The 80s inspired billiard and booze place had me in nostalgia – the ambiance of Polaris Billiards and Booze reminded me so much of the 80s and 90s Tagalog films back in the days. Now, I figured it would be best to rekindle and re-rouse the ertswhile times. Located along Mapa Street in downtown Iloilo, Polaris is a destination of choice for Ilonggos seeking solace, a felt tipped stick cue, and billiard table.
On my return, I ordered the classic Kiss Shot Burger, made from 100% meat. The Kiss Shot Burger, at Php 58, holds a very significant purpose in the Polaris menu. For every purchase of the ‘specialty of the house’ burger, proceeds go to the children supported by the Good Samaritan Volunteer Service, a group providing aid to the Pediatric Ward of West Visayas Medical Center in Mandurriao.
I also ordered Buttered Chicken which is just plain irresistible. Polaris serves all natural – herbs and spices, homemade special sauce, and pure meat. Rooting from the need to prepare hypoallergenic food for the family, the owner has learned to remove preservatives, MSG, and the like from her recipes.
