First Bite: Ebeneezers

Checking looloo has been part of my daily routine for months now. I get to discover new restaurants through the app. It is making me fat and poor but happy. And just last night, I went to this new restaurant by the brilliant minds behind Lulu (now Catch) and Hooch.

Hello, Ebeneezers!
I have read a few reviews about this place and all are positive. Food's not that expensive so it definitely caught my attention. And when R and I walked home from Melo's one night, I made a mental note to visit this place soon. And I did last night.
I never noticed this place to be beside Shangri-La at Fort. It must be because of the chaotic view of construction. But if you're walking towards Burgos Circle, it's hard to miss this place with its neon signage.
Since I was still stuffed with my heavy lunch, I just opted to get Ebeneezer's Mezze (PHP188) and a glass of Rose Cooler (PHP150). 
Service was quick and my meal was served in less than 5 minutes. 
The Mezze was served on a take out box with foil lining. One order comes with grilled pita (which I asked to be soft), marinated olives, roasted eggplant baba ghanoush and hummus
The pita pieces were still a bit crunchy on the sides which was okay as it helped me pick the rather oily olives. 
The hummus had a very light taste with a slight rough texture. I wished it has a bit more flavor. The marinated olives were salty but it was balanced by the bland pita. My favorite was the baba ghanoush which had the same texture as hummus but more flavorful. 
I was hesitant to order Rose Cooler as it was a bit pricey at PHP150. But I didn't want my walk to go to waste. Since I was running out of tummy space, I got this drink which was recommended by one of the servers.
It had a refreshing fizz with a light taste of mint and lemon. I couldn't really taste anything floral so I'm guessing the word "rose" is to just define or describe the drink's color. 
Overall, it was a good meal. I'll definitely visit and try the shawarma next. 
Note: I just hope that they do something with their washroom. It was so stinky and eating a few steps away from it could kill a big appetite. Please save our appetite, Ebeneezers. 

Ebeneezers is located at Ground Floor, Net Quad Building, 30th Street corner 4th Avenue, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig.
