If it's only for the looks of the place, Lauro's Cafe is definitely a pleasing break from your windshield's view of endless road in NLEX.
The interior is a splash of vibrant colors inviting such a festive mood and with the installation of the wooden furnitures, it's almost like a barrio style dining experience.
Then comes the food and the colors started fading down a few tones of dullness. I ordered their special lomi but found nothing really special about it. Though served generously, it was just short of flavors entirely missing the contrasts of its ingridients. Chicken Sisig, from their pina-sisig collection is pretty lame as well. It isn't something I hate but I felt like it entirely missed its charm of being a gastronomical sizzler. Not to go crazy over their tokwa't baboy but I thought it was the best dish served on our table. Fried to achieve just the right crunch poured with diced onions, chili and a well seasoned dipping, this is something I might want to order again.
For someone who loves Filipino food, Lauro's Cafe can both be exciting and frustrating. While it's true that it was able to establish a good ambience, falling short of flavors is a real blow against the whole filipino dining experience. I always think that the core of filipino food is its rich flush of authentic flavors and ironically, this is what their plates are lacking. Generally, not at all was it a bad experience, but not at all was it memorable as well.
