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!

I went here at the SM Mall of Asia branch of BonChon chicken the afternoon before going to Ilocos for late lunch and early snack. I ordered for my all-time favorite Chicken Burger sandwich together with fries (Letter D from the menu set) [Soy garlic chicken with regular mayo].
There were quite amount of people dining in that time but that doesn’t hamper them for serving the food faster. I was in the middle of consuming my food when a big fly plunged into my drink, and I haven’t sip it yet. I told the crew about it, and I decided to just get me a bottled water; but, he insisted to have it replaced then. Okay, that was nice!
Supposed to be a perfect score for the ratings, but still, flies were flying around the place! Nyay!

I missed eating here.. It’s been almost months since I last ate this resto’s food. So last weekend/movie night, we ate here for dinner before catching some fire at the cinema (or rather watching The Hunger Games – Catching Fire). I got my super favorite Bacon rice as the main siding, and Tuna fettuccine for pasta, to try something new. I chose Farm fresh mushroom as my chicken’s sauce.
The pasta was okay, I thought it has lesser sauce and not too tasty or just bland. The farm fresh mushroom sauce fits perfectly with the chicken so I guess this should also be included among my favorites. The bacon rice was good as always.
Too bad, Sans Rival wasn’t available that night since I was craving for dessert after eating chicken. 😦
