TRICK'S is a quaint restaurant offering a taste of Asia. In a glance, it looks like a Korean restaurant because of the prominence of the Korean barbecue grills on top of their tables.

But if yo'll pay some attention in the background, you'll notice the Filipino decoration evident in those capiz windows near the counter. Those lanterns must be symbolising another Asian culture as well. It's a little bit of Asian culture, small things peppered around here and there.
When you open the door, you will see a life-size hanbok, a Korean traditional dress for women near one of the tables. I must admit that it was my first time for me to see one in real life.
We sat down there since we really went there for our Korean barbecue cravings. We are usual patrons of Donday Antipolo. So we thought it was time to make rounds and gave this new establishment a try.
The place was cozy and the staff was quite nice and engaging. We ordered samngeopsal for 250 pesos and it came along with 3 kinds of Korean side dishes or panchan. It was all so good!
But we had to admit that the panchan was not enough for the two of us - 'bitin'! There was also no refill like the usual tradition in Korean restaurants. But it's okay naman. If one wants more, they can easily order with pay.
We also crossed our fingers for the pad thai which also turned out to be good. I can not really comment on it a lot because it was my first time to eat pad thai. Surprisingly, I can say that it tasted okay for me even if it was my first time. I guess I'm just not used to it even if it's a famous Vietnamese dish.
Which brings me to this! I remember that they actually have combo meals to choose from! You don't always have to eat Korean or order big time for the grill.
This is an Asian themed resto, so there's a lot of treats to choose from. There's a small post under the clock of food combos where we got the idea to order pad thai and one ice tea for 160 pesos.
As for the ultimate question? Yes, we are going to be return customers. After all, the meticulous Bubbly Hubby enjoyed his stay as well. This is a great place to spend you and your OFW loved ones holiday this festive season. -
And, speaking of festive, I want to give you a heads up regarding SM's latest trends in their accessories department.
There are exquisite with beaded and embellished clutches, stunning statement necklaces and even bedazzled stackable bangles perfect for a night out.
Well, what do you know? I'm going to an event tomorrow for the Blogger's Christmas Party get together. I just might check out one of these to add sparkle to my ensemble!
