“A satisfying meal in an unfamiliar place.”
Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

Visiting the Philippines, I was told that The Aristocrat Restaurant was a local favourite.

I tried the BBQ pork meal with Java rice. The rice was not anything special, but the pork was tender and tasty. The dish is served with a sachet of "java sauce" that is used for the meat. It is a sweet peanut sauce tht is great for dipping.

I also tried the Gulaman at Sago, which is a sweet drink with tapioca and jello. This is a traditional dessert/drink found in the Philippines.

It was nice and cold, and not overly sweet. It hit the right spot after having lunch.

Although I was not blown away by the food, it was pleasant and did not disappoint.

“Famous with Filipinos”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

but if you are a westerner this place isn't for you. It's crowded, smells and the food is local food.

“expensive”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

This is very old place where my mom used to eat before. But i think the quality of the food doesnt worth the expensive price.
