Kare Kare, Lechon Manok, and more local favorites have been added to 13 Ubay's menu
Weekend lunch idea with the family?
(SPOT.ph) In our hearts, nothing beats good ol' Filipino cuisine as our go-to comfort food. For days when you miss that home-cooked goodness, add 13 Ubay in Quezon City to your list of options as they've recently shaken up their menu with some local favorites.
13 Ubay started out by offering a range of Asian to Western dishes. This time, they shine the spotlight on Filipino food with their new menu items. The Binagoongan (P320), which has crisp pork belly, eggplants, and tomatoes swimming in a rich bagoong sauce. The Kaldereta (P390) is a family recipe, with large beef chunks cooked in a homemade sauce with potatoes and carrots. The Lechon Manok (P370) is salty and tangy, with chicken marinated in soy tamarind and served with house gravy. Another star of every Filipino family get-together is the Kare Kare (P500), and 13 Ubay's version keeps our favorite elements from this classic with ox tail and tripe, eggplant, string beans, and banana heart in a warm peanut sauce.
All of 13 Ubay's new menu items are recipes that have been passed down from the parents of Edna Sarmiento, who runs the restaurant with her daughter Zaza. They're served in generous portions that will remind you of family reunions in your grandparents' or parents' home.
13 Ubay is at 13 Ubay Street, Sta. Mesa Heights, Banawe, Quezon City.
