Three Sisters' Restaurant of Pasig

Only a few restaurants can stand the test of time.  With prized heirloom recipes being handed down from one generation to the next, it is uncertain whether a certain generation of diners can still appreciate recipes that has been handed down by almost a lifetime. 

Last Saturday, we found out why this restaurant is a favorite among many Pasig habitué's until now. 

Three Sisters' Restaurant was first put up in 1941 by Lola Rosa Francisco, who is lovingly remembered to be always in the kitchen preparing hearty Filipino dishes for her family.  Her passion for cooking drove her to put up her own luncheonette in Poblacion, Pasig.  In 1970, Lola Rosa's little luncheonette transformed to a successful restaurant and later transferred to Kapitolyo, Pasig where they serve customer favorites such as pork barbecue, pancit bihon, sinigang na kanduli sa miso and beef caldereta.

Three Sisters' Restaurant has 3 indoor dining areas and one outdoor dining area, just in case you'd like to dine al fresco.  It is my first time to dine here with my family and I noticed that it is quite popular.  The dining crowd are mostly families, groups of friends, the occasional foodie couple, but one thing is for sure, there is always a customer coming in to dine in the restaurant no matter what time of day it is.  This is considering that this restaurant is not in your typical mall.  

We were at the restaurant from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and I guess this only goes to show how at home we were at the restaurant.  We chose to stay at the long table with a view of the pocket garden, ordered our favorite Filipino comfort food and just like any other Filipino family would do, laughter and stories were shared on that long table along with simple home cooked Filipino dishes that are way too familiar and gives you a sense of "home".

I guess the no-frills recipes are what makes this restaurant special.  The food is simple and upfront, no pretensions.  The price points are fair (if not inexpensive) and if you're up for a food crawl in Pasig City, don't miss passing by this famous Pasig resident.
