Casa Marcos ♥



I haven’t seen Mom and Dad so excited in such a long time. They are blabbering about the meals they had at Casa Marcos along Roxas Boulevard in the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. I can feel the energy as they describe animatedly the jumbo pandesal, the plump almejas, the juicy steak ala pobre, the tasty paella… 

The hullabaloo is contagious.



The complimentary “jumbo” pandesal arrives in 1/3 of its original size.
I have to say though I like this mini version more, fits perfectly when I stuff the whole thing into my mouth. Soft and hot with a very thin layer of crisp. I can eat a whole basket of this.


Adobo Flakes with Kesong Puti Pandesal – I don’t just dip. I soak it in the gravy.
The saucier, the messier, the better. 


Almejas – very tasty stuff, except there is more garlic and cheese than the
skinny, skinny clam meat


Kalderetang Usa – Mom and Dad don’t eat beef so we skip steak ala pobre and order this.
Very tough, very chewy. A challenge even to my big, strong, muscular jaw.


Paella Valenciana – so wet, so bland


Next time I’ll order pandesal only.


With the parentals


As usual, we end our meal with Bar Dolci gelato
