The Barn by Tipsy Pig, UP Town Center

We had some guests from Japan last December. A professor whom we are close with and his students were in Manila in part to explore research topics on transportation and also for his students to have some exposure outside their laboratory in Tokyo. As per his usual request, we arranged for dinner at a restaurant featuring Filipino food. Our staff made reservations at The Barn at the UP Town Center. They had tried it once before and were all praises for the food they ate there. Here's what we ordered for dinner with our guests.

I forget exactly what this is but it is fish and it was really good

The place is highly recommended especially for big groups. The servings are really for sharing so a small group won't allow you to enjoy a variety of orders. The service was also very good with their staff being very attentive. They were also knowledgeable about the food they served and so you can ask them for recommendations like what's popular with their customers. We thought the amount we paid for all the food and drink we ordered was fair considering our big group, serving sizes, and (of course) the quality of the food. We look forward to the next time we eat here again. Perhaps it would be during one of our lunches out of the office?
