Kanin Club is a destination restaurant for those who love Filipino food whether you are a foreigner or a Filipinos. Tucked in the UP AyalaLand Technohub Mall along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon city, the restaurant has a very welcoming air with its very native interiors of wooden chairs and tables. The walls are decorated with Filipino work of arts typically classical and impressionists paintings. My two guests from Los Angeles, USA were quite impressed with the restaurant's interiors coupled with the excellent native cuisine. It was their last day of vacation and they will be flying off by the afternoon. So, Kanin club was a perfect place to eat native dishes....from crispy dinuguan, daing na bangus, pakbet and laing. While, these dishes were typical Kanin Club always gave an extra twist. The pakbet had fried liempo, the laing had chunks of pork meat and the crispy dinuguan was just succulent. They even ordered the native drink of sago and gulaman which they compared to be better than the Vietnamese drink in LA. The restaurant was quite packed even on an ordinary working day. People came in all sorts of attires...from summery frock to denims to children''s costume of sgt. peoppers band of the Beatles. Teenies in high heels and shorts and the ordinary man looking for a good lunch. As we left the restaurant, my guests exclaimed.....Hmmmmm ......that was good!!

Have eaten so my many times here. The place never disappoints! All must try menus! The dinuguan is our family favorite. Their sinigang rice was a nice surprise. Of course, we always end it with their "halo-halo turon".

ever crossed your mind why there's always a long line of waiting when you go to kanin club? well, simply because everything in this resto is so yummy!

the crispy butterflied tilapia, the lechon kawali dinuguan and the kare-kare are our super duper fave order. it's comfort food at it's maximum level! we order other stuff too and really, everything is good. the prices are also reasonable. that's the other reason why people flock to kanin club. go and try!

It was a rainy night and perfect for chicken tinola and spicy tahong. Instead of the usual ginger laden tinola, it has a mix of onion taste which is different but welcoming. The spicy tahong is another treat, not too spicy but enough twist to it. The serving is good for 2-3 person depending how hungry you are. and the price range is between 300-350 per head. a little bit pricy i think. We ordered juice and thought it would be fresh juice but it turned out to be canned pineapple juice. so i think dont bother with the drinks. just have good plain water.

There are a lot of rice choices too, we had plain rice. This is my second visit to the restaurant, i recommend dont order mixed rice if it does not match your viand. If you are a Filipino you woukd know how to mix your food. Worth bringing your expat friends, they serve SMB btw.
