“Authentic Filipino Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

Restaurant, non aircon, situated in a row of old shophouse, with a police station occupying corner lot. Restaurant operates every evenings. Also for lunch over the weekends. Closes every 3rd Monday of each month. Very clean and cosy environment with dim lightings and lively music. Very friendly owners, husband Malaysian and wife Filipino.
Varieties of menu, including beers. Had deep fried pork leg, fried fish sour soup, pork satay and minced pork spring roll among two of us. Pork skin was crispy and tangy, with juicy and tender meat. Goes well with sambal belacan (spicy prawn paste) and cold beers. Pork satay with big chunk of meat (no peanut sauce). All very yummy. Prices reasonable. Together with 2 small bottles of beer and 1 glass of fruit juice cost us RM86.

“One night stand”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

Good : Food is nice as well as the people. Loved the pork in vegetable soup - you can really taste the pork in the broth. And the deep fried pork leg is well portioned for four pax, succulent juicy and tender. Never had Philippines cuisine before hence none to compare.

Not so good : The restaurant charge 15% off our bill for service, the most expensive we ever encountered in Kuching (menu stated 10% only). Double check your bill before you pay in case you are charged for foods that you never had on your table (eg peanuts).

Conclusion : It's like a one night stand thingy, had it so good once and may be will not coming back.

“Nice place for something a little different”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

I've been passing by this place so many times everytime I visit Kuching, so I finally made it a point to pay a call and try it. No regret, definitely. Tried the Liemposilog - fried pork cutlet with fried egg on garlic rice, and washed it down with an Asahi. It tasted just fine. Not fantastic, mind, but quite alright. Not pricey, either.

Haven't tried other stuff so can't comment too much. I've been to Manila before and local food there can be a little hit and miss. Here is definitely not the best of what you can expect of Pinoy food, but I found it passable.

“Excellent Pork”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

I enjoyed the (pork) lechon kawalii. Most places this cut is about 80% fat, but here it was more meat than fat!
A nice stroll along Jalan Padungan, no worries if its raining, as there is near-continuous awnings.

And a good presentation, real dishes of an interesting design. The pork served on a banana leaf. So many restaurants here use plastic plates!
