Second stop of the EPIC Zomato x ABSCBN Antipolo Food Crawl was Marison's. Taking inspiration from the family's favorite Filipino restaurants in Metro Manila - Abe, Mesa and Romulo's - they decided to bring the same experience into the scenic and lush area of Antipolo.
Offering Modern Filipino cuisine, most of the dishes here came from family recipes. They also have a chef consultant from Marco Polo Davao to help them out with their menu.

|Natural light and lush greens!|

|Pork Binagoongan for 310Php|
This is not your usual saucy Pork Binagoongan. They've toasted the alamang to get this reduced sauce and smothered this into sinful Lechon Kawali chunks, topped with tomato slices, spring onions, green chili and egg plant slices on the side. It was also served with fresh green mango strips. Loved the crisp from the lechon kawali and the salty alamang. A nice take on a classic Filipino favorite.
|Sinaing na Buntot ng Tuna for 430Php|
|Crispy Tripe Kare-Kare for 375Php|
|A closer look at all the good stuff from this Kare-Kare!|
For dessert, we tried the following --
|Halo-Halo: Regular for 100Php | Large for 135Php|
|Sansrival for 140Php per slice | 1120Php Whole Cake|
I loved their Sansrival! According to Aldrich, this is their family recipe.
Layers of crisp meringue filled with sweet cream mixed with lots of cashew - they leveled up the Sansrival game by adding Macadamia!
To finish off this dessert, they topped it with more bits of cashew and more Macadamia!
It was delicious! Not too sweet and perfectly crisp.
