Uno has always been the place for our family. regular days, special occassions, we're there. we've been eating there for more than 10 years now, and the staff have always been welcoming and their chef is the best. the food changes quarterly, and you can even request for your dishes to be split so that you can share the best of what your group ordered. we always opt for their everyday specials, for we wanted to taste something new everytime, and they never failed us. try their fish dishes, you'll fall in love right away. i particularly love their chicken ala funghi (never forgot it though it was served to me 4 years ago). their pumpkin soup is simply the best. i just wish they make it a regular dish in their menu. heehee. the place is cozy, perfect for friends/family dinners.
*(the rest room is not unisex ah.)
food and people are great, the only problem i have is that the oarking is too small and the place is situated in a very crowded place. but for the food, it is phenomenal
Carrot and Chili Bisque PHP 170
We requested the soup to be split into two and the courteous wait staff readily agreed. It was our first time to try carrot soup and like carrot juice, it pretty much didn’t convert me into a fan. What I appreciate is how the chili spikes the bisque good enough to make the carrot flavor livid.
Barbecued Lemon Grass Chicken with Calamansi Sesame Dressing PHP 340
There were a few interesting dishes on the menu I was intrigued to try. Bubba thought I was being moderate by trying the barbecued lemon grass chicken. I had to point out to him the word Calamansi to make him a believer. Anything calamansi has my name on it. I love calamansi, lemon, green mangoes and other sour victuals. I put Calamansi in almost anything I eat… siomai, siopao, popcorn, fish cracker, etc which makes Bubba give me the weird eye. The Barbecued Chicken didn’t have much skin on it (which is great if you’re watching the calories) and the white meat was cooked perfectly with just enough juice to prevent the meat from being rubbery. I wish I asked for more Calamansi Sesame dressing as it made me enjoy this wonderful subtle dish.
Lamb Shank Braised in Balsamic and Fresh Turmeric ADOBO Sauce PHP 480
Lamb shank is one of the more favorite cuts of lamb. Uno’s version that incorporates the Filipino favorite Adobo in the sauce was brilliantly done well. The tender flesh of meat melts in your mouth with the deep taste of Balsamic infused Adobo sauce.
This is my favorite restaurant of all-time. Winner for their unlimited bread and butter, iced tea and rice. You can even request for garlic rice. This place has personalized service and serve simple yet tasty meals. Menu is very basic so you don't have a hard time guessing. The price is just right and most likely will spend 400 per person. The place is a nice hidden secret and the service is very personal. I consider this place my comfort food zone. When there is nothing new to try or nothing comes to mind, I always end up at UNO.
I liked the salad and cake, but the unisex CR was a letdown for me.
