Colors of Christmas: A Feast at Museum Cafe and Kabila Greenbelt

December 1, 2014 in Casual Dining, Filipino by eugene

Tried a new set menu designed to celebrate the holiday season with a lauriat / family-style dining at Museum Cafe and Kabila Greenbelt showcasing their signature dishes and some new ones made for the upcoming festivities. Just in time for the parties and gatherings for the month, they’re offering some set menu for 6 – 10 people. It’s been a long time since I tried food here and it was definitely a fun experience rediscovering old favorites and being treated to new ones as well.

My personal favorites from the stuff that we tried are unsurprisingly all of meat base – the gorgeous Kabila Porchetta, Grilled Chicken Inasal and the hearty and very flavorful Chorizo Callos.

Kouign Amann by Cicou – Fantastic Dessert Creations that Will Blow Your Mind!

November 26, 2014 in Bakery and Café, dessert, french by eugene

Kouign Amann are desserts made in food heaven, the first time I tried this delectable sweet tooth treat was at a degustation, where I met Chef Cyrille Soenen of Impressions and Brasserie Cicou in Greenhills, during that dinner we tried the classic and the chocolate version of their kouign amann and I’m telling you it was love at first bite. It was just these layers of butter, flaky pastry and sugar the base was just fantastic! Reminded me of a really good croissant / puff pastry but only more rich and decadent it’s really a treat. I’ve been wanting to go to their restaurant in Greenhills for quite some time but failed since I don’t usually go to that area but I’ve been craving for it since. So imagine my happiness and excitement when they launch this new pastry shop that sells kouign amann and its many permutations! Went there right away to treat myself a box – which I devoured in one seating after I took pictures of them for the feature. :D

Back at Mad for Pizza: For Party Trays and More Beef Belly Goodness

November 25, 2014 in American, Casual Dining by eugene

Went back to Mad For Pizza at Il Terrazzo Mall along Tomas Morato to pick up and try some of their party trays, it’s definitely that time of year when we celebrate a number of parties and gatherings with a various group of friends and colleagues and I decided to pick up something here and have a quick lunch before the celebrations.

Party trays good for 20 people, decided to get a platter of their Spaghetti Bolognese, those beautiful strips of their Chicken Crispers and some Disco Fries. Of course a visit at this place wouldn’t be complete without me munching on my favorite beef belly with adobo glaze and rice pilaf.
