Lunch at Ka-Inato's

First day in the city (Wednesday, April 25th). Had to go to Palawan State University to pay for my daughter's entrance exam for 1st grade and submit the forms to the Guidance Office.

We picked up Marnie at the office, for it's almost lunch time break. We headed to Ka-Inato, Rizal Avenue. I learned that this restaurant is partly owned now by Ka Lui's owner, hence the "Ka" in its name.

Took us some time to decide on what to eat. 

This faucet really caught my attention.
A closer look of the naughty faucet.

Fresh Mango Shake for Marnie. As always, his all time favorite of all shakes!

Fresh Guyabano shake for me and Mikyla. 

Hail on these fresh fruit shakes! Costs Php75 each! 
Taste: 10/10 of course!

We all had the Original Chix Inato. This costs Php95.00
The best tasting chicken inasal in town! (IMHO).
Juicy chicken! Also available in Hot and Spicy!
Taste: 10/10

Another shot. I love triangular shape of their "cup" of rice.. :)
The chicken meat is actually bigger in actual. 

These are the fresh fruits being displayed near the cashier. So love aAll the fruit shakes on their menu. Guaranteed fresh!

Being widely open and less walls makes the place a little cooler despite being situated in very sunny spot/area in the city.

The "petromax" light set ups on the posts and ceilings added a "cool" factor to the venue along with all the paintings hanging on the wall.

The three of us in front of the the restaurant.

Taste: 10/10
Ambiance: 10/10
Price: 10/10
Crew/Service: 10/10

Nice native interior. The chicken bbq looks juicy rin =)
I love the look of the place. So quirky especially the "peeing" faucet! hahaha Those shakes look really good too. I miss having guyabano shake. It's been ages since I last ate guyabano. :)
LOL at the quirky faucet. :)
And thumbs up for guyabano shakes! :D

Mai Flores said…
Wow! Another "KA" that I probably would love as well (loved Kah Lui by the way). =) Anyway, I like the idea that the food that you ordered were affordable. I wasn't that keen on the cup of rice though. If it wasn't unli rice, was it 'bitin' by chance?
Franc Ramon said…
I was able to try Ka Lui's before so I'm sure Ka Inato would also be equally satisfying as Ka Lui's in terms of food, service and ambiance.

I love the old gas lanterns hanging in the ceiling and the artworks. It gives this whole place a nice, rustic vibe.
Nauhaw naman ako sa pic ng refreshments nila. Haha. I love fruit shakes!

You perfectly rated Ka-Inato! Though I've not been there, the way I look at your candid, vivid pictures posted here, the place is so clean, the foods are excellent, and the service, I may believe you, is the best. You've been in the right perfect place, Grace.

The place would make you feel full to both your eyes and your palate. ^_^
Deann said…
Wow great finds! And the food on the menu I wanna try them. You know what I'm a kid who grew up eating on Fast foods! And now whenever I go to malls I always try some restaurants. I hope I could visit this place as well in the future! <3

Lol on NAUGHTY FAUCET. What a greta place.Missing Philippines now.
Ron Leyba said…
LOL at the naughty faucet. Not suitable for kids haha. Anyway, nice resto ambience and gimmick.
I do agree with you. The place looks cozy and figures of our national heritage - add it up with the foods they served. I like the Anito faucet, I might suggest that design to my friend and maybe put something like that in his new resto. :)
Jerome Ibuyan said…
Great place! Like tatess, the naughty faucet caught my attention, too. lol! The shakes look delicious!
Michelle said…
Sarap ng food!! Love the high ceiling, too. maaliwalas and presko. I lingered at the wash area, not because of the naughty faucet lol, but because of the sink. Is it just me or parang wala talagang sink? it looks to me like the water goes directly to the wooden surface.

Kanser 2018, the latest take on Noli Me Tangere.

One iconic Philippine theatre experience is Kanser, the stage version of Noli Me Tangere that is written by our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. There are many versions of this play by different theater groups, from musical to straight play. Gantimpala Theater Foundation made it as their own biggest production for so many years, it keep changing and upgrading in many aspects, from color feel, to music ambiance and of course the magnificent cast that is challenge to portray iconic characters onstage. Kanser 2018 proves to adopt the needful in terms of stage show, a showcase of photos and some graphics is on the projector during the performances, some new twist in some remarkable scenes is implemented, like the slapping scene of Maria Clara and Padre Salvi which the audience find it humorous. But the kissing scenes of Crisostomo and Maria Clara is always the favorite mostly by the students, they feel the “kilig” somehow.

Guadalupe The Musical, our miracle in Theater.

With the biggest Jackpot now in Ultra Lotto, everybody is asking for miracle, that they can have the winning number combination, that they win the jackpot and change their lives forever. Just like this musical Guadalupe, it answers a question that we need miracle, for us to have strong faith and earn the living that we want.

Guadalupe The Musical, Julie Borromeo’s Performing Arts Foundation, Inc current theater offering will help you realize that, there are miracles in life that we forgot to acknowledge, this are little miracles that we encounter in our daily lives, that instead of saying thank you, we ignore it because we aspire to be bigger, but this play made me realize a common cliché, sometimes dreams happen for those who are deserving to make it a reality, and that person don’t ask for that.
It is a superb musical to watch out for, even for non-Catholic it is worth a try due to its entertainment value, from the lighting design by John Batalla, the beautiful costumes, the wonde…
