Mati’s Meat and Bread is located at River Park Alabang, at the back of Festival Mall. Mati’s is also under Melo’s Steak group. We were able to talk to one of the owners, Mr. Paul Macasaet. Of course, we had to ask the origin of the rstaurant’s name. It seemed that Mati is his son who’s also present that afternoon. Talk about a lucky kid!
I was really excited to try their mouthwatering dishes. If you stack their page, you’ll see those fod porn shots that will definitely tickle your tummy. Here are some (maybe a lot) of the dishes we tried that afternoon:
The Salpicao Pizza is my second favorite among the pizzas that were served. It was savory and had prominent beef bits that makes it a good dish to order.
Meats, specifically steak, is Mati’s Meat and Bread’s specialty. Their steak selection is the affordable version of Melo’s Steaks. Melo’s offers high grade quality and good variety of meat for their steaks while at Mati’s, you still get a good quality (but limited choices) of steak without making your wallet suffer.It was
This is the standard affordable steak meal you can order. Approximately 400php for a steak is definitely a good deal for me. Not to mention that since they are under the Melo’s group, their steaks are also prepared as good as them. I can certainly indulge in my steak craving any moment that I like because of Mati’s.
You can also request that you cook your own steak. They’ll set up a grill pan in your table and you may cook your steak the way you like it, medium rare, medium done and well done. Because we were busy snapping photos of the sizzling steak, the USDA Steak became well done.
If you don’t know how to determine if your steak is already ready for medium rare or overly cooked for well done, you can ask one of their staff to cook it in your table. Personally, I like my steak soft and juicy so I opt for medium rare. But don’t worry, well done is fine because Mati’s have the best quality of meat so no worries on rubbery or hard steak.
Mati’s Meat and Bread have a limited selection of desserts. Let me tell you their desserts are quite simple but will definitely curb your sweet tooth after a fantastic steak meal.
