Simple Eats: H Cuisine

We were prodded by the article written by Anton Diaz of Our Awesome Planet on H Cuisine. Being near my office, we decided to try this restaurant for lunch today. H Cuisine is located in between Rub and Tomassi. We arrived a wee bit early (10:30) and decided to wait till 11AM. However, when we called them up, we were informed that they open at 11:30AM so we decided to scout an area for a project and come back. Along the way, we saw my cousin, Dr. John Tan and decided to invite him for lunch.

H Cuisine is owned by Chef Hannah Herrera with her credentials and magazine articles highlighted on a wall. The restaurant has a homey feel to it. Interiors were cleverly designed in blue and white colors. It’s a restaurant that you wouldn’t feel awkward spending an afternoon in.




Pumpkin Soup (PHP108.00)
Soup for the day was pumpkin soup. Loved that there were bits and pieces of unsquashed pumpkin. Good starter for our lunch.

Teriyaki Glazed Milk Fish Belly (PHP198.00)
This is really good. The 3 pieces wasn’t enough for the 3 of us! It was sweet and tasty in the right places.

Eggplant Moussaka (PHP178.00)

Breaded Chicken Parmesan Rolls (PHP288.00)
This was definitely unseasoned. It came very bland. We had to request Knorr seasoning for it. This would have been nice if it was seasoned correctly. A dash of salt and pepper would have made this perfect. We ordered the one for sharing.

Most Awesome Angus Beef Belly (PHP428.00)
With a name like that and a tag line of the restaurant, we had to try their house specialty. We ordered the one for sharing. The beef was definitely delicious. It was soft and tasty. Definitely a must try!

We ended the wonderful pre-Birthday lunch with a blueberry cheesecake (PHP88.00).

Simple Eats: Matsuri

My dad and I tried out Matsuri for lunch today. It’s located along Tomas Morato in the area that used to be Jozu. Owned by the same group of people, Matsuri offers Order All You Can, Eat All You Can Japanese food. If you’re used to Jozu, the food they serve is the same except that you get to order a LOT of it without worrying about the cost.

For Mondays – Fridays Lunch, the price is PHP495.00 while for Dinner and other days, its PHP595.00.

The food seemed to taste the same as Jozu. I still like their Kamameshi rice. Their Tempura is still good. Servings are the same as a full sized order. The problem with the restaurant though is that the food TOOOOO long to come out. It took at least 30 minutes before our Salmon Sashimi, Tempura Crunch, and another Sushi came out. It took another 15 minutes before the other dishes came out after that. My dad threatened to cancel the orders already since it was taking them too long to serve SUSHI.

Anyhow, here are pictures of what we had. Photos were only taken using my iPod Instagram.
