Sumptuous Sundays: Wooden Spoon

Finally! A new Filipino restaurant in Powerplant Mall Rockwell! I love Filipino food to death as well as Powerplant Mall, and I feel like happy dancing because two of my favorite things in life can be found in one place. :)))

Wooden Spoon is by culinary expert, Sandy Daza, who by the way is a figure in the world of authentic Filipino cuisine.

PRICE RANGE: Appetizers start at P150.00+; Main Courses start at P230.00+; Desserts start at P

Check out their dishes after the break!

BEEF KARE-KARE- It's Kare-Kare, but meatier! I have to admit I was first weirded out by this dish as I have always known Kare-Kare as an Ox Tripe- based recipe, but dang, it was good and refreshing. It's like modern Kare-Kare that makes you less guilty because it's Protein (Beef chunks) and Fat (peanut sauce), whereas the traditional one is fatty through and through.

TOSTADONG ADOBO- Personalized adobo that's soooo yummy! I personally like that it's not drowning in sauce and the pork portions are crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside. I think I finished two cups of rice with this. :p

REYNA BLANCA- I firmly believe that this is Panacotta just like how Filipinos want it! Gelatinous, light, and brimming with Filipino flavor. I wasn't able to help myself that I ordered a second plate after chowing down this one!

Wooden Spoon, to me, is more of a personalized Filipino cuisine rather than modern or fusion and this is why I love it. I think I already said it before, but I'll say it again: Filipino food is rich and flavorful already on its own, and there's no need for any fancy rendition! Serving portions, for most dishes, are good for one only, but at least the prices are reasonable. Sorry, I wasn't able to feature more of their dishes as I don't order a lot especially if it's my first time to try a restaurant, but this I tell you: This restaurant is good, and I recommend that you try it!
