This restaurant is an oasis of quality food in Ermita/Malate. The hummus is fantastic. The prices are reasonable. The owner is personable and a real gentleman who takes time to get to know his customers. And they cook their kebabs on a little charcoal fire in the street. I highly recommend giving this place a try. We will be back... More
