Friends and Family is a restaurant that offers comfort Filipino dishes that we truly love. They surely knows how to bring out our favorite Filipino dishes the way it was cooked in our own premises.
The place is homey with lots of greens to obtain a tropical vibe. There’s couches available for you to have a relaxing dining experience. There’s also alfresco area with wooded tables and chairs also in shades of green.
They recently launched their Daily Specials which you can take advantage when you’re craving for something on that specific day:
Monday’s Lauriat (Php295) – This includes 1 stick F&F Pork BBQ, Lumpiang Shanghai, F&F Pancit, Crispy Kangkong and Garlic Rice
It’s a fully loaded meal already. The Pork BBQ was tender and well-marinated. I love that it has that a bit of sweet and savory flavor in it. Pancit was topped with lots of vegetables and meat, too. Kangkong was really crispy and I must say that I enjoyed this a lot.
Tuesday Takaw! Beef Pares, Rice and Soup (Php295)
Beef Pares was fork-tender. Its soup was thick and I must say, there’s a lot. It’s also a good thing that there’s only minimal star-anise used.
Wednesday Hump Day – Inihaw na Ulo ng Salmon with Atchara and Special Soy (Php475)
This Salmon was really fresh and good! It was grilled perfectly. Atchara and the soy sauce helped removed that fishy taste in it.
Thursday in the North – Grilled Porkbelly Dinakdakan (Php250) – it has some chopped with chili, onion and cilantro
This would probably be my favorite here. I mean, the pork was crispy yet tender, its sauce was just so good. I was not able to clarify if they used pork brain in here but I can surely taste some mayonnaise.
Friday Yah Yah Yah! – Pinaputok na Hito (Php295) – fried to perfection Hito with homemade atsara and vinegar.
Chinatown Sweet & Sour Fried Chicken (Php350) – sweet and sour with crispy fried chicken.
Saturday with Friends – Homestyle Paksiw na Lechon (Php295)
It tasted a bit sweet, a little spicy yet savory, just how I wanted Paksiw na Lechon. This is one of my favorite Filipino dishes and I must say that I really liked the way they cook it.
Family Sunday – Sizzling Roast U.S Beef with Mushrooms and Gravy (Php550)
Another favorite! Even the potatoes on the side tasted great! The Roast Beef was definitely smoking goodness!
For drinks, I ordered Yema Crema which was too sweet for me.
Do not forget to have some desserts. We had their Ube Cake and it was really really good!
