As the name suggests, Luncheonette is a casual place for a quick, short lunch. The menu subsumes from breakfast-all-day items and comfort food favorites -from corned beef hash, spam and eggs and pancakes to hot sandwiches, like Reuben and Patty Melt, which basically is the love child of a burger and a grilled cheese, making you question how you went this far in life without it.
Yesterday, I went home so stuffed after sampling some items on the Luncheonette’s menu; the Luncheonette Burger, Patty Melt, Jake’s Hot Chicken and Loaded Fries were my yesterday’s concluding fare, rolling my snacks and dinner in one meal.
The Luncheonette Burger is 5 1/2 ounce patty made with USDA Angus Chuck & Beef Brisket served on toasted ABC sesame bun with lettuse, tomato, onion, pickles and Luncheonette’s special sauce. Ordered bacon and egg add ons to make it even more delicious! (Price:295PhP + 55PhP Bacon add-on + 25PhP Fried Egg add-on)
Jake’s Hot Chicken. Chicken brined in buttermilk and Luncheonette’s special blend of spices, served on a toasted ABC bun with creamy coleslaw, blue ranch and very spicy hot rub. (Price:215Php)
Loaded Fries – three cheeses, fried egg, jalapeno &mustard mayo with your choice of spam, corned beef or bacon. Yum! (Price: 295PhP)
Founder of Abaca Group Jason Hyatt shares, “This is what I grew up on. Luncheonette’s menu items are everything that can be cooked on a griddle or fryer.” He continues, “It’s slow food cooked fast,” stressing the fact that the service may be speedy , but your food will still be carefully prepared and made only with premium ingredients, staying true to what the Abaca Group brand is about.
Luncheonette intimately accommodates 16 guests, with interiors pulled out from a setting of an American diner in the 40’s or 50’s with its bar stool seating and industrial overhead fluorescent lighting painted in a retro shade of mint green, all configured around an open kitchen where your orders are coming from, fresh and piping hot.
