A trip to Maginhawa got us searching for a place to have dinner after work. With a number of restaurants opening around the Metro, it was nice to visit this humble neighborhood known for budget-friendly eats and hole-in-the-wall restaurants. If there is a Kapitolyo food street for the young professionals in Ortigas, Maginhawa caters more on the students around the UP campus. With that, food prices here are a lot cheaper, and your P500 could already go a long way.
Some restaurants on our list were fully booked so we decided to choose a less crowded destination and found ourselves in Katz Diner along Malingap Street, Sikatuna Village.
After browsing through their vast menu, we ordered for our favorite dishes: wings and ribs.
The wings were ok but they were really small in size.
Hickory BBQ American Ribs
The sauce was pretty good, the meat was tender, but it lacked the flavor we were looking for. I'd rather have my favorite Country Ribs from Banapple for this price.
This dish came in generous serving. The pasta was al dente and it was really tasty. Our only comment was that it was too oily! Seafood literally swimming in oil.
Our experience at Katz Diner wasn't so great but it wasn't so bad either. It's a nice place for home-cooked meals at budget-friendly prices. The place is nice and cozy perfect for those who just want a quiet place to dine.
