FOODTRIP(121): Antonio J

During our Zomato ✘ AbsCbn food crawl, as our first stop, we went at Antonio J in Marikina. I've been passing by this place since last year and was even planning to visit here but never got the chance to. So I was really excited to finally try their dishes here. 

Antonio J is a Filipino international soul food restaurant that opened a year ago (2015) in Marikina. It's really a good place to dine in with family and friends. 

Place is very homey, classy and spacious (they have more tables and chairs on the 2nd floor).

Here's what they served to us during our visit: 

Antonio J Classic Kare Kare (Php295) 
- Was already hungry at that time and this was the first dish served on our table. I was looking for the bagoong first but can't find, so I decided to try this without one. And wow! Their Classic Kare Kare tastes sooo good!! And when I finally tasted it with their bagoong, it was way better! I like that I can really taste the peanut butter in the sauce and the meat was so soft. Servings were even huge. This is definitely one of my fave Kare Kare :) 

*Forgot the name of the dish :( 
- Not a fan of this kind of dish but I have changed my mind. The taste of this dish was so flavorful and I love how the atchara and soy sauce (with the sili) combines well with this dish. 

Pinakbet con Bagnet (Php225) 
- I love the salty taste of this one. The veggies were fresh and the sauce was very tasty. 

*Forgot the name of the dish :( 
- Ooohhh I love the rice!!! The rice was cooked perfectly and the flavor was so good. Though I forgot the name of the dish, this is definitely A MUST TRY rice when you dine in here. 

Overall, I had a nice time trying out dishes from Antonio J. All of their foods were so good though my faves are their Kare Kare and the rice dish which I forgot the name :( I also checked their prices and I it's so affordable. Since I live near the area (Marikina), I would love to come back again here. Totally recommended for family and friends :)) 
Thanks again Zomato and Antonio J for this experience :)
