First stop-- ABASERIA. (Actually, we've discovered other restos before this, but I wasn't into blogging then and I was not able to take much pictures. But I vowed to myself that I will visit each of them again, for blog purposes.)
|Once-full-now-empty dining area (we were the last ones to go)|
|Wide array of native products to choose from (Yep, they are selling these stuffs)|
|On the other side of that wall is a little function room cum bazaar of colorful native accessories.|
|Exclusive dining area with native accessories on the side for sale|
|Native wooden products also for sale|
We were right away impressed with the cozy feel of the place. But we were more impressed with the service. The attendant (whom I believe was the owner) was kind enough to inform us that they have half-orders, since some of their servings are good for 3-4 persons.
The food? Ah, yes. I have to make a disclaimer at this point. I am not a very good food critic, since I don't eat as much vegetables as what a healthy person should eat and I don't enjoy as much eating seafoods. For a very picky person like me, the food as beyond great. Here's what we had:
|Monggo with gata (half-order)|
|Crispy roasted pork (half-order)|
|Chicken curry (with pineapple something2x-- sorry I forgot the name,|
but believe me, it added a more tangy taste to the curry)
|The 'look' of satisfied customers :-)|
My rating: Outstanding (4/5)
Next visit: Soon!!! And I'll make sure to shop for some accessories.
