Imagine this: It’s 3:00 in the morning. You’re super exhausted from dancing the night away with your friends at one of BGC’s hippest hotspots, and all you want to do is just go home and eat warm and delicious comfort food. But what if you still need to drive a couple of miles to get to your house?
… Never fear, because Recovery Food is here! This diner is open 24/7, so people who are certified night-owls: call center agents, partyphiles, workaholics, and the like—Can indulge in their dishes.
I myself am not the type of person who likes to party and get wasted, soooooo I just visited the place at noon to have lunch. Hehe.
Interior. It’s designed like a spruced-up neighborhood eatery. Also, I really like it when you can see what goes on behind the scenes at a restaurant’s kitchen. It assures you that the food that they make is 100% fresh, with no kooky stuff added.
Menu: Start ‘em up (Barcia’s strips), Noodles (Rau men, Joe pho, My mami), Rice-a-bowls (Hey Jude’s paksig, SST, Alfonsorizo), Sandwiches (Amadobo sandwich), Sweets, and Extras.
Happy Pork Rice. All I can say is… Lovely. Absolutely lovely. The chunks of pork melted in my mouth right after I took a bite. The rice compliments the pork really well, and the coriander/garlic bits spice it up. So much flavor in a tiny bowl!
Mom had their Tapa de Morning. The tapa was just as tender as my pork, and had a really sweet taste.
My dad had the Amadobo with a scrambled egg. The pieces of adobo look slightly huge, in my opinion. But according to him, it had the same flavor and tenderness of the two other meals.
For dessert, we had Turondots with Dulce Gatas. Crispy on the outside, warm on the inside. I also love the dulce de leche dip that came with it.
This diner is worth visiting—From sun up to sun down, from the wee hours of the morning until you get your midnight cravings, Recovery Food is there for you.
