That's when I recalled my ex-officemate who happens to be a friend of the co-owners of Chef Arch's Lime. He recommended this place to me back in 2010 since it's near my place. And I didn't know what I was missing for these past two years.
If you're into streetfood (but prepared in a classy way), 90's music, and wouldn't mind dining in an old house without air con, Chef Arch's Lime might just be your perfect neighborhood hangout.
Here's what we've tried so far:
|I'm not a fan of oysters but their Baked Oysters looks well-cooked, topped with a generous amount of cheese|
|Balut in Red Wine Sauce, a cringe-free way to eat balut|
|my personal favorite, the Street Style Pizza... a perfect combination of longganisa, itlog na maalat and kesong puti|
|just the same, I'm not a fan of white meat but the Chicken Breast stuffed with Kangkong and Kesong Puti was not bad at all|
|the Creamy Garlic Tuyo Pasta is an alternative for anchovies pasta though it was cooked in a white creamy sauce... eating this is like an acquired taste... might be too strong and fishy for some|
It was a good meal considering we only paid for Php2,400 which includes bottles of beer, Tanduay Ice, a glass of mojito and Tequila Rose and 2 glasses of bottomless iced teas! And yes, I got complimentary drinks from Ogie! A good way to end the night is the five deadly blah-blah... I can't even remember the name....
|Ogie told me it has tequila, baileys and 3 other liquors...|
Will definitely comeback!
