! Delicious! 128077

- Halo Halo sa Buko (98 pesos) - They presented the halo halo in the coconut itself then filled with colorful halo halo ingredients. Again, you can also ask the servers to scrape the remaining coconut meat for you! 128518

We are 6 during that meal and we still had a lot of foods that we weren't able to finish. It's really sulit! Good for large group or lunch out with friends 128522

The way the Philippine history was incorporated into their menu is genius! Very unique and interesting Filipino delicacy restaurant. A bit pricey but the proportion and taste of the food is way more than what you'll expect. Relaxing ambiance and nice servers!

Its a flashback friday dinner with ze parents.

We ordered kare-kare, bagnet, fried chicken (papa's favorite so dapat may chicken palagi sa mesa) and adobo rice. Their food was good kahit yun adobo rice. Pero their Kare-kare was the BEST. 128076128525
