And, hence, we found ourselves in Nia’s Bamboo Cuisine, highly recommended by manang tindera (vendor) from whom we bought some native sweets beforehand.
Don’t expect Nia’s to be fancy, though. The façade is actually quite simple but I am impressed with the use of bamboo all throughout the establishment. Along with a native thatched roof, complete with plants and little pottery landscape touches; it gives off a very native, homey feel.
Order their Chicken Burger, one of the bestsellers, which sells for only Php65. My only gripe would be the type of bun used, but it is only my own personal opinion as I am not too fond of white bread, having been used to eating the wheat variety for so long.
We also tried their Tuna Sandwich (Php60) -- tasty but not that exceptional.
Their French Fries (Php90 for the regular size), on the other hand, was superb! A perfect side for their sandwiches. It was so good that we ordered another serving since one couldn’t satisfy us, which also explains the lousy picture I have below (sorry, was so engrossed on enjoying the fries, I forgot to take a picture when it first arrived at the table.)
For desert, why not try their Halo Halo (Php75). They never scrimp on the sahog, very generous plus it's topped with ube ice cream. Yum!
