My Birthday Celebration: Part 2 (Mesa Filipino Moderne)

My husband went on half-day leave on my birthday, January 31, to celebrate my birthday again. I say again because we already had an advance birthday celebration last Sunday, January 30 at Mr. Choi Kitchen at Robinsons Galleria.

I finished work early so we could go to SM Megamall to have dinner at Mesa Filipino Moderne. This restaurant offers Filipino cuisine with a twist.

To get inside, guests will have to pass through a tunnel made of bamboo, which is distinctly Filipino. The staff were courteous and accommodating, too. They were genuinely glad to take our pictures.

They also have nice interiors, cozy and elegant, and our four-year-old son did not fail to notice the soothing background music. He said he liked it there.

Because there were only four of us this time (hubby, me, Justin and his yaya), we ordered only three dishes: Baby Squid in Olive Oil, Tilapia Crispy Boneless and Laing in 2 Ways.

Baby Squid in Olive Oil, Php270.00

This is baby squid sautéed in olive oil and seasoned with garlic and laurel. Hubby loves anything squid, so he ordered this. I liked this, too, but not as much as I liked Tilapia Crispy Boneless and Laing in 2 Ways.

Tilapia Crispy Boneless, Php290.00

I like how this dish is presented. I also appreciate that the fish meat is cut into bite-sized pieces. This comes with four different sauces, too: the Special Sauce, Honey Bagooong, Sweet Chili, and Spicy Vinegar. The Spicy Vinegar sauce was our favorite. Our four-year-old loved this, too. This is actually all that he ate with his rice. He said it’s yummy with the Special Sauce!

Laing in 2 Ways, Php150.00

This dish is made from taro leaves, pork, shrimp paste and coconut cream topped with adobo flakes, served original and crispy. Hubby liked the original version, while I preferred the crispy version.

I had a little of everything with my spoonful of rice because they’re all so delicious. I couldn’t stop myself from commenting how good their food tastes. We will definitely come back here to try their other house specialties.
