Can you tell I did nothing over the weekend but eat? I hope I’m not making you too hungry but I have to tell you about this awesome place, The Old Spaghetti House. Let’s just say it made my spaghetti and meatballs dreams come true. 😀
The Look: You know that place where you would want to meet a long lost friend or maybe your best friend coming home from a stint abroad? That is the kind of warm comfort and nostalgia that the wooden and vintage interior of The Old Spaghetti House evokes. Even with the clutter of forks and spoons and the occasional laughter from the next table, you will feel right at home.
The Food: On the road to Marquee Mall, My Man and Chicken Pi were discussing what was the ‘old’ in The Old Spaghetti House. It was our first time to eat there and we really did not know what to expect. My Man said the spaghetti might be old and we better brace ourselves.
Fortunately, the ‘old’ in The Old Spaghetti House delivers as they served me the perfect plate of spaghetti, the noodles wearing the fresh, earthy, and warm sauce like a coat. The meatballs were moist, flavorful, and very tasty. My only complain was that I wished it had more cheese.
Chicken Pi has lasagna and I stole a forkful and found it was too rich and creamy. But it wasn’t salty. I don’t think a single person can eat that lasagna serving or it was too decadent. If you love lasagna and you want to try it, maybe you can split it with another to avoid the over the top sensation.
Usually, My Man and I get different plates but this time, he opted to have what I was having for he was too dehydrated to think and he was not happy with his spaghetti like me. Turns out, the boyfriend wanted his spaghetti sweet and spicy the way Filipinos cook it. I won’t argue with him but my plate still made me very happy. I’m coming back!
Chicken Pi also wanted to eat dessert, but I learned that in restaurants where desserts are not part of the specialty, it is best to just make a pass. But she wanted to try the chocolate truffle cheesecake I think and it was this slice of cake with a very dense and fudgy filling. I cannot say I loved it because it was almost overkill too. I’d rather eat the vanilla ice cream on top.
The Edge: If you want to eat good Italian style spaghetti and meatballs, go to the Old Spaghetti House and have a bite for me too!

I also like The Old Spaghetti House but because of the memories of dining there more than the nice food. Especially the branch in Robinson’s Pioneer, I’m not sure if it’s still around.
i was thinking about you earlier! ang galing naman napick up mo yata ang vibes ko so you came along. i really thought tosh is a very nostalgic place. it has that aura about it.
Pesto! Three times palang ako nakakain sa TOSH and I ordered pesto pasta every single time. Pesto! 😀
i haven’t tried the pesto pasta but i will once i return! i do have the tendency to eat the same thing sa isang lugar. apir!
Kahit saan ako, when I see pesto pasta, yun agad order ko. Except nalang pag may kare kare. 😆
i’m not a big fan of kare-kare but i like the one from ikabud.
hi long time no hear. i’m back (only at worth a thousand words). i remember seeing this restaurant before in cubao and always wanted to eat there.
my mission for years now is to eat the perfect spaghetti – not the pinoy version. so far unsuccessful kc naman each time i go to an italian resto they don’t have spag w/ meatballs, ano ba yan?
hi, you’re back! i love this spaghetti – really nice. the meatballs are good. i enjoyed my plate so much. 🙂 it must be frustrating going to an italian resto only to find out they don’t serve spaghetti and meatballs. how is that even legal?
bilang sa kamay ang beses ng pagkain ko sa OSH. pero okay naman . ang hilig kong i-try na i-order pag ganyang klase ng resto ay pesto pasta. medyo hindi ko gusto ang timpla nila masyadong matapang. ang gusto ko kanila ay lasagna rin.
ganun ba, dito ako lang ang may gusto ng pesto, ayaw nila eh. okay lang siguro at least hindi nila kakalbuhin yung basil ko. 😀 hindi ko masyadong feel yung lasagna nila, para sakin it’s too rich pero si chicken pi at my man nag enjoy naman.
ay walang ganito sa GenSan >.<
dito din sa eksaktong lugar ko wala. out of town pa pero okay lang masarap naman eh!
di ko pa na-try dyan
pahiram ng discount card mo
wala akong discount card. ikaw na lang kumuha tapos ako ang peramin mo!
Reblogged this on Phantom Jazzboi.
cool. now there would be more people to get hungry. 😆
i miss TOSH; we used to go to their branches in qc.
here in my area there is no tosh too if i want to eat there again i have to go the neighboring province pa!
But you can ask for more cheese. 🙂 It’s one of our favorite places.
thanks for the buzz, liz. i’d do that once i return!
