“Great Filipino Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

I have been to Wooden Spoon about 4-5 times since it opened on Katipunan. It has never failed to surprise me. It puts a wonderful twist on Classic Filipino dishes. My personal favorites are the dinakdakan and the kare-kare. It's a great date place.

“Supposed to be Very Good, if all our orders isn't salty.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Binagoongan given is salty but the other orders was as salty if not, way to salty than binagoongan. From Rice that we've ordered to caldereta to adobo to dinakdakan etc. Their Iced Tea for me is just your typical Iced Tea. Serving size is great....

“Honest substance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Here’s a good Filipino restaurant. It’s a no frills place: but they provide tasty fare, quick service (even too fast!), homely atmosphere. We tried a few dishes, all nice. A good fried rice with crispy tiny fishes (perhaps a little too much garlic in it), lechon kawali (fried bits of pork) crunchy and delicious, a legit – though a bit scarce in size – kare kare (beef stew with vegetables cooked in peanut butter sauce), some pleasant fish croquettes and a yummy eggplant omelette.

The tables are small in size, reduced to the bare essential and close to each other to make the best use of the limited space available. If you’re looking for privacy, fancy tablecloths and food with strange and long names which you never heard of, it’s not your restaurant. Go for nouvelle cuisine. But if you’re after honest substance and good Filipino food, that’s your place.

“Best place for Filipino food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

I usually don't like eating Filipino food at restaurants because I can have them at home. But Wooden Spoon is an exception. They serve very excellent food, like how your grandma would cook it, and with a twist too. I love the crab pancit! It's nothing like i've ever had before. For travelers visiting the Philippines for the first time, this is the best place to eat Filipino food, for a very reasonable price.

“Best Filipino!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

A fresh take on Filipino food! Seriously delicious! I will definitely be back! The crab pancit is something so unique and I am Filipino. The Dinakdaan is awesome. And you must try Reyna Blanca for dessert!
