Heard good things about Kuya Js and i was excited to try it out. Ordered what we were craving for: crispy pata, tokwa't baboy, and chorizo fried rice.
Quite a few items were not available so we settled for the chorizo rice. It really wasnt "chorizo" as it was just sweet ground pork mixed in orange rice. Serving was adequate, but it wasnt savoury enough.
Expected the classic "bits of pork and tofu swimming in a sweet-salty-sour sauce" tokwat baboy; but got the pretentious version of it. This dish was oddly plated and disappointing. Tofu was sooo dry and there was very little pork. The sauce was also more like sweet soy sauce - it was over reduced and the flavours were not balanced.
The crispy pata was the only good thing we experienced from Kuya Js that night. Flavourful, crispy, and tender! Unfortunately, it wasnt enough to change how i felt about the place.
Overall, food was so-so and service wasnt all that good either. Theres a reception area without a receptionist to seat you. The servers had no idea what was available and what wasnt; and they were a bit slow to respond to our needs even though there were only 3 tables occupied. Nobody smiled either, and they seemed pretty bummed to be there.
Had high hopes, and i guess today just wasnt anybodys day.
