Inspired by the three-generations of the owner’s family from three distinct hometowns – Quezon, Tarlac and Bacolod, they provide a homemade-Filipino staple with authentic flavors prepared in a traditional way but with a modern twist.
Here’s some of the dishes that I was able to try during our visit:

As a starters, you may want to start your meal with these barbecue.  This was braised in pineapple sauce, star anise pepper and atsara. It was tender but I find it a bit overcooked.  Dip into the vinegar or add some pickles for additional flavor.

Isaw 6 Sticks (Php185)

Valenciana (Php495) – turmeric glutinous rice with shrimp, pork, chicken and vegetables. This is an Ilonggo version of Paella.  I am amazed as it was loaded with seafood and meat.  The texture of the sticky rice was soft and smooth, too.  It might taste bland to some, but I suggest to get more seafood to get that flavor.

Lechon na Ulo ng Baboy (Php949) – Roasted half pig head served with home-made thin breads, salsa, mustard leaves and burong isda.  Make sure to call them for advanced order as they have limited number of pork head in a day. I really liked when the meat was placed in a bread along with all the veggies.  The crispiness of the pork and the chewiness of the bread really goes well.  It was tasty. I just wish they would carefully cook it to avoid being over-cooked.

Pata Humba – Pork pata with banana blossom, pineapple saba and potatoes. It smelled and tasted really good. Pork was tender and succulent.

There also lots of Fried Rice to choose from. There’s Bagoong Fried Rice (Php225), Taba ng Talangka at Hipon (Php359) and Kalkag Rice (Php215) which is good for 2-3 persons already.

Escabeche na Isda – fried fish in a sweet and sour sauce, cilantro and mango salsa. I find the fish a bit dry.  Good thing the sauce made up for it.  Both sweetness and sourness balanced the flavor of this dish.

Laing with Pork and Shrimp – Taro leaves cooked in coconut milk with pork and shrimps. This was creamy and I appreciated that the taro leaves was cooked to perfectly.  The pork was tender and crispy and blended well with the vegetables.

Vegetable Platter (Php359)

For dessert, make sure to try Tibok-tibok (Php245) – This is a Kapampangan flan made of Carabao’s milk and lime zest.  Really, save some room for this! This is definitely one of my favorites here in Sartin.
