Filipino Favorites at Alex III

Alex III is one of the places that has been sitting on my must-visit list for quite a while. Mind you, though I try to cross out everything, this list is just becoming scarier each day. 

From the same family who brought us Aristocrat and Reyes Barbecue, Alex III has been serving delicious Filipino comfort food for more than 25 years.

I got to try Alex III's Good for 3 Set Menu One (Php 599), which is complete meal with Pinakbet sa Bagnet, Crispy Tiyan ng Bangus, Steamed Rice and Iced Tea.

Pinakbet sa Bagnet

Don't forget to ask for lechon sauce for the bagnet, truly loved this dish!

Crispy Tiyan ng Bangus

I liked the bangus too, I wished it was crunchier though. :)

I didn't miss on having the Classic Chicken Barbecue (Bone-in 3 pcs, Php 199). 

Classic Chicken Barbecue

An all-too-familiar dish that brings back that lots of memories. The meat is juicy and flavorful to the bones, judge me not if I forget about my manners and eat this with my bare hands. 

A great meal isn't complete without desserts, and Alex III has a good lot of Filipino desserts to choose from.

It really felt like Christmas as soon as I was served the Bibingka (Php 75) and Puto Bungbong (Php 75).

Puto Bungbong

The bibingka has salted egg inside, which I love. The Puto Bungbong was as exceptional too. 

I also had the Pandan Jellied Tapioca (Php 45) and Guinumis (Php 65).

Alex III also has individual set meals and party menu for quite reasonable prices. Personally, I'm dying to try their version of Kare-Kare, as a work colleague told me that it was to die for. I'd love to visit their other 
branches to try their Japanese menu as well. This is one place that I'm sure my family and friends would really enjoy. 

Thanks to Mr. Norman Cruz of Alex III and to my fellow foodie Alfred for this awesome lunch.

  2. Hello, Michy! Thanks! Will invite you again to the other branches. I know naman how you love Japanese food! Ms. Jessica Choy, thanks for that comment. Yes, the bagnet is really good!

    1. Thanks for having me, Alfred! Yeah, I do love Japanese food! :)

  3. What makes them different from Aristocrat's? More options? Food looks good a. =)

    1. I haven't been to Aristocrat for quite a while. haha. Yes, everything was good! :)

  4. Im a fan of Filipino dishes! *arms raised to the highest level!* specially puto bungbong ;)

  5. I haven't been here for quite some time, this is worth a try. =)

  6. This actually brings back memories - we used to eat a lot there and we should again, too! <3

  7. I haven't tried Alex III yet, but it's on my bucket list too! I just know that it's by the family who brought us Aristocrat and Reyes Barbecue, so this is probably just as good. Will have to visit this resto soon!

  8. whoah. they almost have same food offers at Aristocrat huh! i wish to try Alex III in Morato soon. :)

  9. Waaah they have Puto Bumbong my favorite!!! My mom always requests that we eat at Alex III whenever she vacations here from the US. :D


  10. The name Alex III feels like it's a high end restaurant. I'm sure my family would love eating at Alex because the foods are very affordable and they will enjoy the Filipino dishes but where in Fairview is it located, we are near Fairview kasi? - Karen

    1. Here's the address of the Fairview branch: Chevelle St cor Pontiac St
      Fairview, Quezon City

  11. The pinakbet looks good, and I like the idea of serving local foods like puto bumbong, bibingka ang ginumis. I like ginumis most!

  12. I have tried Piankbet Bagnet at Homey's Cafe. And I have been craving for it since then. I wonder if Alex III tastes as good as the one in Homey's. The desserts look good though.

    1. Oh, I haven't tried Homey's Cafe yet. :) Will try that soon!
