Rekindle The Love for Filipino Food with Kusê
Living in an archipelago with 7,107 islands has its wonders. You have mountains, lakes, beaches and wonderful provinces. Different dialects, different looks and different food. In visiting provinces, eating local dishes is a must. It tells you a lot about their culture and character.
In the city, where everyone is busy working their way up to success, having a time to visit the provinces is next to impossible but those delectable dishes from the provinces won’t be missed. One can just simply visit Kusé and order their favorite.
The inside looks simple yet it make you feel like an illustrado. The woven wood chairs and the chandelier adds to that elite Filipino feeling once you enter, plus OPM music to compliment it. Pardon my photos as they were only taken using a smartphone, I accidentally left my camera’s battery.
For starters we were served a slice of Laguna with Paco Salad sa Laguna w/ Kesong Puti. I remembered the first time I ate fresh fern was when I had a vacation in Quezon province and had them freshly picked from the backyard but this is something different, it’s something new for me.
I would have order sago’t gulaman or ginumis if there was any but sadly no, so I settled for my second favorite pinoy drink, the calamansi juice. It was nothing extraordinary about the juice, just a slice of lemon to top it, but that’s the way it should be – calamansi juice.
