Prolly the first time I ever gave 2 stars. My boyfriend and I dined here simply because we've nowhere to go. Going back to Trinoma would be a hassle since we’re going North. I actually find SM North less interesting lately whenever I think of a place to eat. I couldn’t think of any unique restaurant there at all. Mostly crowdie, and common restaurants you can find. I don’t know, maybe I’m just getting used to Megamall or Shangri-La where you can find try-worthy restaurants. Not to mention Maginhawa, and Kapitolyo.

I for sure haven't tried everything there but time comes when you have no choice and left unprepared. 128546 Maybe I feel this way because I'm just a walk away SM North and I go here almost everyday so I no longer appreciate it. I don't know. Haha.

Anyhow, my boyfriend was hungry so we decided to eat before attending the Easter Sunday Mass. I suggested Casa Italia, Project Pie, and Maisen (restaurants we haven't tried yet), but he wanted a Filipino Dish (as always). I didn’t want to walk too much. As much as possible, we try to avoid fast foods so we kept walking until we saw this KKK restaurant hidden next to Pizza Hut. When I saw their enlarged menu outside, my eyes immediately went to the word 'Maquezong Scallop' written in Red (meaning best-seller according to one of their staff). I suddenly craved! I often see KKK in Megamall or Makati but I never took time to search it. So I thought this is an opportunity to get this off the list (even though it was never there). Haha!

To cut the story short, we went in. I immediately noticed the few customers dining here. Quite unusual for an Easter Sunday. I then shrugged it off imagining the Maquezong Scallop I was about to order and eat.

As suggested to be one of their best-sellers, we ordered the Sinangag sa Bagoong, boyfriend chose his viand Sisig Pampanga (he loves Sisig at times, I think boys often do), while I added a Mango Juice.

The restaurant has a combination of colorful metal chairs and wooden couch. However, it seemed to be a little time-worn and I can tell it through the dirty and worn-out Menu which I didn't even want to touch. Not to mention the old empty chiffonier displayed next to the cashier.

The staff was accommodating enough and even served us with a free fish cracker placed in a wooden bowl for appetizer. I know it’s free but I think it has a weird taste. It was also cooked unevenly. Some of the chips were as hard as a stone. A few minutes later, our food was served and here is the verdict:

🔹MANGO JUICE (Php80) - 110881108811088- my boyfriend said it was too sweet but for me it was just fine. Honestly, I put this first because this is the only thing I ‘somehow’ liked from all of what we ate. Giving three stars because it's made out of fresh Mango fruit. They have Fresh Fruit shakes too which is only Php10-Php20 more expensive than the juice.

🔹MAQUEZONG SCALLOPS (Php240) - 1108811088 - (described as Maquezo and Mabawang na Scallops) I was deeply disappointed by this. I was so excited when it was served - eight (8) pcs is enough for the price, plus it looked instagram-worthy. I took one shell and realized that aside from the cheese on top they put a mayonnaise with carrot bits on it. It tasted cheesy at my first bite, but after I had a second one, I suddenly wanted to puke.

For so many times I've been telling how much I love seafood, and Baked Scallop is one of my favorite seafood dishes. Their Scallop was sliced into 4 or 5 small pieces placed in each shell and probably made it harder to eat than just having to scoop and swallow it all at once. I think the mayo and scallop did not make a good combination. It tasted fishy and too dairy because of the mayo and the cheese. In other restos I've tried, it supposed to be something that melts in your mouth. But this one naaaah. I remember the pasta I had at TWG which was so so good. My boyfriend knew I didn't like it. He forced me to finish another one that we were already fighting. Huhu. He won so I ate another one breathless and eyes closed. I only then realized that it was served cold - something that I hate the most. I always want my food served hot. I suddenly felt that my stomach was aching, and felt that I had a tangy taste in my mouth and I just wanted to leave. 128546128546128546 This is the very first time that a Baked Scallop disappointed me and I hope I wouldn't get traumatized. In fact, I can still feel the same sourness in my stomach as I type this review. 128546128546128546 Lastly, it is not true that it's Mabawang (garlicky), rather, it's Ma-Mayo!

