Recipes by Cafe Metro

It was a lazy afternoon but I don't want to go home yet, so I texted friends if they're available for dinner. Fortunately, they are free so we decided to have dinner at Recipes by Cafe Metro.

I've read lots of positive reviews about this place that my visit was a little overdue. Recipes by Cafe Metro offers delectable Filipino dishes.

We ordered some of the Recipes Favorites. Starting with the most popular dish: Gising Gising (Php 170)

Gising Gising

Gising Gising is chopped Baguio beans with ground pork and coconut cream. This dish is quite similar to Bicol Express though the spicyness of this dish is a little mild compared to Bicol Express. I'm not much into veggies, but I fell in love with this dish! Even a friend who's a little picky with his veggies dug in. :)

We also had the Crispy Tilapia (Php 215) and the Lechon Kawali with Kangkong (Php 215).

Crispy Tilapia
Lechon Kawali with Kangkong

If I could only eat fish for the rest of my life, I'd choose tilapia. I'm glad they have Crispy Tilapia. I liked munching on these, but I hoped it was made crispier. Another bestselling dish is the Lechon Kawali with Kangkong, which is somehow soaked in a soy-based sauce, was still able to retain its crispiness. It was gone in minutes! :)

The dish that got everyone's hearts: General's Chicken (Php 215)

General's Chicken

General's Chicken has deep fried chicken fillets and eggplant slices with sweet spicy sauce. It was really good that you'll forget eating this with rice. I must say that General's Chicken is heavenly! A must-try when you visit Recipes.

With its delicious dishes at reasonable prices, Recipes by Cafe Metro is a must-try place. The friendly crew is also a big plus. I'd love to have another serving of Gising Gising and General's Chicken.

I'd definitely go back for more, Recipes! :)

  10. Now that I've thought about it, I'm confused if your posts are really short, or you just do a really good job in keeping your reader's attention span. Visiting this blog just makes me so hooked that I don't even notice how long I've read already.:)
