Guisados, Congressional Ave.

I’ve been driving past this place every week and I finally found the time to stop by. Guisados, the place where all the pretty motorbikes are lined up everyday.

The place feels a bit claustrophobic, its like being in the car. Parking space would only accomodate about 4 cars at most. But the food would compensate for that. We had the sample taste of the soft tacos, sisig appetizer and an extra corn on th side.

Here’s what it would look like from the outside.

This would be the inside of the place. The place is very small and would accommodate only a few number of families and friends.

Sizzling Sisig Php 150 which came with soft tacos and a spicy sauce. I ordered an extra sour cream sauce on the side.

5 sampler tacos Php 239. It may look small but it is VERY filling.

Budget: At most your budget would probably be Php 500 for 2 persons. The price ranges from about 100-300 per meal. Orders are just the right serving size.

Recommendation: I really loved the sisig. They told us that the soft tacos were the best sellers. But we tried all of the soft tacos and I still say that the sisig should be a best seller.

I would definitely come back here for a quick merienda meal. The location and parking is probably the only downside to this place, but then again Congressional is a booming place for food parks and new restaurants. I hope to see more in their menu next time! Would definitely come back for more of that Sisig and next time I’d like to try their Quesadillas when I finally can stomach cheese after this stomach flu.

Molcajete Mexican Cantina + Cerveceria, Antipolo

Just as you enter Antipolo from the Ortigas extension way right before Beverly hills village is this really great and chill restaurant. You wont spot it right away but as soon as you see the sign of Beverly hills village be on the lookout on the right side for this place. The location is a bit far from the city so coming here you might want to plan something else to do in Antipolo. I think that coming here for dinner is more advisable as according to the owners it gets cold at night and it is nice to sit outside and have a beer or two and some Mexican food.

Here’s the front of the restaurant.

The vibe here is definitely chill, as the owner described it to me. He wanted something easy and fresh. Everything here is made from fresh ingredients. So the owner/chef makes everything from scratch.

Nachos, Php 170. Pretty good for the price. Just your usual simple Nachos. It’s really nice that he just kept the usual kind of flavors you find in Nachos.

Pollo Pesto + Cheese, Quesadillas, Php 160. This comes with garlic sauce and chili sauce. I really loved this, it was delicious. The pesto and the cheese really tasted good together.

Chiptole wings with Bleu Cheese, Php 195. SPICY. I was expecting spicy but not this spicy, however the flavor is good.

Fish Baja- soft taco, Php 95

Sisig Burrito, Php 175. (Pequeno/small size) This was really good and the sisig is the pork shoulder sisig.

Rocky Road Fudge Cake, Php 135. Hot and cold concept, hot chocolate lava kind of cake with nuts under a scoop of ice cream with some marshmallows.

I loved that the owners didn’t want anything fancy but just wanted to keep everything on the menu easy like comfort food. When you think of Mexican you would usually get something kind of oily right? but not here. I did not get any oil drippings on me from some cheese that I normally get from Mexican restaurants. Nothing super heavy but not light either. Maybe if you have plans on going up Antipolo or visiting places like the Pinto Museum you could pass by here on the way up to get some take out or to hang out with your friends after biking up Antipolo.
