Being in close proximity to Antipolo, our family would often drive up the steep road that leads us to this pilgrimage city. One of the many things that we love about it, aside from its resorts, is the variety of places that would interest foodies like us. Our latest discovery is Tamerlane's Ihaws, a small carinderia that serves affordable grilled food.
My blogger-friends living nearby have been raving about the place for the longest time but they warned me not to expect too much. First of all, it's a garage converted into a small neighborhood restaurant. Dining is al fresco
. Well, that's not really a problem for me. My mom used to own one right in the very garage of our home.
Next, they say, is the lack of eating utensils. Everything is eaten kamayan
-style. No spoons nor forks; you'll have to eat your food with your bare hands. At least there's a faucet and a sink to wash your hands in. And I'm dining with the boys, anyway, so there's really no need to be picky and all.
We ordered chicken wings (Php 45)
, grilled liempo (Php 70)
, grilled squid (Php 170)
, and chicken barbecue Php 65)
. Aside from these, we had a plate of ensaladang mangga (mango salad with shrimp paste, Php 25)
, 5 cups of rice (Php 50)
, and 1.5 L Coke (Php 42)
. Total bill = Php 487
Tamerlane's Ihaws is located at Sumulong Extension, Antipolo City (near ICCT College). From Ortigas Extension, we turned right at L. Sumulong Memorial Circle and turned left at J. Sumulong St. (Sumulong Ext.) which is the street across Jollibee. Via commute, you can probably take a jeep that plies the Tanay/Teresa route and get off at Jollibee just two blocks away from the Ynares Center. Tamerlane's can be reached by foot from there or you can opt to take a tricycle to reach the place.
