Actually, I've tested all their newest food offerings. All are delicious, it taste good same as how it looks like.

I love their Bulalo the most.  Beef is so tender and the soup has a unique taste. Another one is the Quezo Fundido, I can't explain the taste of the chips, but it has a perfect combination with Quezo fundido.

Both desserts are yummy, I love leche plan and macaroon and they serve it as one so just wow. Mango cheesecake is recommendable too.

Visit their restaurant! Hope you guys can also try their dishes. Big eaters and food lovers, what are you waiting for? Come and enjoy! Food is Life.. Good food is for a better life! :)
