    Feeling somewhat down and hungry at the same time? Need a picker-upper to lift body and spirit? Then maybe, you should give La Magdalena Baker’s Restaurant a try. They just might have what you need. Positioned at the corner of Azcona and V. Gustilo Streets, this mid-sized property gives instant relief from city life as soon as you enter its air-conditioned confines. Choosing from a menu that lists familiar Filipino favorites and international dishes, we usually zero in on our preferred comfort food. The kids go for the bihon guisado and cheeseburger, the wife picks the batchoy (top-notch), while I order the sizzler plate. We then top it off with their bestselling halo-halo. Waiters are attentive, but need to fine-tune the way they serve the food and utensils. Restrooms out back are okay though some broken parts need replacement. Lack of parking space is another downside. Having a Wi-Fi connection is also appreciated by many. What better way to enjoy a comforting meal than doing so while chatting with family or friend in some faraway land? With muted traffic noise coming from the outside, this oasis of comfort within the city sure can bring up that energy level and swing moods in the right direction.

    Opening with a bang, Chef Nitoy’s Grille & Restaurant immediately captivated a lot of patrons with its good food and swift service in a relaxing courtyard setting. Many times did we enjoy the sizzling sisig, marlin and tuna while the kids favored the grilled chicken/liempo meals. Its ‘kansi’ was the tummy-warming order of choice before partaking of its signature ‘pancit canton’. The crispy ‘lumpia’ paired so well with the sub-zero beer. In short, it had all the makings of a preferred dining destination. But that was then. Fast forward to the recent and our two visits ended up being disappointments. Changes were made, but not with the desired result. Its once-open courtyard is now paved over – thus losing a natural aspect of the place. Moreover, a steel-trussed roof over it has caused a dampening effect on an otherwise bright portion. Just can’t help but feel that I’m in a basketball covered court. Additionally, the food quality has taken a dive while service has also followed the same route. Surprisingly, the ‘CR’s’ are still clean and functioning. Sayang naman. After all, it is in one of the better spots on the city’s famous food avenue and has solid fundamentals. Maybe professional make-over and management reform are needed to restore the luster of this once-rising star.
