Kuya J is a casual dining restaurant that offers delicious Filipino food that is made with fresh and top-quality ingredients to make their signature dishes come out special every single time.
In the Philippines, most Filipino dishes have been under the mercy of other Asian food in majority of the malls and establishments, that’s why Filipino restaurants are a fresh sight to see.
These are 5 of the best foods to try in Kuya J.
5. Grilled Scallops
A smart choice to have as an appetizer and the way they made this is very good. The cheesy butter topping goes well with the scallops and it gives the dish a nice complexity – it’s not too strong as to overpower the taste of the scallops so you’ll taste a bit of sweetness in it. It’s a nice dish to have if you’re with your friends or family.
4. Crispy Catfish
If you like seafood like most Filipinos do, you’ll absolutely love this classic and very familiar approach. The catfish is served thin, crispy yet moist and delicious. It’s seasoned with spices, served with chilli tuba sauce and bagoong mayo. Great dish to have for lunch.
Of course, a Filipino meal won’t be complete without the signature Kare-kare. It is one of the best comfort food in the country and Kuya J’s dish is no different. They added peanut sauce in the dish so it can have a unique yet very familiar taste to it.
2. Mango Pandan
One of the most popular desserts in Filipino history with a little twist! If you’re a huge lover of Philippine mangoes then you’re in for a nice treat. You’ll be amazed with the refreshing taste that this dessert offers. Kuya J took advantage of the mangoes found locally because it’s one of the world’s famous fruit. A well-recommended dessert to order.
1. Crispy Pata
Filipinos love meat! They are very fond of roasting meat and accompanying it with gravy. Kuya J’s Crispy Pata has infinite layers of fats that you’ll love. It’s simple but perfect, extremely crispy but unhealthy – the dish itself makes Kuya J worth the visit.
