Kalye Juan

I've been in this resto for a number of times and there are good reasons why Kalye Juan sits in my family's list of dining preferences in MOA. The leading one perhaps is because it offers delightful Filipino Cuisine in very affordable prices. It does not boast of a long list of choices but as its menu states, it got Pagkaing Pinoy... Mga Paborito ni Juan dela Cruz (Filipino Foods... Typical Favorites of a distinctive Filipino). This is your kind of restaurant for all meal occasions. They have food offerings anytime of day. Tastewise, Kalye Juan delivers to what it calls for. Generally, the food taste like your conventional pinoy meals at home. There's nothing special to rave about but acceptable.

For a usual Pinoy meal, what could be more appetizing than green mango with bagoong (sauted shrimp paste) to start with? The Dulong (small fish) cooked in olive oil intrigued me because its in the saleable list so, I digged in. Apparently its another conventional yet gourmet dip that will perfectly match your cracker. The Kare-kare and Tokwa't Baboy are both tasty and served generously. Your money really goes a long way here.
And of course, we will not leave this place without indulging into its Sisig sa Kalye. The Sisig here is actually not something to shout out for but still is an appealing choice. Besides, what is a genuine, delectable Pinoy treat without it? More often than not we liked that Filipino dining table to sizzle hot.
