AVENIDA by Lispher Inn #Restaurant #LispherInn #FoodReview #RestaurantReview

I had never been here before, but as soon as Ms. +Jojie Alcantara (kodakerdabawenya.com) sends invites, I did not hesitate to say YES!

Before that,  I am curious to know the place,  so I ask Mr. Google for help and landed me to the website, Lispher Inn. Now, I know the exact location and still I am eyeing to see the place personally.

Lispher Inn is a quiet place for relaxation. It has great location within the city, but definitely a quiet location for the city. It felt that you are just at home away from home. Very promising. (read review here: EVERYTHING IS SIMPLE with LISPHER INN )

Aside from the room and functional amenities they have, They also have a restaurant called AVENIDA.

Avenida is a Spanish word means an avenue.

Entering the hotel, you will see two doors. One is going to the main hotel lobby and the other one is for the Avenida Restaurant.

You can still use the main door in entering the restaurant, because there is another entrance inside going to Avenida.

This is how it looks like.

The restaurant was so typical hotel restaurant, but the food are all delicious.

Eating here was a fun and unique experience, the food was excellent and presented very well. We especially appreciated the Food Tasting Event; Mr. Paul Borromeo (the owner) discussed to us the different dishes being serve to us, he was friendly and very knowledgeable.

It started with the huge siopao, PHp40 only. The size is as big as the regular Filipino plate use in dining.

Good for 2 - 3 person.

Sizzling Squid

A diced spicy squid served on a sizzling hot plate, it has green beans, carrots and corn and filled with a thick sauce. This dish is absolutely mouth-watering for me. PHp135 only.


A creamy stew with a cauliflower, broccoli and carrots. A different curry menu that adjusted to suit your palate. PHp90 only.

Bangus Belly with Water Spinach (Kangkong)

In the Philippines, the belly part is the most sought after part in a fish. When it served the belly part is the most devoured, before the head and the body.

This is why Avenida make a menu for the belly part alone. The water spinach or the kangkong leaves added to make another dimension in texture which complements the soft tender meat of the fish. Perfectly match also with the cucumber as side dish. PHp260 only.

And the famous MISONO BEEF

A popular Japanese dish that all throughout the years, it has been embraced and enjoyed by Filipinos.

A marinated thinly sliced beef, so soft and taste so good. Easy to slice, quick to chew(so succulent and tender)  and so yummy tasty with special gravy on yellow rice. PHp135 only.

Fresh Fruit Shake-WATERMELON PHp60

The ultimate thirst quencher, it has very low calorie fruit
juice. Best enjoyed during hot summer. So cool!

Avenida offers MONGOLIAN BUFFET (Lunch & Dinner) for only PHp165, every Monday's and Friday's.

The Fooders taste and enjoy the food so much, and take note we based on our sense of smell and taste to appreciate all the dishes being served to us.

  16. Food looks divine. Esp those thick stuffed dumplings looks really appetizing...

  17. Food looks basic but that Misono Beef is the one that makes it stand out. Definitely that is the star of the menu -- should be excellent!

  18. That Siopao is humongous! But i am very much interested to try out the Misono beef. Looks yummy! :)
