After a bout of errands at SM East Ortigas, we decided to have merienda here. (Note: For some reason, getting a table at the burger joint at the next stall was taking too long despite the empty seats. Go figure.)
We ordered items that Razon’s of Guagua is famous for: Halo-Halo (Php85 for the junior size) and Pancit Luglog (Php118 for the single size). The halo-halo is notable for its simplicity: just the sweetened saba bananas, macapuno and leche flan, all flavors that we grew up with as our household pahimagas (dessert). As for the pancit, I found its portion size too small given its price.
Fortunately, we also ordered Dinuguan with Puto (Php170) and Pritong Lumpiang Toge (Php35) so we were at least able to sate our hunger.
Food took quite a while getting to our table, and, while the service staff were accommodating, there were no efforts to anticipate our needs or queries.
All in all, other than the halo-halo, there is no compelling reason to return here.
