Smoked pork. with O’Brien’s version of BBQ sauce. The different between bakas and pork is the texture of the meat. Bakas meat tends to be tougher as Wild boar work out a lot more than pig.

I cook, I eat and I always looking for good food!


  1. i introduce you to my friend. today they all come and sit waiting for to order.But to their dismay, the waiter told that the chef didnt accept any costumer bcoz he is so BZ. nobody there and the restaurant is wide open. its like menghalau ur costumer. My friends deserve an explanation an apology. malu rekomen again.

  2. Similar experience to the one above. I went with a group of 6 others yesterday. When ordering, a staff whispered to the waiter taking our order that the chef “does not feel like making burgers anymore” and to tell anyone who would wish for a burger that “it was sold out”. Waited for ONE HOUR before our drinks even arrived (took them that long to bring the canned drinks out of the fridge to us) . And even that was because we called the waiter to ask about our drinks FOUR times. Otherwise I don’t think we would see anything on the table at all. Everytime we ask about our food, we were told that they’re on the way. After waiting 2 HOURS, they say they would compensate by having everything we’re having “on the house”. It would be a good thing, but then what they didn’t tell us at that moment was that their “kitchen is closed” and that they “ran out of everything”. Worst dining experience ever. Highly would NOT recommend.
