What first comes to mind when the restaurant Congo Grille is mentioned? ——Guess! 🙂 Sirit? SISIG!!! Yep. It’s sisig! This restaurant is best known for their mouth-watering sisig, be it tuna, pork or chicken. It even won a sisig competition in an event before. I don’t particularly like sisig but I enjoyed theirs, now that’s a first. Hurrah! for Congo Grille for introducing to me the fun world of sisig. Haha!
Aside from sisig, Congo grille offers a lot of food too. They serve mostly Filipino food. This is one of my favorite restaurants because the food is pretty good and quite affordable too. (a must for someone thriving on school allowance Haha!) I’ve been here countless of times already, mostly during friends’ birthdays (told ‘ya it’s affordable :P) My latest visit was sometime before my graduation. I had dinner there with Sis Jam and brods Fred, Allan and Bryan, actually it was an unplanned one. Sis Jam and I were kidnapped! Haha! I like the interiors and ambiance of Congo grille. It has that wild jungle touch which makes diners feel adventurous. 😛 The waiters were dressed in jungle outfits. (hunters’ outfits of course but it wouldn’t hurt if they would sport a tarzan ensemble as long as they have tarzan’s body too! wishful thinking. haha) Nah… on second thought that would be a major distraction. Now back to the food, we started the meal with baked clams for our appetizer; it was a little bit dry but still ok. We ordered sinigang na baboy, kare-kare, cheesy monster burger and even had a free tuna sisig! (it was their promo for graduating students and I was supposedly one that time :D) The sinigang na baboy was delicious, it was tasty and had just the right amount of sourness. The kare-kare had that peanut buttery goodness and the tuna sisig was yummy as always. The cheesy monster burger was all mine to devour. haha! just kidding! It was good though a little bit dry because I asked for it well done.
The service was ok and the place was clean and comfortable. We had a good meal, we were satisfied, we had fun and most importantly we were full enough to take on a whole night of partying. haha!
