If you’re from the south, then you’d know that the recent developments of SM Sucat is l – o – n – g overdue. The building is practically dying. People just go there to eat. I myself prefer not to go there except for errands and last minute dining issues.
Enough blabbering. For dinner, we ate at Mesa in the new wing of SM Sucat. There was a long line outside. This is beside Ramen Kuroda – both had long lines. (good for you, guys!)
For Appetizer, we had Tinapa Roll wrapped in Lettuce for Php 175
Diced smoked fish with tomato, onion and salted egg.
It’s not woahhh but this one is good. 🙂
Sisig in a pouch for Php 220
An appetizer that can be a viand. A bit salty for me but delicious nonetheless.
Baby Squid in Olive Oil for Php 375
Tender and flavorful, even if it’s only in olive oil. Gummy? Not.at.all.
Mesa Braised Beef for Php 385
Version of Rendang in coconut
They say Beef Rendang but for me it tastes like Kaldereta. A really, really, really good kaldereta. ❤ I love this. This is my Mom’s favorite. I guess mine too. 😀 The sauce is a viand on its own. ❤
Binagoongang Baboy ni Kaka for Php 295
Pan fried pork belly sauteed in shrimp paste with grilled eggplant
I’ve always loved a good Binagoongang Baboy and I must say, this is a Big Thumbs Up! It’s the perfect mix of meat and fat. This doesn’t look appetizing but wait til you have it in your mouth! I can finish this whole serving and I’ll be more than okay if we only ordered this one. ❤ not shared, of course. HAHA
Pinakbet with Bangus Belly for Php 225
Stewed vegetables in shrimp paste topped with milk fish belly
I’m not a fan of milk fish unless it’s fried. And I’d like a pinakbet with a lot more shrimp paste. This is okay, I’ll eat it but it’s not something I’ll order if I had the chance.
Overall, the Braised Beef and the Binagoongang Baboy is definitely a must try. ❤ Looking forward to eating here again. ❤
