One of the newest restaurants to open near the La Salle high school (La Salle avenue) is Grill Guru. Martin and his dad decided to stop by for lunch one afternoon.
Grill Guru is a house converted into a restaurant. It has a nice pleasant lawn and a swimming pool that looks very inviting! The inside of the restaurant is the sala of the house and it offers a beautiful view of the pool which relaxes the diners.
Grill Guru has various grilled dishes on their menu. They also serve pasta and desserts. We decided to take the waiter’s recommendation and ordered a few of their specialties. We had the Calamares, Grilled Dory and Chicken Curry skewers.
The Calamares camwas the first to arrive and it was very good. The batter had spices mixed into it and it went well with the excellent spiced mayonnaise dip that came with the calamares.
Dory is a very bland fish but Grill Guru’s Dory was well marinated in a sweetish barbecue sauce that made it taste like a well barbecued piece of meat.
The chicken curry skewers were ordered by Martin Banana’s Dad. When asked for his opinion on how the chicken tasted all he said was: “It’s good, now shut up and eat your Dory.”
Grill Guru is a nice place to dine however the portion sizes are a bit small and prices range from being a bit pricy to fairly priced. (160 php for the Dory and 110 for the curry chicken skewers) . The place is new so we’re hoping in the future they enlarge the portion sizes a bit and not skimp on the rice. (Fried rice fluffed up looks like a sufficient amount in the photos but in reality it’s probably just half a cup of rice. See the dory picture.)
If you really want to impress your guests and visitors, take them to Grill Guru. The place is very pleasant and clean and the food is good!
