I love the simple interiors as sturdy wooden tables are lined up with a long couch lining one side of the restaurant. More often than not, you’d have Chef Robert Tan himself greet you as he personally mans his own restaurant.
A short chat with him told us that his restaurant has been around for more than a year already. Surveying the crowd, it seems like has a steady stream of loyal customers mostly those living within the area.
Another indication that Chef Robert’s Lengua ala Pobre is truly spectacular is the fact that my husband, who has totally sworn off eating ox tongue after being terrified when he was a kid, enjoyed this dish and ended up finishing the last two slices.
I am excited to visit Chef Robert again and to try his other specialties such as the Lasagna, Seafood Rice Melt and his Korean Beef Stew. Definitely a great place to unwind and bond with your special someone.
