Slice N’ Dice -P.Tuazon, Q.C.

I felt excited when I heard that there’s a newly opened Slice N’ Dice branch near my place. I’ve been wanting to eat steak and I was wishing this one would satisfy my craving. Slice N’ Dice (formerly In and Out) is the place to be if you want cheap steaks.

The huge signs outside show 99 pesos steaks. Seems catchy…indeed! Their menu consists of breakfast, snacks, ice cream cakes for dessert, and of course steaks. I ordered T-bone for 99 pesos; plus I also added plain rice (21 pesos) and soda (33 pesos).

The beef was relatively thin and topped with gravy.  I added hot sauce and worcestershire sauce for more flavor. I wished the steak was bigger because I chowed this one down in less than 10 minutes.

Honestly, It might take time before I go back to this place (this branch); There’s just so many things for them to work on…they have to train their crew to assist and be courteous to customers. It was very hot inside and people were already complaining but the waiter didn’t turn on the AC. Also, when we were about to leave the place, NO “thank you”…nothing was heard from them. Were they very busy? (Note: the owner was even there inside the store..tsk tsk tsk). To the management: take time to train your people, it will surely help your business.

Savory- Cubao, Quezon City

My hunger hit me again…BIG TIME! It seemed exaggerated but…honestly, fasting for a day because I had to go for a medical check-up left my stomach rumbling. My mom and I headed to Cubao for lunch that day.

I let my mom decide where to eat and she was torn between Taco Bell or Savory.  She was undecided…I couldn’t stand my hunger anymore. I told her I wanted something heavy, I wanted to eat rice to fill up my hungry tummy.

Upon entering the resto, I noticed that the place was empty. Well, it was 4pm…too late for lunch and too early for dinner.

 We ordered set meals and their lomi soup (one of Savory’s specialties).

Mama couldn’t wait… check the noodle slipping into her bowl.

The lomi soup was served hotttt… the serving was generous, more than enough for 2 people sharing. I really couldn’t remember everything in it, I know there’s beef, squid, liver, some veggies, and probably squid balls… IT WAS REALLY DELICIOUS! Perfect for that rainy afternoon.

Mama had 1/4 chicken and fish in creamy sauce. The meal also had 1 huge cup of rice, turon for dessert, and a glass of juice (i think it’s passion fruit).

Savory’s signature chicken was great! It was cooked in perfection. The 15 minutes of waiting for this dish was not disappointing. The chicken skin was crispy, not soft/soggy…and the meat was tender and juicy. The unique taste of the gravy matched the chicken absolutely.

The fish was tender and the creamy sauce accentuated its flavor. I didn’t expect this plain dish would taste good.

I ordered almost the same thing except for the fish…I had pork spareribs instead and it turned out not to be a very good choice. There were only 3 small pieces of the spareribs on my plate. It had more bell peppers than meat.  =(  The spareribs was a bit tough. Also, the vinegar served with it tasted awkward with the marinade used for the meat.

Generally, my experience with Savory was good. The people were friendly, the service was fast enough, the food was good except for the spareribs. We just paid 500 +…thanks to mama’s senior citizen’s card which gave us 20% discount.

Simple and classic……..it’s SAVORY.
