Got their Longganisa Hamonado with garlic rice and egg (P197). The serving is humongous! The meal itself is great, I just wish I could say the same for their Kapeng Barako (P80). It tasted as if it's watered down, e I was craving for the whapak caffeine kick pa naman. They give you complimentary pandesal with butter while you wait for your order.

I like the ambience here and service was pretty good.

Went here for merienda earlier today.

The 3 layered cheesecake was so good! It's made of ube, macapuno and jackfruit. I didn't think the jackfruit would go well with the ube and macapuno but it did! It wasn't too sweet and it was actually just perfect! Yummy!

The Rainbow cake, as seen in the photo above, is so cute! As it is made of several layers, I guess it was too tall to serve the slice upright. It is a stark contrast from the cheesecake. The rainbow cake isn't as delicious or tasty as the cheesecake. In fact, the layers without icing were quit bland. I had to take several bites just to get the actual taste of it.

We also ordered the pandesal panini with kesong puti. It was served with homemade fries and salad. We loved the panini and the fries complemented it. The pandesal panini was soft and tasted pretty good with the kesong puti.

The cafe mocha was also pretty good. It tasted like batirol but its texture was not as thick as the batirol. The cafe latte was also okay for me. They served our coffee with mascovado sugar on the side.

We will definitely come back to try their other items on the menu! 128522

Ordered one of their bestsellers namely the Batangas Caldereta (P387.00), Lumpiang Togue. (P209.00), Pansit ala Santiagos Miki Bihon (P299.00), Assorted Polvuron (P165.00), Rainbow Cake (P205.00) and Melon Shake (P135.00). Prices felt exorbitant such as the shake and cake. Cake wasn't that sweet but wasn't memorable either. It was eye candy for kids. Miki Bihon had a lot to offer and Lumpia was bountiful. Highlight would be the home cooked to goodness Caldereta. Had lots if paminta so one has to put it aside for those boy fans of spicy dishes. Polvuron were yummy as well. NPlace was like entering your own house and the server was kind enough to explain their food with some spiciness. The background music and chairs weren't that memorable. The food we ordered was average but the number of choices on the menu is worth trying out again. The sister company of Ineng's had a convenient parking space with an amiable guard to assist you. Nothing flashy, nothing mediocre either.

I loved how this place felt very home-y. 10084️ I had tinola here with my mom for lunch last week. The soup was good, it came with a variety of chicken parts, but the sayote wasn't tender enough to bite on easily. 128078 I wanted to try the desserts too but I'll just save it for the next time I'm back for kape and kwento. Hihi

While the place was very nice and cozy looking—I think it used to be a house—the waiting time for food is crazy. The servers were quite friendly, but my brother, who ordered first, got his food when the rest of my cousins and I were nearly done eating. It was a small plate of grilled liempo, and when we asked him how it was, he said it wasn't worth the wait. Yikes. And my other cousin ordered the inasal, and the chicken wasn't cooked through very well, we saw some of the bone was still pink. Double yikes.

If it weren't for the nice servers and pretty interiors, I probably would have given this place just 2 stars. 128533

Driving from White Plains headed towards Ateneo you will find Santiago's on the right just before McDonald's. Do yourself a favor. Stop the car, get off and have a meal in this place.

Owned by the wonderful Richard and Michelle Santiago, the place is cozy, unpretentious and welcoming.

We order the tuyo pasta and the serving was quite generous. The splash of lemon brightens up the dish which has the right amount of saltiness from the tuyo and the capers.

The Gambas is well made with really fresh shrimps. The portion again was generous and could serve as a great appetizer for a group of 4.

The chicken inasal has the right amount of char and the vinegar comes out prominently. With atchara and calamansi and toyo the dish is complete.

With our coffee (kape barako) we had pan de monay newly heated with butter. Perfect combination. Actually if you just want a simple filling snack at 3 in the afternoon you cannot go wrong with this. We also tried the Mariposa (their version of otap) with the coffee and again it was perfection.

Definitely. Place to go back to. Must try folks.

I adore bread. And if you make great bread, I will be a regular patron.

And when my workmate gave me a piece of pan de monay I swooned and asked where she got it.

Fortunately, Santiago is on my way home.

Their best sellers are the whole wheat pandesal and whole wheat pan de monay. I love how it was hefty despite not looking that big. I also liked their sansrival cookies and mango pineapple tart. So yummy and will be great holiday gifts!

They have cakes on display too.

The place is big and has ample parking. They have function rooms at the second floor which can accommodate 12/18/25 pax.

Will go back to try their lunch/dinner menu. The owners also own Ineng's BBQ so I'm sure the grilled items are good.
