I live for breakfast food. And I don’t mean any of that cereal and fruit nonsense. I’m Filipino and I like my weekend breakfasts big and hearty with copious amounts of sinangag. While most local joints offer all-day breakfast meals on their menu, I’ve always wanted a place dedicated solely to breakfast (that costs less and is nearer to me than IHOP or Heaven and Eggs).
I think it was on Election Day last May when Sanya and I first saw Ally’s along Malingap Street in Teacher’s Village (we were on our way to Uncle Moe’s and praying they would break the law and serve us beer) but we didn’t get to try the place until yesterday. It was late afternoon, I was starving and I wanted something salty and carb-y to reward myself for not getting drunk the previous night.
Off to Ally’s we went.
The place was only serving one table when we got there and I was a bit overwhelmed as I skimmed their menu. So many choices! I wanted to get a Lucban Longanisa silog meal but I saw they had frittatas and MY GOLLY, I LOVE FRITTATAS. We opted out of pancakes because Sanya’s inner fat girl was at church.
I apologize for the uninspiring photos, they are reflective of what I ate =/ Service was also slow; I think we waited half an hour for our orders to arrive and they were only serving three tables that afternoon!
Sanya ordered a Bacon and Egg Waffle Sandwich. She asked for her eggs to be over-easy, to which the kind ate replied with an “Ano po yun?”
“Ummmmmm,” Sanya looks at me, her hands making crumpling gestures in the air.
“Malasado?” I try.
“Malasado!” she exclaims.
“Okay po,” ate said.
The egg was not over-easy and the bacon was not crispy lol. Sanya gives her waffle sandwich 2 stars (out of 5). Please note that Sanya likes bad food.
I chose the Tinapa Frittata over the Cheesy Bacon Tomato one because I FRIKKEN LOVE TINAPA/TUYO/DRIED FISH/SARDINES (I automatically order Tinapa Pasta anywhere it’s offered).
I expected a frittata and got an omelet totally not worth the PHP130 I paid for!!! Mura lang naman ang itlog, noh! Had I also known it was going to be like that, I would have gotten a side order of breakfast rice instead of pesto bread (which was barely toasted buttered bread) or just ordered something completely different. Seriously, PHP130 for that omelet…
It was okay. I’ve made better frittatas and omelets. I give it 2 stars… for effort. I tried to keep DA HATERISMS AT BAY but I just hate it when food disappoints!!!
Will maybe eat at Ally’s again because the What Diet? just calls out to me.
Headed to Kopi Roti afterwards and proceeded to stuff ourselves with more food.
