Place was cute and cozy. I liked their food. Value for money is A+.

For the drinks we tried:
Cookies n' Cream Milkshake, Strawberry Milkshake, Ripe Mango Shake and Homemade Iced Tea - of course, mine was the cookies and cream cause nothing goes wrong with Oreo, always.

For starters we got - Onion Rings it was super cripsy and cooked to perfection.

For the main dish, we got 1) Tenderloin Steak 2) Pork BBQ Ribs 3) Grilled Pork Chops and 4) Peppered Salmon Steak - Everything tasted delish!!!!

I don't mind going back to try their other dishes. Tip: order their mashed potato for the sides - its da 128163

This is my kind of restaurant, it's like a house converted to a classy dining place with a lot of chambers inside, impressive interiors with all the chandeliers and different colors and designs per table and each chair.

The Frazzled Cook is like a hidden gem in the street of Morato. They serve all sorts of Italian-American dishes. So we ordered the Truffle Pasta, Herbed Chicken Salad, and Tenderloin and Sausage Pizza. We ate each one by one, and you know you like it when you keep talking about it, judging every flavor and ingredient like a pro.

First I had was pizza, coz the cheese just got me staring at it. The pizza was delicious, the flavor was balanced that it was not too much of one thing. The combination of the beef and the kesong puti worked well though I cannot remember tasting the sausage. Basically, it was good.

Next was the Herbed Chicken Salad. My, the croutons were so good! Thing is, the croutons turned golden brown, maybe because it absorbed too much vinaigrette? But it was delicious! The vinaigrette was a winner, and so was the chicken. The salad had these few simple ingredients but you can never go wrong with the right dressing.

Lastly and behold, the champion of the three, the uber creamy and flavorful Truffle Pasta won my heart and beat me off my pretentious diet. I'm out of words to explain how good it was that I might just leave you with this thought so you would try it for yourself.

Oh and yeah, the Mango Creme Brûlée was soft and light, good neutralizer, fine flavor to taste last after eating all the food we had.

I never really have thought so much about it, but good food makes a good day. It was only lunch time but I already knew my day was complete. 128523

This was one of my backlog posts and clearing it up before the start of 2017!

My last visit to Manila was a spontaneous drive to Tomas Morato and checking out new foodspots. Since my family haven't tried this place yet, I agreed.

We ordered my favorites (hihi, being entitled as the balikbayan, LOL!) – Gambas, Lengua and their Grilled Rosemary Chicken.

Sadly, the dishes weren't as great as how I used to remember it back in their first branch. Nonetheless, they were okay enough for comfort food close to homecooking, especially thr gambas & lengua.

Just always great being back home and enjoying the company of your loved ones. 10084

Some things are better the second time around...

This was the case for Frazzled Cook. There were notable changes from our first visit, including the fact that reservations are no longer necessary in order to dine in here. My other half found out from his co-workers, who just dropped by and were accommodated. So on a night he was craving for something truffle-y, we dropped by.

The hype has apparently died down. Don't get me wrong, they still have a lot of customers. But it's not as packed as it used to be. This comes with perks! It is easier to find a parking spot and the area is more passable in terms of traffic. The dining area is not as crowded and seating is more comfortable. Lastly the staff are more able to focus on their customers. They were attentive and patient! 128077🏻 They made sure that our requests were met in a timely fashion.

Our dinner started off with the cheese logs (think mozzarella sticks) which was great with beer. The truffle mushroom pasta made it to our table and it was executed well. Pasta was al dente and yummy. Lastly, we shared the tenderloin and sausage pizza. It has tenderloin and sausage- obviously- also bell peppers and kesong puti. I didn't find it worth the price. First off, it's a bit small; probably good for two. There were so many bell peppers on the pizza; the taste lingered even after I picked them off one by one. I think there was something missing to balance out the flavors. Well, I didn't like this pizza, but my fiancé thought it was okay. He also picked the peppers off his pizza btw.

Anyway, we enjoyed our dinner here. Much better experience during our revisit.

I've been curious about The Frazzled Cook since one of my friends in IG posted a picture of their food. So I asked my family to have dinner here last Saturday.

The restaurant was packed when we arrived. I had my name listed, and I was 4th in the wait list. After around 10 minutes, finally a table good for four. My sister really wanted to try their ribs so she ordered their Slowly Cooked Pork Ribs (450php). This is cooked for 4 hours and simmered in their signature style sauce. The pork was so tender and really flavorful. I loved that the bones were soft as well. I think not bad for its price. I ordered Paella Negra (375php good for 3 / 635php for 5). This is squid-ink rice topped with shrimps, sausages, and bell peppers. I found this too salty, however, squeezing some lemon in this balanced the taste. I'll have this again, next time!

