Thursday, March 4


Over the weekend I had dinner with the Graus (Arvic's family) because it was his Dad's birthday. Dinner was at Rastro along Burgos Circle.

It was our first time to have dinner in that place and I really liked the ambiance and feel of that place.

Off to the food... Because it was our first time to try the place out, we asked for the food recommendation from the waiter and went for it.

Calamares Frito P180.00
Squid rings, dipped in batter, deep fried to a crisp

This was really really good. Crispy but not rubbery. The added lemon pinch was a feast for our tastebuds.

Oyster Pancetta P240.00
Baked oyster with bacon and Parmesan toppings

Really fresh! (according to Nana and Tita), I'm not an expert on oysters, but if they liked it then it must have been really good.

Salpicao P250.00
Beef tenderloin sauteed in garlic and olive oil

Loved this! It was tender and really tasty. I just wish they had a bigger serving of this.

Paella ala Catalana P850.00
Allow 45 min., chefs specialty, saffron rice with mussels, clams,
shrimps, chicken and pork

This was the highlight of the night indeed. :)

The dessert was another thing.. I'll have it posted next. Give the place a try. It's definitely worth it. :) Try to reserve ahead if you can.

i love paella (especially with large prawns); but my wife isn't fond of it. good thing is, she lets me eat what i want and i'm mutual with her of course.

everything does look sumptuous, except for the oyster [i don't eat oyster]!

I've been craving for paella and baked oysters for a long time already. Hindi ko ganong type yung lasa ng paella na available dito. Although masarap din naman. Normally, baked mussels ang sineserve dito.
