Here’s an honest review of Balkan Yugoslavian Home Cooking in RCBC Plaza, Makati.
As I venture on different resto around Makati area, I’ve been passing by this restaurant 5 days a week and not have the urge to eat here. I don’t know why. Maybe because I don’t see a lot of people eating here everyday. And the total look of the restaurant doesn’t look appealing to me.
One day, my friend and I agreed to try this restaurant for a change. Ann got herself Pita Batak for php 119.00. And I got myself Cevapcici Meal pronounced as “chevachichi” for the same price served with sunnyside up egg, and garlic rice. Funny, that I can hardly read and pronounce the names of some of the dishes. I was smiling at the cashier and told him “why do you need to make things complicated in your menu? You can actually just place B1, B2, B3 to make it much easier to order. Lol!”. But of course, I was just kidding when I said it. But, it would really help customers order.😆
Surprisingly, the meat that looks like longanisa tasted good. It was made of beef and tasted even better when dipped in ketchup and mayonnaise. The meat is juicy and very tasty. Ann also liked the Pita Batak and will eat it again next time we dine there. The filling was also beef and since Ann don’t eat pork, it’s a place that sells meat dishes that she can eat. The serving was enough to make you full. Plus, the price is very affordable for an international cuisine. So, we will surely be back.
And now, I am looking forward to try out other dishes from Balkan. And see if I will be happy as much as I did with the Cevapcici Meal. I’m also looking forward to try their meal that looks like cordon bleu. I told you, I’m having a hard time pronouncing the dish so I’ll just base on how it looks. Hahaha!
The restaurant looks a bit dull and boring. Specially that it is located in betweeen two colorful restaurants. They can make a little revision on the design of the place to make it look a little attractive and inviting to customers.
Overall, I am happy with the food. And will be back for more. The price is very friendly and serving is okay.
I’d love to hear your experiences in this restaurant. Drop a comment or two! Thanks!😊
