LAVA Resto Bar and Grill: one of Timog Avenue's secrets

Timog Avenue is home to some of the best drinking places and grills in Quezon City. LAVA Resto Bar and Grill is one of the newer grills in the area. Fortunately, I got a chance to experience the place to check its dishes.

The grill had this art deco/ hispter feel. There was a freedom wall where diners posted pictures and messages. Also, they had the logo painted in black and white in one of the walls. The furniture even reminded me of one of those classic bars in Manila.

The place has been around for a year. According to the owners, their specialties are more on American themed dishes with emphasis on meat. As a meat lover, I surely couldn't wait to taste what they had to offer. The menu included BBQ Pork Ribs, Seafood in Olive Oil and Garlic Pasta, Savory Chicken, Classic Burger, and Buffalo Wings. Plus a bucket of Brew Kettle.

We started with their appetizers. The Buffalo Wings had this mildly spicy taste and delicious barbecue sauce. It was also in generous servings. I'd say that the skin was pretty remarkable. It was chewy and savory. The Seafood Pasta was less remarkable. The dish was pretty salty; and the seafood wasn't so fresh anymore. This, however, was redeemed by the BBQ Pork Ribs. The sauce was excellent. The servings were also good. It was also topped with garlic rice. Furthermore, the meat can easily be stripped off the bones without any difficulty. The Savory Chicken was well cooked. The meat was tender. Also the skin was tasty. The Classic Burger was also well-cooked. It had a thick patty generously topped with big buns and piping hot mozzarella cheese. In sum, I'd say that their dishes were pretty notable. But I must say that they need something to mark the distinction in their meals. The prices are quite reasonable as well. 

LAVA Grill seems to be one of the more discreet places to share a drink or meet friends or family. The quaint ambiance and casual interiors can serve to soften the mood and promote a fun and friendly conversation. LAVA Grill is located at 79 Timog Avenue, QC (In front of Buddy's)
