Dining outside has become very common in our contemporary periods. An average Filipino may dine outside at least once a week, be it a fastfood or proper restaurant.
I am always in search of a good place to eat at. For me, dining should always be a pleasant experience for all of our five senses. Luckily, we chanced upon this newly opened restaurant in Congressional Avenue Extension called, REST O’ RAMA.
The restaurant was very pleasant to the eyes. The decorations were well coordinated and not too crowded in a way that complements each other. The chairs were of lovable powder baby colors.
The restaurant is mostly of wood designs and accents.
Walls were decorated with positive statement pieces.
They used kettles as lamp covers which is very creative.
During the time of our visit, there were a couple of tables filled but none of the guests were noisy at all. You may dine at peace here. It was a pleasant experience for the ears.
Upon sitting, the servers will immediately offer some warm soup and cold water to drink.
They offer lunch deals for only P98.
The Sibs and I tried the following:
Their nachos was served with cheese dip, salsa, and ground beef all in separate containers. It was crunchy, tangy, and tasty.
I had the Torikatsu out of their lunch menu which was normally priced at P140. It was a tender chicken breast covered in breading served with rice and slaw and a sweet sauce. I am not aware if there is a difference between their torikatsu from lunch and normal menu but the meal that I had was pretty good and filling enough.
The fish and chips was good as well. Fish was soft and properly cooked avoiding the ‘lansa’ taste and the chips were thin and crisp on point. I just didn’t like the tartar sauce that came along with it. It tasted like a cheap mayo with added garlic powder. Very minor flaw that can be altered though.
I am not the biggest fan of cream pastas but the sib said that this pasta was not bad at all. It was generously served with shrimp and parmesan cheese.
We had a pleasant experience in this restaurant. The staff were attentive and always ready to refill our water bottles. They regularly checked on us and asked if there is anything more they can serve us. Plus, the price range was really affordable and the serving size was appropriate.
It is always good discovering new places like this.
