WHERE IN METRO MANILA: Fast food or fast good? Chef Lau's Pugon Roasters serves firebrick oven-roasted traditional Pinoy dishes


July 27, 2015 - 101st anniversary of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ). My R.G. Manabat & Co. (KPMG in the Philippines) batchmates in the audit group decided to go out to lunch to celebrate God's 101 years of blessings to the Church.

We looked for a good restaurant in Ayala Triangle Walkways in Makati. We decided to try Chef Lau's Pugon Roasters, a restaurant that serves firebrick oven-roasted traditional Pinoy dishes like roast chicken, pork liempo, beef, and other great stuff at a very affordable price made special by one of the best chefs in the country.

Chef Lau worked in many local fine dining restaurants as well as restaurants in France, Australia and New York. He was one of the judges and hosts in the highly popular and successful "Master Chef” international T.V. franchise cooking show series here in the Philippines.

Kier, Alexa and Jessica tried Pugon Roast Chicken (P99/P119), signature 1/4 chicken. Bel and I ordered Smokey Chicken BBQ (P99/P119), while Vico and Hya tried Sizzling Chicken Sisig (P99/P119).
