Breakfast at Angels' Kitchen

Angels' Kitchen is one of Greenhills' dining gems. Having been around before all the quirky food trends and social media hypes, this place is known to serve straightforward, no-frills, homey dishes. And we decided to try its breakfast dishes one Wednesday morning.

Hello, Angels' Kitchen.
Bright and clean was my first impression of Angels' Kitchen as soon as I stepped inside the restaurant with its minimalist interiors, paper table covers, and simple silverware.
We were instantly handed the breakfast menu as soon as we settled down. We ordered Wagyu Beef Tapa (PHP448), Garlicky Skinless Longaniza (PHP388), and Baked Bangus Tinapa (PHP398). All breakfast meals come with a complimentary cup of Caffe Lungo or orange juice. R's mom said though that the orange juice tends to be watered down so everyone went for coffee. I was feeling very acidic so I settled for Buko Shake (PHP118).
We noticed that the service was very slow. While other dishes were served within 30 to 40 minutes, mine was served after an hour from ordering. And the place wasn't even half full.
R's skinless longganisa was close to a deconstructed one. We noticed that it was quite oily so we made sure to enjoy it with lots of rice. I liked that it was indeed packed with garlic flavor and went well with everything on the plate. Best to drizzle it with some vinegar to avoid the dish from being too cloying.
I wanted to get Wagyu Beef Tapa too but they only had enough for one order. And I was second to order that. But I managed to get a piece from R's sister, S. It was good, though I prefer my tapa to have a more defined sweet and sour flavor which Angels' Kitchen's version lacked. (I still like my mom's version best.)
My Baked Bangus Tinapa was pretty good too. It was a bit on the salty side but balanced by the tomato and onion bits and the scrambled egg on the side.
We also had Banana Cream Pie (PHP238), Mango Cream Pie (PHP238) and Rustic Apple Pie (PHP258) for dessert. And it still took the staff about 20 minutes to serve it.
I'm a bit biased with Mango Cream Pie as I loved another restaurant's version best. The Banana Cream Pie though was good as it had that nice harmonious blend of cream, banana and chocolate flavors. 
I liked the apple pie the least. But I've never really been fond of apple pie so I'm not the best person to ask about Angels' Kitchen's take on this classic dessert.
Angels' Kitchen's dishes are priced at the higher end of the spectrum and it made me expect a lot. However, I found the food to be average and service very slow. I hope that the service gets improved as there was barely any other guests when we visited. It would be great too if they add more selection to their breakfast menu or serve some dishes with garlic rice. 

Angels' Kitchen is located at 57 Connecticut Street, Greenhills, San Juan City.
