Fely J's Kitchen.

My friends and I had our usual Christmas get-together last December, and since my friend S (who is based in Jakarta) was craving for some Filipino food, we decided to go to Fely J's Kitchen for dinner. It was a few days before Christmas and the restaurant was filled with people celebrating that night. We waited for almost an hour to be seated but it certainly was worth the wait.

Fely J's Kitchen is one of our favorite pinoy restaurants. We've been here many times before, mostly when one of our friends are home from their work stations (when Angela came home for a quick vacation from Afghanistan, for example). We just love their food.
Fely J’s Kitchen, a restaurant dedicated to the memory of Felicidad de Jesus-Cruz, mother of the late restaurateur Larry J. Cruz, features Fely J’s treasured recipes which she picked up in her travels. The restaurant offers a variety of Filipino and Asian dishes served Fely J’s style: fresh, natural and attractive, just as she was herself, a pretty, adventurous woman who grew old gracefully without artificial touches. {grabbed from their website}


Pancit Canton Guisado | Php295

This pancit was a surprise! I wasn't expecting much, truth be told, because this looks a bit pale for me. But the moment I tasted it, I changed my mind. This pancit was beautifully seasoned. The vegetables were crunchy and the shrimps, fresh.


Crispy Patang Bawang | Php575

Because our friend S was craving for some pork that night, we ordered Crispy Pata. Deep fried to perfection. What else can I say? Yum!


Ginataang Gulay at Hipon | Php245

The gata had the right amount of spice. And because I love anything with gata, this was, hands down, my favorite dish that night!


Tilapia with Sweet Plum Sauce | Php395

This one was truly delightful. Fresh and crunchy with a hint of sweetness. I could eat this entire fish alone!


Thai Shrimps and Pomelo | Php255

We didn't have this last Christmas (I think we had this when Angela was in town), but just including this here because this one is a must-try. Sour, sweet, and garlicky.


And that's me on the left with my globe-trotting friend Rissa on the right.
We were with friends, Edeena, Bi, S, and Chris. Fabulous evening.
