Book a table and get P500 off! 

In the last decade, the Philippines has become a stage for the international food scene. We’ve seen franchise after franchise drop anchor within our shores, and even got a few Michelin starred names in the net. Despite all of that, there’s just something about Filipino food that trumps them all.

Undoubtedly, we all have memories attached to home cooked adobo, tinola, liempo, and what have you. The argument of “Why eat at a Filipino restaurant when you can have that at home?” is no argument because it’s always a welcome experience to get a taste of what home is like for someone else.

From the outside, Limbaga 77 looks like an old house. You’re not wrong in thinking that because the restaurant is actually a 50 year old ancestral home.

You’ll find familiar remnants of what used to be the foyer, sala, and bedrooms that were converted into dining space and function rooms. But some of the architecture has remained intact —the grand staircase, wooden floor panels, and large window frames are unchanged and preserve the warm, cozy feel.

Limbaga 77 offers classic favorites like Crispy Pata, Poqui Poqui rolls, and Binusog na Pusit. It might be a good idea to bring the whole family because there are no single serve portions or individual meals here. Everything is how it is at home: family style with plenty of rice to go around.

Everyone is so busy nowadays and there’s hardly ever time for a meal at home. When you do manage to grab a bite, it’s always instant or store-bought, packaged “food”. Limbaga 77 cooks all of their dishes with love. Just take a look at their bestsellers, all shown here, and you’ll know what we’re talking about.

When you’re done with your meal, cap things off with a slice of Brazo Tablea Cake made with cocoa tablea and Barako coffee. For something more unique, try the Bikoron (biko + turon) served with peanut sauce and pair it with a cup of organic coffee from Benguet, Mt. Province and ask for a balikutsa to sweeten it up.
