We were going around in circles looking for a restaurant in Greenbelt 3 because there are just so many to choose from. In the end, we settled on Recipes, which is not our usual choice, this is because we’re not really a big fan of restaurants that serves Filipino food (we usually eat Filipino food at home :-s) . Regardless, the place looked clean and homey which was a good break from the other fancy-looking restaurants nearby.
Crispy Tilapia Php 210.00
Not really my choice but I was overruled by my wife so we ended up ordering it, usually other restaurants call this dish “Binukadkad na Tilapia”. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it was, people who have no qualms about fish would probably like this dish. The presentation looks flashy though, like someone put a small bomb on the stomach of the fishand let it explode.
General’s Chicken Php 210.00
A Filipino version of the sweet and spicy Chinese dish, minus the spicy taste. It tastes really good, the slight crunchiness of the chicken makes this dish very tasty. This is also served with slices of eggplant. Our only complaint about this dish is that it is served in a small quantity relative to its price.
Our dining experience in Recipies was pleasant, the service was ok but we had to wait a bit for the food to arrive. Also, the general serving size of the food is small, good enough for 1 person, so you might want to take that into consideration when dining there with friends and family.
