This place was the site of my catch-up Christmas dinner with friends just this Tuesday!!!128525128525128525 It was pouring outside, but it didn't stop us from meeting up and laughing to our heart's content... Since the weather was pretty bad, it limited our choices for dinner... So we ended up here, somewhere new for the three of us... One of our friend's (who lives in the area) actually said this place was pretty nice and serves good comfort food... We trust our friends, so dinner at Rest O' Rama it is!!!128077 Comfort food during the storm please!128513

When I first entered, my first thought was-- the place is so cute!!! I can't believe it was our first time there!!! It had a sort of ranch feel to me, but in a girly way, not a rough and tumble kind of way... The walls were made of light wood, keeping the place very bright and easy on the eyes... The chairs were upholstered in different pastel colors and they were pretty comfortable too!128522 They had cute knick knacks all over, giving the place a kitschy touch and a country feel... My friends and I really liked it! It felt homey, like a sort of diner and ranch in one! Nice ambience!128525 Their comfort rooms are sooooo cute too!!!128156 Check it out!128522

Anyway, we were hopeful for dinner... We ordered the beef nachos for an appetizer... It was a generous serving! The nachos didn't become soggy because the cheese sauce, beef, and salsa were served in different containers... You can pile it on as much as you want... But it left you with the option to be as generous with the toppjngs as you want... Their toppings are also avaible to order on its' own, just in case the initial serving was bitin...

For my main course, I got the Salpicao for P175... It came with soup, just a simple cream of corn soup which was just okay... The Salpicao was very good! Beef tenderloin cubes topped with garlic bits and gravy and rice on the side... The beef was very juicy, tender, delicious and flavorful! Super sulit!128077 It took all of my will power not to finish the cup of rice!128517 I would recommend this dish to first timers at this place...

My friend ordered the pastrami sandwich, which also came with the soup... It was a whole pastrami sandwich with potato chips, a pretty big sandwich as you can see!128156 It was apparently good according to my friend, sulit for P150...

My other friend order the chicken cheese cutlet, served with soup and rice... It was good, but it would have been better if served with mashed potatoes according to her... It was not dry and the serving was again generous... We all liked our orders!128077

Can we rave about the tamarind iced tea as well? Served in a mason jar, it really did taste like sampaloc! So it had a sour note when you drink it... Very refreshing! Try it!!!!128077128077128077

Of note is that the service here is excellent... All of them were polite, well-trained, well-versed on their menu, accomodating and courteous! They would ask your permission before removing a plate from the table, explain the dishes as they were being set down on the table, smile as you ask them questions... They were very snappy, as our glasses were never empty!

We actually left after our meal to transfer to Starbucks... We used our friends' pick-up while I left my car there... We went back at around 1230am and the super nice and OC guard was still there... Oh my gosh, we really gave a big tip for him as his actions were much appreciated... They have a big parking space too, so that you wouldn't end up parking on the side of the road...

I really enjoyed our dinner here and I'm looking forward to our next visit!!! Reasonable prices, excellent service, comfortable ambience, good food and ample dining space... I really think more people should visit this place! Just past Brewing Point along Congressional!!!128150128150128150

P.S.
To the owner, if ever you are able to read this... Please make the sign of the restaurant a bit more obvious and with lights!!! This place is pretty easy to miss if you drive past it... Especially at night!128522 People should be able to see the place and enjoy it like we did!128515

This little nice diner restaurant along congressional extension caught my attention one time i was looking for a place to lunch with my friend.
Rest O' Rama has been open already for 8 months and is still somehow getting well.
The exterior resembles a texan diner and the interior i find it preppy and a bit homey.
I really like the CR! It's really preppy and nice.
128204Gambas con Aligue. Generous serving of shrimp with crab fat sauce. Imagine how hypertensive you'll be after this, so precaution lang for those with high blood pressure. The shrimp was overcooked (though they have already shelled it) it's a bit rubbery. The crab fat is definitely diluted with some kind of oil, nonetheless the taste was there. Talk about the taste, it was quite salty. Lingering bitter-fat taste after.. My friend told me it was already cloying, but then i must say that you just need to take rice with it so it will not turn out to be cloying. 128521128077
128204schnitzel. Ok dont get too hyped like i did when i ordered this, this dish originated from austria (weird but name is german, thanks wiki!). This dish looks like pork chop.. It really is two pork meat (very much flat) that's joined together, in the middle of it is cheese. Breaded moderately. Sounds cordon bleau, tasted like cheesy porkchop.
The applesauce goes with it. Really, i thought that applesauce was a fail since it was just an apple puree. It was not chilled or heated.. It was lukewarm. It tasted dry apple. The type of apple that has already oxidized. Well how i wish it could be caramelized. But then upon trying it with the schnitzel, oh, it tastes good. It adds just the right amount of sweetness and adds life to the dry and course schnitzel.
The schnitzel, aside from being dry, was at least tender. I have encountered a few bone pieces which was a little bit annoying. 128537 overall it was ok.
The salad that goes with it was bland tasting.
The soup that also goes with it (that time was cream of mushroom) kinda failed.. It was not that creamy and kinda had a fluid texture.
The service was great.
