Masas: a restaurant review

I had a meeting with one of our clients at 11AM. But since it was already so near lunchtime, we invited him for lunch instead. Pauline suggested Masas. I was pleased to learn that it was a restaurant specializing in Filipino cuisine because what popped first into my mind was to make this a feature in adobongblog.com! Sadly, I did not have my camera with me so I used my phone instead.

Masas is a restaurant located on the Ground floor of the restaurant row at Greenbelt 2 in Makati. The dining area has 2 floors, with the ground floor easily seating 25 pax. The waiters were very accommodating and always had a ready smile.

For our lunch, we chose nilasing na hipon, steamed tilapia, baked tahong, Bicol express, and grilled squid. We did not have to wait long for our orders to arrive.

All were yummy! The squid retained its tenderness even after it has cooled down. The Bicol express, which has a notorious reputation for spiciness, as just right. The shrimps were crunchy, and the tilapia was heavenly soft. It was a wonderful meal, with bottomless iced tea and lemonade on the side. Even the lemonade was a joy to sip, given that lemonade is either too sour or too sweet in other food shops.

Our meeting went rather nicely, and extended well after we've had our fill of brewed coffee and cappuccino. Between four of us, our bill was 1,500 pesos.

Masas comes highly recommend for its ambience, hospitality, and sumptous food!
