Food Quest : Tiyo's Cuisine by Chef & Brewer (Marikina)


I just got home. It's 1:26 AM, five hours past my bed time and my brain's running full speed from the excitement of discovering another foodie's haven so I'm nowhere near getting a peaceful sleep. 

I'm on a food high!

A few hours earlier, me and my two reliable allies battled the headache-inducing Friday traffic to visit a restaurant that's gaining attention from the blogging community. Barely a year old, Tiyo's Cuisine by Chef & Brewer are for those who enjoy discovering and dining at places that offer comfort food in a homely setting. With a good mix of Filipino and Italian dishes on the menu that come in affordable prices (around 200-350 Pesos), you are assured to find a dish that will make you beam. 

We stayed here for almost four hours and if only they weren't closing, I would have lasted for a few more hours since they also offer unlimited brewed coffee for 1 Peso! (Insane deal!) :)  

Now, on with the shameless parade of food :

Sunset Salad - Lettuce, mango, orange, parmesan cheese (300 Pesos)
Good to share with two more friends to rev up the appetite. It's very refreshing!
I love the combination of fruits:P
We are all in agreement that this is amazing!
Basil Tomato Pasta (285 Pesos). Also, good for sharing, just order another dish! :P
For the tortilla wrap lovers - Rolettas (350 Pesos). These are oven-baked tortilla wraps filled with  either pork
or chicken and onions. It also comes with a strong mustard dip which I loved.
Ahhh,  Tiyo's Fried Chicken (375 Pesos). This one, I can consume all on my own. :p
The skin's very crispy  and the meat is quite tender.  I also love the achara that came with it. 
Here, chatter and good-natured laughter is heard all over the place. I guess it's the combination of friendly service and great food that induces the mouth to spew happy stories.
Indoor dining area. Outside sitting is also available. 
The place has already been spruced for the Christmas season. 
It was 12 midnight when we capped off our food adventure and though my friend pointed out that I look drunk despite the lack of alcohol consumption during dinner, it felt hard to leave a place that exuded a happy, relaxing vibe. I wanted to stay there and tell more stories. Oh well, there's always another time. Don't go Tiyo's, I'm in love with you! 

Curious and drooling? Head out to Tiyo's ASAP! :)
