Army Navy opened up few weeks ago along Dela Rosa St, Makati and since I’m a big fan of pita bread (and dips and fillings) and thought of it as that of Café Mediterranean, I was really excited to try out their burritos (Not knowing that the wrapper itself was not actually made up of pita bread but soft tortilla).
Looking for some place to dine out to after a tiring Saturday OT, we were led to Army Navy for this was the only store opened late that night within the area (except of course 7-11).
1st impression: The store looks like a military bunker giving a masculine feel to it.
The counter area, stool chairs and wooden tables
As to menu, we sampled:
Cheese Quesadilla-Php85 -Nothing to rave about though. Even the salsa and the garlic/hot sauce didn’t help.
Steak Burrito-Php155 -We were surprise to learn that they serve burritos in huge sizes, as in ang hirap ngumanga at kainin as is! I’m about to ask for a fork and knife but looking around, I saw these signs:
1st sign from left: NO FORKS NEEDED, EAT WITH YOUR HANDS (Ok fine!)
Burritos were basically made up of meat, spanish rice, beans, onions, lettuce and cilantro wrapped in a flour tortilla.
We could have enjoyed our meal if not with the strong taste of cilantro (bakit kz may ganun pa?) Then I understand the purpose of the slice of lemon, may aftertaste at ‘umay’ factor kz sya (The whole night till the following day parang nalalasahan pa rin nmin sya. Hehe!) Anyway, it’s fun eating burritos, ang messy nmin! Laglagan ang mga fillings everytime kakagat kmi haha! ;)
Thanks to this LiberTEA-Php55, at least we tasted something soothing and refreshing. No doubt it’s brewed iced tea.
We’ll still come back though, maybe their burgers are better…
Sama ka? ;)
