Quality home-cooked food from Tres is such a delight. Eating quality food that is thoroughly prepared, from the moment they chose the ingredients to the part it is served to the customers, simply proves the high regard that the restaurant has for us customers.
We visited the Tres restaurant located on the 2nd floor of the Annex in SM North, Quezon City. And they are open during mall hours.
They also have the recently opened branch in the ground floor of Keyland Ayala SLC Building, Rufino in Makati City. This one is just near the corner of Ayala Avenue, Salcedo Village.
To match the food, their tables and chairs are set up like the ones set up in traditional Filipino homes. It’s like it’s calling to you to sit down and enjoy Grandma’s delicious home-cooked meal.
The place is spacious and it gives this traditional Filipino house vibes.
THE FOOD AND PRICE
Tres serves Filipino and Spanish dishes that we Filipinos love.
The restaurant is famous for its Kare-Kare-Kare. Yup, there is that extra ‘Kare’ to it that everyone who tries it seems to fall in love with the dish. The extra ‘Kare’ actually refers to the extras they put in terms of sauce, peanut, and bagoong for customers to really enjoy the dish. Depending on the kind of Kare-Kare-Kare you order, the price ranges from Php 300 to Php 820.
Aside from their Kare-Kare-Kare, the restaurant also serves Ensaladang Talong, Pinakbet, Laing, Sizzling Adobo Belly, Bulalo, Sinigang, Crispy Tilapia, Crispy Pata, Binagoongang Lechon Kawali, and more of favorite Filipino dishes.
For Spanish dishes, Tres offers Classic Beef Salpicao, Gambas Al Ajillo, Lengua con Setas, Lamb Adobo, and more.
Their rice options include Lechon rice, Pandan rice, and Kalkag rice.
For desserts, they have a wide collection of favorite Filipino desserts like turon, leche flan, and biko.
The drinks they have are the usual serving of water, softdrinks, juice, shakes, tea, and coffee. They also have Sagao’t Gulaman.
For a two-person meal, you can eat your fill with a Php 1,500 budget.
THE FOOD THAT WE TRIED
We didn’t miss the chance to try their bestseller dish and those that fit our craving.
The platter is a big order that is good for sharing. It has beef ribs, pork knuckles, prawns, and vegetables on it. It also has the extra sauce, peanuts, and their own original bagoong that made this extra delicious for my palate.
Crispy Tilapia (Php 323)
This dish is of course typically found in Filipino homes, but eating it in Tres is like having an upgraded version of it.
Beef Bulalo (Php 483)
We’ve chosen Beef Bulalo for the soup. The soup tastes amazing, and the vegetables on it really go well with the beef.
This one is definitely a hit for everyone in our table. The ground beef, vegetables, coconut milk, and spices made this dish truly astounding.
Their Kalkag rice comes with dried shrimp on it. This really goes well with our other selection. One serving can be shared with 3 to 4 people.
Sisig has become one of the favorite dishes amongst us. This was not too spicy and it tastes great.
Lumpiang Shanghai (Php 273)
The Lumpiang Shanghai tastes good, but I wish there are more pieces on one serving. Their serving is good for sharing between 2 to 3 people. It also comes with sweet and sour vinegar.
Turon (Php 173)
It’s not the usual langka-banana combination. For their turon, it is filled with the banana and ube. It also has a coconut and langka sauce to be enjoyed with. This tastes good and I would have probably ordered more if only I wasn’t already full.
Halo-halo (Php 143)
There are a lot of things going on in their Halo-halo and it tastes great. It is thick and creamy, unlike the ones you typically encounter.
The perfect drink for Filipino dishes. I love the sweetness of it in between my bites of different dishes.
