No ordinary diner by Larry & Mau

MANILA, Philippines - It may well be the latest trend in diners. Comfort food presented from different parts of the world (believe it or not, you can taste Ireland and France here, aside from many others). There is a dash of sophistication in this place, although everything is priced comparably cheap. At Larry and Mau Diner, you will find that good gourmet food can be had at a more affordable price and, just as importantly,  24 hours a day. That means this joint can fill you up from breakfast to happy hour and beyond.

Case in point, Larry and Mau’s Smoked Boiled Bacon Taste of Ireland — a soup made of thick slabs of boiled smoked bacon with carrots, potatoes, and cabbage — is a true comfort, especially when the weather gets a bit chilly. And much to diners’ delight, an order of this already comes with a serving of rice.

If rice toppings are your kind of meal, then how about the beef bourguignon rice topping? There are also beef bulgogi and fish sambal for the more adventurous palate. But for those looking for something closer to home, there’s chicken teriyaki and then there’s the Pinoy pork adobo.

 Meanwhile, how about some more French fare? Larry and Mau presents the paillard or flattened meat. You can eat it as beef, pork or fish. Every order comes with corn and carrots, a choice or rice or fries, and your pick between the Pinoy steak sauce and tangy mustard sauce.  And if that’s not enough, Larry and Mau’s Diner offers all-time favorites that never fail.

Who can ever say no to roast chicken served with barbecue sauce? And how can one ever resist crispy fried pork ribs or Buffalo wings? Have these or go for the pasta classics. At Larry and Mau’s, you have a choice between carbonara, all-meat pomodoro and seafood marinara.

As any diner would, Larry and Mau’s also offers steak and sausage. And of course, there’s burger. This diner, however, packs a little more into what they call their super burger, a hefty creation made with a whole pound (that’s 2.2 kilos, in case you’re having a hard time imagining it) of beef with cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, and cheese. It is so big that a whole family of four can split this and call it a very hearty meal.

Meanwhile, dessert comes in three delightful forms. Larry and Mau Diner offers a mango mousse torte, chocolate mousse, and banoffee. 

If you want to make any hour a happy hour, the diner also serves classic cocktails such as margarita, mojito, sangria, and screwdriver by the glass or carafe.

So, fill up and discover diner comfort food the Larry and Mau way.
