Simple Lang, Ayala Triangle, Makati

When you’re so like gutom na, you better head to Simple Lang at Ayala Triangle Gardens in Makati. The restaurant is charmingly conyo; the good kind of conyo. Its modern twist on traditional Filipino dishes and its minimalist interiors scream simplicity yet no matter how hard they try, its sophistication couldn’t be concealed. It makes me think of the old rich. They don’t need to tell people they’re rich, people just know they are by the way they carry themselves – simple lang with class.

Sosy na Patis! Toyo na, Suka pa! 😀

High ceilings, bold colors, and elegant interiors.

My first time there was with a friend. At first, we thought we didn’t order enough for two, but we ended up having leftovers. I was just too happy with the chicken ass that I forgot to enjoy the dinakdakan, but it was also good – tender and spicy.

After a week, I was back there when one of my cousins from Iloilo visited. The place was jam-packed so we ended up being seated outside, but it was all cool.

Simple Lang’s tagline says it all – it’s good food simplified. They have taken traditional Filipino dishes a bar higher by refining them. It’s definitely a good addition to the rows of good restaurants at Ayala Triangle.
