All-Pinoy Goodness At Mesa Filipino Moderne

With no plans for the night, B and I met up with his sister at Mesa Filipino Moderne in Greenbelt 5 because we’re kaladkarin like that. :) They have a spacious al fresco dining area but the rain was pouring so heavily so we ended up inside the restaurant. :)

Their selection is comprised mostly of classic Pinoy favorites with a slight, modern twist. They have elephant clams, lechon and laing too! :) Prices are pocket-friendly as well–now that’s true the essence of a genuine Pinoy restaurant. Haha! :)

Inihaw Sampler (Php670)

B and I ordered Inihaw Sampler (Php670), which is generous enough to be shared by four people. For its price, it was a steal. When our orders were being taken, Ate Debbie was still on her way to meet us. Funny how the waiter asked me twice if it was just me and my boyfriend who’ll be dining. :p I guess he was a little puzzled as to how two people could consume one huge plate of chicken, squid, shrimp, etc. πŸ˜€

I ate most of the squid (especially the bits with little tentacles–is that what you call it?) because B hates that part. I thought the chicken had the most flavor–the shrimp was a little bland as well as the squid. It could use a bit more seasoning.

Seafood Mix in Chili Sauce (Php320)

We also ordered Seafood Mix in Chili Sauce (Php320), which reminded us of our Singapore trip last July. Hmm, I wonder why we didn’t order the Crab instead? Anyway, I think B liked it the most because it was spicy–what else? πŸ˜€

Here’s another photo of the Seafood Mix. Tell me, who has the prettiest picture? πŸ˜€ Funny how we had two versions of shrimps and mussels that night, noh?

Sisig Rice (Php170)

This was my favorite thing on the table that night! Sisig Rice (Php170)! One order is good for three people, given that you don’t have appetites of grown men. :) The waiter will mix the egg for you so plus point for that. Then again, I wish we did it ourselves so I could have taken a photo of it with the egg sitting pretty on top. πŸ˜›

The compulsory vanity shot + the background

By the way, the place gets seriously packed. Luckily, we came in before the late-night diners arrived. The booths are the best seats in the house. Β It’s right beside Max Brenner Chocolate Bar, which I have to try soon. I’m curious to see if they’re better than Chocolate Fire. :)
