Openrice "Eats a date" in Woodchuck House UP Diliman Quezon City.
When we entered this place the round bar in the corner welcomed us with this Mother Goose rhyme!
"How much wood could a woodchuck chuck
If a woodchuck could chuck wood?
As much wood as a woodchuck could chuck,
If a woodchuck could chuck wood".
This resto just opened 2 months ago, so napakabago palang. And they choose the "Wood Chuck House" because according to them during winter season woodchuck will dig deep just for them to find a comfy place and for them to relax, so that's it.
The place is under development, and when you see their counter is quite cute, with the small space when you order.
Outside you can see the space also and tables that you will able to enjoy the fresh air and their environment and I love the tree :)
Their specialty came from the Moms best constructed lutong bahay, the mommy of one of the owners of this resto. So when we say Lutong Bahay we should say that its common foods because we already taste it daily in our home. But in this resto I noticed and discovered twists in the recipes, but not all of the recipes hahaha, but for me I would love this 4 recipes that I have tried.
1. Pork Adobo with Mojos
This Adobo taste so good for me, not common and there is something special in the ingredients that they added on it. The pork was very well cooked and smells good.
2. Crispy Pork Sinigang (238.00)
This is my first time to try the sinigang with crispy pork. Because usually the pork we use in sinigang is the regular pork and just cook it. Their sinigang is not really sour, sakto lang because I hate subrang maasim na sinigang and this sinigang caught my taste.
3. Kareng-Kareng Baka (248.00)
This is also my first time to taste the Kareng-Kareng baka recipes because I always eat Chicken Curry hahah! But this one was so yummy and I love the butter. The taste was so good and I love it.
4. Mom's Best Bake Mac (158)
I love this Baked Macaroni it's cheesy and creamy. The pasta cooks good and I love it.
Also there are Do it yourself breakfast available here.
It's called "Do it yourself" because you can choose your meal and do it your self, yes! you can, like this Panini Bread, you can choose if you would grill or add eggs, add hotdogs, etc and make it yourself. Galing noh? Nakaka challenge din hehe. But they said na most of their costumers naman daw ayaw na sila gumawa for themselves so sila lang din ang gumagawa.
Here are some breakfast that we had tried,
Panini Do it yourself, this is a Foccaccia bread: Whole Wheat and Herbed Onion, you can add bacon, or egg, and you have an option to grill.
Hungarian Sausage, it looks great right? but for me it's salty and half-cooked.
Tapa- taste good also but nakukulangan ako sa lambot.
And also we had a chance to witness how they mixed their mocktails. And its amazing, I told myself na bago pala makarating sa baso ang mga inumin at dumaan muna sa mga procedures lol.
