One of the things I keep a tab on is places that offer ice cold Tiger beer.

The Singaporean lager is popping in our local restaurant scene and I am very pleased to announce that LAVA Timog is one of the few that carry this brand. I love this drink, and it’s always one of the reasons why trips to Singapore are always welcome—Tiger beer is available on tap!

But that’s not the only reason why I’m writing this looloo review solely dedicated to LAVA, a comfort food nook that you should keep under your radar.

The restaurant grills and cooks most of the items on their menu using this sustainable and healthier option. The rocks are said to last for a year, and lessens the amount of carcinogens on grilled food. But that’s not all, the rocks are LAVA’s number one choice for cooking because it insulates the flavor from the meats’ natural oils, packing any dish with relishing tastes.

When one hears of the restaurant name, you immediately look forward to a molten cake dessert—but let me just stop your sweet-tooth drooling there. LAVA takes its name after the most important part of their kitchen: Lava rocks.

One thing you have to try on your first visit—or any visit for that matter—is their Cheese and Bacon pasta. LAVA’s take on the classic carbonara is an enjoyable twist for any bacon lover out there. The dish is not only peppered but smothered in crispy bacon bits, perfectly balanced with a creamy sauce.

Their chicken wings are packed with Filipino-style barbecue flavor. The savory and hickory glaze is a fail-proof recipe for wings. The surprisingly best part about this order is the tortilla chips. It was refreshingly light and so good that I wished they offered it as an unlimited refill appetizer.

For meat lovers, turn to their burgers. The beef patties have that distinguished home-cooked recipe of ground meat and vegetables. To make your order a bit special than it already is, customize your burger with a bit of onion rings inside the bun—those extra carbs make it more irresistible.

It was my first time here and I can say the experience was great. I had ordered the Unli-Pasta 299 with Cheeses and Bacon. Let's just say it was a good choice. I was surprised on how affordable their pizzas were until the 8" was served. It was good for one (1) person only. It tasted great, but it was just too small to share.

Ambiance, service, and prices were okay. Will definitely come back for another round.

Timog Avenue is home to some of the best drinking places and grills in Quezon City. LAVA Resto Bar and Grill is one of the newer grills in the area. Fortunately, I got a chance to experience the place to check its dishes.

The grill had this art deco/ hispter feel. There was a freedom wall where diners posted pictures and messages. Also, they had the logo painted in black and white in one of the walls. The furniture even reminded me of one of those classic bars in Manila.

The place has been around for a year. According to the owners, their specialties are more on American themed dishes with emphasis on meat. As a meat lover, I surely couldn't wait to taste what they had to offer. The menu included BBQ Pork Ribs, Seafood in Olive Oil and Garlic Pasta, Savory Chicken, Classic Burger, and Buffalo Wings. Plus a bucket of Brew Kettle.

We started with their appetizers. The Buffalo Wings had this mildly spicy taste and delicious barbecue sauce. It was also in generous servings. I'd say that the skin was pretty remarkable. It was chewy and savory. The Seafood Pasta was less remarkable. The dish was pretty salty; and the seafood wasn't so fresh anymore. This, however, was redeemed by the BBQ Pork Ribs. The sauce was excellent. The servings were also good. It was also topped with garlic rice. Furthermore, the meat can easily be stripped off the bones without any difficulty. The Savory Chicken was well cooked. The meat was tender. Also the skin was tasty. The Classic Burger was also well-cooked. It had a thick patty generously topped with big buns and piping hot mozzarella cheese. In sum, I'd say that their dishes were pretty notable. But I must say that they need something to mark the distinction in their meals. The prices are quite reasonable as well.

LAVA Grill seems to be one of the more discreet places to share a drink or meet friends or family. The quaint ambiance and casual interiors can serve to soften the mood and promote a fun and friendly conversation. LAVA Grill is located at 79 Timog Avenue, QC (In front of Buddy's)
