gerry's grill

Not to be confused with Jerry's Grill at Club Street, Gerry hails from the Philippines. They have outlets all over the world, including USA and Qatar even.

sisik

Pork Sisig ($10.95)

This apparently is a latecomer in the food scene in Philippines and since then has been a staple at most restaurants, says the Filipino companion. He explained this as meat from the Pig's head whilst the restaurant identifies it as pork cheek. I found it a well flavoured hot plate of diced meat and onions, tasty yet oily.

grilled octopus

Grilled Squid ($14.95)
The squid was fresh and hovered over eet tasting due to the sauces.

satay

Grilled Pork ($9.95)

I call this the filipino version of satay. The stick of meat goes on for nearly forever and unlike the soft meat used in satay, these had a lot more bite, almost like pork collar.

braised chicken

Chicken Pork Adobo ($10.45)

A braised dish that was too salty.

garlic rice

Garlic Rice ($1.70)

I liked the balance of garlic in this dish.

rice noodle

Palabok ($7.45)

A rice noodle dish served with prawn paste, fried shallots and egg. It reminded me of mee siam in thicker consistency. Delicious actually despite the starchyness.

mix mix

Halo-Halo ($4.45)

Loosely translated as "mix-mix", it was supposed to be yam icecream on top of shaved ice and all the lovely things that go into a milkshake glass. Then, it ended up vanilla icecream with the ingredients of ice kachang.

The filipino kampung spirit was truly felt when there was a loud 'thud' and a birthday song broke out. The staff chorussed in their version of Happy Birthday. This is a casual joint largely patronised by filipinos with decent food, at least certified authentic by the filipino campanion.
