Lunch at La Mesa Grill

La Mesa Grill

After the relaxing Ace Water Spa, we decided to have our lunch at TriNoma and at the same time, explore the mall. After we finished the free soup, we hailed a cab that would take us to TriNoma.

As we got there, we didn’t know where to eat, good thing there are a lot of restaurants to choose from on the nearest entrance where the cab dropped us off. Millet was the one who recommended where we would eat and we all agreed to eat at La Mesa Grill.

La Mesa Grille is located at 1st Floor TriNoma Mall North Triangle, EDSA Quezon City. They have a lot of other branches across Metro Manila.The TriNoma Branch is quite big and could accommodate a large number of people. The waiters and waitresses are courteous and attend to your every need. The place is dimly lit for a homey ambiance. They have different seating capacities that could be modified to fit the number of customers. Guests there belong to different age groups. Mostly, families dine in there. There are a few barkada groups like us there maybe because it was a Sunday.

We were seated on a table for six and our waitress gave us the menu. Their specialty are grilled dishes and they also serve other uniquely pinoy dishes. Their menu was quite similar with Mesa on Megamall, as I remember, they are sister restaurants that is why.

We ordered Sigarillas sa Gata as recommended by Millet, Tortang Sisig, and Sama-samang Inihaw Platter. We also tried their fresh buko juice and shakes for our drinks.

The Sigarillas sa Gata was yummy. Millet was right. I only had sigarillas a few times but its combination with coconut milk makes it more yummy. It is a recommended dish to try out if you visit this restaurant.

Tortang Sisig

The Tortang Sisg was new in their menu. The sisig was wrapped around a blanket of scrambled egg. It is a different way to enjoy a sisig dish. This one is also yummy but a bit oily. Their sisig tasted ordinary.

The Sama-samang Inihaw Platter is a combination of all the inihaw dishes they have. They have pork, beef and chicken barbecue, inihaw na liempo, tahong, shrimp, squid and clams. Everything was yummy especially the barbecues with their sauces. It was all filling and yummy.

After we have finished the dishes, we didn’t have room for dessert anymore. Three dishes was more than enough for the five of us. It was really a filling treat after the relaxing spa. We decided to walk around the mall so that it will not be heavy on the stomach. We decided to have dessert later when we don’t fill busog anymore. We enjoyed this day together with my girl-friends.
