847 Banawe corner Linao Street, Quezon City
Had lunch today with friends at Chef Robert Banawe. I was the one who decided on the place, wanted to try it out since it’s newly opened.
The first thing I noticed is the big teddy bear on display and also the sign that it has free wifi. Seems like a lot of establishments are offering free wifi now, makes it easier for us to connect to the internet 🙂
We ordered 3 different solo dishes but we ended up sharing coz we wanted to try out all of it.
Here are what we ordered:
- Korean Beef Stew(Php 185)
While this was served, we didn’t see the meat. The sauce (that looked like soup already) was overwhelming, we have to use the spoon and scoop up the meat so we can see 😛 The meat was tender, sauce is pretty good as well. It’s their specialty after all!
- Pork Cutlet in Mushroom Gravy (Php 135)
Best presentation from all the main dishes we ordered. This is porkchop with mushroom gravy sauce. Tasted okay, similar with the burger steak of Jollibee just that it’s porkchop instead of burger 😛 Go figure 🙂
- Fish Fillet in Hollandaise Sauce (Php 135)
The fish is thin & fresh but the sauce is blah. We all agreed that the sauce ruined the dish, it tasted like pure butter. I think it’s better if they just use garlic sauce, it might work well with the fish.
- Mango Banana Shake (Php 75)
This one is good. Fresh Mango & Banana blended together is perfect.
- Triple Chocolate Mousse (Php 115)
Layers of bittersweet, white & milk chocolate topped with chocolate chips. Presentation is good. Tasted okay, just like how triple chocolate mousse should be.
Chef Robert is not really my type of restaurant but worth a try. 🙂
