Mang Jose

Resto Name: Mang Jose
Location: beside Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, Cavite
Type:  Filipino
Average Price Per Dish: P100-P180

This is one of the newest inihaw resto which just opened last March 2017 beside Aguinaldo Shrine. Its an open ihaw-ihaw resto that looks very inviting and always packed with people at night.

Another night full of many diners.

Inihaw choices pork, fish, squid, chicken and eggplant

The menu

Some food items are not available 

What we ordered:

Orders are very fast that you only have to wait for 5 minutes and everything is already served. 

Free Soup

Expecting something like the typical medyas soup but its Nido Soup!

Sisig Nachos - P100

Since the menu says nachos, expecting nachos but what was served is thin cracker like huge version of chicharap of Chowking. Around 8-9 pieces topped with spicy three tablespoons sisig then drizzled with thousand island. Nothing fancy about this dish even if the sisig is yummy. Not worth re-ordering again. 

Inihaw na Pusit (small) - P200

Grilled squid is the only dish that ranges from P200-P500 depending on the size of your choice. Sulit for the price and the squid is soft. Problem is it's not that clean. Occasionally you will find small plastic of inside the squid in your mouth while munching it.    

Pork Tenderloin BBQ - P130

Tender and tasted is more on the sweet side but the smell is "papanis" na. It seems nakulob ng matagal bbq ng container thus the not so good smell but the sawsawan is yummy.

In all resto, numbers are removed from the table the moment all orders are completed, here they just leave it and only removes it when they clean the tables after the customers leaves.

There are two people manning the grilling station. Medyo naguluhan ako observing paano mag-ihaw si kuya since we were seated sa tapat niya. Paiba-iba style kahit puro manok ang toka sa kanya. Didn't order any chicken and I was curious if okay kaya dahil nasunog yung batch ng iniihaw niya but it was all served.   

In terms of service superb but in quality of food, it needs more improvement both in flavor and cooking method. Also since it is an open area chances are amoy usok ka after eating unless you will choose tables located inside.


Food – 2 stars
