Grilled Tomato: Kebabs, Keemas and More

Note: This establishment is already closed.

PEx Food Club was planning to try this Dutch place near Katipunan. However, it was closed so we had to find a Plan B, which brought us to Grilled Tomato.

the indoor area

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 alfresco 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

Beef Kebab is served with butter rice, grilled tomato, and iced tea.

Milo Overload

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

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.

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.

  1. Uhm, I'm interested for that Milo Overload. I thought at first that it's like bottomless. Guess I'm wrong.


  2. I just love the last part and lemme quote "BF, thanks for surprising me" :D Muah. Had fun with you guys.

  3. Hokage, is that you? You can create Milo Overload at home, IMO. :)
    jssica, yeah, didn't really expect that he's coming. So I really had to mention it here. ahihi. ;)

  4. ^Yep, it's me. Will try that one. =)
