We almost missed Matutina's on the way back to Manila from Baguio. Good thing, their Urdaneta location is still surrounded by rice fields so it was easy to turn around and park in their ample parking space. Lunch time gets crowded and understandably, we had to wait. We ordered specialties like Grilled Malaga, Singang na Bangus, Grilled Liempo and Oyster Cake. As expected, the Malaga and Bangus were fresh and fantastic, especially when dipped to their signature vinegar concoction (you can buy a bottle at the cashier). Quite unexpected also was the oyster cake. Usually oyster cakes are oily (especially the one I had in a hawker stand in Singapore), but this one was light and fresh, none of that greasy after-taste. We left satiated and satisfied. If only Matutina's has a branch closer to Metro Manila, I would go there again and again.
