I like restaurants that serve comfort food. You will never get tired of home cooked meals which brings back childhood memories. Whether it’s mom’s beef tapa, classic fried chicken or mac n’ cheese, everything is a favorite and will make you feel that “There’s no place like home”.
This is what Chef Baba Ibazeta Benedicto wants us to feel in Nono’s at U.P. Town Center in Katipunan. Very simple yet when you enter, you will feel the welcoming vibe and warm greetings of the staffs.
What captured us on the starters menu is the fried truffle cheese wantons. I am very overwhelmed when I saw truffle and cheese. Two of my favorites combined. Just as what I expected. Every bite is bursting with different flavors.
FRIED HONEY CHEESE WANTON (Php 155)
The combination of everything is good: The cheesy goodness of mozzarella & cheddar inside and the thin, crispy wanton wrapper. I love how the drizzled honey and nuts added flavors to every bite.
NONO’S HOMESTYLE FRIED CHICKEN (Php 295)
I love the crispy breading of the chicken. I know fried chicken is very common, but to achieve the perfectly fried “fried chicken” is hard. The dinner rolls are soft.
ROASTED BEEF BELLY (USDA) (Php 495)
The three slices of slow roasted beef belly, drizzled with balsamic glaze. Very Mouth-watering!! The beef belly is so tender!! It goes well with the mashed potatoes.
It comes with horseradish cream and gravy sauce :
Of course! You shouldn’t miss desserts here as Chef Baba is known for her cakes from Classic Confections. We tried one of her best selling cakes, which is the Chocolate Oblivion.
NONO’S CHOCOLATE OBLIVION (Php 155)
Every bite is to die for. I’m not kidding. This flourless cake is so soft and moist. Every layer has a different story. The walnut and praline crust added crunch to the cake.
They also have other cakes and goodies.
I love every distinct flavor of each dish. I highly recommend everything we ordered! From the fried wantons, chicken, roast beef and the chocolate oblivion!!! I just hope they will open a branch in San Juan area so that it will be nearer to our place.
