Last Thursday, my mom and I went to Tomas Morato where she was scheduled to have her first facial ever. However, we thought we would get famished throughout the process, so we opted to go to Il Terrazzo first to get filled. The Luna J Filipino Gastropub is right at the entrance, so we decided to have a quick lunch there.
I had Tapsilog (P 140), which was properly flavored. The meat was a little chewy, but it was tolerable. On the other hand, my mom had Fried Chicken (P 150) with salted egg and tomatoes on the side along with sinigang soup. Unfortunately, the chicken is not totally cooked, because it still has blood when my mom shredded it, so she requested it to be cooked thoroughly. After that, it took a little while for the chicken to arrive.
The restaurant has a minimalist concept. Inside, the restaurant can accommodate 40 to 50 people and they also have seats outside. The pricing there is comparable to the pricing in Gerry’s Grill; I am just not quite sure if the serving size for both restos is the same. Some of the food attendants were polite, but I was wondering why one waiter was prohibited from taking our order. I mean, he cannot say no to a diner, if, for example, the diner is in a hurry, right? I don’t know, just my two cents. The taste of the dishes we had is just average. I might still visit the place again to try their other dishes, because I really haven’t tried the ones worth trying.
