I ordered juice, a very refreshing Red Grape juice with Basil slush while checking their menu. There are a lot of dishes to choose from and our picks came from the suggestion of one of the owners - DJ Jose himself. 

We had three of their flavored rice, Tinapa Rice, Ninak Rice and Bagoong Rice. To experience best of Ninak order this instead of a regular plane rice.

Laksa is a Malay dish, I was surprised to have seen this served as I am a fan of Maggi Asam Laksa which is only available in some stores in Zamboanga. It made me happy that now I can have a bowl of this whenever I want to.

Lamb Massaman was just a viand of a million dollar. Definitely my top dish for the day this makes me crave for some white wine on the side.

Turon Halo-halo - Php 120.00


Yes! I guess you already have the idea of this dessert. Its turon - like the usual turon we can find anywhere in the Philippines its just that it was stuffed not only with strips of banana but with ube, beans and everything that usually found in a halo-halo. Two thumbs up for this simple yet experimental treat.

Ninak restaurant in brief overview, started in a stall in Alabang which unfortunately didn't succeeded, according to Dj, they had targeted the incorrect market and decided to close the store. Then after they had a Ninak take out booth, which surprisingly gain a good number of followers. Their followers inspired them to have this store open a couple of months ago.
