A quick bite for a taste of home.

Muffin House and Manila Connexion are one and the same, providing both Filipino and Indonesian dishes. Filipino cuisine served are those with Spanish influence with a unique Philippine twist.

Favorite meals are what’s considered to be breakfast and midnight meals:

  1. Tapsilog (Tapa, Sinangag, Itlog) Beef Tapa, Garlic Fried Rice, Fried Egg
  2. Longsilog (Longganisa, Sinangag, Itlog) Chicken Sausage, Garlic Fried Rice, Fried Egg/li>
  3. Chicken Inasal (Chicken marinated and cooked with herbs and spices from Bacolod

Though the venue is small, the layout is measured and provides an intimate cozy interior.

For my merienda (afternoon meal), what I had was Bihon Guisado (glass noodle)

• 1/2 kilo rice stick noodles (bihon)
• 1 medium sized chicken breast, boiled & shredded
• 3 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 large onion, minced
• 1 small cabbage, shredded
• 2 cups chicken broth
• 1 medium carrot, julienned
• 1 celery stalk, sliced thinly
• 4 tablespoon cooking oil
• 1/2 cup soy sauce
• 1 cup uncooked shrimps, shelled and de-veined (optional)
• Salt and pepper to taste

Check it out at FX Lifestyle Center in Jakarta. Ask the taxi driver to take you there. Then ask the security guard for direction. Then pay for my bill.

Quick!
