Food Review: Kuya J Restaurant in Waltermart, Makati
It was not I was expecting it was, actually. Honestly, I was expecting a fast food vibe! Heehee! The reason I was expecting it would be something of a fast food restaurant was because of it's commercial. Hehehe
The place was pretty packed when we got there, so my expectations were high.
We only ordered 2 dishes that time, their Crispy Pata and Kare-kare, I was hoping for a really good bagoong to go with their kare-kare.
I'm not sure if we're just really hungry that time that it tested my patience but our order took almost an hour. Yes, almost an hour. I think the Kuya J Restaurant branch at Waltermart has short number of crew. I mean their servers were just 2 or 3, and the people dining in that place were a lot, though they have a pretty small place, but still. People were even lining up outside the resto at the time!
So when our orders came, they were in batch. Lol! I think the first that came on our table was the kare-kare and rice. Speaking of rice, I don't know what's up with their rice because of that pepper something on top of it! What's happening?! Lol
|Kare-kare | P399.00|
And oh, the bagoong that came with kare-kare wasn't that good. :(
A few minutes later, the Crispy Pata came!
|Crispy Pata | Reg P490.00 ; Fam P695.00|
The kids ordered shakes. I say don't. It tastes artificial. I'm not really sure if it was just powdered juice, but I'm sure it doesn't taste natural watermelon. Ugh! Idk with the mango shake though, I didn't taste it.
I gotta say though, I love their interior and the utensils they have! And they have great lighting, too! Props to that!
|I'm so sorry for this shot, it looks like I was taking a photo of the A/C unit hahaha!|
They only have 2 high chairs. :( So we tried to wait for the high chair to be done with the other customer/s but unfortunately they didn't finish until we're done. So yes, I tried feeding Maco while she was trying to reach the walls on my back. :-/ Can't the restaurants here in the Philippines have at least 5 high chairs??? Oh well.
