Tolits Restobar and KTV: Marikina's go to place for lutong bahay specialties

This week, I was invited by China of ZomatoPH to try out the food in Tolits: a restobar located in Nangka, Marikina. The ambiance was quite chic, with the look and feel of a modern restaurant. The indoors were well-lit and spacious too. I must say that the place itself was clean and easy on the eyes.

The delicacies were quite affordable and palatable as well. A number of their dishes showcased the unique and delectable Marikeno cuisine. We then tried some of their specialties including:

Tolits Chef Special Salad at Php 180. This was a mix of fresh garden vegetables including lettuce, carrots, cucumber and the obligatory bacon bits. The vegetables were crunchy and delicious; plus the bacon bits gave it more flavor.

Everlasting at Php 310. This Marikina specialty is their own version of meatloaf. The meat was soft and mushy; and it was easily digestible. It was quite tasty, though. 

The place even had a dartboard for those who loved to play darts while drinking.

The interiors were very spacious.

They even had a separate space for the bar.

Pork Sinigang sa Pakwan at Php 320 was another local specialty. It was the usual sinigang save for the watermelons which were cooked to a bright yellow color. It wasn't that sour, though. But, the meat was tasty, and the melons tasted like papaya. 

What a quotation.

Bulalo Steak at Php 300 was their own interpretation of the Batangas specialty. The meat itself was quite chewy and fatty. The gravy, which was made with fat, was thick and tasty.

Beef Sinigagng sa Bayabas at Php 300. I must admit the beef here was very tender. The soup was also delicious; plus the vegetables added another tasty touch.

The interiors had art deco lights.

Binagoongang Platter at Php 220. The main attraction here was the really spicy rice. It was a good accompaniment to the meet due to the sharp, distinct taste of chili and bagoong.

Crispy Kare Kare at Php 350 tasted more like crispy pata. Eating the pork alone satisfied me. The meat plus fat were very crispy. While the servings were small, I still commend the excellent style of cooking employed.

Turon ala Mode at Php 150 was their excellent iteration of dessert. It was composed of a huge chunk of vanilla ice cream on chocolate covered turon with its own choco filling. I must admit that this is the dish I enjoyed the most in the resto.

Tolits Restobar serves lutong bahay Filipino specialties that are quite simple yet filling. It is located in Citi Centre Building, J. P. Rizal Street, Marikina, Nangka, Marikina City.
