Abominable affair at Mesa?

Restaurant: Mesa
Branch: 1st Level The Terraces Ayala Center Cebu
Food: Filipino
Type of Restaurant: Causal Dining
Mode of Payment: Cash/Credit Card

It's really a bummer when restaurants deliver lousy courtesy to hungry Pehhgz! It was past 9pm which was way over dinner time. We decided to dine at Mesa The Terraces Ayala Center Cebu. Kapig outs E, Ciege, Edd, Onyot, Greg, Kara , Homer and I entered the door and seated ourselves. There were barely any customers yet it took around 15-20 minutes for the waiter to give us the menu. I have to commend the interior design though for it's classy-homey Filipino touch.

We ordered Bagoong Rice, Baby Squid in Olive oil and Caramelized Garlic Pork.

Mesa Bagoong Rice
(priced at 135php, serves 2-3persons). Stir Fried Rice tossed with shrimp paste with shredded Green Mangoes. The rice goes well with the baby squid entree we ordered.

Mesa Baby Squid in olive oil
(priced at 220php, serves 1). Baby Squid sauteed in olive oil and seasoned with Garlic and laurel. The taste is superfluously good, too bad the serving size serves just 1 person.

Mesa Caramelized Garlic Pork (Priced at 190php serves 1-2). Pork belly slices tenderized in 5 spices, chili and garlic. Love this sweet spicy dish even though the serving size was kinda small.

And E ordered Mesa Cape Barako Jelly (Priced at 70php) which we shared with the group. It was very Filipino tasting and nostalgical. Coffee Jelly wasn't that barako though but it was enticing nonetheless!

KaPig Outs!
