Casa Armas

Casa Armas is a Filipino-Spanish dining that serves paella, tapa, seafood and the like. I'm not big on squid but the squid my friend Lyn ordered was an instant hit to everyone.

Black squid

I like that this buttered chicken comes with a lot (a lot!) of garlic. It's just so bad, I had to order 2 more cups of rice (ruined my diet!)

Buttered Chicken

This special chicken was recommended by the server. We were disappointed because it does not seem special at all. It's too oily and bland. Even the kids did not enjoy eating it. They settled for the squid.

Special Chicken

It's a consolation that they serve bread and butter before the main dish for it took almost an hour for our order to be served. The service was poor. The servers looks gloomy and were very inattentive. Probably because it was almost closing time when we arrived. Just the same, it's not supposed to be that way because we're paying customers. Good thing I was with the company of friends. We just laughed at the bad reception from Casa Armas, Podium.

In fairnesss, the ambiance of Casa Armas is great. But then again, I can't eat the ambiance. When dining out, I'd always look for the food and great service. The question now is, will I still go back at Casa Armas?

  3. Those dark squids interest me so much. Must try this when I get the chance!

  4. The black squid is! I'm sure my husband will like that. But since you mentioned their poor service, I don't think I'll try this resto anytime soon. Thanks for the heads-up, Joy! Here's my FTF entry:
