Countryside Restaurant: Not Your Ordinary Karinderya

Just when you thought you just have passed by an ordinary karinderya named "Countryside" along Katipunan Ave., don't just think again.

Slow down. Take it to the full stop. And then treat yourself with some delicious home-cooked dishes at the Countryside Restaurant.

Countryside has become my favorite Sunday hideout after hearing the mass at St. Pio Center near Eastwood City. Approximately a ten-minute cab-ride from the church.

Who can ever resist the pleasure of tasting this well-simmered Kaldereta dish with the beef starting to fall apart covered with the rich reddish sauce that was almost caramelizing? OMG!

Don't forget to try their Pork Binagoongan too. The eggplant is just so perfect to have been placed there. Don't miss it!

Countryside is famous for their barbecues too. My personal favorite is the Pwet ng Manok or the Chicken's Tail. Gian's pick is the Isaw or the Chicken's Intestine.

Yum. Yum. Yum.

But wait. There's more.

Achara anyone?

I've read from somewhere that some celebrities who used to frequent Countryside include John Lloyd Cruz, Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson. And then I started to guess what does Kim get at Countryside that she can hardly be seen to gain some weight at all? It's so unfair! Well some folks are just really gifted with good metabolism. 

And then some others just have to eat with a lot of moderation to avoid getting fat. But then sometimes we also lose control. Like me! Whenever I'm at Countryside during weekends. Hahaha.

Enjoy home-cooked dishes at the Countryside with prices starting at PhP 100 per dish. Barbecues start at PhP 22. 

Countryside Restaurant is located at 228 Katipunan Ave., Blue Ridge, Quezon City. You may call them at 647-1448.
