ZUBUCHON: Express Review

Deciding on where to eat out on a Sunday night can be quite a challenge, especially if you’re dining out with a big group (kids included). Different preferences and tastes must be considered in choosing a restaurant that will seal the mood of everyone’s weekend. In our case, we agreed to dine in this Filipino restaurant in Makati, but got disappointed when our initial choice was apparently closed on Sundays. We did some googling and decided to try out Zubuchon in Makati. I was iffy at first thinking that it might be an elevated carinderia style restaurant. But much to my surprise, it was this swanky, well lit, modern space that is very much conducive for dining with a team.

It was raining cats and dogs when we got there, but I loved everything I saw and smelled when we walked in the restaurant. 🙂

IMG_0239[1]Hmm.. jam-packed on a Sunday night.

IMG_0178[1]IMG_0177[1]They have a pasalubong corner featuring Cebu’s famous delicacies.

We only waited for about 15mins to be seated, but I didn’t mind since we already got busy ordering. Here’s what we tried:

Sizzling Bangus♥♥♥♥

Crab Relleno- deep-fried, crab meat stuffed in crab shell♥♥♥♥

Original Lechon♥♥♥♥♥

Zubuchon Dinuguan = <3, you’ll need extra rice – it’s quite rich♥♥♥♥♥

Sizzling Spicy Zubuchorizo- kids love this!♥♥♥♥

Paksiw na Zubuchon♥♥♥

And Tartish Drink in a Jar – these sour drink are helpful to balance out the saltiness of the dishes♥♥♥♥

Oh sad, I didn’t get the chance to take photos of our other orders coz we lost our composure in hunger.

The things I like about this restaurant:

  1. Ample parking slots
  2. Efficient dining service
  3. Modern interiors
  4. Comfortable seating
  5. Comfortable air conditioning system
  6. The food selection
  7. No MSG
  8. Plus the fresh floral centerpiece didn’t go unnoticed ❤

What I didn’t dig so much is the price. But having a background in the food service industry I know very well that the overhead in running a restaurant can be quite steep so I’ll let that one slide 😉
