So much for the restaurant's general information, let's start talking about its food.
This is Bulgogi. It is very sweet. It has thick sauce.
This is Pan Seared Prawns. The Prawns are clean and soft. The soup is flavorful.
This is Grilled Mexican Chicken. It's spicy in flavor. It is delicious but the chicken is not cooked well- quite hard to cut.
This is Beef Rendang. It is slightly sweet. In some ways, the beef is cooked uniquely because it is abundant in flavors. The beef absorbed a lot of ingredient extracts that make it taste just as it is.
This is Davao White Marlin. It doesn't taste very good and is tangy.
This is Sweet and Sour. It's very easy to describe this dish in one word-delicious.
This is Humba. Its soup is great. It is not so oily but the some parts of the pork are hard to chew and cut.
This is Coco Fry Cream Dory. It is very yummy.
This is Kimchi. It is spicy and holds kicks of flavors.
This is Leche Flan. It is made with milk giving the consumers a milky taste. It is delicious.
These are some of the Japanese foods. The vegetables and fishes are fresh.
For those who plan to throw a party, it's not impossible at Cafe Gloria. Right at the corner of the veranda is Hangover, a mobile bar with an array of alcoholic refreshments.
It's like you're truly in a bar with their staff service and alcoholic containers
