Sarap Pinoy sa Serye

After watching over my kid who was non-stop running around at the playground and riding a pedaled race cart with my kid sitting on a sidecar for 30 minutes at the Q.C. Circle on a Sunday noon....I thought I would get a heat stroke because the weather was too hot! I definitely needed a break so we decided to have lunch at Serye because I bought a voucher there for food and drinks worth P500. Another great buy because I only paid half the price. 

The place was quite packed since it was lunchtime but they still accommodated us and even accepted my voucher even if I did not make any reservation. We stayed in a cozy corner with a TV on top but it only showed advertisements so the kids did not really pay attention to it. 

Serye was owned by the famous Reyes family who is known for their barbeque so it is a must-have to order a BBQ dish. We ordered a 3-piece chicken barbeque dish which includes java rice, atsara and peanut sauce. It was worth around P280 but it can be shared by 2 to 3 people. We just ordered additional garlic rice which is actually a plain rice topped with garlic bits.  I prefer real sinangag garlic rice where you can see the garlic mixed in the rice. I highly recommend this dish because the chicken tastes good especially with the sauce.

We also ordered Bangus Belly Sinigang for the kids and it was a little spicy but I was glad the kids were able to eat it. It was served in a hot pot with a flame under it so the soup won't get cold...bright idea! This dish has a lot of ingredients in it unlike the Sinigang sa Hipon that we ordered at Barrio Fiesta where the few shrimps were swimming in a huge bowl of soup. I prefer a small bowl but has a lot of stuff in it.
We wanted to order Crispy Pata because there is  price in the menu indicating it per gram but the waiter told us we can't order a small portion and the minimum order is worth P500. Okay! so I think they should just put a fixed price of crispy pata there rather than making the customers believe that we can order a small portion of it. So we just decided to order pork sizzling sisig. I did not eat much of it because I got the largest piece of chicken so that was even hard for me to finish. My friends told me it was good though. 
And for dessert, my friend ordered blueberry cheesecake and 3 of us plus the 2 kids shared  it. It was the perfect ending to a nice Filipino meal. Really rich, sweet and overflowing with blueberry. Love it! My friend wanted to order hot choco and coffee but they were out of it so we just had the desert with water.
Everything was good but when we got the bill! Kablam, my friend paid an additional of  around P600 so I guess that would have been the service charge and tax. My advice for those using a voucher, never exceed the amount indicated in your voucher so as not to be charged additional. 
Here is the Serye Menu for those who might be interested in eating there.
