Mr. Pares – The Newest Pares House in Timog Avenue!

Mr. Pares is in the heart of Timog Avenue, Quezon City, along Mother Ignacia. It is the latest sensation in town, offering a favorite Filipino comfort food with a twist. Since opening in January 2024, Mr. Pares has become known for its delicious signature dish, Pares – a tasty beef stew, perfect for hangovers and gloomy weather. The Pares House stands out for its delicious food and its dedication to making every customer have a great dining experience. The eatery boasts a spacious interior capable of accommodating up to 50 diners at a time. Whether you’re eating solo or dining with a group, there’s ample space to enjoy your meal in a relaxed atmosphere. I was surprised that they also have generous parking spaces that can accommodate approximately 10 vehicles. For a non-commuter like me, it’s a huge relief not having to drive around and find a spot nearby.

With over 300 orders served daily, Mr. Pares has earned its reputation as a culinary hotspot in Quezon City. They are also recently gaining fame on social media, with personalities featuring their delicious signature dish. A lot of first-time customers are returning for more, drawn back by the irresistible flavors of their Pares offerings. This savory beef stew, simmered to perfection in a rich, flavorful sauce, is served with garlic fried rice and a choice of Bulalo-style or Kanto-style soup. The difference between the two soup bases is their consistency. Kanto Style is thicker and Bulalo Style is watery, catering to different preferences. In addition, they also offer an array of tempting options, including Pares Bagnet, Pares Chicharon Bulaklak, and Mr. Overload. Each dish is served with unlimited rice and soup, a complimentary drink, and a boiled egg, all at prices ranging from Php 110 to Php 250.

My Experience

We arrived at Mr. Pares during Lunchtime, around noon. I did not expect to find a long queue upon arrival but it didn’t make us feel frustrated. Although we had to wait in line for about 15 minutes, we can see that they are taking orders quickly. Their system for taking dine-in and take-out orders, paying, and getting extra rice and drinks was organized. I ordered their Mr. Overload for Php 250. It includes Pares with bone-marrow, chicharon bulaklak, and pata. If you’re a heavy eater, you can eat the whole thing alone but the generous serving can cater to two. I came in with no expectations, but my first spoon of Pares and rice was remarkable! The Kanto-style broth was rich and flavorful, especially with calamansi. The meat was also juicy and tender, unlike other Pares that I’ve tried before that are chewy.

Some of my friends made the most of the unlimited rice and asked for more. If I wasn’t watching my diet, I would’ve too! Out of all the Pares that I’ve tried, this one sits in my number 1 spot. Since it’s somehow far from where I lived, I also ordered one more Mr. Overload and one classic to go. We reheated and shared with my family at home. The taste and quality pay way more than worth its price! You should give it a try! Furthermore, the dining space is spacious and airy, well-ventilated with electric wall fans.
