Rekado Restaurant: Makati's new kid on the block.

I love Makati City. I love how this place is constantly changing, with new bars and restaurants popping up regularly, including Rekado. Rekado is the new kid on the block located at the Ground Floor of The Columns Tower 2, just across from RCBC Plaza.

In English, ‘rekado’ means ingredients. Yes, the place is so Filipino and that is why I am starting to love this restaurant. Their menu is in Tagalog, but no worries, they have menu in English, as well. Their menu has a pretty wide selection. For vegetarians, like Donna, they have seafood and veggie options. Basically, there is a little something for everyone.

This is KKK (Php205.00). I love mussels, I love oysters, I love butter, and yes, I love this dish! Note that everything was for sharing. I’d say it’s good for 2-3 persons per serving.

Sizzling squid (Php265.00). This is love! This is squid on sizzling plate with mushrooms and vegetables in a yummy sauce. I love sizzling squid, and this was one of the best versions of this dish I've ever had. It was so flavorful. I would make Rekado a monthly habit just for this, which is definitely a must try.

Halaan Soup (Php150.00). This is a Filipino style soup made with clams cooked with garlic, ginger and onions. Every time I crave a simple seafood soup dish, I always go for this. 

Pinaputokan na Tilapia (Php240.00). It’s nothing special, but it’s still good enough. 

Space in the restaurant is a little tight, but the setting is elegant and well put together. Tables are closely positioned, but the space works. The food is good and it’s worth the price. The service is good, as well. If you’re in the area, you might want to check this place out.

I just want to add that I’ve been asked why I care so much about the service. People come in the restaurant for good food, but we also come to be pampered. Any great restaurant is about more than the food – it has to have great service too. I am actually more forgiving of mediocre food than slack service.
