Manam’s Sisig and Watemermelon Sinigang maybe the usual table staples but their Overloaded and Garlicky Chicken & Pork Belly is a standout dish worth devouring. Succulent, flavorful, and garlicky this adobo is on a level on it’s own! I suggest pairing this with their Ensaladang Namnam to create a flavorbomb for your tastebuds.

Abe’s Lamb Adobo

Have you tried Abe’s Lamb Adobo? Instead of the usual pork or chicken, chunks of lamb meat are long-braised until fork tender, which adds a distinct taste and overt richness to its adobo sauce making it a viand worth ordering whenever you dine at their restaurant. This unique adobo is certainly worth the extra rice.
