It was a hot afternoon during the summer of 2012 and I was out with hubby to take care of some personal business. It was way passed lunch and we haven't had our sup yet as we play the waiting game with a client. We decided to fickle around a little time, and take our sustenance (much called lunch), while waiting for some papers to be processed. Since we were very near Paseo de Magallanes, we skedaddled our way to the place and instantly decided to try out a store called Dayrit's.
|Yes! They deliver!
Dayrit's had been hiding right out at the far end building in Paseo de Magallanes stretch for a while now but we haven't had the chance to try it. It was not as glamorous as it's competitors but it was packed with people. Looking around the space, you'll instantly notice that it has been in that location for a long time already, with not-so-new furniture and fixtures (like your traditional old-school eateries back in the 80s). Even the staff, most were almost hitting the senior (or as hubby would say, "seasoned") bracket, seeming to have been working with the business for a while now. Anyway, we checked their simple menu (old-fashioned as it was, with a laminated piece of colorful paper enlisting what is being served, having the price at its right side) and decided to try the following.
Roast Beef Plate for 300php
An overwhelming serving of their en-famed roast beef that is tender and flavorful (with just the right touch of saltiness), served with vegetables, a choice of bread or rice and baked potato topped with cheese and bacon bits. It's preparation delivered a juicy meal, enough to smack your lips with appreciation and the right fill. This one is actually good to share with somebody [or can satisfy one super hungry tummy]. Two thumbs up with a good smile from a content customer.
Roast Beef Ghetti for 205php
Roast beef with spaghetti served in a (Carabao designed) sizzling plate. It comes with wheat bread smothered with butter, and extra gravy for the roast beef. Again, the roast beef in this dish was as delectable as we encountered of the Roast Beef Plate. The spaghetti, served beside the roast beef, was somewhat underwhelming -- the sauce was a bit sour for my palate, but the cheese was generous. I would have expected a power meal but I think this one is not a straight line for my taste buds.
Overall, since roast beef is their specialty (together with their burgers), I can say that they've got the one of the best roast beef servings you can find in town. I ought to try their burgers next time and more of their Roast Beef variants. Check out their menu below and have that authentic experience! Enjoy.
