On this sponsored visit, a few food bloggers and myself were invited to feast on modern Mexican food. Gregory Park is now serving their serious grub at a new spot in Torre Lorenzo 2 along Taft Avenue near prominent universities.

It’s new location is nestled almost deep inside the building and even though it’s quite an obscure place and a real hole in the wall, Gregory Park would be worth the trip.

Gregory Park’s new venue screams cozy Latin pop as soon as you walk in. It’s very lively with colorful murals giving a Latin-American bar vibe. Think an underground urban taqueria. Its name came from a park in New Jersey, where the owner and chef spent a lot of her years in. It’s apparently a strong Filipino community as well.

For such a cozy space, they have a fully-equipped kitchen. Seating is very casual – along bars on the wall and another along the kitchen counter. It is suited for quick or even standing lunches and for takeout.

For our food we had a run down of Tacos, Arroz Platters & Rice Skillets, Quesacone & Smothered Fries, and a Vegetarian Special. That’s like half of their whole menu, which apparently changes every now and then.

We had 3 from their taco selection: Pulled Pork Pancake Sliders (P250), Beef Supreme Chalupa (P185), and Chicken Verde Chalupa (P185). They all come in a nice tray with a side of nacho chips and really freshly made salsa. The trio tacos had well-marinated and well-seasoned meats and it complimented its vegetables and its ‘shells’. I love the pancake version the most for its sweet and fluffy bites.

Time for some much awaited rice: Pulled Pork Arroz Platter – with Cilantro Rice (P235) and their Yin Yang Skillet – Signature Chili con Carne with Turmeric Rice (P285). Servings were generous and balanced. The tender and tasty Pulled Pork was a complete package with it having crunchy slaw and warm herb filled Cilantro rice mixed. It also had my favorite black beans. For Yin Yang Skillet, its supreme part was digging some of its burnt layer at the bottom and mixing it with their signature hot and cheesy chili.

Next on the bar were Buffalo Chicken Pizzacone (P275) and Loaded Carne Asada Fries (P299). By this time we could already feel how critical they were when they coined it serious grub. The Buffalo Chicken Pizzacone is a Gregory Park creation, and is a burrito pizza with Buffalo Chicken rolled into a cone. A must have hand grabbed meal. And when they said their Loaded Carne Asada Fries is loaded, they meant it. Their fries are the real thing, packed with no fillers or anything.

We were full to the brim already but still went to try the last one for our visit, their vegetarian special, Chipotle BBQ Chicken over Garlic Mash (P265). Its Chicken is entirely vegan that mimics the look and texture yet not so much the taste of it. It was spot-on bite thanks to well-spiced chipotle dressing on Garlic Mash that was very creamy.

For drinks, don’t forget to get their Half & Half (half brewed iced tea and half lemon iced tea) drink to cleanse (and maybe even rinse) your palate and help you down all that food. They use the real thing guys.

Gregory Park is a great place to kick back and enjoy some hearty food made with love. In comparison to other restaurants, this spot gets an A+ in creativity and value for money. Everything from the bread to the sauces are homemade, made by Chef herself.
