Chicken
recipes specialties and sweets
General's Chicken (225 php)
For me the General's Chicken style is similar to the Korean Fried Chicken or Manang's Chicken.  What I like about this is that the thigh fillet are neatly cut into chunks so you don't need to grab them with your hands.  The sweet-spicy sauce is also not overwhelmingly strong so you can eat this along with other viands.  It also has eggplant slices that complement in terms of flavor and texture.


Vegetables
vegetable kare kare
Vegetable Kare Kare (175 php)
The Vegetable Kare Kare is my favorite.  I'm a huge fan of kare-kare and Recipes does it right.


gising gising
Gising Gising (190 php)
The Gising Gising is so good and crave-worthy!  Sometimes, I would dine at Recipes simply just for this.  The right amount of spiciness that goes well with the coconut milk, savory flavor from the pork meat and pleasurable crunchiness from the chopped baguio beans makes this Gising Gising dish so irresistibly good.

Seafood
crispy tilapia
Crispy Tilapia (225 php)
I'm very picky with the tilapia fish.  I can only count by hand the tilapia dishes I like.  And, this Crispy Tilapia is one of them.


Drinks

 Specialties and Sweets
calamansi tart
Calamansi Tart (140 php)
The Calamansi Tart is a really tangy.  Best to eat it with the sweet meringue top if you can't tolerate sourness. 

barako brownie
Barako Brownie with Vanilla Sauce (160 php)
The Barako Brownie with Vanilla Sauce is to die for!  Perfect sweet meal-ender.  Bravo!!!

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Recipes and Specialties and Sweets is a great duo.  Now, you have a reason to drop by not just for the meals but for the sweet treats!
