Mesa Filipino Moderne SM North EDSA

Sometimes you would find yourself with your friends strolling, travelling, or perhaps bullying. However, friends are the people you can have heart-to-heart talks with. This is exactly what you can do when you take a seat with your friends at mesa while enjoying the delectable dishes being served.Image

The Mesa opened last July 2013, but I haven’t noticed it that much, because it is located on the topmost  floor of the mall where people seldom pass by. After the waitress has taken our orders, we saw this stunning glass. See?Image

Melch, Jeck, and I love their Tinapa Rice (P170.00) which you can have as a dish on its own, because it’s really delicious and it also comes with salted egg.

However, the servings are small, so we ordered Sisig Rice (P 185.00). This one has poached egg on top. We still love the tinapa rice better.Image

Meanwhile, we ordered Laing 2 Ways (P 170.00) off the menu’s veggie section. It is called two ways, because one of the dishes is dry and the other is wet. Both versions were lip-smacking! They taste the same, but differ in texture, okay?Image

The Binagoongang Baboy ni Kaka (225.00) is a must-try on their menu, so we agreed to order that one as well. However, the bagoong overpowered the saltiness of the dish. Bad batch, perhaps? The pork is tender, though. It also comes with eggplant. On the same day, I’ve learned that eggplants have no nutrients at all. It only provides water for the body. Thanks Melch and Jeck for this interesting trivia! Image

The ambience is close to perfect, because it has the feel of both a casual and a fine-dining restaurant rolled into one. The prices are great value for money as well; the three of us only paid a total of P700. The amount of food is also reasonable, although we felt that the rice serving could be improved. The staff is also friendly. We even took a photo with one of the staff since he has the same name as our friend, Derek. Lol.Image

Ambiance: 5/5
Price: 5/5
Serving: 4/5
Service: 5/5
Taste: 4/5

  1. I love the food at Mesa. 🙂 and wow awesome slanting glass! First time I’ve seen that. I often eat at their Greenbelt branch. 🙂 Glad to know they opened a new one 🙂

  2. This is the first time I heard of this restaurant. We seldom eat in Filipino restaurants because we feel that most food can be cooked at home. But might be nice to bring balikbayan friends here 🙂
