One thing I love about the place is the preservation of the filipino tradition and culture because their theme is Filipino. It's mesmerizing to watch waiters and waitresses dressed with our very own Philippines national costume. The inside of the restaurant is like a traditional...More

Tuna Panga is one of the best-selling dishes in STK. The ambiance of the place is you are on your own ancestral home. Perfect for all occasions.

The place used to be our secret place because it was only popular amongst those working in a nearby government office- a residential area but 15 years later, the houses are now restos and STK's price is no longer appealing especially since their food are...More

First of all, it's hard NOT to remember the rather longish name. STK stands for the local dialect's term for grilled, sour soup, and pickled, a description of the type of food one can order in the restaurant. The ambience of this seafood house is unique. It's actually an old house with 1930s-1960s memorabilias and antiques. Their POS is even this old cash register. Their phones are the old ones with dials. Then the food. They serve authentic grilled Filipino dishes like the jaws of the tuna fish ("panga" in the local dialect) and innovative creations like curried crabs. Finally, the bill...US$7/head and you head out with a doggy bag! Good ambience, excellent food, and great value for money.
