From its humble beginnings as a cafeteria, Filipino restaurant Ombu Kusina has come a long way to become a full-fledged restaurant with a catering service and as an events venue. As Ombu Kusina celebrates its 4th Anniversary this year, patrons get to enjoy selected desserts for only PHP 4 (and the rest at PHP 99 like this Frozen Brazo de Mercedes) by ordering any one of the Chef’s Picks starting March 15, 2017!
Frozen Brazo de Mercedes
Ombu’s Frozen Brazo is my fave! Get it for only PHP 99 this year! (It’s usually at PHP 180).
Ombu Chef’s Picks
Gambas in Garlic and Olive Oil (PHP 370) – Seasoned shrimps sauteed in olive oil with garlic and chili slices

Uniquely Filipino Dishes
As a Filipino Restaurant, Ombu Kusina doesn’t restrict itself to just traditional dishes. It also has some modern Filipino fusion like the Sisig Pizza and the Salted Egg Spaghettini. I loved how the salted egg was generously rubbed into the spaghettini.
Sisig Pizza (PHP 490) – Pork sisig pizza with onions, green chili, mozzarella with fried egg on top
Salted Egg Spaghettini or Itlog na Maalat Spaghettini (PHP 240) – Spaghettini tossed in golden sauce of salted egg yolks, sprinkled with tomatoes, cucumber and salted egg whites
