$60 Filipino brunch feast @ Lamesa

Now, we’re no strangers to Filipino food on Triple B, whether it’s the Filipino brunch buffet at Kanto or grabbing some kamayan all over this city. So when I heard about Lamesa, this funky little joint on St. Clair West, serving up a $60 discovery brunch for two, I was like, sounds like a nice, light meal for me! And lemme just say, you can definitely get your money’s worth here…

We’re talkin’ chicken ‘n waffles, Filipino style! Chicken is boneless, but nice ‘n juicy, and then you’ve got the purple ube waffle, which really kicks it up a notch!!!

lamesa_filipino_bacon (1)

Dude, this Filipino bacon is what makes it! Nice ‘n thick, with just a little hint of sweetness. I’d eat this for breakfast, lunch and dinner!!!!!!!

This Filipino french toast is stuffed with a purple yam jam. Dude, they put that shit in everything!!!!!!!

Now, you can eat a fried egg with that Filipino bacon, but it also goes nice with some garlic rice…

And you gotta try the garlic rice with some monkfish, deep-fried and crispy, with just a little sweetness.

This smoked sausage is sensational — I could crush a whole chain of these, bro!!!!

And then for dessert, you’ve got these plantain rolls, which are basically deep-fried bananas… and bananas is good!!!!

Washed it all down with a glass of tropical house punch. You’ve got calamansi, mango, guava, lychee, ginger beer… oh, and rum. Can’t forget the rum, son!!!!
