It was an awful day for me when I heard the news. I needed to cut back on a lot of things so to cheer me up, my mom and brother brought me to Tomas Morato for a quick late lunch. We really didn't have any place in mind so we led ourselves to CERCHIO.
The place was almost deserted with just 2-3 tables occupied as the lunch service was coming to an end. Good thing the good people in the restaurant allowed us to get in there and have our grub.
To start things off, we got the LEMONADE and the COOL as CUCUMBER.
The lemonade was really sour while the Cucumber drink was refreshing although a bit too sweet for me.
Since, I was trying to go healthy, I started the meal with an order of pumpkin soup. It was pretty much affordable as it was only less than a hundred and yet the serving size was good for 2-3 persons. Totally bung for buck.
We also had their take on CEASAR SALAD. A bit of a let down if you ask me. Seeing the cheese itself wasn't that appetizing. It was that powdery type of cheese you get off the shelf. It would have been better if it was grated kind.
I believe one of CERCHIO's best seller would be their take on the SISIG.
Basically 3 cups of sisig and eggs on top. It was oily to say the least. Too greasy for my taste and it lacks that crunch one would look for in sisig.
Another so-so dish is the GARLIC PASTA. I wasn't really pleased with this dish,
The garlic taste was lacking. To say it bluntly, the flavor was mild. The addition of the powder cheese wasn't welcomed also.
The most impressive dish we had was the PERI-PERI CHICKEN. The chicken meat was moist and properly marinated. The flavor went all in and I love the smokey feel it gave.
Although the dishes are really affordable, i don't know if we just came on a bad time, but I wasn't really that impressed. There were some ups and downs with the meal but definitely it would be a great place for one to just chill and relax. The service was sometimes there and at times it wasn't. I would suggest you ask for candles as there were fliers left and right. Parking is available infront and budget around 300-400 Php per person.
