Huma Mediterranean Cuisine
2/F, S Maison, Conrad Manila, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay

We've known about this restaurant for quite some time now but wasn't eager to try it since I'm not really into Mediterranean cuisine (haven't tried it, actually) and we found it too pricey. But then we had no other options (running out of options, rather) so we finally gave in.

We were so excited since we've seen photos of the restaurant and fell in love with it (you'll see).

We arrived the restaurant, went in and chose our spot. We were amazed that there is a veranda outside with the view of the sea! The place is huge! Compared to all other restaurants in S Maison? This is really huge. There weren't a lot of customers that time (I think only 3-4 tables, including us).

We ordered the hummus, the supreme tabliyah and the kafta banadoura.

Hummus P180


My first ever hummus! It was served with their bread. I found this weird. It had a little spice and a little sour taste, but it was bland in its entirety. (Although my friends told me that it's supposed to be like that).

Supreme Tabliyah P650

The Lebanese pizza. I liked this one. It was beef and chicken shawarma on top of a pizza dough and then you can put some dressing on top. I liked the combination of the flavors. It worked for me.

The Kafta Banadoura was just some meatballs topped with thinly, mojo-like-sliced (but not how mojo tastes like and how it was cooked) potatoes and tomatoes. This came with a plate of basmati rice. I liked the meatballs since these were flavorful, but not the basmati rice. It tasted old for me 128514 Although I think that's really the taste of basmati rice.

Service was good. Servers were friendly and attentive. Pricing isn't cheap. Some of the items on their physical menu were even more expensive than the menu we found online. Serving size was normal. It wasn't a lot and not little, although it's most likely to be few than plenty 128514

What I was most amused about this place is the ambiance 128525 Also, as mentioned, portions weren't that big yet we felt so full after our meal (we didn't even finish our pizza).
There was no service charge as well. Total bill we paid was P1,450 and there were 3 of us. I guess this is a place for those who are really willing to spend, or for those who are celebrating special occasions.

There's always a first time for everything, and I'm glad I got to try this one. Although I admit that I'm still not a fan of Mediterranean cuisine, I think I'm going to keep trying out Mediterranean dishes to really appreciate its unique taste.

My score:
Pricing – 3/5
Service – 4/5
 Ambiance – 5/5  

     Taste – 3/5
