FRANCO’s is a casual comfort food reinvention of Myron’s by Mon and Monique Eugenio. The name is a loving tribute to their son, Franco.
We were going to have our power lunch meeting with Butz Bartolome, franchising guru for our Mercato business, so it was a good opportunity to try out the best of Franco’s!
Franco’s ambiance is casual with antique toy elements as highlights. The menu is carefully curated by Mon and Monique, retaining Myron’s favorites like the steaks, and adding new items like pizza and more pastry desserts.
This gourmet version of the sisig is very good. It is moist like the ones in Pampanga, with more meat than fat, and the meat itself is tender and yummy.
I like the idea of making this a long tender piece of meat soaked in its sauce. A good pulutan. 🙂
Simple lumpia that has more wrapper than contents inside. Ok to skip. 🙂
The salad serving was really small and the greens looked dry. 🙁
PIZZA & PASTA
I love their pizzas — very thin and firm — with generous toppings of chorizo and sweet onions.
I like the three cheese pizza with the right amount of cheese flavor, and not too filling.
Here’s a good healthy alternative if you are looking for a light lunch.
We ordered the Tall Horse Merlot from South Africa to pair with the meats in our main course. It was an easy red wine to drink with the meal.
This is one of their best-selling dishes. It’s good because they corn their own meat and serve this with generous servings of potatoes and vegetables. Sulit for its price, too!
If you are looking for a good steak, order their signature Angus Steak. Paolo’s Cut is good enough to share with 2-3 people. The meat is flavorful, tender, and with a good, firm bite.
Loved this, too! The risotto is cooked with just the right firmness, is not too creamy, and with balanced flavors.
If you love Callos, this is one of the best I’ve tasted. It has a yummy stew consistency and the meat they use is not malansa.
Another sinful treat with crispy meat and not-too-salty bagoong, balanced by the flavors of tomatoes.
This one is very good but not too original. Sometimes it’s nice to order something unique that would also be worth the calories.
Sinfully good sweet bread pudding with chocolate ice cream and caramel topping. 🙂
Dry and pathetic. Mon said they were going to replace this already.
This drink is inspired by Butter Beer in Harry Potter. Tastes like rootbeer float with Mantikado ice cream…yummy! 🙂
If you are going for merienda or for a light meal, order the Angus Beef Sisig, Salpicao, or Pizza.
If you are going for a full meal, the house specialties never fail. We like the Corned Beef, Paolo’s Cut for steak, Callos or Crispy Binagoongan with plain Rice, and the Mushroom Risotto.
For dessert, make sure to order the Old Fashioned Bread Pudding or Butter Brew. 🙂
Budget is about P500/head or P800/head if you are getting the steak.
Indeed, a great tribute to their son, Franco!
