Restaurant Review: Lou-is Restaurant

Located in Balanga City, Lou-is Restaurant caters to both individual and group customers as in entities or organizations who wants to hold seminars and have their meals during or after the event.

The restaurant is actually known for its specialty which is “Kare-Kare”, a traditional Filipino ox tail stew in a peanut-based sauce. Well, if it’s especially your first time to eat kare-kare, you would find that the sauce and the “bago-ong” (condiment made from fermented fish or shrimp and salt) is what makes the dish tick.

And I say this “first time” because although founded on the same basics, the recipe itself would vary from person to person. Nonetheless, in the case of Lou-is, the flavor would be generally okay for most people.

Hmm… anyway, if the food is “fair”, the restaurant itself needs improvement particularly on its lay-out and design – it’s just too bare or boring to some extent. For one, it’s like more of a conference hall than a restaurant.. not to mention that one could overhear an on-going seminar which sorts of removes the customers’ privacy; more so, there is this lack of staff when an event is currently being held as well. Then again, for the latter issue, this could be solved by a good “waitering” system.

Finally, as for Lou-is’ location.. this is about 2-3 hours away from Manila; so, for those nearer or within the province, yes, it may not be in the heart of the city but it is accessible to those who wish to have a different dining experience.

And why not? The parking space is also good.
