H Cuisine is a homey, casual restaurant by Chef Hannah Herrera-Bagatsing. It is best known for its signature dish called “Most Awesome Angus Beef Belly”. The resto is located along Scout Rallos, near the Tomas Morato area, found among the cute little establishments in between Tomassi and the Rub restaurants.

We celebrated Momsy’s birthday in this happy place in Quezon City. 🙂


H-Cuisine Main Menu and Desserts/Drinks

The well-lit yellow and blue motif works in keeping the ambiance alive and warm (reminds me of Stacy’s).

The first floor is not ideal for families with kids, though, because the area is not spacious enough. It has poor acoustics and the tables are on the flimsy side and can be easily moved by accident.


A nice portrait of Chef Hannah can be found by the stairs leading to the second floor. We do hope to meet her one of these days so we can take a photo of her with the three boys. 🙂


The second floor has round tables and seems to be designed for private functions. We feel that this is a more comfortable dining area.


Pumpkin Soup (P108 +10% service charge). Steaming hot, purely homemade and served with garlic bread.

We started with the Pumpkin Soup. The serving was certainly generous, and it tasted like it was made from scratch. I suggest you order this. 🙂


Broccoli Soup (P108 +10% service charge)Steaming hot, purely homemade and served with garlic bread.

 We ordered a second soup — the Cream of Broccoli. One thing we liked about it was that we tasted more of the broccoli rather than the cream. Thing is, the serving size was just half of the Pumpkin Soup that we first ordered.


★ Most Awesome Angus Beef Belly (P428 +10% service charge). Slow-roasted, fork-tender with demi-glace gravy. Sharing 2-3 pax without rice.

This Angus Beef Belly is really something to write home about. The beef was tender and had a slight charred finish. Together with the demi-glace gravy, this dish really hit it out of the ballpark. I now know why foodies are raving about this dish.

One thing I am not sure of, though, is whether we can call this the most awesome offering in the market. In my opinion, without the gravy, the meat itself might not be able to stand on its own.

(Have you tried this dish? What do you think?)


Osso Buco with Grape Relish (P388 +10% service charge)Oven-braised shanks, rich sauce, grapes in balsamic vinaigrette. Sharing 2-3 pax without rice.

We love Osso Buco. We have this tradition in the family that when we order bone marrow dishes, we try to see who can first scoop out the bone marrow, which amounts to 2-3 teaspoons. My Dad usually wins (or maybe we let him win 😉 ). The meat of this Osso Buco was also tender but the sauce lacked panache –I felt like it needed more grapes or something to make it more interesting.

Lengua Con Cetas (P278 +10% service charge). Ox tongue, white wine and brandied sauce, olives, button mushroom. Single with rice.

The lengua was nice (a safe order). Compared to the Angus Beef Belly and the Osso Buco, it didn’t look that appetizing. Maybe it should’ve been plated better.


Oven Braised Herbed Chicken (P188 +10% service charge). Juicy brown chicken meat, tomato, roasted garlic sauce.

The chicken tasted good with the roasted garlic sauce.

Teriyaki Glazed Milkfish Belly (P198 +10% service charge). Marinated prime cut fish, vegetables. Single with rice.

My mom liked her Milkfish Belly with the sweet teriyaki sauce.


Aidan was pleading for dessert after all the dishes that we had.


Decadent Chocolate Cake with Caramel Flood (P88/slice +10% service charge) with Cappuccino (P100).

When we read the word decadent, we ordered this cake immediately. Well, the chocolate cake was a bit dry and not the same as the other decadent chocolate cakes I’ve had before. To make it worth your while, pair it with the Nespresso coffee.


Blueberry Cheesecake (P88/slice +10% service charge).

The cheesecake was supposed to be the best seller but I would  pass on this one. It is not worth the calories.

I hope they can improve on these desserts or offer better sweet fare in the future.


Overall, if you like Angus Beef Belly and happy, saucy dishes, then try out H Cuisine. Just set aside a budget of P500/head.
