A close friend told me that there is a new restaurant along Kalayaan Avenue in Quezon City that serves great grilled dishes for an affordable price, and has a comfortable ambiance called Qubiertos Grill & Restaurant
Yesterday, I decided to have lunch there with that same friend who suggested the place to me before I go to my work. It was very fortunate for us that the weather was kind of tame compared to the previous days that have passed by.
Qubiertos Grill & Restaurant
The place looked like a resort in Batangas because it was semi-opened and they also have "Kubo Style" for dining outside aside from the main restaurant.
Their food selection looked very sumptuous especially the "inihaw" section and the dessert choices. As for the prices, WOW!
they were very, very, friendly to one's budget. You can almost order one of each. One type of appetizer, inihaw, food with soup or sauce, and dessert. One order of rice costs 25 pesos but it's unlimited.
We ordered Inihaw na Liempo as our main dish. The friendly attendant told us that their Inihaw na Liempo is one of their top inihaw dish. Honestly, it doesn't have a different taste if you'll compare it to other Inihaw na Liempo but it is more lean and the sauce that comes with it was very delicious.
The sauce contained chopped onions and tomatoes. A piece of local chili (sili), soy sauce, and ginamos
(another type of bagoong that is watery).
Apart from Inihaw na Liempo, we ordered Baked Mussels (my all-time favorite when it comes to seafood) as our Appetizer. I liked the presentation. There were 11 pieces of them placed on top of rock salt served with a vegetable decor. But the most important part of this dish is the cheese. It was literally overloaded with melted, grated, cheese. I love the taste so much even if the garlic flavor was kind of weak.
I can't wait to try their other dishes especially the Lumot (their very own grilled stuffed squid) which was highly recommended by my friend. The place is very nice to dine with family and friends and the people here are very pleasant and so accommodating but I think during night time, it will convert to an "inuman" spot since they also offer videoke packages, and beer promos.
