The Best Chicken & Pizza in Town

          A week ago, I was searching for an Italian restaurant in Eastwood, Libis, Quezon City-- it was actually my second day in the area when I discovered Red Buffalo Wings and Pizza. I  am a certified pizza and pasta lover that's why I always crave for pizza.  A small and cozy restaurant was inviting us to come in, but we were hesitant at first.   Before we finally decide to enter, Hubby and I checked the prices on the glass wall.  Hubby decided to order the original hot buffalo wings (single -5 pieces) and Royal soda in can (P165) -- he just chose the original though there is still the X-hot and Suicidal.  I settled for the three-cheese garlic pizza and iced tea (P295).



 

             We went to the second floor since the main floor was already full, yet we despised the long waiting time. .  There were vacant tables, but in just a span of minutes, they were all filled with people.  It took us eternity before we had our lunch. That time, I was in a rush since I had a bank transaction. Later on, we have figured out why it took them so long to serve the food-- they had limited number of service crew-- only two to be exact--the chef and the cashier. We just about burst into laughing when it was the cashier who served the food to us. They need to hire more individuals so they would have the capacity to serve their customers faster.




 



           

         When my pizza was served, I forgot about the time. I love its garlicky and cheesy taste that I totally forgot also that I'm on a diet.  Hubby's original hot buffalo wings was truly fabulous--tender, vinegary, yet succulent.  I wonder how spicy it was if we have tried the X-hot or Suicidal buffalo wings (I will definetely try it next time!)  


        The restaurant is certainly a hit to people from all ages and class.  People go there not only to dine, but to bond or conduct meetings as well.  




           

         Though I don't have any complain about the food, there are  minimal issues that they have to resolve.  

1.  Pizza is best served with hot sauce. (During my visit, they didn't have any stock).  They have a condiment station where the disposable gloves and other condiments are placed; however, they need to ensure that there are sufficient stocks/supplies for the customers.


2.  They need to hire additional crew to ensure quality and efficient service.

3.  The restroom should be available to the customers. 

 

            Will I still recommend Red Buffalo Wings and Pizza? For the divine pizza that I have tasted--a BIG YES.  I will definitely go back and try their X-hot or Suicidal Buffalo Wings and other dishes as well.


A Showcase of Philippine Cuisine in Eastwood

         Have you tried to explore Eastwood City in Libis, Quezon City?  Let me share about my dining experience in MESA Filipino Moderne yesterday.  After getting exhausted because of our loooong walk and hours of waiting, we searched for an affordable restaurant for our late lunch. We hopped from one building to another until we ended in Eastwood Mall. I was actually looking for an Italian restaurant for pizza, but because of stress and hunger, all I wanted to do is to satisfy my stomach.  Finally, we stopped by and I was relaxed with the breezy and homey atmosphere--- it's as if the place was inviting me to check it out. I fell in love with the restaurant's exceptional interior design and elegant furnishings.  I said, "Wait, let us ask for the menu."




                  The prices are very affordable.  I had Chicken BBQ Honey Patis (P165)  and a glass of pineapple juice (P65) while hubby had Grid Liempo (195) and Bottomless Lemonade (P70).  Rice is not included so we paid P40 per order. The total amount that we settled is just P575-- not bad at all.









             
             While we were waiting, the waiter handed us a glass of water.  We were fascinated like a child, examining the shape of the glass carefully.  It can be compared to the "Leaning Tower of Pisa."  In terms of service, I can say that it was close to perfection.  The waiters and waitresses were courteous and very efficient.  We didn't wait too long for the food to be served.


                          


                               Drinks were served first-- I was quenched and delighted with my pineapple juice.  It was made out of real pineapple (I can tell if it is just concentrated juice).  Most of the hotels serve concentrated pineapple juice in their free breakfast.  Contrary to my satisfaction though, hubby was not contented with his bottomless lemonade.  I have tasted it and he was right-- the lemonade was not made out of real lemon, but the concentrated one.  We just thought that probably it's because it's bottomless, that's why they just settled with that kind. 





                      The chicken bbq was palatable, though the presentation looked appetizing.  I was expecting for the juicy taste, but it was insipid.  




                        Hubby had the same experience-- his liempo was also dull.  I don't have an idea if it goes also for the rest of the food in the menu, or it just happened that it didn't suit our taste and preferences.  


                        Overall, I couldn't say that it was a terrible experience, but not satisfying either.  The welcoming atmosphere is their advantage and it is indeed a wonderful experience to find out that there are still restaurants like Mesa that showcase Filipino dishes.  They offer variety of food appetizers, meat, soup, salad, seafood, vegetables and noodles.  

Note:  This review was based from the food that we have ordered.  It doesn't apply for the other dishes in their menu.
