You can see the interiors of the restaurant even if you’re just outside, thanks to the full glass frontage. Simple yet cozy pieces of furniture gave us the homey feeling, giving you the notion of home-cooked meals.
The food came in right on time and we were bombed by the smell, savoury and inviting. These are some of their most reveled dishes:
This is Alab’s version of grilled chicken, there’s nothing plain to this since it is smothered with reduced coconut milk made tastier with a special Tausug spice, which has a hint of Lemongrass and Coriander.
I love prawn and this what I have been raving about since the time I ate at the restaurant. Grilled Tiger Prawn in palapa made tasty with Aligue and a Maranao spice mixed with a local shallot.
My husband favorite fish, Bangus, grilled with kamias, onion and tomato wrapped in banana leaves
Their Okoy, Crispy delight with shrimps and vegetable strips deep fried to perfection, served with a very flavorful vinegar dip.
Somewhat like Bicol’s Pinangat but this one is made with coconut threads covered in Gabi leaves with Coconut milk mixed with bagoong alamang poured on top.
There are some more lovely dishes which have not tried since my husband does not eat pork anymore, others have noted their Crispy Pata and Lechon belly.
They have Suman sa latik and Quezo de Bola Bibingka which both are calling my attention but we settled for Tsokonut Cake P110
This art piece caught my attention, very witty. Spoons and Forks stuck in a wooden piece.
Parking might be a problem though, since the place is always full and I mentioned earlier that they’re located in a narrow street. You have an option to park further since yoou would be needing the walk after your meal.
