They have good tasting food. But i was very disappointed with the serving size of the pinakbet. It was just around 3 spoonful. I asked the waiter why it was like that. And accoding to him thats their servinf size. The pork sinigang also had 4 slices of pork only. We have been here a couple of times before. And definitely their serving size has shrinked. Not good value for money :(

Filipino food has come a long way.. Mesa moderne added a twist to the Filipino fave sisig.. And I loved it because it's delectable and juicy and the wrap is crispy... Rice please..
Try the Kamias shake that I got.. It's a thirst quencher... And healthy... Love it here...

Impromptu lunch date with Rain D.

We were originally planning to have lunch at San Seh Noodle House but they open 3PM onwards and I have to be back to work before 3PM. From hand-pulled noodles, we ended up having Filipino instead.

We were easily accommodated to one of two available tables and glad it was near the Iwata air cooler. That's when I noticed that the AC wasn't working properly and the summer heat not helping. All good for now.

On to our orders:
128039 Patotim - Sweet and savory 1/2 duck stewed in soy sauce and anise. I was initially expecting the meat to be tough but was pleasantly surprised as to how tender and flavorful the duck was. The sauce was perfect with plain rice.

127811 Laing 2 Ways - Taro leaves, pork, shrimp paste and coconut cream topped with adobo flakes, served original and crispy. I liked the original version better than the crispy one, although the crispy one was also good. It's just that the original one was saucier.

127834 Plain Rice

128154 Green Mango Shake

How good was our meal? I have been been avoiding rice for quite some time now and would only eat a few spoonfuls with Filipino dishes. This time around, I managed to have 1.25 cups of rice. 128584128584128584 Really a challenge not to have rice with saucy Filipino dishes!!!

Kare Kare, Shrimp in butter, and Baked tahong in photo. But it's not the food that's making this review worthy of 5 stars. The level of attention we received from the servers and wait staff was just divine. Good job Tomas Morato team!

One word. Laing. 128522 Aside from Laing, we ordered, hito with mangga and bagoong-tamarind for sauce, it's soooo yummy. Try also the garlic scallops. And for dessert, get the crispy leche flan. It's like, mini turon but, instead of banana, it's leche flan inside! Happy tummy.

Filipino food for a change in pace...

My brother and I were driving around Tomas Morato looking for a place to have a semi-healthy dinner for takeout... We could not find parking at F7, so we abandoned the idea of eating at Kanin Club or Señor Pollo... I just pointed at Mesa after we just couldn't think of anything...

It was actually my first time to dine at any Mesa branch... You will immediately notice the beautiful light fixtures that are the focal point of the restaurant... A definite nod to our heritage with the native materials used... The restaurant was spacious and felt comfortable, not too noisy inside either... But we just sat by the chairs by the entryway and contemplated our dining options...

I wanted to choose dishes that weren't too oily and that would hold up during the ride to the hospital... We decided on the following:

127860 Adobo flakes-- put me in this situation and I will always order this dish, just because I 12852510084128525 adobo flakes... As in!128513

127860Tofu salad-- served with century eggs and prawns over a light sauce... I hate century eggs, but the tofu and sauce worked great together!128077

127860Braised beef-- meh, though tender... All of us didn't really like the flavor...

127860 garlic chicken-- my fave dish if the night... Breaded but moist inside with a nice pop of garlicky flavor! Delish, makes you forget about the calories!

127860 sisig rice-- too heavy for me... Served with a fried egg on top...

Overall it was a good dinner that wasn't too bad on the wallet!128522

Mesa : (Photo from Google)

I was invited by my cousin to join them to celebrate her Brother and Niece's birthday. The place is enormous and does have so many people. The Party was inside a function hall with awesome interiors. You can say the eating place is great since a lot of people are indulging themselves to experience modern filipino dishes. We had Prawns, Crispy Pata, Estofado, Roasted Chicken, Kare-Kare, Fried Tilapia. Food is really scrumptious. It was my first experience in the resto and i would highly recommend it to everyone. My cousin also said that for family gathering she prefers Mesa.

Español:

Fui invitado por mi primo a unirse a ellos para celebrar el cumpleaños de su hermano y su sobrina. El lugar es enorme y tiene tanta gente. El partido estaba dentro de una sala con impresionantes interiores. Se puede decir que el lugar para comer es genial ya que mucha gente está permitiéndose a experimentar platos filipinos modernos. Tuvimos langostinos crujientes Pata, Estofado, pollo asado, Kare Kare, Fried Tilapia. La comida es realmente deliciosa. Fue mi primera experiencia en el resto y lo recomiendo a todo el mundo. Mi primo dijo además que para la reunión familiar que ella prefiere en Mesa.

Every dish we tried was super good, but my favorite is the Laing (served 2 ways). It's really the best Laing I've ever tasted. The other dishes I would recommend are Sinigang na Baboy with Guava and Pinya and the Fried Tilapia. I'm looking forward to bringing other friends to this place. :)

Hi looloo!!! It's been 3 months since my last review, I can't believe it. So many things are keeping me busy!

So my family & I went to Mesa for dinner. We chose this restaurant because we wanted to try a new place! Although I've already tried Mesa with a couple of my friends, I was still excited! We ordered Tinapa Rolls, Baked Scallops, Sisig Rice, Tinapa Rice, Ostrich Salpicao and Inihaw Platter. It sounds like a lot of food, and there was a lot! We really had dinner the Filipino way, busog na busog kami in the end! Everything tasted good, but my favorites would have to be the Tinapa Rolls and the Inihaw Platter! The Sisig Rice could use a bit more sisig, and there was nothing spectacular about the Ostrich Salpicao (but it tasted good). Overall, it was a great dinner enjoyed with the company of my family! 128522

Food was great. But what struck me the most was their humble-looking talong salad. But it's taste wasn't anywhere near humble. The vinaigrette was one whose taste explodes in your mouth.

I love how Mesa does it's Filipino dishes... With style! I personally love their baby squids in olive oil, for me it's something you should order every time you come here. Also their tinapa rolls are the bomb! You guys should also add to the list: crispy pata, sauce on the rocks and Laing two ways. Would definitely recommend to Mesa. 128516
