The Maginhawa food strip and its neighboring streets continue to thrive as more commercial spaces in the area are made available to both veteran restaurant entrepreneurs and startups. There are a couple of food parks around the place, one of which is the 150 Maginhawa Food Park. Located in it is the Ahlee restaurant of which I had the chance of visiting to.
According to Ahlee’s owner, Clarence, the restaurant was named such after his youngest daughter, Ahlee. They have a wide variety of food options to pick from, ranging from the staple chicken, pork, and beef dishes, to the more unconventional ones such as lamb, among others. Note that they also serve seafood here at Ahlee’s.
I suggest that you order Ahlee’s T-Bone steak when you get to visit them. One of Ahlee’s best-selling meats, which is their T-Bone steak, is actually available in various sizes, ranging from small, big, and large, to extra large. Their heftiest serving of this dish is priced at Php280, which isn’t that bad of a deal since you get to have a plate of the goodness there is in their tender and well-seasoned steak. Along with it was a pair of delicious gravies – that of mushroom and red wine.
Ahlee’s Marcus Tasty Belly also got the thumbs up from me and my friends. For a measly price of Php150, the richness of the flavors in this dish make up for its fattiness. The sweet and tangy flavors of the mango salsa actually complemented the taste of the meat.
Finally, if you are a fan of Cyma’s Greek rocket salad, which costs around Php600 – Php 850, then you should also try out Ahlee’s counterpart for a fraction of the price. Theirs scream a loud ‘steal deal’ at only Php160.
Next time you visit the Maginhawa food strip, do visit Ahlee’s and I assure you that this restaurant will be your go-to place for grilled quality meats.
