Prepare to be disappointed. Or you know, just don't dine here.

Here's what we had:

Bagumbayan Lechon (P285)
lechon kawali chips with liver sauce and garlic vinegar
Lumpiang Hubad (P295)

Bella Bandida (P295)

Kinamatisang Pork Chop (P295)

Tarsillo Squid Al Jillo (P295)

Sisig Linares (P250)

Sago't Gulaman (P85)
My dad had been wanting to try out Crisostomo for the longest time, but when we dined here last month, we immediately decided that we're never coming back. Some of the dishes arrived cold. The crispy kangkong that came with the bangus wasn't crispy at all. The food tasted so so; what we only really liked was the baby squid and the mangga and bagoong that was on top of the bangus (it wasn't even the bangus that we liked!) I was most disappointed with the laing and lumpiang hubad because they were dishes I picked, but they tasted very plain, almost bland. I've never been more disappointed with sago't gulaman, I should've ordered from Chowking instead. It really was one of our worst dining experiences as a family. :(
