First bite at Razon's by Glenn

Place: Bright and clean. It's just a little cramped and noisy because of the chatty staff. The dining chairs are amply comfortable and the tables are spacious and sturdy enough.

Food: Generally delicious, flavorful.

First on our table is the Glenn's Palabok (Php 85). The dish is tasty. It has a good mix of meat (from the chicharon) and fish (tinapa) flavors. Nothing is overpowering, just a right balance of flavors. Also, the noodles are not soggy and the dish doesn't have too much sauce. We just find it weird that iceberg lettuce is used to top the dish. But hey, it adds some texture and crunch.

Next is the Kare-Kare Rice Meal (Php 155). It has a cup of rice, a big bowl of kare-kare, and three pieces of lumpiang shanghai. The kare-kare is good enough. The sauce has a good thick consistency. The peanut butter taste is distinct. The vegetables are fresh and the beef chunks are tender, just a little bland.

The lumpiang shanghai pieces are not evenly fried. They are delicious though. They also have a distinct yet subtle Chinese chorizo taste.

Then, the place's pièce de résistance, the Halo-Halo (Php 85): caramelized banana, macapuno shreds, leche flan, milk, and crushed ice. Delicious! It is not too sweet and we can taste the individual flavors of the different components rather than just sugar or syrup.

Lastly, the Bibing-Mon (PHp 20), or the bibingka and mamon hybrid. It is soft, moist, and has a pronounced buttery flavor. Yummy!

Price: Considering taste, serving size, and quality, food here is reasonably priced.

Service: The waitresses are efficient and attentive. They're just a bit noisy.

Razon's by Glenn is at the Riverbanks Center, Marikina City.
