New Hole in the Wall Restaurant: H Cuisine (Tomas Morato)

Since it was a Sunday and I had work yesterday, Pat decided to pay me a visit at work since we were going to hear mass and dinner will follow suit afterwards. We decided to head out to mass and then maybe play some board games with his friends since we were all in constant communication with the group during the course of the night.

However, mass finished a little late and then came the heavy downpour of the rain so we just decided to reschedule our night out with our friends and just have a casual dinner somewhere near. After scouring Morato for another new find we decided to just eat at Rub Ribs. Although we ate there before we just consented on eating there again since we thought it was a good find and since both of us were already starving after the mass.

Beside Rub Ribs is H Cuisine with the sign board (Home of the Most Awesome Angus Beef Belly). This piqued our interest due to the word “Awesome” and “Angus” since Angus sounded imported and of good quality so we decided to give it a try. We purchased some drinks from Serenitea ( I had the Okinawa with some pearls and Pat had some Macha Green Tea).

H Cuisine is a homey, casual restaurant by Chef Hannah Herrera-Bagatsing. We asked their food servers on what the name “H” stands for and they told us that it’s actually the name of the proprietor Chef Hannah who had a husband and had kids.ย  Their food servers were mostly women who had their hair neatly tied in a bun and wrapped in a hairnet.

The place was not that quite spacious, there was a family who were strangely situated in the corner of the restaurant and it looked like they were cramped for space since people could barely move around the venue.ย  We started our dinner with the Pumpkin Soup. The serving wasย  good for two persons however it tasted a bit bland and quite lacking maybe in pepper or other condiments. It wasn’t really that full of flavor. It came with some long garlic bread too.

We then had the Most Awesome Angus Beef Belly – Slow-roasted, fork-tender with demi-glaced gravy which was good for sharing without rice. This Angus Beef Belly is really something worth blogging about. The beef was tender and had a slight charred finish. It also came in with some gravy which the server offered to pour into our viand. However, we refused and told her that we could help ourselves to it since we wanted to taste for ourselves how the meat goes without the gravy.

I first took a morsel from this so called “Best Seller” and they were right! ๐Ÿ™‚ The beef was very tender and soft perhaps due to the long cooking hours and slow heating of the beef. The gravy was also full of flavor and added some more flavor and oomph to the dish. Since we already helped ourselves to some milk teas from Serenitea we just had water for their drinks. We also ordered some buttered rice to accompany our order since I liked the idea of buttered rice as compared to garlic rice.ย  It also came with some buttered vegetables! ๐Ÿ˜€ (Too much butter in one meal?) Haha. I especially liked the peas, the carrots and the string beans which came along with it.

We actually made a video capturing our dinner experience at this new hole in the wall joint that we discovered. Were going to post it soon so better watch out for it on our Channel. We had so much fun making that food review in our video! ๐Ÿ˜€ I even had some goodie bags (Spoiler alert!) Were so excited to share it with you. Definitely a good find! ๐Ÿ˜€ Cheers to more new discoveries.
