We went here at Mesa for dinner last Monday since I’ve been reading a lot of good reviews about this place. So why not give it a try?
The place was fully packed that night so we’re queued on the waiting list (number #4). Unfortunately, we have waited for almost 30 minutes and we’re so hungry. So I immediately followed-up to the receptionist since I’m seeing customers who came just after us getting their tables. To its extent, I was quite pushed off by how the receptionist responded to me when I did the follow-up and this leaves me cold the whole night. I actually reached my boiling point, but I tried my best control my anger that night.
Anyway, about the food; it was served after about 20 minutes. Sisig in a Pouch arrived in first from the orders.
Sisig in a Pouch is good, really good! Sisig was cooked very well and the wrapper was crispy, and you’ll surely create a crispy sound while eating it. Definitely, a must-try!
Salpicao Ostrich – I thought it was good ‘because I find it unique on its own. It has that something that I haven’t taste in whole eating life. But sooner as you consume it, it’s “nakakasawa”.
Chicken & Pork Pochero was just okay for me. Not to mention the chicken was juicy and cooked well. But the sauce left me cold and I find it as an overall, a not too appealing dish.
Although I would say that the food was good, although some of them weren’t that remarkable; I was totally turned off with their customer service. To come back or not!? Maybe not!
