Are you a regular at Ineng’s Special BBQ in Wilcon City Center? If you are, then you would be happy to know that after months of renovation Ineng’s has finally opened it’s doors.
Gone is the quaint restaurant we all know as the place is sporting a modern look with glass windows and light fixtures. This set up made the restaurant look bigger and brighter perfect for everyone.
Though the look and feel is different, Ineng’s still offers their Special Pork BBQ and their Greatest Hits meal which is served with their special java rice, atchara and drink. Other Filipino dishes or “Ineng’s Lutong Bahay” which includes Bicol Express, Chopseuy, Bangus, Pancit, and Sizzling Tuna Sisig as well as classic merienda and “Sweets Ni Ineng” remain on the menu.
We had the opportunity to dine in during their soft opening week. Though you can see and feel that the staff is still learning, they were very courteous. They assisted us especially my grandmother (that’s a plus point).
Now for the food, we ordered some Special Pork BBQ, Sinigang and Bangus.
We truly enjoyed our meal; however, we encountered two problems.
One the service was slow. We understand that they just opened and the staff is still being trained BUT do not leave one waitress (kudos to her!) attending to all the customers. It was a Sunday evening and people do tend to dine out on that day so assign a bit more people on the dining area.
Second there’s no doubt that the Sinigang is a delicious medley of fresh veggies and tender cuts of meat in a light tamarind soup base. Sadly, it was way too sour making it difficult to enjoy the soup. If they could lessen the amount of tamarind, that would make the dish even perfect.
Will we return? Of course! Ineng’s Special BBQ just re-opened after months of renovation. We’ll be back in a few months to try some other dishes.
