Try Every Restaurant in Robinsons Place (50) (see also TERRP)
Westwood is a Filipino food court stall. Almost exactly the same offerings as Casa Ilongga and Mr Pares.
The chicken inasal at Westwood was excellent. A leg-thigh quarter, lightly marinated in soy, partially grilled. Upon order – customer gets to choose the specific piece – the quarter was taken on a plate back into the kitchen, where it was chopped into smaller segments, basted in a tangy BBQ sauce, and cooked to completion. Beautifully seasoned, delightfully smoky, perfectly juicy. Good on its own or as a rice topping or maybe even as an ingredient in another dish (e.g., chicken curry). The first real hidden gem of TERRP.
