If the rule above was implemented that day, I would surely have paid for everything. Haha. I was doing some research that time but I would surely have taken this challenge if I knew it sooner. I like this rule of theirs. With their “no phone challenge”, diners would get a free dessert if this is completed. Delicious conversations in exchange for that, well, sign me up for that please! 🙂
The place had ample seats inside with more seats outside. It did look very open and spacious all thanks to its very high ceiling. It felt very warm, relaxed and comfy that does intend to open up meaningful and heartfelt conversations.
Some of the dishes served above were recently launched February of this year. With the fusion of South American and Filipino dishes, let’s see the buzz behind these eats. 😛
This was a good starter. Its taste wasn’t as strong as I expected it to be but geared on being mildly acidic. I liked the mesh of flavors on this one.
Part of their new offers, this selection consisted of Chorizo Pamplona, Salchicon, Vela de Lomo and Chorizo de Bilbao. Included cured meats here definitely were select but it could get to a salty point. Best to pair this with some wine to balance the flavors out.
And this burned my tongue. Well, slightly burned it. We were told to eat this quickly as the cheese would coagulate. Being the excited and hungry person that I am, I instantly dipped that chip in and placed it on my mouth. Yes, it was all my fault but let me tell you, this was good. Despite my slightly burnt tongue, I wish I had more of this. It wasn’t overpoweringly cheesy.
Have it either coffee-crusted, herbed or just with a good old salt and pepper rub, steak lovers will surely enjoy this. Especially if they find out that Sobremesa has an unli-steak promo at PhP 750. Yep, unli-steak! It is a bit fatty but the flavor on this was pretty good.
And that is one big slice of a pork chop. Too big that it was tough to slice it. Paired with some yummy garlic mashed potato and caramelized onions, this new item had this good rub on the meat.
This was definitely my fave dish that day! I couldn’t explain the flavor but it was inexplicably good. I could just have this with a bowl of rice. The meat was tender that complemented with the slight sweet taste of the whole dish. This is definitely a must-try here.
Yummy! I would definitely say that this is the perfect sweet ending to all dishes here that day.
The last of the new dishes served that day was their Lecheroon. This was a fusion of leche flan and macaroon though to be honest, I prefer this fusion to stay separate. It just had this weird consistency which probably is the macaroon infusion there.
Though their new offers were good, I still liked their classic ones. Those for sure will not only get people talking but bonded too. As much as their conversations during lunch or dinner take centerstage, the dishes here really what makes those talks simply irresistable and delicious.
