"At first I was so hesitant to enter the restaurant since I am intimidated with the set-up that it might be a costly store where expensive foods are served. Of course I can't afford expensive foods, I am into budget eating."

This was a very victorious mission because I have found a cheaper way to eat a big chicken with delicious spaghetti in a high-end restaurant. Compared to McDonald's Spaghetti with chicken that brought me into a mission failed in La Trinidad, Benguet at 106 pesos, Brother's Grill in San Fernando, La Union, Philippines have it in a more budget-friendly way.

The spaghetti offering was actually very plenty and I like how they prepared it with the Filipino flavor - the sweet and spicy spaghetti thing.

Aside from that, it was a combo meal with a big chicken. It was tummy satisfying I swear. For the budget, it is within our below 100 pesos (about 2 dollars) bracket at only 85 pesos compared to McDonald's 106 pesos of the same meal.

For those who are in La Union, this is the best alternative to McDonald's version since the restaurant isn't an ordinary one. Of course, there are "many" carenderias offering spaghetti and chicken for as low as 30 pesos for both but as I have said, this restaurant isn't your ordinary one. So for a high-end dining equipped with wi-fi and air-conditioning, the price is just right and what is nice here is that it is cheaper than McDonald's version of the same food.

What I loved with the chicken is that it is not very oily. I just can enjoy the crisp without worrying for the oils to spill out to my mouth while chewing the crispy skin.

The meal was actually huge that some customers nearby are talking about me (and I can hear them) that malakas akong kumain (I have a voracious appetite).

Well I didn't mind them and I don't care because I am a blogger and I will do anything, I will eat anything and go everywhere to make the best article for my readers. Those guys looking and talking against were just pathetic! It is none of their business whether I will eat it or not besides, I can afford to pay it (because it's cheap, hehe).

Brother's Grill is located along Gov. Luna St., San Fernando City, La Union. Outside the restaurant are clusters of not so good-looking shops so it was a surprise for me that I had to see a cozy restaurant in that area.

As I was touring San Fernando City downtown area, I have promised myself not go leave the city without being able to taste an affordable food until I saw Brother's Grill.

At first I was so hesitant to enter the restaurant since I am intimidated with the set-up that it might be a costly store where expensive foods are served. Of course I can't afford expensive foods, I am into budget eating.

Gladly, as I saw the list of food, Yay! There are affordable dishes and I also discovered the Halo-halo sa Buko in this restaurant.


Of course if I am entering into restaurants, I always see every detail like this one. I was also attracted with the hanging stuff out there. The restaurant gives you a privacy somehow when eating because there are dividers for each set of dining table and each corner has a hanging stuff with a light inside.

There you have eat. At 85 pesos, Mission accomplished!

22 [San Fernando] Brother's Grille: San Fernando, La Union

  1. Brother's Grill is cozy. It looks elegant and you might mistake that the foods sold there are too costly. I may have the same impression with you when I just saw the place in pictures. I believe Palagutom when you dare to come inside at BGs and you're misled with your first impression. Okay P, enjoy eating!

  6. "Well I didn't mind them and I don't care because I am a blogger and I will do anything, I will eat anything and go everywhere to make the best article for my readers. " - I just love this, srsly. <3

    Anyways, that's really cheap or I may say the price is affordable for a large serving of spaghetti and a tasty chicken. I also like fried chicken which isn't oily, but sorta juicy. :-/

    If I would be visiting La Union next year, I'll ask my dad to have a visit at Brother's Grille.

  19. Is this by any chance a partner of Andok's? Parang I saw Andok's chicken logo in the wall.

    It's good to know that there are good alternatives out there. Nakakasawa rin na lagi na lang Jollibee and McDonald's.