Luckily, there’s TOSH near my place. I’m with you on the look – nostalgic.
i found the place really cute. we even got a photo with the lovely vintage wall behind us.
.. i saw one of their branch at forum robinson’s in pioneer pero di pa ako nakakakain dyan.
subukan mo minsan, masarap 😀
love tosh…. The rates are relatively affordable or reasonable. I also tried their Thai bagoong pizza/pasta… except some of its appetizers are a bit oily 🙂
naisip ko nga next time yung pizza naman eh. ganun ba, sige iiwasan ko na lang yang mga appetizers nila. gano kalaki ang servings ng appetizers nila pala?
correct ka dyan. old spaghetti house gives you that warm, homey fueling. 🙂
naisip ko nga ayain sila don domeng doon minsan pero saka na yun pag natikman ko na yung meat dishes at nasarapan ako. 😀
gusto ko rin yung filipino style spaghetti, pero kapag nagluto na si kumander ng spaghetti, italian style kasi, napapakain na rin ako.. hindi pa ako nakakakain jan kahit ilang beses ko ng dinadaanan yan sa mall at sa dati kong work place… at pahabol.. NOMNOMNOMNOMNOM!!!
basta masarap na spaghetti kahit anong style ayos na yun! big spaghetti fan ako.
ikaw na si hetty spaghetti!
hindi maputi yun eh… tsaka yellow yung buhok 😀
so ikaw morena at red ang hair?
hindi mas hawig ko si jollibee 😆
kala ko si twirly ang kamukha mo… hihihi
naisip ko si grimace eh mcdo nga pala yun 😆
iilan lang naman ang mascot ng mcdo.. pero mas gusto ko si hamburgler kung mascot ng macdo ang paguusapan.. ehehehehe
ay wala na akong kilala maliban kay mcdo at grimace!
booo!! di mo kilala si birdie at ang fry kids?!?!?! but why?!?!?!
birdie? so ibig sabihin pag may mcdo party nakikipaglaro ang mga bata kay birdie?
uu!! hindi masaya kapag hindi nilaro ng mga bata si birdie… teka.. parang mali ata ang pagkakasabi ko.. isa pa… masayang kalaro si birdie… teka.. mali uli… gustong gusto talaga ng mga bata si birdie.. ang pangit lalo.. ahh basta yung manok na mascot ng mcdo pangalan ay birdie… yun!
si pot talaga basta mga birdie ang daming nasasabi.
i love animals kasi!! pet lover ako.. i love birds, i love puppies, i love pussy cats!! saka BIRDIE talaga pangalan nung mascot ng mcdo <– with emphasis…
defensive si kuya, teka 😉
uyy hindi ah.. nagpapaliwanag lang…. hihihi
sa senado ka magpaliwanag! 😀
ayoko!! may plagiarist dun.. hihihi…
baka gayahin nila yung kaway kaway mo 😆
kailangan ko na pala siyang ipa-patent… magulat na lang ako baka yung ibang mga senador eh mag *kaway kaway* hihihi…
oo, sabi sayo eh.
tama ka.. tama ka.. sige.. gagawin ko yan sa susunod kong post!!
basta icurse mo ng maganda para umepekto!
uu… eto nga at nagbabasa na ako ng “cursing : for dummies”
o? bakit di ko nakita yan sa book store. sayang!
palagay ko nga. 😀
Got a crazy story at TOSH. 2 years ago, my room mate and i went shopping at MOA and then we ate there. I ordered bolognese and my friend ordered the oriental pasta something, when they served their food there were little things moving on the side of the plate. being the big reclamador that i am, i ask the waiter what were those and they just told me that they were fruit flies. fruit flies who get attracted with the chandelier like thing on top of the table, hahaha. 😀
gladly, the waiter took my plate and bring it to the kitchen. Did they give me another plate? Hell no, they just remove the part where it has the flies part. 😀
I still love the food at TOSH, though. 😀
sana tinanong mo edible ba ang fruit flies? 😆
Edible naman siya. haha. kinain ko na. LOL
great job. we’re no wusses here. 😛
Matagal na since I last ate in TOSH. I agree with you, ok ang spaghetti and meatball nila. Bila tuloy ako nagutom saktong lunch na here. =)
kumaen ka sa tosh, pat tapos idedicate mo sakin. 😉
penge pangkain hehehe! =)
wag na mag diet naman tayo 😀
ano ba ito, “long lost fried or maybe your best friend “, = long lost fried chicken or maybe your best fried chicken? hehehe. gandang pag-ngiti.
haha naprito na ang kaibigan 😆
