Mesa Filipino Moderne is the fancy Gerry’s Grill. It’s a more upscale restaurant for traditional Filipino food with a better dress staff located at the Henann Regency.
The service was exceptional and everything came out in a timely manner. The restaurant is an open air and right on the beach. You could feel the cool breeze gently touch the skin on your face as the smell of the food cooking in the kitchen engulfs your nostrils.
The restaurant is right on White Beach path. The patio has a view of the beach and you could people watch as you have dinner. We ordered everything on the menu, but I’m only going to touch on my favorite items:
- Sisig In A Pouch – Savory pork sisig served in a pouch. The sisig was piping hot when you open up the pouch. The aroma of the citrus pork were awesome and the grilled onions with the slight salty pork were divine.
- Sisig W/ An Egg – Savory pork sisig served on a sizzling plate with an egg on top. Some of my favorite items in the world next to carbs and grilled meat. The dish is serve sizzling and you could see the smoke trail as the waitress brought it out for us. It’s smelled like pork heaven dressed up on a plate. Refer to #1 for taste.
- Grilled Liempo – Liempo aka pork belly. The seared pork belly only opened up to sweet tenderness. The saltiness of the outside quickly went away as you chew the juicy parts of the pork belly. The peppery garlic soy sauce added a nice sweetness to the juicy morsels of pork. The texture resembled the best steaks in the world.
Overall, Mesa Filipino Moderne isn’t going to brake the bank if you dine here. It’s actually pretty cheap like the rest of the Boracay. The service could rival any mid-tier restaurant and the restaurant offers robust flavors.
