Dencio’s Bar and Grill Dinner
After a good game of bowling, our group was hungry and was looking for a good place to eat. We landed at Dencio’s and browsed at the group meals section of their menu. We picked two good for four meals and waited for our orders. A few minutes later, the food arrived.
They have four choices for their good-for-four meals. We picked Menu 2 and Menu 4.
|Menu 1||Krispy Bangus Sisig, Pinakbet, Sinigang na Baboy, 2 Turon de Sorbetes, 4 Rice, Coke or Iced Tea||PHP 910|
|Menu 2||Sizzling Tiyan ng Bangus,Krispy Sisig, Chicken Wings Inasal, 2 Turon de Sorbetes, 4 Rice, Coke or Iced Tea||PHP 1015|
|Menu 3||4pcs Pork BBQ, Asparagus Garlic, Chicken Wings Inasal, 2 Turon de Sorbetes, 4 Rice, Coke or Iced Tea||PHP 995|
|Menu 4||Tortang Talong w/Crabmeat, Krispy Sisig, Bulalo, 2 Turon de Sorbetes, 4 Rice, Coke or Iced Tea||PHP 1025|
Sizzling Tiyan ng Bangus
Bangus Belly served in mushroom gravy. Nothing special on this one.
This would have saved our meal but it just made it worse. What’s with the hard and rubbery texture of the chicharon? It was prepared in front of us but it didn’t taste freshly prepared. They need to lessen or remove the chicharon on their sisig. I couldn’t remember tasting any pork on it.
Chicken Wings Inasal
This was false advertising. The picture in the menu clearly shows 4pcs per stick (2 chicken wing chopped into two) however we only got 2 pcs per stick. The taste was so-so.
Tortang Talong w/Crabmeat
Eggplant with egg and a few pieces of crab meat. Not a dish everyone wanted to eat so I ate most of it. I liked crabmeat so I was excited to eat this one although it was just so-so. I think they over fried it because some parts were already crunchy.
I liked this as a bulalo fan. The beef was tender and had a few chunks to share. However, the soup reminded me of bulalo flavored cup noodles (too strong). Since the bowl of soup wasn’t enough for all of us, we asked for a refill and we were served another bowl of just soup for an additional PHP21.
Turon de Sorbetes
Turon (banana lumpia) with a cinnamon glazing with vanilla ice cream. The turon wasn’t crunchy but the taste was ok. They should add another scoop of ice cream though.
Our dinner at Dencio’s was a disappointment. We paid around PHP2000 for food that had small servings and wasn’t enjoyable and delicious to eat. In fact, we spent more time complaining and making jokes than eating. If you plan to eat here, I suggest you avoid the group meals, reduce your ratio of viand to rice and don’t expect.
