A fusion of classic Pinoy favorites and modern delectable cuisine, mouthwatering yet affordable dishes. This is how Giligan's Restaurant describes itself. Customers will confirm.
After watching a movie and shopping at the SM North EDSA, we decided to have a dinner at Giligan's Restaurant in Skygarden.
Why I gave them a poor quality service rating? Because of some delay in their services and an incident wherein we ordered a specific set of dishes but when the receptionist served our order it's not the same as shown in the menu. We presumed that the particular dish is really part of our order because that was delivered. After less than a half hour, a receptionist told us that one of the dishes delivered is not part of the set we ordered. She asked us if we are willing to pay the the dish which was partly consumed. Another one is that their vegetables are not fresh and not properly cooked.
Let's forget the issue and let's take a look at their menu. Hopefully, their balanced scorecard will improve. I hope the management will use some of their capital for the training of their staff. I also hope that the staff of the other branches does not have those bad attitude.
Their featured dishes include Giligan’s Grilled Platter (P592), a combination of grilled pork liempo, bangus belly, squid and chicken inasal that is good for 4 to 5 persons; Sizzling Pork Sisig (P182), a “must have” Giligan’s version of the local favorite tossed in our special sauce and served very crunchy; Kare-kareng Gulay (P143), a delightful combination of tropical vegetables cooked in peanut sauce served with our famous homemade bagoong; and Crispy Pata (P430), a mouth-watering crispy on the outside and juicy inside deep fried pork knuckle.
Their must-try appetizers are sizzling pork sisig (P182), shrimp rolls (P198) and pork BBQ (P26).
For platters, recommended dishes are their roasted chicken which maybe ordered in who at P360 or half at P200, boneless chicken inasal, boneless chicken teriyaki both at P142, and chicken binakol at P168.
