PEx Food Club was planning to try this Dutch place near Katipunan. However, it was closed a week earlier so we had to find a Plan B, which brought us to Grilled Tomato.
Grilled Tomato is a small Persian resto located near Miriam and Ateneo. Personally, I thought the name is kinda awkward, it sounded like a burger resto or an Italian resto at first. The place has al fresco and indoor areas. From the indoor area, one has to go outside to order. The place reminded me of Uncle Moe's, another Persian resto located in Ortigas.
I ordered 2 pcs Beef Kebab (Php 110), extra pita (Php 10) and one of their specialties, Milo Overload (Php 70)
Beef Kebab is served with butter rice, grilled tomato and iced tea.
There is nothing special about the Milo Overload. It's just iced chocolate topped with cream and more Milo.
A fellow food club member ordered Kebab Gyro (Php 60)
Kebab Gyro is grilled meat and chopped vegetables wrapped in pita bread. She dismissed it as too dry.
Good thing the resto serves Coors beer and Manila beer that some fellow foodies usually require (hahaha).
I found the kebab bland. Worse, the yogurt-garlic sauce is bland too. Being a Persian food uber-fan, I was quite disappointed, thinking that it would reach Uncle Moe's level.
And now I miss the authentic Kebab. :(
On a lighter note: BF, thanks for surprising me! :)
