Country Grandma’s Home Cooking: The Most Delicious Pineapple Pie In the World

Country Grandma’s Home Cooking 
The Most Delicious Pineapple Pie In the World 

 Used to be known as Clementine’s, one of the oldest
and one of the most esteemed restaurants in Naga City
was renamed as Country Grandma’s Home Cooking. 

It was an ideal move as Clemen, may have turned
technically into an endearing grandmother to hundreds
of students, after decades of serving them delicious food,
being a long time Ateneo de Naga’s cafeteria operator.

This is also my family’s favorite restaurant
as we feel at home whenever we dine here,
as the restaurant had a homey ambiance.

Fresh fruit juices are a must try in this restaurant
and one would never go wrong with their 100%
freshly squeezed Orange Juice. The kids love it.

We ordered Spicy Wings for appetizer that had a
sweetish- tangy taste and it was so delicious. The
serving was huge and if it would come an extra rice,
I believe this dish good enough as a main meal.

We also had fish and chips as an extra appetizer
but they ran out  of chips so it was served as
Fish and Fries. With the thick- cut fries as a
side dish, my wife decided to make it her dinner.

It was served with tomato catsup and tartar sauce.
We always order this dish whenever we dine here as
this is the closest version to the iconic Bondi Beach
Fish and Chips that we can get in the Naga City.

My son had a Pork Chop that came as huge slab of
delicious, tender and perfectly browned fried pork.

My daughter’s T- Bone Steak was juicy, tender and
bathed with savory mushroom sauce. This is one of
Clemen’s specialties and a must try in this restaurant.

I had a Fish Cordon Blue. This is an  awesome twist 
as they replaced  the pork with fish. A much healthier 
alternative and interestingly, it tasted even a lot better.

We also ordered  a Classic Macaroni Salad. I have gotten used to the 
usual  tangy, creamy and cheesy version and this one was the  sour, spicy
 type with  a mild chili- like aftertaste. It tasted like a cheese  pimiento. 
I found it odd. It is something that I would not order again  in the future.

The Pineapple Pie was divine. It was glutinously
chewy and just had the right degree of sweetness.
We have been dining in this restaurant for a very long
time and this was the first time that we discovered
that they serve the most delicious pie in the world.

Dining in Country Grandma’s Home Cooking is never
complete without visiting their ‘swap meet’ type surplus
store that had a lot of gorgeous European décors on display.

We would always end up bringing home
several items which could be a downside,

…as they cost more than the price of a dinner for a
family of four, but these swap meet goodies are rare.

One would be saving more buying them here, as there’s no
need to travel to Europe to buy similar gorgeous home decors. 

As an after thought, we actually come to this restaurant to regularly check 
if there are new arrivals on display .We time it on our routine weekend 
family dinners as we can shop relaxed  while dining in homey comfort.
