Salad Starter PHP 82.00 or USD 1.89. Since the BFF is back in the city, we waste no time and do some serious catching up! I cannot stress enough that her meal is not a proper meal without her greens, so Batch settles for their Salad Starter.
For less than a hundred bucks, I say their salad's not bad at all! Each time we dine here, their greens are always fresh and the honey balsamic vinegar dressing fits the salad to a tee.
Chili Con Carne PHP 165.00 or USD 3.81. I love how generous they are with their servings! Batch was served a big platter of this, and knowing that she's a certified "takaw tingin" person I thought she'd finish only half. Boy, was I wrong! She polished every thing off her plate. Their Chili Con Carne is only moderately spicy, so if you want more action going on, just ask for a bottle of the ever reliable tabasco sauce to spice things up. :)
Beef Lasagna PHP 165.00 or USD 3.81. Unlike Batch, I can normally do without appetizers. I didn't really knew what I wanted to eat that time I just settled for their lasagna, since my office mates rave about it.
What's nice is that they serve it to you piping out, I know because I burnt my tongue with my first bite. Shhhh, don't tell! Overall it was good lasagna, although I find myself leaning towards other lasagnas drowning in cheese.
Serving time is not that ideal if you're on a tight lunch break but I definitely vouch for their quality service and impeccable quality of food. You pay a little more compared to a what should be cheap and affordable lunch but I think it's no big deal, specially if you favor quality. See you on my next pig out session. :)
