Food Post: Php99 Meals at Gilligan’s

AJ and I had our dinner earlier at Gilligan’s (Robinson’s Galleria branch).  We were actually curious with their P99.00 meals that comes with unlimited rice, and since I haven’t tried it yet (I usually prefer Dencio’s for Pinoy food), we decided to give it a try.

We didn’t set our expectations high with our orders, thinking that they would probably scrimp on the servings because of the P99 meal price.

But Gilligan’s proved us wrong!   The servings were plenty, and our food choices were all good.  Here are what we just had:

Pork Sisig.   I’d say this one is better than Dencio’s.    The chicaron was very crunchy!

Sweet and Spicy Squid.   Very flavorful and surprisingly good!  A definite must-try!

Side order:  Pinakbet.    This one is okey, but Dencio’s version is much, much better.

We pretty much enjoyed at meals at Gilligan’s and we’ll definitely come back to try their other staples.    Nothing beats Pinoy food, talaga!

Aside from good food, we also enjoyed the ambiance of the place which is very clean and nicely decorated.  Side comment lang, I don’t think their purely Filipino cuisine jibes well with the nautical decors:

By the way, I am really happy with my photos here, and the secret to these good shots is no less than a camera tripod stand!   AJ thought of buying this when he saw one at Saizen for only P85.00!

The mini-tripod stand is also adjustable in height, how cool!

I strongly advise those with digital cameras to get a mini-tripod stand for clearer and professional-looking shots.  I am absolutely happy with mine and I realized now that I really have to learn how to hold a camera properly before I even think of upgrading.  But right now, the tripod is a big help in stabilizing my shots.
