So if your family is like mine, we like to get together in a restaurant with comfort food and a reasonable price. Luna J is one such find. They are located at Il Terrazo, Quezon City. Its not a big place but quaint enough to be comfortable. They have both indoor and outdoor dining areas.
It is a Filipino Gastropub so by that, they serve Filipino dishes and alcoholic drinks. They have from your standard beers to cocktails. The place is nice enough for a family get-together or a casual date.
Their menu is pretty simple but presents adequate choices. Most dishes are good for 2-3 people and the prices are fair. You’d find your group using the word ‘masarap’ when evaluating the dishes.
Ah, the Crispy Pata. A Filipino favorite. This is a dish that is well made by Luna J. Please ask for chopped onions and calamansi though to mix your own dipping sauce as they just served it with plain soy sauce by default. The pork knuckles are crunchy but not overly toasted. A recommended dish.
We ordered Palitao for desert. A traditional Filipino desert but again done well. Just chewy enough and sprinkled with generous amount of coconut, sugar, and cheese. Yes the cheese adds a new twist that goes well.
