Casa Marcos

Because good food is always worth the effort.

When it comes to trying out a newly opened restaurant or validating what a lot of people say is the best of this and that, I rarely have a hard time convincing CS for us to go and check it out. He is always open to suggestions and wouldn't take it against me if, well, we didn't liked the food or if the service sucks. Since he knows the North area better than I do, he was the one who suggested Casa Marcos for lunch before we drove for another hour to Antipolo.

From what I've read, Casa Marcos has been in operation since the 1940's until early 2000. But because of the popular Bread Bag Pandesal Bar owned by the family, patrons began convincing them to bring back one of the best Spanish restaurants to grace Manila.

On the table

Complimentary Pandesal

Lunch started off with a basket of freshly-baked and soft pandesal with butter on the side.

Caesar Salad - Php190.00

The greens were fresh and crunchy but a little overpriced for its size. I liked that the bacon was neither too salty nor too oily, I had to restrain myself from ordering extra to munch on.

Adobong Baboy Damo - Php395.00

CS decided to be a bit daring and went for Adobong Baboy Damo while I sticked to a long-time favorite of mine -- Kalderetang Baka. The adobo was quite a disappointment as the meat was hard to chew and the taste was nowhere near the adobo we are familiar with.

Contrastingly, my kaldereta was very delicious with its tender meat and rich sauce that made me ask for more pandesal to wipe off the bowl after finishing a cupful of rice. I really wont mind going back to Casa Marcos just for this!

Kalderetang Baka - Php375.00