🔹Sinangag sa Bagoong (Php160) - 110881108811088 - the serving was right for the price. It comes with Bagoong, Egg Slices, Green Mango Slices, and the weirdest of all, Tocino Slices. I knew I wouldn't eat that Tocino. The bagoong rice alone was good. I think their aim is to put a twist in Filipino Dishes in the most epic fail way. Sadly, the rice wasn't served hot as well.

🔹Sisig Pampanga(Php210) - 1108811088 - my boyfriend really enjoyed this. He said he liked it. For me it tasted like a raw meat though it was served in a sizzling plate. Not good! It is not crunchy either. The color was somehow reddish. I'm not sure whether it was a food color or it's just how Sisig Pampanga is being made. I could tell Mang Inasal's better and way more expensive.

I wanted to have a dessert to wipe out the taste of what I've eaten. However, I was afraid that I'll be even more disappointed. We went out without looking back. We then ended up dropping by St. Marc Cafe to grab some Chocolate Chococro for dessert.

Yes, the food is a little photogenic, but what use it will be if it won't match the taste? I hate to admit but I truly regret eating here. This is why I sometimes hate eating randomly. I couldn't manage my expectation because I do not have any background about the food, place, and the service.

Partly my fault perhaps, for expecting too much given the price. But hey, there is Mangan, Giligan's or Mesa which are the better options as they have almost the same price range but serve absolutely better food. Sadly, I would not reccommend KKK too anyone. 128529128529128529

One of my barkada's biggest problem is the place where we are going to eat. Seriously speaking we always end up arguing where we should eat. Strolling around SM North looking for a place to eat we happened to pass by at Sbarro, Kangaroo Jack and Barrio Fiesta which was jammed packed with a lot of customer. So we settled for a place that has a few customer only which is KKK Pinoy Food.
The place was all Filipino, from the interior, to the uniform of staff.
We ordered Combo A and C if Im not mistaken Combo A has Sinigang na lechon, liempo and pitcher of lemon grass brewed ice tea. While Combo C has crispy pata, pinakbet and pitcher of brewed ice tea.
Sinigang na lechon was good and has a lot of servings. I like their pinakbet because it taste like the pinakbet of ilocanos, the liempo was fine. And their crispy pata has a lot of servings I was expecting that the serving was just fine but I was wrong it has a lot really lot of servings. We are so full that they offer to let us take home some of the dishes.
The food and their service was good! Two thumbs up! 128077128077 #12days

Very nice and delicious filipino foods. I like the most is their ilocano bagnet paired with their authentic bagoong isda. Their sinigang is also delicious, they get the right mix of asim in their sinigang.

After a hot, humid, sticky morning on field, this lunch was a welcome respite. The place promised to be a unique experience. It started out well with kind, accomodating staff. The interiors reminded me of a bahay kubo in the middle of an open field. (But this one had very comfortable airconditioning)

First on the set menu was the appetizer, colored kropek. It looked better than it tasted but hey, it was crunchy and pleasant to the eye.

Next came the Sinigang na Lechon. It sounded interesting but turned out to be nothing more than sinigang na baboy. The lechon skin mixed with the broth was rubbery already and unappetizing. The soup was okay though and was the kind of sour that I liked, mild and light.

The Fried Tilapia was larger than most and very well presented. The sides were cut open and ready to eat. Taken with the vinaigrette eggplant salad, this was the winner for me.

The Inihaw na Liempo came next but was nothing special.

To close out the meal, the set menu included Turon. Mr Sweet Tooth was happy with this one. The serving size was smaller than home made turon but was nicely sweetened and topped with vanilla ice cream. The banana was soft, so care was obviously taken to choose ripe bananas only.

While this was good overall, I don't think I would come back given other choices to go for Filipino food. No unique experience for me here.

Of course, who won't love Filipino dishes, right?!

I personally love their Krispy Kangkong, Kare-kare, and Laing. They also have their best seller Sinigang na Lechon. For me, it's still sinigang butthemeat is just lechon. Hahaha!

Love their watermelon and Green Mango Shake too! Sooo flavorful!
