AT LAST....THIS IS OUR 3RD ATTEMPT EATING THIS RESTAURANT, THIS RESTAURANT IS JUST OPEN RECENTLY, BECAUSE EVERY TIME WE VISIT THIS RESTAURANT IT IS FULL PACK WHAT EVER THE REASONED I DON'T KNOW THAT WHY WE MAKE IT APPOINT TO VISIT THIS RESTAURANT EARLY AS 4PM FOR A DINNER BUFFET. WE ARE SO CURIOUS WHY SO MANY PEOPLE WASTING THERE TIME FOR AN HOUR WAITING OUTSIDE JUST TO EAT THERE BUFFET.... AT 4PM WE RESERVED FOR 7PAX ACCORDING TO THE MANAGER WE SHOULD BE THERE BEFORE 5:30PM IF THEY CALL OUR NAMED AND WE ARE NOT AROUND THEY WILL GAVE OUR SEAT TO OTHERS, SO WHAT WE DO IS TO STAY AT THE CAR IN FRONT OF THE RESTAURANT SO WE WONT MISSED OUR TURN SAME WHAT OTHER COSTUMER IS DOING... AND 5:30PM CAME EVERYBODY WAS EXCITED TO ENTER THERE RESTAURANT SO WE CAN SEE AND EAT THERE LONG WAITING BUFFET........THE BUFFET TABLE IS NOT YET PREPARED WE WAIT FOR ANOTHER 30 MINUTES BEFORE THEY GAVE US A GO SIGNAL TO GET FOOD FROM THE BUFFET TABLE, MY WHOLE FAMILY IS ALREADY GETTING MAD ON ME BECAUSE FOR KEEPING US WAITING LONG BUT AS A MOTHER I AM STILL THE BOSS... THE WAITING AND MONEY IS NOT WORTH TO EAT THIS RESTAURANT THE FOOD IS ONLY ORDINARY AS IF YOU ARE EATING AT THE JAPANESE FAST FOOD RESTAURANT . I ASK OTHER COSTUMER AND THEY SAID IT IS ALSO THERE FIRST TIME EATING THIS RESTAURANT AND THE REASONED THEY HAVE MANY CURIOUS NEW COSTUMER THE COMPANY HAVE SPEND A LOT OF MONEY IN ADVERTISING ALMOST WEEKLY THEY HAVE AN ARTICLE IN THE BROADSHEET..... REGARDING THERE RESTAURANT AND YOU CAN SEE IN THE ARTICLE THERE YUMMY FOOD PICTURE....SO YOU WILL BE TEMPTED
Favorite Dish: LIKE WHAT I SAID NOTHING SPECIAL, THE SHRIMP SIZE IN THERE TEMPURA IS SO SMALL AND I THINK THEY ONLY BOTH THE CAKE THERE SERVED BECAUSE IT TASTE LIKE A CAKE IN A NEAR BY CHEAP BAKERY STORE.. THE TEMPURA SAUCE IS A BIG NO..... THERE KIMCHIE IS BITTER TASTE, THE SUKIYAKI SOUP IS SO SWEET AND ALL AS IN ALL GRILLED ITEMS THEY MARINATE IT IN ONLY ONE FLAVOR IT IS SAME TASTE...I THINK IF SOMEBODY EAT HERE THEY WOULD NOT GO BACK AGAIN

THIS PERMENTED CHICKEN EGG EMBRYO COMMONLY CALLED BALUT A FILIPINO DELICACY NOW IN THE BOTTLE AND EXFORTED IN OTHER COUNTRY .
Balut. That much-loved, much Filipino delicacy: favorite of beer drinkers all over the country it is usually sold late at night but the most yummy Balut sold out 24 hours 7days a week in a small restaurant in Arlegie Street Quiapo they only serving Balut in there restaurant Those who love eating this Filipino delicacy swear by just how tasty it is, especially with beer or any soft drinks. Balut is very nutritious and chock-full of proteins and even consider it as an aphrodisiac.
I highly recommend this buffet restaurant, the staff is courteous and polite, the ambience is real Pilipino, and the food is delicious, the buffet cost php219 (less than US$5/pax) they have over 59 dishes to choose from, name Pilipino food they have it,
Favorite Dish: the Lechon de Leche (sucking pig) and Fresh Talaba (oyster) served nightly. Come and try there native foods-----delicious and really worth your money. They have many branches, greenhills, west avenue to name a few.

Everyday we fast by to this restaurant because my 3rd kids school is on the way to this Petron station where one stands a small place with the sign, "Everything at Steak." , We ignored this restaurant thinking this restaurant is like a typical restaurant that you can find in a gas station, but one day when we pick up my daughter from school she said she want to eat steak so my husband ask me to try this restaurant, the place that can fit less than ten tables with plastic chairs, a glass enclosure of cooks, the place was too crowded, upon my initial observation, and people who were eating were wearing neckties and office clothes its weird.
Favorite Dish: We order Beef Short Ribs PHP150 (US$3.25), Creamy Pesto Pasta PHP120 (US$2.60), and Shrimp Pasta PHP120 (US$2.60). We eat the pasta and I loved the way the cream and pesto complement the firm pasta that was filling up my mouth. The shrimps were firm, fresh, and a good partner to the real tomato base of the other pasta. And now for the ribs. OH MY GOODNESS, was all I could scream in between my slow, relished chews of the tender, juicy, cooked-just-right ribs. The beef was soft, the fats were sinfully d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s, the sauce wonderfully partnered the ribs without overpowering the basic taste of the beef. I couldn't help but eat slowly... I just want each moment to last. I can't believe something so fantastically good can come from a simple-looking place. I was already sorry for judging the place by its exteriors. With the kind of heavenly food Everything At Steak serves, I wouldn't mind digging in even if I had to sit in the middle of the street.

This is not an Italian restaurant It a serve good pasta Conti, the restaurant features an eclectic mix of Filipino, European and a few Japanese dishes, along with sumptuous pastries and desserts, the house specialty. The simple decor is highlighted by a glass-enclosed garden. If you haven't eaten at this place, you're missing a lot. The food is great, service is number #1 and the owners are very friendly. try this restaurant. Their pastry shop is to die for, especially their Mango bravo (meringue, fresh mango slices whipped cream and chocolate filling) Their mango bravo cakes cost Php695 (US$15) for a whole cake that about 7 inches in height and 10 inches in diameter, they can feed a lot of people.. Worth every penny. Just make sure you either make a reservation or come early as lines can get quite long for a table. It is the only bakeshop I know that has a full line of meringue cake concoctions, but Conti?s meringue is different. You will enjoy the crunch outside and the soft texture inside. Airy and crunchy; isn?t that a combination which is hard to imitate? I bake cake and I should know.
Favorite Dish: The Baked Salmon is delish and is absolutely great value for money. Mango Bravo is out of this world chicken pie it was really good the crust was so flaky and buttery, you could feel the pastry sheets playing inside your mouth. The real butter complements the rich chicken and vegetable mixture. The chicken pie is so tender and rich, not at all like the regular "empanadas" you see in other bakeshops. It?s so rich that you can see oil spots on the paper or in the box that it is placed in. Truly, it is pure, honest-to-goodness home-baked chicken , variants come in different flavors: there?s embutido, ham and cheese, and tuna; and they come in different shapes to distinguish them from one another.
