Presentation Rules All at Abuela's

The first thing that impressed me at Abuela's is the presentation of their food. Their servings are in long horizontal plates so you know right away they're good for 2 to 3 persons. If the prices on the menu turn you off, it's because they're good for sharing or for one hungry me.

 Abuela's Chicken Wings

First, we had Abuela's Chicken Wings. Due to all the red chili pepper all around it, I thought it was spicy. Good thing it wasn't! Not only is it very crunchy, it's also very tasty. I couldn't have asked for a better dish to start this dinner. Yummy!

 Bone Marrow w/ Truffled Chimichurri and Jam

I'm actually a fan of Bone Marrow due to how tasty it is due to all the fats. You can only imagine my reaction when I found out jam was also added to the mix. How delightful that was. It proves that you can make something really good if you mix the right ingredients and this dish is a good example of that.


One bite of Kilawin and you'll come to the conclusion that you're eating fresh seafood. That's because yes you are! It's freshly caught seafood of the day with coconut milk on top. It's great to eat this without the feeling of eating by the sea.


One of the newest items on the menu of Abuela's is Laswa. While the name won't delight you, I guarantee the taste will. It's a genuine mixture of seafood and vegetables so it's very healthy too.

 Bagnet w/ Thai Sauce 

Out of all the dishes served to us, the Bagnet w/ Thai Sauce was without a doubt my favorite. I kept on getting one after another as I forgot I had to share it with other people. Yep, it was that good. It was definitely cooked the way bagnet is supposed to be cooked and that's crunchy and yummy.

Mechado Stuffed w/ Iberico Chorizo

The beef in the Mechado is so tender that it melts in your mouth. The best part about this dish for me is the sauce. It's the type that you can mix it with rice alone. 

Pilia Ligat

I'm a big fan of Laing so I was pretty curious how this one tasted. This one has a generous mixture of fish and crab with coconut milk. I have to say it exceeded my expectations.

Jojo's Filipino Curry Prawns w/ Crab Fat Sauce

I don't know who Jojo is but I give his Curry Prawns two thumbs up. I loved the idea of putting crab fat sauce on top of it too. One bite of it and you'll quickly realize you're going to get addicted to it. I know I did.

Molten Lava Cake

Green Tea Cheesecake

Both desserts were pretty good! They both had the right amount of sweetness in them. I had one slice and they were both gone before I could have another. Needless to say, everyone saved enough room for dessert or it was that good. I'd say it was both!

When I come back to Makati (happens more often than I think), I'll definitely come back here. Good food, great ambiance, excellent service and of course magnificent presentation! What more could you ask for?
