Netizens are taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on whether four upscale restaurants are worth paying the price for good food.
The restaurants discussed by foodies were: Dean & Deluca, BCN by Las Flores, Nono’s, and Wildflour.
The debate started when a Twitter account claimed that the brands were all fluff, adding that the quality of food doesn’t match the prices on the menu.
“Mahal na nga, ang tabang pa. Magsara na kayo,” the tweet read.
Others echoed the thought.
My wildflour story: If not for my sister telling me I was eating an expensive cake, I would think it's a cake from our community bakery. Even the packaging is not worth the money. 🥲 https://t.co/xE9DyZshez

What a juicy topic. I think Wildflour isn't super sulit unless you buy bread on sale. I think, if you go to a pricey resto, you should know what's the most sulit dish to order para sulit. Ijo Bakery/Uniqo would give all these restos a run for their money. https://t.co/pMTv4UcSlg

I am a fan of Wildflour especially yung mga pastries and yes I agree mahal sya
DEAN & DELUCA and NoNos okay okay naman at medyo reasonable namn for a resto.
HOWEVER, LasFlores group (BCN) oo yan ang matabang 100% agree at mahal including RUMBA 😐 https://t.co/5VN8xlqM5Z

had dinner with my hs bffs at bcn last year and we got so traumatized with the bill after 🤣 we promised to never eat there ever again
overpriced + super small servings and their paella tasted saks lang 🙃 https://t.co/ZPYT1DBcZF

It appears that Nono’s, owned by Chef Baba Ibazeta Benedicto, have a sizeable online following.
im sorry but im a nono’s apologist 😭 i think it’s decently priced too compared to the other restos sa pic?
not a fan of wildflour’s entrées but their pastries are a good buy pag gabi na kasi sale hahaha but pag full price i prefer my viennoiseries elsewhere https://t.co/4m4MPqrf6v

Amid the heated debate, some level headed netizens have advised keyboard warriors to just stay away from the restaurants if they find the prices too steep.
