“Average taste...”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Dined here recently as this is one of the few restaurants present in J Centre Mall. It was a bit crowded when we arrived, compared to the Dong Juan across it. We were thinking food must be good.

We ordered baked scallops, sinigang na tangigue, sizzling gambas and pork belly. They ran out of baked scallops that time. Their rice is unlimited. The sinigang soup tasted okay. But the tangigue was a pity. We expected bigger slice of the fish (see photo). The gambas were not so great too. We requested it not too spicy, but it ended up a little sweet instead. Also the shrimp tasted like it was a meat extender. The pork belly is ok. I wasn't able to finish my 1 scoop of rice so I didn't enjoy their unli rice. I like their hot calamansi juice though.

Good thing their service is quick. It made up for the food.
