This year, someone predicted that the Filipino cuisine will be the next big thing. I'm really excited for this to happen as I honestly feel there's so much for the world to taste and to appreciate about our local dishes. Set aside the famous adobo, we got our laing, pinakbet, the really comforting sinigang, our wake-me-upper silogs and of course, all our pork dishes from crispy pata down to sisig. The Filipino cuisine will surely take the gastronomic world by storm, don't you think?
Having said that, I really miss Filipino food at the moment. Despite the many restaurants available, if you ask my Mom about her favorite Filipino restaurants, she will probably name 2-3 in a snap. One of these is Mesa Filipino Moderne. Ever since she dined here years ago, this has been her go-to place whenever someone in the family wants Filipino food or we have balikbayan relatives in town.
It was pretty much a no-brainer that Mommy would of course take her balikbayan daughter and son-in-law out for lunch to Mesa Filipino Moderne as well. No complains though and in fact, both Paul and I were very excited for this particular lunch as we can't wait to have our Pinoy favorites again.
It was indeed a very filling meal and we're so happy to be able to have our all-time favorites again. Till our next visit again at Mesa!
