Uncle Cheffy's at Eastwood

Had dinner with Augie at Uncle Cheffy's at the New Eastwood Mall.
The restaurant prides itself for its  brick-oven and slow-cooked cuisine, Interiros were cozy and as in most restaurants at the second floor of the mall, it provided seating in the veranda area where you have a view of the mall park pedestrians below and the wide outdoor video screen. We decided to dine in the outdoor area and cool down with drinks.
Soda and Banana Shake
For starters, we had the Grilled Prawns and Pomelo Salad with Asian dressing..
It was a well-plated salad with well-cooked prawns, pinkish pomelos and crunchy fresh greens. The dressing used light soy and was subtle, allwing you to taste the freshness of the veggies. We ordered the small plate and it was good enough to share.

A. decided to get the Pork Ribs with Hawaiian rice which was good to be shared by 4 people! The meat was tender and slid right off the bone but most of the flavor was just on the outside. Thankfully, it came with a dip that saved the dish. I wonder though if the dip is made by the restaurant or just bought off supermarket shelves.

 I got the Garlic Studded Pork Belly Lechon which was served with liver sauce, tomato salsa and marble potatoes. The skin was crispy but the meat was just bland. if you dip it in either the sauce or the salsa, all you would get is the taste of the sauce and the salsa. I only had two bites and said goodbye to the dish.

We weren't very happy with dinner and decided to leave without having dessert. Maybe next time, if there is a next time, we'll just have their signature specialty- brick oven panizza.
