The first time I ate in the Quezon City place... I was excited since I heard about the madaluyong resto. The food was somewhat a letdown except for the wagyu salpicao. The desserts did not save the experience. At another time, a reservation for lunch was made over the phone and confirmed by their staff. When our group arrived, it... More

This has one of the nicest decors I've seen in a restaurant. We ordered grilled chicken salad and spicy gambas with fries, both are good. The others we ordered, black paella, grilled salmon and dory with fries needs improvement: lacks flavor, needs seasoning, too salty, respectively. The food is hit or miss so you better have an idea what to... More

We were actually on our way to Mario's when I saw The Frazzled Cook along the same road. Remembering how I used to pass by their now-closed resto near Shaw, and intrigued by their name, I decided to try it out. We ordered the garlic cheese stacks for starters. My mom, during the course of eating, pulled out a strand... More

I loved the wagyu salpicao and the truffle pasta. The wagyu salpicao was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. I can come back for this. They spared no expense in the truffle pasta because you could readily smell the truffle. The potato canape was a big let down though. Stay away from this starter! I felt that starter was very pretentious. They should improve... More

The Frazzled Cook restaurant, which used to be located in Mandaluyong, has moved to the Tomas Morato area, specifically along Scout Gandia street. Since we live near the area, we decided to try it out. The place had ample parking space and the interior is eclectic - mismatched tables and chairs. Even lighting was mismatched. We ordered the sizzling squid... More

This weird little restaurant with its antique-shop/junkshop decor is a must-do. It is hard to find on a narrow little one-way street and the waiters lack confidence and skill but the atmosphere and food make it really worthwhile. I loved the sizzling squid and the ribs. It is really a sort of euro-american homestyle cuisine but done in a fresh... More

This is a place like no other. The ambiance is just so cozy one can quickly feel right at home. Maybe this is due to their random furniture and yellow light that creates this little house of delight. Food is great, whatever you order is great! I love their iced tea and their signature pizza where you drizzle it with... More

This restaurant tucked in a one-way side street near Shaw Boulevard serves some really great dishes that makes you want to come back for more. Ambience is very homey with eclectic furnitures. Parking is available within the restaurant compound. We wanted to eat at an early time to avoid the rush of Father's Day revellers and this restaurant came up... More

I love Frazzled Cook to bits! I will definitely eat here over and over again! Salpicao was lala-love and so was the pumpkin soup. :) Must admit it's a bit pricey but I love the place and the food! :)

I had a chance to taste this restaurant after a reccomendation from a good friend. The place was cozy with chairs that are totally different somewhat like a clean but antique furniture shop. We ordered spicy chicken kabab, spicy lamb kabab, squid salad and the rib eye steak. Food was presented well but for its price it was pricey. Rib... More
