The arroz caldo was surprisingly good! The name Happy Chicken Arroz Caldo was very, very apt. The porridge was very flavorful even by itself and not the bland kind that would draw its taste from the toppings. I'd recommend this as a great modnight snack.

The champorado, however, was just average and nothing too special.

I wanted to try something different in Recovery Food other than its Tapa de Morning so I went with Happy Beef Rice. Happy Beef Rice was RF’s version of beef pares. I think the serving’s good enough for one person but I still think it’s too expensive. I like how the beef had a few “fat” in it but regretted it because I can taste how oily it was. The beef was tender and the flavor was just right. I honestly wanted a saltier version but I know I am bias towards salt. :) Still, it was a good “break” from my usual tapa order.

Lechon Kawali

This is a decent lechon kawali. The dip is creamy and a little spicy which is happiness in my palate! I think it was the dip that made this dish special.

It didn't wow me but I liked it.

Side story...

I was surprised that the server remembered me and the food I ordered the last time I dine there. And before I left, she asked me which is better, the chinese chorizo or the lechon kawali. I responded, "parehong masarap." And I said, "thank you."

Excellent service!

Alfonchorizo 290Php

Fried rice
Chinese chorizo
Scrambled egg

Nothing special. The spicy vinegar "pinakurat" compliments well with this dish. The serving is generous. Their best seller is lechon kawali. I should have ordered that instead. Pero next time na lang.

Servers were very nice. Everyone wears a smile.

Place is clean.

Recovery Food is best after booze sessions. My officemates and I went here before going home after Bugsy's.

I ordered my usual Tapa de Morning. You may choose how you want the egg to be cooked - sunny side up or scrambled. I chose the later. I had brown rice. I also had their Barcia's Strips (125php). This is fried thinly sliced pork strips. More like of a bacon, but sweeter.

P.S. Their rice bowls are available in two sizes: regular and full recovery.

Our friendship of having different shift schedules at work leads us to eat here at Recovery Food. The name of the restaurant itself is perfect, coming here on a Friday night after our work shifts just means we need good food to eat to recover from a stressful week.

The Barcia’s Strips is our favorite. Thinly sliced pork strips that taste good alongside that vinegar. We ordered the Dalandan juice by the bottle which is really flavorful that we wish it could have been bottomless. My favorite is the Happy Beef Rice. It tastes even better with their sauce. (I forgot what it’s called, just eat here to find it out. :P) The other ones that I have tried are Happy Beef Arroz Caldo and PinaTUNA-Y which also taste good.

Their rice meals come with two types of serving: Regular and Full Recovery. They even offer brown rice for your rice meal, perfect for those who were on a diet. Their restaurant is open 24/7, serves good food of affordable price, eat here and you will surely recover. :)

I've always associated Recovery Food as an expensive place because of all the things I see online. But when I browsed their menu, the price is somehow comparable vs. other restaurants. I ordered Tapa de Morning. It's actually a good thing that the customers have the liberty to choose between having white rice or brown rice. The thin beef strips had little to no flavor at all. It had a generous amount of rice but I ended up leaving some of it.

Recovery Food has been always our choice whenever we wanted a quick recovery after running or even after booze! Their branch in Home Depot has been very precious because of its intimate mood. Though you have to line up for more than 15 minutes (sometimes), it's all worth it because their food says it all!

And I was more than surprised and amazed that they have branched out to the newly-built BGC Stopover to cater commuters (or nearby folks) who wanted to have that quick recovery from a long tiring day or from a bad traffic. The new branch was well-lit and bright, which was dissimilar from the first branch I've tried. More chairs and much spacious, but the great selection of food that made them famed was there and continued to expand their menu!

I decided to try Doc Sisig, while my friends got their Tapa de Morning and Amadobo.

I like sisig so much! And I am not gonna lie about sisig-related pet peeves. You can really tell the difference between a homemade sisig and a canned-made sisig. In Recovery Food's case, it's the former, and obviously not canned-made sisig. The crunchiness and savory taste that I want in sisig that I usually had at the pubs were present here in my bowl. And then you have the mayo that adds some hook to the flavor. Add a little Sriracha sauce onto it and boom, you'll have one of the surely best sisig in town! And yes, I like eggs to be scrambled at times, because every day is not always a "sunny side-up"! #mema

My friend who's a first timer to try this has really loved the tapa de morning. I love that too, and remains as one of my favorites from Recovery Food!

Serving time was fast and the service was more than great! Although I prefer the warm ambiance and that "late night" feel of the Crossroads branch, I'll still give this branch a perfect rating!

Yes! This is really my Recovery Food! 128513 Whenever I crave for tapa, this comes first!

Tapa de Morning is my all time favorite! Home made tapa, scrambled or fried egg, ensalada, organic plain rice (additional Php35.00 for Talangka Rice)

Serving
Half 180.00 Full Recovery 260.00

Their cheese sticks are the best for only P99! Cheese overload! 128525

I always go for the Full Recovery! 128514128584128055

Though the space in BGC is quite small. It's always jam-packed 128528

We may all have this judgment about Recovery Food as a place where we recover from a party fiasco. A place where we FEED and RECOVER. It's a different story for me. When I used to reside in Makati, Recovery Food is my go to place when my belly asks for food during odd hours. Nothing changed when I move to Ortigas. I still hanker for simple, delicious and filling comfort food which I am sure I can only get at Recovery Food during the wee hours.

After a long and tiring work day, I revisited Recovery Food at 1AM to eat my favorite regular sized Tapa De Morning but I noticed that there were new items in the menu. How long has it been? 🤔

I tried two new dishes which I am not sure if it's really new or was it just yesterday that I noticed them. Well, they're not actually in the menu but on posters.

