Two food adventurers’ passion for good food and great reliable service was manifested in this hole-in-the-wall conveniently located in Novaliches Quezon City. Instalog started out as a concept cooked up in a regular get together session of friends and is now capturing the hearts and palates of the people from all walks of life.
Inpired by a famous social app, Instalog serves their dishes on a square serving, a square mound of rice and a square fried sunny side up egg. They say that you eat with your eyes, and true enough the sight of every dish served by Instalog will mesmerize your mental picture.
Jefrey Baquiran, a former OFW tested his restaurant mettle to the test as he partners with Webmaster Richard Orlino; through trial and error, friends’ suggestions and recommendations, Instalog was conceived. They thought of a restaurant that would cater to all walks of life living up to the straightforward standards of giving quality affordable food served in a jiffy.
These are the 4M’s they so cleverly conjured up to make sure that their customers would have the best food and service experience whenever they visit Instalog.
Competition is harsh especially in Novaliches where some of the great food finds are. Instalog lives up to the challenge by making sure that their sumptuous food is served fast without jeopardizing the taste of their dishes. Their kitchen boasts of superior quality wares they sincerely invested in to make sure their ideals are met. The most impressive characteristic of Instalog is its affordable selection of great food from the delicious and creamy leche flan to lovely rice meals.
The tapa mami is loaded with chunks of beef tapa, perfectly cooked noodles, and savory broth. Instalog’s generous serving is more than enough for one person and for only Php50, this is an absolute bargain.
The Pancit Special has a special Thai twist – traditional Filipino ingredients with a zest of curry which makes this dish a must try. Oh wait, did I mention that this serving is for only Php50?!
The specialty of the house is a meal named after the restaurant – the Instalog. For your Php110, you get a garnished plate loaded with tapa, rice, lumpiang shanghai, tofu, and a sunny side up egg. The free soup is a special garlicky broth oozing with goodness. The lumpiang shanghai is very satisfactory with a load of meaty goodness wrapped in a thin crepe. The egg they serve is steamed so there is less oil – perfect for health conscious food lovers.
Instalog gets its supplies fresh from the market everyday through their trusted suppliers whom they hand picked to always make sure that their kitchen serves nothing but the best. Jefrey personally selected and trained the staff of this cozy restaurant with his international restaurant expertise.
If you are budget conscious and still would like to savor good quality food, the Instalog menu is a pleasing surprise. For Php59 you get a variety of Silog meals from Pork to Bangus paired with sinangag and itlog. For Php54, you get to choose from Corned beef, Hotdog, Longanisa, Tocino, or Ham in stylish Silog fashion.
Want to try most of their silog meals? The partners Jefrey and Richard already thought of that ahead, for Php120, the Instalog Instacombo meal treats you to four silog partners.
Order crispy tofu for only Php12 which comes with a great piquant soy dip and rice for Php12 or fried rice for Php15 and you have a meal for under Php30! And I have to admit that their tofu is delightfully delicious with a nice crisp! Don’t forget the free superb soup!
Their leche flan is so amazingly smooth and creamy that I had to order a take out. Its subtle sweetness makes it more emjoyable. Jefrey says that the recipe is a secret but hinted that he used nothing but the best quality products for every dish they cook in the kitchen.
Instalog is an instant success, thanks to the partner’s ingenuity in both marketing and strategy, people are lining up to have a taste of their astounding menu. Their peak hours is between 7pm and 2am – yes, they are open until the wee hours of the morning as long as there are guests clamoring to have their hunger filled.
