Kabayan signboard
“UCKY” plaza has got good food

First time I tried Filipino cooking – as in, authentic Filipino food, not Singaporean food cooked by Filipino domestic helpers.

Rachel brought Leon and I to this interesting Filipino restaurant called Kabayan Filipino fast food restaurant hidden in a corner in Lucky Plaza on the third floor.

Here’s the exact address: 304 Orchard Rd #03-25 Lucky Plaza

The place is great! There were not many locals sighted there. Also, there were no pesky posters boasting of wins from the millions of overrated local food guides like Yummy King, Makansutra, etc. Hence not yet having to pander to mass appeal.

Leon commented that eating at Kabayan feels like dining in another country. I sort of agree with him too, given that we don’t really understand what’s on the menu, and wasn’t able to communicate too well with the restaurant staff.

As a whole, the food was great (and different) and the price was reasonable. I will definitely visit Kabayan again.

Here are some pictures to share.
