As the name suggests, Dekada Historic Filipino Cuisine restaurant is decorated with vintage items and historical momentos every Filipino can relate to.
Dekada serves Filipino food with peculiar, patriotic names. It was fun browsing through whimsical names of Dekada viands like Ponce Chicken and Beef Pochero, Dominicano Adobo Rice, El Filibusterismo Crispy Tadyang, La Liga Filipina Short Ribs Caldereta, Hulbalahap Pinakbet, among many others
Here is what we ordered:
The Magtagumpay Family Platter (P 2,199 pesos) consists of Kare-Kare, Dilis Rice, Bangus ala Pobre, Crispy Pata, Inihaw na Manok, Garlic Sugpo plus steamed vegetables (okra and eggplant). Dekada brought the concept of the Philippine military boodle fight tradition to its restaurant. Food was served and spread on banana leaves.
And just like in the true spirit of a fight boodle, each one of us worked to dig in and get our fill from mounds of food! We enjoyed the hefty spread and had fun. The big servings of Magtagumpay Family Set are really made for sharing.
We had a taste of the distinctively Filipino boodle fight experience at Dekada!
For dessert, we had Halo-Halo and Palitaw.
Next came in Dekada's Palitaw, which was served with Muscovado sugar, sesame seeds and freshly grated coconut. The glutinuous rice cake was served warm. This relatively bland, chewy dessert gets it flavor from it into the grated coconut, excellent brown sugar mixture combined with fresh sesame seeds that have been toasted. The latter gives it a crunchy texture.
Your group dining experience will never be the same at Dekada Historic Filipino Cuisine. Very good value for money!
