Unlike my experience in the Remedios branch, my experience in Fantastic Chef Taft was superb! The service was way better because all the staff were trained properly and they treat each other like families; the tables were larger; and the resto was more spacious. There was generally a lighter mood at the Taft branch of Fantastic Chef. To be honest, I was going to ignore Joel’s invitation to come here but the owner dispelled all doubts when I decided to give the franchise another chance.
Take note that you must put in “2472 Leon Guinto Street” in Waze or Google Maps. I ended up on Ayala Avenue when I keyed in “Fantastic Chef Taft”. (I already reported this error in Google Maps.)

Jaypen and Red like the Pork Belly, while I preferred the Skirt Meat and Seasoned Pork Neck.
What’s unique about Fantastic Chef is the cheese dip that they heat on the grill along with the meats.
