Though they offer ala carte dishes like Angry Butter Wings (Php 200), Creamy White Wings (Php 200) and Roast Beef Nachos (Php 220), the menu is mostly combos. You have three combo options. You may order meat with unli rice for Php 160.00. If you’re gonna add 1 side dish, it would be Php 210.00 in total. Or you are really hungry make it with two side dishes for Php 250.00.

The choices for the meat are: Roast Beef, Smoked Bacon, Chicken or Fish Fillet.

I, together with a friend, had the third combo: 1 meat, unli rice and two side dishes.

I had a plate of roast beef, rice, tuyo aglio olio and mashed potato. The roast beef was not bad but not too great either. It was tender but slightly dry. It was a little bland but since the gravy was salty, I found dipping it with the gravy enjoyable.

The tuyo aglio olio (yes, tuyo!) was interesting. I liked the subtle saltiness coming from the tuyo flakes and the sweetness from the crush tomatoes. My only problem was that the pasta was a little overcooked.

I did not like the mashed potato that much. It’s a good thing that the gravy was peppery, it overrode the weird taste from the potato.

My friend also had roast beef slices but with Italian Macaroni and Pesto Pasta. He had the same feedback as what I had with the roast beef – tender but dry. He was so disappointed with the Pesto Pasta. It lacked pesto and salt — bland overcooked pesto pasta.

He liked the Italian Macaroni though. It had a good balance of sweetness and spiciness. It was a little salty though.
