Filipino Restaurant Food Kuya J Restaurant Must Try Restaurant in the Philippines
October 02, 2015
Jerico Rosales for Kuya J Restaurant #IkawAngBida
There is no place like home. This is what I felt when I tasted the food in Kuya J Restaurant. All of the dishes reminded me that the world has so much else to offer but there is nothing like Filipino food. I had so much fun eating at Kuya J. The food was amazing and everything was just right. What I like most about them is they use the freshest ingredients and they don't try to alter something's flavor. And they did a good job in that factor. Their fried rice (humbinagoongan & danggit) were heavenly while the Kare-Kare contained the right amount of peanuts and its meat was very tender. From Lumpia Presko to Crispy Catfish.
I was just having the right amount of good time but when the Crispy Pata was served, fireworks and confetti was fired. I was so pumped to see the very handsome Jericho Rosales serving us a mouthwatering Crispy Pata.
Kuya J’s Crispy Pata
I'm not really sure if it's Jericho or the Crispy Pata that I was drooling over. Well, if they have one thing in common, it is that they are both my favorite! It was him which made my night even better than it already was but it was the Crispy Pata that made me forget my name. It was so crispy in the outside but the meat in the inside was so tender it feels like it melts right in your mouth. There is no enough adequate adjective to describe how sumptuous and glorious the crispy pata was. I recommend that you try it yourself and validate all the things I just said.
Perfectly deep-fried pork skin, with tender juicy pata meat. Crispy delicious. Specialty ni Kuya!
This is one of the restaurant’s specialties. Each shell is topped with butter and cheese and then grilled. My favorite! It was gone in 60 seconds in our table.
Pastry wrapped deep-fried jalapenos with Cebu chorizo and cheddar cheese. The best with garlic mayo dip.
Sauteed crabmeat and bamboo shoots filling rolled in malunggay infused wrapper with sweet garlic sauce. Ito ang favorite ng date ni Kuya.
Generous amounts of tender pork meat, shrimp, squid and squid balls na hinalo sa stir-fried egg noodles.
Pochero Bulalo Tagalog
Slow-cooked beef shank in a rich savory broth. May kasamang mais, saging na saba, camote at Baguio beans.
This dish is arguably considered the signature Filipino dish. Kuya J does a good job: The sauce is thick, sweet, and has a peanut buttery taste.
Battered deep-fried catfish seasoned with spices, served with chili tuba sauce and bagoong mayo.
Kuya’s version of a Filipino favorite, cooked ideally para ma-achieve ang tamang lamot ng gulay, kane at maliliit na hipon.
Sizzling Sisig with egg
The all-time Filipino favorite sizzling, crispy and crumbly chopped pork belly na hot na hot sa sarap.
Sinangag na dinagdagan ng danggit bits, oil, chives at fried danggit.
Humbinagoongan Rice Platter
Sinangag with bagoong alamang. Topped with pork humba meat, green mangoes, bell peppers and red onions.
Kuya J’s Fresh Fruit Shakes
Cool off with one of these delicious fresh fruit shakes, perfect drink if you want to cool up, quench your thirst and be refreshed.
Ang classic panghimagas. Creamy mango pandan. My Favorite!
Cebuano Mangga Cheesecake
Layers of muscovado graham crust, cream cheese and fresh mangoes to top it all off.
Ang original sweetheart ni Kuya! Leche Flan with classic caramel sauce.
Tablea flan w/ Coffee Syrup (P85)
Made with Batangas tablea and coffee caramel. A perfect dessert if you want something different but still Pinoy.
Visit Kuya J and go to food paradise the same way I did when I tasted their food.
I give it a two thumbs up for great food and the very good looking newest endorser, Jericho Rosales.
