I’m so very excited to share with you my latest food find. This resto has been around 7 years already & I don’t know why we haven’t discovered it until now! I’m so excited because it’s one place in Greenbelt 5 that you can take balikbayan relatives to -or visiting foreigner friends, simply because RESTAURANTE PIA Y DAMASO offers exotic meats on top of the classic Filipino dishes! I mean how many restaurants in Manila has that, right? Not a lot, let me tell you!
When foreign friends or relatives visit, they want us to take them places where they can absorb our culture. They ask for balut, halo-halo, puto, dinuguan. But I’m talking about rare meats here people. Those that aren’t usually served on our (or their) dining tables. I mean you gotta try everything at least once in your lifetime.
Restaurante Pia y Damaso
2/F Greenbelt 5, Legaspi Street, Legazpi Village, Makati (02) 729-5511
But for those of you who are looking for the more classic fares with some twists here & there, fret not, Restaurante Pia y Damaso is not all exotic. They do have regular food.. sort of. ;))
The moment you step inside Restaurante Pia Y Damaso, your food adventure begins. From the old world decor of the restaurant, to the names of the food on the menu, to the presentation & how it is served, to the way the food is cooked. Everything is themed. So I wouldn’t exactly call it “regular”.
I would strongly recommend that you try out Restaurante Pia Y Damaso. I have eaten at several Filipino restaurants but believe me when I say this takes Filipino cuisine to a whole new level. Go. Even if it’s just for the (oh-so-many) dessert selections. You are bound to love at least one, if not a few. <3 If you can read up on Noli Me Tangere before your visit, so much the better so you can identify with the names on the menu & know the epic story. ;)
