It isn’t hard to feel right at home in the South—not when there are countless restaurants that specialize in a wide selection of comfort food. Expanding the area’s array of enticing eats with dishes hot and fresh from the oven is ‘Tus, a restaurant that’s a quick drive from East Bay Residences.
Away from the maddening mall crowd, ‘Tus serves classic cravings through clay pots and skillets, be it the house’s Spinach Lasagna packed with three kinds of cheese and your choice of alfredo or tomato sauce, or a shareable selection of sweets that includes a macaron ice cream sandwich and a caramel walnut cheesecake. You can almost imagine someone grandmotherly whipping up these specials from the kitchen, oven mitts and all. And just like in your favorite lola’s house, there’s at least one dish you’ll be coming back for. Ours is the Half-Baked Cookie, baked in a cazuela and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce.
Named after the Spanish word for “yours,” ‘Tus’s rustic, intimate setting feels like an extension of home, especially since pets are allowed on the kid-friendly premises. At this neighborhood joint or restaurant that’s soon to be a family favorite, the feeling of familiarity makes quite the delicious feast.
‘Tus is located at Westgate Center, Commerce Ave, Alabang, Muntinlupa, 1781 Metro Manila
East Bay Residences is located on East Service Road, Muntinlupa
