The risk taken: Grand Momma's Kitchen?

Chow time again and our hunger led us to Il Terrazzo at Tomas Morato. Before, we will only go there just for Banapple but last last week, we took the risk of trying something new, “Grandmomma’s Kitchen”.

One of the things that made us try this resto is that when we are just peeking on their menu placed on a stand right in front of the resto, the manager immediately accommodated us encouraging us to try their bestsellers and we could not say “No” to a hospitable manager and we were happy that the smile of the manager extends to the staff. (Service rating: 5/5)

The place is an estimated 20-seater resto with additional 4 seats for those dining alfresco. The interiors are true to its name because you felt like you are visiting your lola’s kitchen. They used old wood and painted it as it is which exudes a vintage look. The seats attached on the wall is furnished with cushion and pillows, so homey. The lighting is yellowy but not so bright, just enough to complement the old-fashioned vibe of the place. However, the pillows seems to be untidy or I don’t know if it’s really supposed to look antiquated. (Ambiance rating: 4/5)

We ordered the following:

Ol’ fashioned Pork Chop and Applesauce – the sauce is good but the pork chop is so bland. I wonder if they marinated it. Modesty aside, I can cook a much much much better pork chop. Disappointed.

Chicken Cordon Bleu – if you want a safe choice, choose this… you can never go wrong with chicken, ham and cheese all rolled into one, right? Yeah, I thought so. But this surely goes right in the bottom of my list when it comes to cordon bleu. While the other is bland, this is salty.

Smoked Baby back Ribs – I thought this could save the day but it didn’t. It was dry when it is supposed to be juicy. Triple disappointments.

Glad I was not traumatized to try something new. (LOL) As much as possible, I really don’t wanna rant about it but considering the price you have to pay for it, I am deeply frustrated. (Food rating: 1/5)

Considering the servings, which are relatively small, and the price, it sucks big time. Sorry for that! It’s a good thing they have a great manager but what is a great manager if the food failed to deliver. (Price and affordability ratinh: 2/5)

Anyhow, if you are with your family, any day can be a great one.

Disclaimer: I am only rating the resto based on the food we ordered. But FYI, we ordered the bestsellers. Just saying.

Peace out!!!
