Picking a Restaurant that serves Filipino food is always a challenge but Mesa exceeded my family's expectations. Food selection is reasonably priced.

HITS:
Baby Squid in Olive Oil (we had to order an additional plate, it's so good)
Tinapa Roll
Salmon Sinigang complements the Inihaw Platter

MISS:
The area can be crowded and noisy.

Last December 12, 2015, I was invited to an upscale gathering at MESA Restaurant. The venue was located in Eastwood, Quezon City. The occasion was marked by the Christmas party of Team Aldous and the food review of the restaurant. According to the owner, the restaurant is a fusion of the best dishes of Asian cuisines, with a heavy emphasis on Filipino, Chinese, and Thai specialties. He also pointed out that the restaurant is just one of his businesses on a long list of establishments. As a veteran restauranteur, he has been at the helm in managing some of the most popular franchises including Tim Ho Wan.

Seeing that the place itself speaks volumes of the quality of service and food, I was eagerly anticipating the what the establishment had to offer us. We started off with their fresh fruit shakes. I had a taste of their freshly squeezed mango juice which was on a tall glass. The taste was enough to whet my appetite for more things to come. The first meal of the entourage consisted of the Tofu Salad. At 255 Pesos, this delectable serving of tofu topped with shrimp, century egg, and basil swimming in a special soy sauce mix started off my night. The texture was more akin to a cold cut offering on the menu. Also, the ingredients never overpowered each other in any way. Each had its own unique contribution to the overall taste of the dish.

The second appetizer was the tinapa roll. This fried bundle of goodness complemented the first dish by giving a cooked variation of a fish-based dish. Upon tasting, I could feel the excellent mix of the fish together with the salsa composed of onions, tomatoes, and garlic. This truly was an excellent complement to the fresh goodness of the earlier dish. At 195, it was pretty reasonable for 4 people.

The Hito flakes in spoon, another fish based dish, was composed of ground hito with brown sugar, chili, cucumber and green mango. This was an explosion of different tastes and flavors that was brimming with more excitement as compared to the other two. The unconventional taste of this dish made me want to taste more that this restaurant had to offer. The 195 price tag was also pretty reasonable.

The main viand was capped off by the 1/2 Cripchon. At Php 2400, this dish truly embodied the spirit of this restaurant- Filipino fusion. The lechon was fried to a crisp. The skin and meat was then rolled into dough wrappers and eaten like Peking duck. Actually the texture of the lechon plus the taste reminded me of Peking duck. Add to that the fact that the sauces were composed of a good selection including hoision, garlic mayo, and chili, you truly have one winner of a dish. I had more than 10 rolls of the crispchon in wrapper until I gave up. I took my time trying out the taste of fried pork together with all the sauces on the plates.

The sigarilyas sa gata reminded me of a home cooked favorite my parents used to cook. This one though, had high quality ingredients that made me want to crave for more. The cocount milk was evidently fresh. The same goes for the sigarilyas. Add to that the fact that the dish was spiced with chili and pepper. It truly is a godsend for those who like spicy food. The 180 price tag, was a bit pricy but still worth paying for. Another variation of the vegetable dish is the Laing 2 ways. This spicy concoction of gabi leaves drenched in coconut milk and cooked to perfection is another wonderful complement to the array of dishes that we tasted. At 120, I'd go for the Laing anytime.

The perfect accompaniment to the viant was the duck basil fried rice. The Chinese influence of this dish was pretty unique. Normally yang chow fried rice would be composed of pork and vegetables. Not this one. The dish settled for more adventurous ingredients such as duck and basil. I do love how the dish played out on this one. It costs 180 per cup and is good for 2 people per serving.

Soup is an integral part of Philippine cuisine. Mesa has recognized that by offering chicken binakol soup. This version of tinola is cooked with coconut meat and served in a buko shell for that authentic Pinoy flavor. It really is good for consumption during the cold December night. I especially love the fact that the cocount meat accentuated the chicken flavoring on the soup. Plus the fact that the servings were huge and good for 2 or more people.

Given the quality, style, and presentation of its dishes, I'd surely go back to MESA for a unique dining experience.

Love everything here!

The crispy pata was sooo good! Even the sauce was great for me! It's crispy, juicy, flavorful, and comes in a big serving. What more could you ask for?

We also loved the scallops. It was buttery and full of garlic, just the way I like it. I ate too much too fast that I did get a little dizzy from it though. It's sinful but so worth it.

We also had the hito flakes for our appetizers. It's good for cleansing the palate, but it's quite spicy if you're a dumbass like me who ate all the chili 🌶 slices.

The adobo flakes taste better than they look. They looked bland but as you chew it, they have good aftertaste, and it goes really well with the garlic rice.

We also had the kare-kare. The bagoong that came with it was delicious.

I'm so pleased with our meal am definitely going back! 128151

Good and affordable Filipino food. Great place to bring you balikbayan friends.

Order their tilapia with four sauces. Beautiful presentation and crispy tilapia chunks.

I enjoyed their tawilis with mango appetizer. Funky blend of textures and flavors.

Their lechon two ways was a bit of a disappointment. The pandan crepe that came along with it had a strange gummy texture so I felt like I was chewing something with plastic content.

My forever favorite is their Chicken Binakol. It just hits the spot with its flavorful soup and slivers of coconut meat.

Overall, I highly recommend to people who are looking for Filipino favorites with a twist.

Adios! 128111

Drunken Ostrich and Steamed Okra!
The freshest okra I've had in a while and very good ostrich. Normally, ostrich has the texture of liver, but this one has a slightly tougher texture. Not beef toughness, but better than the giving-way to every bite mushiness of liver.

Our team had a post-holiday lunch celebration here and we made the right decision to come eat here! The food was really good. I can't remember all of them but they were delicious! I think we got the party packages - package 3 9786

The service was ok too. It was good but not great either. Had to keep asking for water 128517 or maybe because there were a lot of people when we ate there? Not sure but that's still not an excuse hehe.

Anyway, thanks to our boss our tummies were filled with food and our hearts with joy! 10084️ will definitely go back here 128522

Everything first! First review & first time to dine here at Mesa Moderne Filipino. I have known this resto for some time but never had a chance to try it. Until i was invited for a dinner anniversary celebration of my dear friends 128522
The menu was quite good. Prices are fair enough (they don't have service charge!). I just noticed that choices for chicken menu was limited only. But still okay 128522.
Here it goes! Appetizer first, tinapa roll (pic posted) it was delicious! Also the vinegar. Loved it so much! 10084️. After, we had sisig in a pouch (cute presentation and delicious as well), boneless crispy pata, salmon sinigang for soup, kare-kare, garlic chicken (i didnt enjoy this one, i think they overcooked it), inihaw sampler(combination of seafoods and meats), for veggies we had laing (comes in 2 ways with and without gata, i loved the without gata one! 10084️) and pinakbet with bangus belly. also, we had pansit palabok and pansit bihon.
We are all so full that we didnt had a chance to order some dessert na!
Overall! Everything is delicious and was served well. Food servings is good enough for 2-3 persons per order. We enjoy the food, the place & the staffs are all nice and accomodating.
✔️✔️✔️ till our next visit!! #12Days
