GrandMomma's Kitchen at Il Terrazo

Various blog reviews such as this from the Pickiest Eater's Richie urged us to line up GrandMomma's Kitchen the next time we were in the area. When we finally had the chance, we passed by last April and tried it out. 

The homey ambiance gave us a warm welcome as we entered.

The place was rather small, and on that Friday evening, the lack of traffic in Il Terazzo didn't help in filling up the restaurant. 

As we started ordering, we were dismayed that two of the things we wanted weren't available: the Rib Eye Steak and the Grandmomma's Roast Beef, both of which are supposed best sellers. I don't get how these two high ticket items (priced P375 - P410) weren't available on a Friday night. 

A pet peeve: uniform containers for salt and pepper. You will have to look at the holes for shades, the darker one belonging to pepper. I'm used to having the pepper container have more holes than the salt's for easier way to differentiate.

To start, we shared a serving of the Caesar Salad. The quantity was scarce, and to have bacon on top, we'd need to add P60 more! We would have had a better salad experience over at KFC, at P20 lesser price.

So the one who wanted either the Roast Beef and Rib Eye Steak ended up settling for this Chicken Cordon Bleu. It was okay except for the slight hint of sourness I tasted. I'm not sure if it's rancidity or part of the flavours., though I've never tasted that in a Cordon Bleu before.

When this 'Ol Fashioned Pork Chop with Applesauce arrived, the server was trying to give this randomly to one of us. We asked what it was, and she just stared at us absentmindedly, giggling. We asked the third time and she still couldn't give us an answer, then she headed back to the counter to ask what the dish was. Turnoff number 2. I just commented "you must be new here" when she came back to try and save her from the shame.

I'm not sure if this is how they prepare it the "old fashioned way" but it was quite dry. Adding the applesauce was a good way to mask enhance this.

For my meal, I had the Smoked Baby Back Ribs. It was the most dry serving of ribs I've been served. 

The sauce couldn't save the heap of mess even if it had a gun to its head.

Short to say, the overall experience was a total disappointment.

Here's sharing their menu:
