SAMMY’S RESTAURANT is a rustic hole-in-the-wall opened by couple Sammy and Dorothy Isidro. The restaurant in Valley View Subd. seats around 20 people and it opens for breakfast and dinner.
Here is a quick rundown of why you should go to SAMMY’S.
THUMBS UP SERVICE
Sammy’s requires reservation to ensure that you can get a table. In my case, I just sent a message to their facebook page and I got a confirmation immediately. The menu was also shared with me and I was given an option to pre-order.
When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed by the owner/chef Sammy and we were led to the second floor where the restaurant is located.
All throughout the course of our meal, Sammy and his staff were attentive to our needs.
The sunlight gives such a lively brightness to the room, thanks to the glass windows lined up through one side of the room.
On the other side are industrial/rustic design pieces that are complemented by the Edison bulbs hanging from the ceiling. The Edison bulbs connected by pipes wall display is an artwork created by Sammy himself and can be bought from Sammy’s.
The table setting is so Instagram-worthy with the burlap place mat and small plant centerpiece on the rustic wooden table.
The theme continues to their wash room, which is equipt with a “kawali” sink and decorated with wooden accents.
Even though it was a sunny day, it was pleasantly cool inside the restaurant. I must add, the music selection that they play in the restaurant was a relaxing accompaniment to our meal.
Since my daughter is already 3 years old, she preferred to sit at the dining bench. I was not able to ask if they have a high chair but it would be really good if they had one for guests who will dine in with young kids.
I pre-ordered our food, so in just a few minutes after we were seated, our food was delivered to our table by no other than Chef Sammy.
Our daughter couldn’t wait to try the Banana Bread French Toast. It was a good twist to the good ol’ Banana Bread.
To warm our tummies, we ordered the Hot Bicolano Tabrilla Chocolate and the Old Fashioned Hot Chocolate. Both have Tabrilla from Bicol as base but the Old Fashioned Hot Chocolate has added milk to it. It was so good I could drink both in one meal.
The Sammy’s Breakfast, which is the best-seller, combines all the classic Filipino breakfast favorites. It has Danggit, Longganisa, Tapa, Tocino, Omelette and Garlic Fried Rice with tomatoes and cucumbers on the side. Serving is good for 1-2 persons. I loved this platter!
D’s Breakfast is an American breakfast feast with sliced ham, sausage, bacon, hash brown, sunny side up eggs and pancakes. The bacon, crunchy hash brown and fluffy pancakes stood out in this platter.
I was already full but I couldn’t resist not to taste their desserts.
The Brownie was delightfully paired with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. My daughter was over the moon for this.
Mango crepes are my favorite and usually the crepes I eat are those with Nutella and whip cream. Their version of the Mango crepe with vanilla sauce was equally delicious. The crepe was packed with mango filling and it was good in cleaning the palate. I was secretly happy that my husband was so full, I had all of it for myself.
Needless to say, we really enjoyed our brunch at Sammy’s. I look forward not only to have brunch at Sammy’s again but to also try their dinner menu. By the way, Sammy and Dorothy are professional singers with more than a decade of experience performing abroad. I am excited to hear them sing when we return to try their dinner menu.
Check out Sammy’s and find yourself in Cainta over and over again.
