Sumptuous Sundays: Abé


Hello everybody! Just went on a hiatus this weekend because I had to do a bunch of family errands. Anyway, before you hit the sack, take a little time to know one of my favorite Filipino restaurants right at this side of Taguig, Abé at The Fort Serendra. Maybe you can include it in your TO VISIT RESTAURANTS list for this week!

PRICE RANGE: P100.00-P800.00

Abé is under the LJC group, a local restaurant company that specializes in Filipino fare. If you're familiar with Cafe Adriatico, (one of their first restaurants) yup, LJC also owns that.

Story wall featuring the life and legacy of Abé

Abé is a Kapampangan cuisine. They pride themselves on traditionally- prepared Kapampangan favorites using the freshest and finest ingredients, and secret cooking methods.

SUAM NA MAIS- Corn soup

If you love corn soup, you will delight in Abé's version because it is a semi- sweet broth generously filled with shredded corn.

PUSO NG SAGING- Known in English as "Banana Bud" or "Banana Blossom." I forgot the exact name of this dish so I'll just describe the way it's cooked: It seems boiled in vinegar or a sour kind of sauce and topped with fried garlic bits. It's very good with rice!

FRESH SISIG- One of the most satisfying sisig dishes in my opinion. In terms of taste, it's just like any other sisig renditions, (heck, once you eat sisig, it's like you've eaten all kinds of sisig already) but what makes Abé's version different is it's not stuffed with chopped onions, which is what most restaurants would use as a filler for the said dish.

BABY SQUID SAUTEED IN OLIVE OIL- Not it's actual name on the menu. (Ugh! Why am I so forgetful nowadays?!) Anyway, this one is just light and flavorful. It doesn't taste malangsa, and I appreciate the fact that the squid portions are small and bite- sized: Because I am petrified by bigger squid. Weird? I know.

Quite frankly, the quality of the food is not mind blowing, although good enough to gratify. I always go back here if I just want to eat tasty Filipino meals.

  8. I love lutong kapangpangan! I guess I've some of these platters here in Cebu, but its the Cabalen, an all-you-can-eat resto residing at SM City Cebu. Since I'm really into soups, i guess I'll be loving their corn soup! At first glance I thought it's a desert :) I love sisig too! Especially if topped with egg ♥

  11. I always passed by Abé and I have no idea that it is a Filipino Restaurant. I think I'm gonna love their Baby Squid dish. I super love squids and I like it when their bite-sized and the fact that it doesn't taste malangsa. I would wanna try their soup to. I'm looking forward for your next Sumptuous Sundays. :)