I also ordered their Frazzled Sisig (225php). This is the usual pork sisig but with their special sauce. Not sure on what's in that, but the sisig tasted good. I loved that it's crunchy! 128541 Finally, we also had Peppered Salmon Steak (335php). I liked how this tasted but I think it was a bit overcooked. It's still juicy, though. The fries on the side were good too!

The service was slow that night, which is quite understandable as the restaurant was really full. I just hope they improve on that.

P.S. The place is really beautiful. There are a lot of IG-worthy spots. I'm not really sure, but for me it's like a big house transformed to be a restaurant. Well, if that's the case then they succeeded in making me feel homey. Happy tummy! 128541

Every Filipino loves food and are blessed to be good in the kitchen as well. In the past years many houses have been renovated and made into restaurants to give their clients a homey feel.And I always look forward to going to these kinds of restaurants.

So my food adventure with my friends brought us to FRAZZLED COOK in Quezon City. The place is not that big but food seemed to be good as I saw their parking space full and reservations was a must.

The interiors was lovely! How I wished I wanted to do the same thing to our humble abode. For starters,we ordered Fresh Green Salad with Vinegrette , then we had Spare Ribs with Fries , Spare Ribs with Mashed Potatoes , Mozarella Cheese Sticks and guess what…Paella Negra! Their Paella Negra was a bomb! Very tasty, just right for my tastebuds and a good hefty serving too! In fact we went home with a doggy bag.

Visit their place if you’re just around the area of Tomas Morato and Timog. I’m sure you will love it just like the way we all did.

Great interiors, not so expensive, food is ok. Almost 600php for 2. Depends on your choices. People are very accommodating. Although you have to come early on weekends, say for your dinner, or call early for reservations, because a lot of customers pile up after 6pm (lagi sila puno) 128517

This quaint shop is located conveniently in Tomas Morato. The interiors were an interesting shabby-chic motif.
True enough, food was very tasty. We ordered onion rings for appetizer and got pork chops and salmon with mango salsa for the main course.
Hmm, for the health conscious, the onion rings were just a tad too salty. We had the chef do something about it. Hehe. They replaced the whole lot! Thank you (: what they served next were really good onion rings. Not the best i've had though, but yeah, good enough.
The chops were really big and juicy. Value for your money right there!
I enjoyed the grilled salmon with mango salsa. I just wished they used salmon steak here and not salmon belly slices.

Overall, i'd give it 3 and a half stars. It could use better space ergonomics. I imagine how crowded this place can be and yet just enough space to move around.
Oh, and 1 more thing, since the servers use yellow aprons over black uniforms, next time i hope they make sure clients don't see the last served sauce in there. Or pen marks, and the like.

Visit this place for the first time and tried one of their best sellers "Grilled Porkchop", comes with 1 siding and I pick the garlic rice. It is served with two piece of grilled porkchop. I can say that the size is good for two people. Porkchop still taste soft and delicious even if it is thick, it is combined with their own sauce. Worth to try when you visit this place.

Been here for quite a couple of times... But i've noticed that the quality of their food kept on downgrading! Like the the fish in their fish and fries is too hard same with the porkchop and pork bbq! 128540 In fairness, their sizzling squid and lamb stew are still yummy! 128077🏻 still love their hello kitty spoons and quaint interior! 128512

Its my moms birthday yesterday and its the first time it fall in a maundy thursday. So me and my siblings were having a hard time finding the perfect place to celebrate her birthday. Most of the resto we initially planned to go are closed during holyweek. So after further research we learned Frazzled Cook is open and they accomodating the 25% off when you use your citibank creditcard. Jackpot!

Frazzled cook is one of the recent breakthrough resto in tomas morato. They are so popular that even in maundy thursday they were jampacked. I love the homey interior of the place and each semi private room got a different theme. This old house turned resto was transformed beautifully. Random wall decoration and mismatched chairs was so cute. My sister order a lot of food for this celebration it was like a fiesta, But here are some of my favorites.

128205Grilled PorkChop - a serving of two delicious porkchops. They were tender and juicy. Love the bbq sauce and the mashed potato that comes with it.
128205Sizzling Squid - this got a little sweet flavor to it because the squid was marinated in sweet mangoes. I love the sweetness of this dish. The squid were also soft and easy to chew.
128205Seafood Paella - this is a big serving of paella and got a generous serving of seafoods on it. It tasted good but I'm very particular with paella flavor. I was expecting the great seafood flavor in the paella but it was quite underwhelming.
128205Pizza Caprese - I love this one. It reminds me of 3M pizza when I was a kid in a goodway.hehe. love the combination of kesong puti and grilled tomatoes.
128205Lengua with mushroom sauce - One of my fave dish. Very delicious and very tender ox tongue.
128205Fries Chicken - this one is ordered because of my pamangkin. Crispy chiclen breading and delicious flavorful chicken meat. 128077

Overall I love this place from the interior to the food. Service was also good but getting the waiters attention was quite hard because of the seperate rooms. Definitely will comeback.128522128077
