Mesa Filipino Moderne at SM Megamall

We went out last Sunday even if we already watched a movie the day before simply because we had nothing better to do. The little boy was also itching to play at Timezone. After using up his Php100 game card, we headed straight to Mesa Filipino Moderne to have an early dinner. I celebrated my birthday here two years ago, and we didn’t forget its cozy, relaxing ambiance and sumptuous foods.

We would have wanted to try their Drunken Ostrich, but according to the waiting staff, they weren’t serving ostrich dishes on that day because the price of ostrich meat has gone up. We settled for Pinatayong Manok and Binagoongang Baboy ni Kaka instead.


Pinatayong Manok, Php415.00

The chicken is literally standing, which is why it’s called “Pinatayong Manok.” It’s a “standing” crispy whole chicken carved right at your table. I liked the name and the taste, but I didn’t notice the crispiness. I also enjoyed the slightly sweet sauce that enhanced this already tasty dish.


Binagoongang Baboy ni Kaka, Php225.00

This is pan-fried pork belly sautéed in bagoong (shrimp paste) with grilled eggplant. This was delicious, too! Because it’s fried, there’s a crunch in every bite of pork meat, which made it fun to eat. The sweet and salty balance of the shrimp paste made this pork dish really palatable, too. I also enjoyed the veggies (grilled eggplant and fresh tomatoes, onions and chili peppers).

It was a satisfying dinner! I’ll never get tired of going back here because the place is nice, the waiting staff are courteous and friendly, and the food is delicious.

  1. your description of that Binagoongang Baboy ni Kaka just made me drool. lol. i can just imagine the crispy skin, coupled with the salty bagoong..omgosh. yummmm!!! I know i will consume lots of rice with that dish! 😀

    appreciate much your sharing and linking over at Food Friday, sis

  2. wow! so cute naman ang presentation ng ‘pinatayong manok’. Oks na sana buty you told you never noticed its crispiness. Nevertheless, I love to try it.

  3. The thing where they put the chicken, due to it’s menu’s name of pinatayong manok reminds me of the same exact thing where we put our bananas… looks good and definitely hopefully visit that place someday.

  4. First time I’ve heard of pinatayong manok. Only pinaupong manok was familiar to me till I came across this divine review. Looks like a glorious dining experience for you and your family.
