With a witty play of words on the Filipino term kubo, Cube-O Grill (pronounce as kub-o) is a native style, open-air restaurant mostly made mostly of beautiful hardwood materials. The restaurant serves Filipino cuisine. Their staple Cube-O Salo-salo platter has grilled goodies, beer food, vegetables and three kinds of rice (garlic anchovy, java and plain rice). A set meal best served to a group of friends and family coming from an exhilarating surf session or coming back from a trek at Tangadan Falls in La Union.
In our Cube-O Salo-salo platter, we had Pakbet with really crunchy bagnet (crispy double-fried pork) on top, dinakdakan and fish fillet. The Binakol’s coconut-infused broth was flavorfully soothing. The tender stuffed squid has buttery goodness. They also had a really memorable Mangga sa bilo-bilo, flour balls and small pearl shake dessert with fruit bits in mango syrup.
