A dinner in The Goose Station.
I am sure that a lot of us saw Chef Rob Pengson show off his culinary expertise on television a few years back. We were all awed and moaning awwww and ahhhh's with his offerings. I believe this started the move of having cooking shows back on the air with Filipino Chefs at the helm. His popularity and his ingenuity led to the creation of one of the best restaurant in Manila. The Goose Station, tucked in an almost deserted part of the Fort, its ambiance and its service brings the romantic feel to foodies all over the metro. It lets one try out a lot of its offerings through its degustation menu.
I will be honest in saying that a meal here would cost an arm and a leg for us normal folks. Thankfully 3 years plus into the future, I found myself at a cross roads.
It was a few weeks ago when I saw an incredible deal on a local coupon site. The deal was a bit expensive still but what the heck. Since this particular restaurant rarely gives off discounts or promos, I quickly took the chance and was able to purchase a few for my family. After a few hours on the block, the coupons went from a few hundred to zero fast.
So on a faithful Saturday night, I found myself entering a foodie heaven.
I was pretty much excited to try their degustation offering.
|We entered and were escorted to an empty table|
|Yeah that is butter... on a cold rock.|
|Honey Glazed and Focacia|
|Trio of Bruschette (L-R Chicken Liver, Chickpea, Salmon)|
|Egg and sweet potato|
|The egg yolk was between runny and semi solid. It was amazingly not over cooked.|
|Intermezzo = TIME OUT FOR OUR PALETE|
|Scallops and Carrots|
|Foie Gras Taho|
|Ube on top!!!|
Everything was of incredible quality and was way past the standard. Although each of the servings were only miniscule, I could honestly say that I was full after the meal. This is a classic example of small + small + small + small = busog moment. The meal started at around past 6pm and ended a few minutes past 8pm. So for almost 2 hours, our taste buds were tantalized and we were in heaven. I could honestly say that I would remember this meal for a long time.
