I don’t eat a lot of Filipino Food often but when I do, I make sure it’s worth it; And coming to the newly-improved Kabisera was an experience! Definitely a lot more fancier than the most Filipino restaurants but I can definitely say that the food is just as delicious as the ones cooked by our Mums or Grandmas at home.
Visited this place a couple weeks ago with some friends and we tried several ‘Kabisera favourites’ such as the Pork & Beef Sisig, Kare-Kare, Balbacua, and Bahay-Kubo plus a few new items on the menu like the Liempo Chips, Assorted Street Food , and Gambas Chorizo.
Honestly, you can’t go wrong with any of these dishes but I have to highlight the Balbacua, Liempo Chips, and Pork & Beef Sisig.
Kabisera‘s version of Balbacua Soup was one of the tastiest soups I’ve had in a loooong while. (Highly recommended!) Also, the Liempo Chips were fantastic! Add the slightly-spicy vinegar dip that goes with it, and you’re done and done. The Pork & Beef Sisig was seasoned perfectly–crispy and flavorful. I’ve always envisioned it to be more on the greasy side but this dish came out to be okay.
The assorted Street Food (Isaw, Kwek-Kwek, Fish Balls, Kikiam, Squid Balls) go hand in hand with the different local beers on draft and the Halo-Halo was quite refreshing and not too heavy–a perfect meal-ender.
Though a bit pricier for Filipino Food, you’re definitely paying for the amazing atmosphere/ambience, service, and the quality of the dishes is top-notch. The meal was overall delicious and I would love to return to try more.
