KUYA J RESTAURANT: By Far The best Crispy Pata in Metro Manila

As a Kuya (older brother), I often accompany my younger sister to different food trips in the Metro. We love scouting for new places and restaurants. In one of our bonding time together, we stumbled upon Kuya J Restaurant just across BDO inside SM Pasig. 

It is proven time and again that eating out with your family members ensures closer ties with your family. So you better start doing it. 

One particular dish that caught our fancy is Kuya J's sizzling seafood.  We cleaned it up to the last drop of its sauce!

Kuya J's Sizzling Porkchop was cooked ala Bistek Tagalog. Hmmm...Malasa, malaman at masarsa! (tasty, meaty and saucy!)

We super love Kuya J's version of Tokwa't Baboy sa Suka (tofu and pork in vinegar)! Super yummy and super sulit (worth it)! Imagine the three of us shared this and it only costs us Php190. Imagine, a delicious meal minus the exorbitant price tag.

Kuya J's rack of ribs is sarap (delicious) to the bones! Look at its serving. It is good for up to 6 people for only Php395. No, I am not kidding. So go ahead and try it yourself.

We also love the Chili dinamita (dynamite).

Its version of Bihon Guisado (sauteed Chinese rice noodles) is so worth it because Kuya J did not scrimp on its ingredients.

For us, a meal is not complete without soup. So we ordered Sinigang na Baboy (pork stew).  Very delicious! 
It has a good presentation of its rice offerings. My favorite is its danggit (small thin salted dried fish known as rabbitfish or spinefoot) rice. It reminds me of Cebu where said fish is very popular.

Also a good catch is its unli-rice! Great value for money.

Pinoy food at Kuya J is not only good, it is also very affordable. Must try are their sisig and baked scallops. 

The tablea flan was good. My companions enjoyed it more. We will be back for their other offerings. Service was excellent!

The crispy pata was the favorite that it was instantaneously reduced to bits and pieces after it was served. 

I observed that Kuya J's staff are like a caring kuyas that takes care of you and your family when you dine in at their restaurant. They're very polite,fast and they always refill our glasses with water. Think about 5 star service. They operate methodically and you can see that they are trained very well.  

Kuya J restaurant has a wide variety of food choices. I was amazed how economical it is to dine in at Kuya J, they certainly provide great value for money. Each serving is good for 2 to 4 people.

Delicous fried Halo halo with ice cream capped our meal.
