It’s hard to believe Kuya J’s Restaurant started out as a humble eatery along the streets of Cebu. Only because it has grown into such a well-known (and well-loved) brand that totals 18 branches and counting (they plan to open 50 more branches by the end of this year, if you can believe it). Well, I shouldn’t be surprised, because their food is absolutely delicious! I got to (finally) try Kuya J’s best-selling dishes this week, and I have to say, WOW! One dish was better than the next, and really, I couldn’t decide which dish I should eat first, which doesn’t happen to me often! So I piled on the yummy ulam on my plate (with rice, of course) and let the flavors take over. It was Filipino food at its finest, and I was truly in heaven from all the yummy-ness.
Oh and Jericho Rosales was there to serve us, which was fun (so many ladies were swooning over him, and the Crispy Pata he was serving). He is Kuya J’s Restaurant’s newest endorser, and he was truly excited to serve us because he is such a fan of the food (he was giving us his recommendations as he served us).
That Crispy Pata though! It was crunchy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside! Ahhhh, it was so tasty and delicious, I forgot I was on a diet. It had perfectly deep-fried pork skin, with tender juicy pata meat. Whyyyyy was this invented?! Haha, it was absolutely delicious!
But then, everything else we tried were so good too! Like the Grilled Scallops, Lumpia Presko, Kare-kare and Crispy Catfish (they were all winners to me, paired with bagoong rice and DANGGIT rice). Amazing food (it is torture for me to write about it because I am craving for all of these right now). Oh, and not to forget the Pork Belly Sisig, Pochero and Pansit! Sooooo good! If you still don’t believe me, scroll down and look at my photos below. Or take a drive over to the nearest Kuya J’s Restaurant to try it out for yourself. You wont regret it, I promise!
