On our first day, we were excited to have a quick lunch in Balinsasayaw Chicken Grill and Restaurant located at Manalo Extension. It's a pretty quiet area and a modest sized restaurant with a cluster of nipa huts in an open-air garden ambiance. Diners are surrounded by plants and trees.
Main dining area
They served Filipino recipes prepared with a home-style touch. I was craving for fish so we ordered a bowl of Sinigang na Tangigue (Php150.00). We had also Calamares (P120.00), 3 cup of rice (P10.00 per cup) and fruit shakes (P35.00).
We had already eaten about half of it before I took this picture
The Calamares was okay. But my craving for fish didn't satisfy me. There was something missing to make it memorable. Plus there were some flies and cats around us, one thing that can spoil a dining experience.
This restaurant is good for groups who are looking for a quieter place to have meal and chat. Prices are reasonable.
Oh and if you happen to stay one of their nipa huts, you have to use the hanging bell to call the attention of the waiter.
They also have another branch along Rizal Avenue.
