About a year or 2 ago, my family and I chanced upon this small restaurant along Blue Ridge, Katipunan. It had sushis, pastas, pizzas and dessert. What more could I ask for? I became a regular, bringing my friends to dine here. Sadly though, it closed and recently moved to the Fort.
Fast forward to last night, my friend Ms. K asked me to go out with her to have some dinner. Being the good friend that I am, I (
|Red Garlic Signature Roll (495 Php)|
|One Big Bite|
|Florence (369 Php)|
We also had the Florence. This pasta is what I called carbonara with truffle sauce. At first, there wasn't any hint of truffle. When I got a portion of it, it smelled and tasted truffle. It was yummy! It was worth it. The serving was good for 2-3 persons.
|Trio Pizza (659 Php)|
For more carbs, we ordered a pizza. We really couldn't decide so we had 3 pizza in one. We chose the cinco de mayo (5 cheese pizza) , Torre del Greco, and Baja Taco pizza. The cheese was gooey and had the right flavors. The Torre had fresh greens and was not that heavy. As for the Taco pizza, well it tasted like tacos.
I had mixed feelings about the service. It was actually fine from the start and middle part. Water was replenished constantly. The food came out quick and hot. I guess they botched up the last part when I asked for the bill. It actually took more than 20 minutes and 3 follow ups for the bill to arrive. When it did, it was hand written on a piece of paper. Apparently, they still didn't have the automatic registers working. Worst, the bill was added all wrong. We were overcharged by around 600 pesos. I had to send it back to have it changed.
I think I can forgive them for this. The food tasted great. The pricing was on the high end side. Maybe I will go back but not until they fix and tweak their operations.
