A Minor Place @ Plaza Damas (Hartamas)
It’s usually when word and Instagram reaching me or my friends that determines our lunch spots. A minor place at Plaza Damas, is an exceptional. Or rather a coincidence because of the comfortable seating layout that’s a bit more spacious than a lot of other restaurants within the premise.
Progressive approach is very minimal in this enclave filled with very hip and modern eateries, almost non existing with most of the local dishes kept close to typical if not traditional. No fun or funky setting at this restaurant, instead kitchen and operational space took up the entire shop – not that it is a big premise and diners dine at semi open air courtyard in front of the shop. Not rendered, this typical local delight serves for quick meal. Rice with roasted or steam chicken, and roasted duck of pleasantly moist fatty crisp skin.
The place approaches quick and efficient services with their parade of various Chinese dishes, selling them as lunch and dinner buffet. I’m not sure if I’m up for that, so we ordered alacarte instead. Sour Choi Kiok is lip smacking mainly appetising from the sourness as well as the msg. Also expect generous amount of pork in it.
Dish pricing is slightly higher if not egregious and I’d definitely appreciate the bean sprouts to go with our rice if they were fatter and juicier.