LECHENG KAWALI
I got a regular sized rice bowl because there's one more I wanted to try. I opted to have brown rice for my Lechon Kawali because I know it'll go perfect with the putok batok topping. It was served with a pork liver sauce similar to Mang Tomas but they have their own version which I thought was really good. The crackle with every bite was the best and it was definitely a redemption from an exhausting day. They always have Sriracha and Hoi Sin sauce on the side which I added to the rice and boom! Flavors exploded. 128523

DOC SISIG
And I remembered you April H. Doc April! I was wondering why they named it Doc Sisig. I was about to ask one server but they were all busy with people waiting outside so I did not bother. At least no one is standing at one corner doing nothing. Service was great by the way. My best guess was that Doctors are there to treat illnesses and this sisig will help cure any mental stress or whatsoever. 128514 Well, one thing is certain, this sisig served with egg on top is a winner. Anyone will definitely feel regenerated after eating this (pwera na lang kung highblood ka). I opted for white rice so I can really taste the sisig which did not disappoint.

I always pair my food with their Calamansi Juice. Having a bottle good for 2-3 persons for only PHP90 is a steal. It can help cure a probable hangover. 128514

It's my first to try one of their desserts,

GINATAAN
I love that they did not scrimp on ingredients. I did have loads of banana slices, sago, sweet potato and ube. Plus, the sweetness was just right. I hoped that it wasn't too watered down.

Recovery Food absolutely lived up to its name. A place that will never disappoint anyone looking for ransom from any stress or whatever reason. As I stepped out, I noticed that they have other new dishes like kebabs. Sadly, I was already too full from all the rice bowls and the servings are hefty. One thing is for sure though, I will definitely be back to try them out.

Hubby had an unexpected errand which had an indefinite time. I tagged along and searched for a place to wait nearby. I roamed around the building and resigned myself to something familiar. And besides it was still Friday and I was abstaining from meat.

The moment I entered Recovery Food, I asked the staff if there was an outlet I could use. He willingly obliged and I settled myself in.

I ordered an S. S. T. Aka Spicy Sweet Tuyo. It was extremely spicy and sweet indeed. My lips hurt from the hotness and the sweet sauce was on the rice as well. There was a generous serving of hard (you can't cut it) boneless tuyo. It was more than the eggs and rice. The salad/vinegar eased the pain of the spicy dish.

As I was eating the tuyo, I remembered why I have not revisited Recovery Food recently. most of the dishes we have tried in the past are sweet.

It was a good steady place to hang out but the food was so so. This branch is more spacious and more maaliwalas than their other branch. They still have the open kitchen set up.

This is a cool place to chill and hang out with friends. They offer mostly pinoy food with a twist that will make you guess and wanna try it out. You can go to a regular or may choose the full version of your meal. 128077127860

After work, my friends and I stop here at recovery coz it's just across our office. I had Tapa de Morning with scrambled egg with white rice and my friend had Amadobo with white rice and sunny side up egg with dalandan juice. The juice is uh may zing. Their Tapa de Morning is good, will try the tapa with talangka rice. Price wise, we had just regular and your stomach will be full already it costs 180 , dalandan 99/ bottle these doesn't have service charge yet.

When asked if I like Recovery food, my answer will always be "YES WITH RESERVATIONS" lol I mean, I like their rice bowls but not to the point where I will sweep everything to the last grain of rice. This feeling was confirmed when we ate lunch there today.

Hubby got a regular bowl of Happy Beef Rice with brown rice and I got a regular bowl of SST with Talangka Rice. Then to chug it all down, we got a bottle of their Calamansi Juice.

Hubby was quite happy with his order and I enjoyed mine with the first couple of spoonfuls. Their SST - Spicy Sweet Tuyo - came in with a fried egg. I loved the sweet and salty tuyo that has the right level of spiciness for me. The tuyo pieces were big too. The talangka rice was a bit disappointing though. It was orange, the way it's supposed to be, but the distinct talangka fat flavor wasn't there. I was thrilled to see this in their menu coz I grew up eating talangka rice as prepared by my lola. The distinct saltiness and rich fatty talangka flavor wasn't there. Then as I get to the bottom of my bowl, the overwhelming and migraine inducing oil surfaced. THERE WAS JUST TOO MUCH OIL that it kinds felt eating oil soup with my rice.

Good thing their Calamnsi Juice was refreshing and took out the umay somehow. But then again, I wasn't able to finish my bowl and went out with a headache and hungry tummy 128527

No more Recovery Food for me!

Recovery Food has been around the block for quite sometime. The last time i was here was eons ago and the food totally escaped my memory.  What better way to refresh my memory than to have an impromptu breakfast at Recovery.

Got myself a regular serving of SST.  Sweet & spicy dried herring,  white rice and egg.  For those who are counting calorires,  white rice can be changed to brown and pick how you want the eggs,  scrambled,  sunny side up or over easy.

For some reason,  i don't get allergies when eating processed dried herring. (i get nasty red bumps with the fried ones).   My best guess is that the preservation process tones down the strong flavor.  Anyway,  SST remains to be my favorite,  the fish is a combination of salty,  sweet and spicy,  best served with flaming hot Shiracha.  This is a classic breakfast stable in every Filipino household. 

The Bonifacio Stopover branch is bigger than the other RF joints.  Industrial interiors,  high ceilings and no frills furniture.  They need a lil improvement on the AC,  one unit was dripping and leaves water droplets on our table.   The server was kind enough to ask us to transfer seats. 

And oh,  the server gave us free samples of their Shawarma-ish dish (prepping for the arrival of Halal Guys in High Street).   They servef two bowls,  each has four types of white sauce.  We have to pick which of em taste best.

RF is one of the places one should visit when craving for no frills,  straightforward Filipino Food.  Price is reasonable and serving is just right.
