Hello! So I was invited here for a food tasting!

Ambiance - Classic Manila restaurant design with white wall and dark brown linings and furniture. It's clean too!!! :D

Food that I liked here are the following:
1. Dinakdakan (P140)

2 Sisig (P150)

3. Fika Fried Rice (P135)
Weakest link for me here is the Pancit Luglog. Even Chef Matt's is puzzled why the Pancit Luglog is one of the best sellers in Fika. Haha! :D

Food is not exactly Fika's greatest strength because for me the food here tasted ok, but the price that you pay for the service, the ambience especially that very sweet sunset view?

Is definitely Fika's strongest suit. :D

That is all folks!!! :D

A Swedish chef whipping up Filipino delicacies.

That’s the way the cookie crumbles at Fika, the restaurant located in the out-of-the-way Capitol Greenstreet Commercial Center up Capitol Hills in Quezon City.

Head chef and CEO Mats Loo hails from Sweden where the word “fika” means “having coffee and talks with friends.” Having long dreamed of having a restaurant name Fika, he made his dream a reality right up Capitol Hills in Quezon City.

Diners of Fika are treated, not just to fine Filipino food, but also to a stunning view of the city. Being located in the Capitol Greenstreet Commercial Center, near Capitol Hills Golf and Country Club and Celebrity Sports Club, it is surrounded by greenery with a view of Quezon City all the way to Antipolo.

Also housed in the same building is the top culinary school First Gourmet Academy. It trains aspiring chefs in various courses that will prepare for both local establishments and those abroad. Its working kitchen is also where the fantastic dishes in Fika’s breakfast and all-day menus are prepared and cooked.

I recently joined a foodie meetup held at Fika where, together with fellow foodies, I was able to sample delectable dishes from Fika’s all-day menu. These include:

Chicken Inasal (Php255). A popular Ilonggo dish, it is grilled chicken marinated in a special sauce that gave it its distinct color.

Laing (Php135). Dried taro leaves, coconut milk and chili peppers make this a winner among lovers of spicy food.

Pancit Luglog (Php195). Thick noodles sauteed in a rich savory sauced and topped with hard-boiled eggs and chicharon. A party favorite!

Pinakbet with Bagnet (Php265). A classic Ilocano dish, it’s made of stewed vegetables seasoned with bagoong and topped with crispy bagnet.

Fika Fried Rice (Php135). A recipe that came from Chef Mats’ mom, it’s a great breakfast fried rice made with chopped Chinese sausages, scrambled eggs, pork bits and various chopped veggies.

Binagoongan Rice (Php135). A flavorful dish made of rice, pork bits and kangkong sauteed in bagoong paste then topped with salted egg and ensalada.

Bangus Steak (Php285). The fish version of Bistek Tagalog, it features boneless bangus marinated in soy sauce and calamansi and served with lightly sauteed white onion rings.

Dinakdakan (Php140). An Ilocano dish made of various pork parts such as cheeks, liver, ears and tongue.

Sisig (Php150). Chopped pork parts are deep fried and seasoned with calamansi, mayonnaise, soy sauce and chilis.

We washed down our meal with ice blended drinks such as Choco Caramel Frappe (Php165) and Green Tea Frappe (Php175).

And since any meal wouldn’t be complete without dessert, we indulged ourselves in some freshly bakes cakes, all at Php110 each:

Tres Leches

Ube Queso

Chocolate Cake

Chocnut Cheesecake

All these Fika food sure are Fika good! Do check them out!

Fika is located at Capitol Green Street, Old Balara, Quezon City. They serve Filipino food. Filipino food is always exciting due to influences from its neighboring countries. It is very flavorful; it’s either salty, sweet, sour, spicy or any complimenting combination. Combine it to affordability and generous serving plus a view of the Quezon City skyline — isn’t it just perfect?

My personal preference for food is not too salty or too spicy, just balanced flavor and that’s exactly what Fika had served us. I liked the Dinakdakan, a dish originally from the Ilocos region. Boiled and grilled pork face mixed with pig’s brain. I also liked the Chicken Inasal, a dish originally from Bacolod. Marinated and chargrilled chicken. I really loved how tender and flavorful it was. Another favorite was the Fika Fried Rice. If you like Adobo you should try this.

Fun fact: All dishes served including the tasty cakes were prepared by students from First Gourmet Academy.

Clean eats, literally. We ordered the Japanese Grilled Chicken with Teriyaki sauce and the Chicken masala (i think), and both dishes were delicious and chicken breasts were used! Generous serving, except for the boiled rice which is priced at 30php a cup. Regardless, this is a great place for people who are looking for a place with healthy food. As far as I know, this is operated by students of First Gourmet Academy. Oh, and also.. their Leche Flan is the best. Just stay away from it if you're on a diet. :) love the service too!
