Chef Laudico Guevarra’s

My dining experience at Bistro Filipino by Chef Laudico at Bonifacio Global City months ago was gratifying so I was really looking forward to try their Filipino buffet restaurant, Chef Laudico Guevarra’s.

Since it is our first time to go at Guevarra's last October 3, we find it difficult to locate the place--387 P. Guevarra St. cor. Argonne St., Addition Hills, San Juan. After asking for directions, we finally arrived at a white-painted ancestral house. The lighting and the garden gives it an old romantic charm.
It was hard to get a nice shot from the outside since it was raining that night.

Here are the dishes (from what I can remember):

An assortment of starters/appetizers-- radish cucumber salad, macaroni salad, steamed vegetables, longganisa, squid, lumpiang ubod, angus beef, grilled chicken, liempo, chicken skin, camote croquettes, fried danggit, calamares, seafood pizza, karnevorous pizza and vegetarian pizza.

Interesting main dishes like--fish escabeche dory, seafood ala pobre, chilli garlic alimasag, halabos na hipon, fried chicken adobo, chicken pastel, beef kaldereta and dinuguan.

They also have seafood tinola and roast angus beef.

And what a better way to cap the night--with sweets! From suman balls, maja blanca, leche flan, tablea and ice cream. Included in the buffet are the softdrinks and iced tea.
an ice-cream vendo machine!

Here’s what I had:

-          - I liked the macaroni salad even if it is sweeter than the usual macaroni salads.
-          - Black paella is good though they need to add more ingredients (It only has a small quantity of squid and egg!)
-          - The pizzas are unflavorful, cold and dry.
-          - I was expecting a different fried chicken adobo but it turned out to be fried chicken cooked in sauce that doesn’t taste like adobo at all.
-          - Chicken pastel, beef kaledereta and pinakbet bagnet were all good!
-          - Leche flan and maja blanca are both deliciously creamy.
-          - I wonder why their chocolate ice cream tastes like coffee. Ube ice cream is delicious but is sort of “watery”.

With such an ambiance, good service and extensive menu, I can say that Guevarra’s price is “affordable.”  Although with regards to taste and quality of food, Bistro Filipino is much better (in my opinion).
