Note: This is a backlog post.

I went here with my mom a few months back during one of our grocery days. My mom used to love this restaurant a lot, because of its flavorful barbecues.

We had to wait a while before we were seated, due to the volume of customers that day. Once we were seated, we had to repeatedly ask for the menu, and after several attempts, they finally gave it to us. After a quick browse, we have already decided what to get, but can't get hold of any servers! I was already hungry and frustrated by this time. Every time we call the attention of the servers, they keep on telling us "Wait", or signaling for us to wait. I haven't even started eating, and I wanted to leave already! 128557

When a server FINALLY approached us, we got the following:

✔ FOR ME: PORK SPARERIBS BARBECUE (Php 195 - Half) - 1108811088110881108811088
I loved how big the serving was, complete with their flavorful Java rice, atchara, and their famous peanut sauce! 128525 The meat was juicy and tender, and had just the right amount of fat. I actually like this more than their chicken barbecue. 9996

✔ FOR MOM: BONELESS CHICKEN BARBECUE (Php 190) - 11088110881108811088
My mom always gets this when we eat at Aristocrat. Tastewise, she loves it, but complains that the size of the chicken has become more and more smaller through the years. Well, at least it's still as tender as she remembers it to be. 128076

When we asked for the bill, it took another 10-15 minutes before it was brought to us! Why is the service this bad??? The change was brought to us after another really long wait. Perhaps they are thinking that we might not wait for it, and that they can add it to their tips. Well, not today. 128581 The bad service really spoiled a perfectly decent meal. Hope they will shape up soon. No wonder the customers have been shifting to eating at the other Filipino restaurant beside it instead.

Went out yesterday for some business lunch. We were off to tayuman area, so only SM san lazaro popped off my idea.

There is not much good restaurant inside SM San Lazaro. We jus ended up eating here. It's a filipino restaurant with a few Chinese dish.

The place is quite big. It can accommodate around 60 pax. There's only a common CR and washroom towards the back of the place, cool naman. Not much aircon felt.

128204 hototai soup @250 2-3 pax
Chicken, pork, shrimp, and egg in a clear broth soup. It tastes a little bland.. Good for GERD pips. The mixture of protein is what attracted me to get it.

128204128525 chicken honey @440 whole
A little sweet tasting chicken. Tender. Do not forget to try the java sauce. I suggest they should not have placed it in a sachet. I wish they could have served it on a sauce plate. The sauce was so good to go with the chicken.. Love the nutty taste.

128204 lechon kawali @285
Yummy and crispy pork belly. Eat while hot. Served with atchara.

128204 128525mechado @425
Thick and tender beef slices in a spiced tomato sauce. I just love it. Comes with carrot and potato slices. Flavorful

128204 chopsuey @295
Mixed veggies with shrimp... Meh.

128204 torta sansrival @490
Chocolate. Milk chocolate. Butter. Sanrival! Look how the chocolate is embedded. Really sweet. A bit cloying. At first two bites comes the climax... Then no more. Can scratch your throat cause of the sweetness.

Nothing much to say since aristocrat has been established like over 30 years ago?!

I just noticed not much people go here.

I am grateful enough that my hubby has introduced me to so many different cuisines....be it local, asian or international.

When i was a kid, rather high school to my college life, I am fond of eating simple food. Fast food chains has been my long time go-to resto place! yun at yun lang..JBee, Mcdo, Max's! hahaha!

Aristocrat is one of the places i've been to for the first time just few years ago, eh ang tanda ko na right?!?128539 Many of the Filipino families have known them in the earliest years of their lives.

The branch i've been to was the one in Roxas Blvd. Anyway, yesterday we were here in SM SL branch. Regardless of the Menu Booklet almost torn out, ceiling needs repair, Wall picture frames too old, tables and chairs needs to modernized...I am just in awe how their food tastes better than ever! 128525128525128525

Who doesn't love chicken barbecue served with java rice and atsara? Not me honey!

When you dine at Aristocrat, you know what to order. Their Original Chicken Barbecue is very very delicious! I guess you how it tastes like. Hehe! It consists of three fair sized chicken thigh, breast, and wing. The atsara is a little not enough for me, I want more of it! But that's fine though. Java rice is so flavorful I can eat it only with the peanut sauce which compliments very well.

If you're looking for good ol barbecue at a reasonable price, Aristocrat is the place to be.

Did I mention that I love their Buko Pandan dessert? Now I'm craving!

Should've given this 5 stars if not only for the waiting time that took forever! I guess it was a busy Sunday for the staff though. I like dining better in their Roxas Blvd. branch.

When you're tired, hungry and can't stand the long que on most restaurants and fast food chains you've passed by, then go to Aristocrat. (Well on this branch, I rarely see it full. Or maybe I just don't pay attention.)

The fried chicken is good. I like the java sauce.Uhhh and i'm not sure if its sweet and sour pork or fish we ordered but it was ok. Just ok. 128517

3 stars for the food. +1 because we didn't have to wait! 128513
