Marciano's

Finally was able to try Marciano's at GB3 with friends last week.


Ambiance was pretty dark. But it definitely sets a calming mood. A long table was set for us beside the bar. It was easy to call on the attention of the waiters/waitresses, but it was a little bothersome to have them pass our table(from the kitchen) almost every 5 minutes.

We scanned their menu, and I must admit that the name of the dishes were amusing. Most of the dishes were named after famous 'stars' (sports, hollywood, etc).

For starters, we had the following soup:
-Robert de Niro Bacon & Asparagus Creme, Wild Over Wallstreet, Smoked Salmon & Dill.


The way the soup was served was nice.. The soup was tasty. I liked it at first, but after several spoonfuls, I wasn't that fond of it already. I dunno why. :P But the serving was big. I was soooo full after already. I should have shared 1 order with Arvic.

Then came the free appetizer. I wonder why it wasn't served before the soup..


The Sausage and Cheese Platter came next. I'm not really a fan of this one... but the caramelized almonds I liked! :)
Then came the pasta and the pizza...



I think one of those pizza is the Quattro Formaggio. Forgot what the other one was though. And because everyone was excited about the pasta, I wasn't able to take a decent pic of them. We did like all the pasta dishes. The
Joey's Tribbiani's Mac and Cheese, Tony Soprano's Seafood and Pesto and Woody's Wild Mushroom Linguini was a hit! We shall order them again next time. :)

Belle
told me that their servings and the taste of the pasta improved compared to the last time they went there to have dinner. So I guess that's 3 snaps for this place for continuing to improve their quality.. :)

CARPE DIEM!
I'm out.

Baguio Trip - Forest House (Part 1)

To those who tried to guess (see previous entry), we were at Forest House, Baguio City!


The place wasn't really part of our itinerary (if we even had one!). We just passed by this place while making a U-Turn back to Nevada Square because we wanted to grab some drinks at a random bar there. The place caught are eyes because it looked so homey and there were a number of cars parked around it. When we tried to ask for a parking slot the guard told us that it was a full-house and that they were entertaining reserved guests only for that night. This made us more curious about the place. So when we got home, we all decided that we'll reserve a table for the next night "just in case" we'd like to try it out.

As we were entering the place, I definitely knew we made the right choice to try it out.


It was evident what the theme was for the place. All-out Christmas-y!:) We opted to have dinner at the Veranda area to savor the cold Baguio breeze. Dinner food selection followed.…

KKK: Food Revolution

It's been some kind of 'tradition' or nakasanayan na to hear mass with the family on Sundays then eat out. It may be dinner or lunch. Depends if Mama and Papa will go home to the province on Sunday evening or not. But lately, since everyone seems to be busy with something, may be work(Me), school(the brother) or reunions(the parents), we end up hearing (anticipated) mass on Saturdays then unplanned lunch or dinners on Sundays.

So one fine Sunday, we found ourselves having lunch in a new place (new to us) at the side of SM Cubao. It was 'KKK'.


Browsing through their menu we found lots of food selections. Most of course are Filipino dishes. The interior and most of the decorations had a native touch to it.




I especially liked this piece made of recycled wine bottles


And this picture or wallpaper that showed some of our national heroes. I think that's Jose Rizal on the left  side.


Off to the food.

Lumpiang Shanghai - This was really good. Especially the sauce.
