it's been more than a year since we got together. g and m arranged this whole dinner thing which is something new since i am usually the master planner. anyway, m has been a regular at this place so she practically ordered everything she liked.
we want something light, so we had the house salad. i liked this salad, it has walnuts, grapes, blue cheese, greens and a raspberry vinaigrette. i usually don't like blue cheese but this one is a creamy mild flavored cheese which just worked well. too bad the serving was small - a tiny plate that is.
we also had the broiled cheese and garlic prawns. it's crab fat pasta with veggies topped with prawns. the pasta was creamy but i wasn't able to capture the crab fat essence so to speak. the prawns were humongous so you get a lot of shimp meat. for almost 800PHP a pop, i'd have second thoughts ordering this dish. actually, if the pasta would have been bigger in serving then it would have just been perfect.
another of m's fave is the baby back ribs served with a honey bourbon sauce and corn and veggies on the side. i'd say this is the best ribs among the once i've tried in the past month or so. tender but not that meaty, the sauce was perfectly balanced with the tart, sweet and salty hints of flavors but of course i would love to have the smoky hint too. i like that the corn was freshly shredded from the cob.
it was a pleasurable dining experience. no misses. the only drawback i saw were the prices. but i am definitely coming back because i have yet to try the other menu items.
