5 Reasons Why You Need to Dine out in Joliant Restaurant

By Mhownai - April 16, 2019

Joliant Restaurant is a Filipino- Contemporary Family Restaurant located in BF Homes, Parañaque. My partner and I were invited last weekend to try and taste their cuisines and to be honest, we were thrilled to have a taste in their local cuisines. Not to mention, their restaurant's location is quite near to where Jerico leaves and since I do not go to South often, I've been dying to try different restaurants located there.

Joliant Restaurant has been in the business for over 12 years with a common goal- to make the people happy as per their name "Joliant" which derives from the word 'jolly'.

Now, I'll be diving in the 5 reasons why you need to try out their fabulous family restaurant:

1. Location and ambiance was PERFECT

To be honest, the restaurant isn't found in Waze or Grab, however, their landmark (Nuat Thai) can be found that's why we were able to ride a Grab to arrive there. The restaurant was seen easily upon arriving at our destination since there is a huge name of their restaurant there, plus, it's a corner lot so their location is easily visible.

Upon entering their restaurant, I immediately noticed how well lit the restaurant. In fact, we need to pull down some covers to take good photos with proper exposure because it's too bright. The place was so roomy with a numerous number of tables, chair, and couches so if the place will be full of people, I don't think people would feel crowded or irritable since just like I told you - there's room for everyone.

2. Their dishes were made to perfection

During our stay, we were served with two (2) appetizers, seven (7) main course, and one (1) dessert.

For starters, we were served with Nachos and Chicken Skin. I was in awe of these dishes. The salsa was not so tangy in my liking, the nachos, although taste quite normal, nothing fancy but it works really well with the salsa dip but, I much prefer the Chicken Skin. I have been a huge fan of Chicken Skins and I  always love to buy them on streets, however, Joliant's chicken skin was very tasty, it is not pure chicken since I can taste some fat in it but the cherry on top was a buttery flavor on the Chicken Skin itself. It's not too salty or bland, it's just right the dip was quite spicy for my liking but still,  you can enjoy a lovely Chicken Skin with or without dipping it into their vinegar dipping.

Nachos: 175 pesos
Chicken Skin: 120 pesos
Next was the viands, I was so amazed by how big the serving was. To be honest, it cannot be consumed by 2 people, I think it can be consumed by a maximum of 4 people. My favorite was the Patatim, the Buttered Chicken, Pinaputok na Tilapia and Chopseuy. The Patatim was very sweet and the meat was really juicy, tasty and it just melts into my mouth. The Buttered Chicken was very buttery (of course) the flavor sinks into the chicken's skin and the gravy works really well with it. The Pinaputok na Tilapia was a first for me and the owner and chef mentioned that it was Joliant was the very first one to concept a dish like this. It was smokey, savory and the flesh was very juicy. Chopseuy's flavor was so delighting, you can really taste the sauce inside the vegetables. However, the chopseuy's ingredients were cut too big from what I have accustomed, still, I'm impressed by the dish.

Patatim: 500 pesos
Buttered Chicken: 280 pesos

Pinaputok na Tilapia: 220 pesos

Chopsuey: 220 pesos
My least favorite would be the Spicy Garlic Chicken, the Kare-kare and the Sinigang sa Miso (Tanigue) for the reason that, first, I am not a huge fan of spicy dishes and the Spicy Garlic Chicken and the Bagoong Alamang of Kare-kare was just over my league. I even ate a chunk of chili which made me panic because I don't know what to do or what to drink. I just wish that they were able to adjust the spiciness depending on their customer's liking. The Sinigang sa Miso, on one hand, was just not my cup of tea, don't get me wrong, the taste of their Sinigang was so good, it's not too sour and it's not bland at all but it's my own personal preference-- I'm just not fond of fish soup and I don't know why. 

Spicy Chicken Garlic: 280 pesos
Kare-kare: 260 pesos
Sinigang sa Miso (Tanigue): 280 pesos
3. Prices don't cost you much with the number of their servings

As you can see per caption of the photos, the price is very affordable, it's good to feed for four (4) people, just like what I have mentioned a while back, you will feel food coma right after you consumed their products. With the price as well, the taste was just mouthwatering, as you can see from what I have mentioned above, it is worth a try. What's good about this is that they have 'discounts' and 'barkada meals' available for you and your friends most especially if you want to let off steam. Plus, you can also order liquor and enjoy live band music if you want to let off steam from the heavy workload of stress from the office or at home.

4. Their servers were so nice and accommodating

As soon as we arrive at their restaurant, we were greeted lively by their guard, furthermore, their servers were so helpful in constantly providing what we need (food, napkins, straws or utensils) plus they are courteous, they tend to ask questions regarding if we needed anything from them. They were smiling during our stay they gave me a pleasant feeling of belongingness and that they live by the name of their restaurant- jolly.

5. Bonding, chill, they got it all for you

Joliant Restaurant in BF Homes has a function room that is perfect for an intimate family gathering. Their function rooms can cater 30 pax and have a sound system that people can take advantage of such as karaoke or playing some lively music to brighten the mood. If I'm not mistaken, they do have 5 branches all over the Metro and 4 of them cater a function room, however, I'm just quite unsure regarding the specific branches but I will surely let you know once I got the full details. 

Furthermore, they do have live bands in the evening which is a perfect way to chill with your friends or family over a bucket of beer.
