When I told my new found friends in Zamboanga, Chuck and Almin, that my friend, Gino, is having his birthday, they suggested for us to celebrate and dine at Mano-Mano sa Greenfield [Mano-Mano in Greenfield]. There are actually two branches, the other one is found in Paseo del Mar but they told us that the ambiance at the original branch was better.
Sinful crispy pata
Chandelier made of shells
Man-made mini waterfalls inside
So we took a tricycle and went there. We actually found the place the night before Gino's birthday but it was about to close so we opted to go to another restaurant. On the next day after our city tour, we went back and loved the Filipino feel inside.

The interiors made of bamboo, aquarium, aviary, chandeliers made of shells and the man-made mini waterfalls made us feel at home, might be because of its nature/tropical feel with all the green colors we see around. They have several specialties of the house and just like the other restaurants in Zamboanga, which I loved most here, is that their servings in platter is more than enough for us to consume.
We chose the all time fave crispy pata, Filipino platter (bits of the Filipino cuisines in our country), and bangus. Aside from those there are other seafood and Filipino cuisines available.

If I were to go back to Zamboanga again, I'd never miss to visit this place to have a sumptuous and at the same time of good value.
