1... 2... 3... Hold on. I can only see 10 tables. What happened to the 11th? Oh well.
I have always wanted to visit this place ever since I got an email about it from Leslie Go. It is just a few steps away from my place but every time I pass by, the place is closed. And two years later, I found out why. They are open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., closed from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. and resumes from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m..
N arrived late that day and I was really famished. We decided to order the Chorizo Cheese Fondue (PHP420) and the Seafood Bourguignonne (PHP880) without much thought to it. And we didn't regret.
The Chorizo Cheese Fondue was served warm and it was so stretchy that it made it difficult for us not to make a mess. I always end up getting too much cheese as I had to keep on wrapping the stretchy cheese on my broccoli, carrots or potatoes. (I skipped the bread.)
The cheese though was flavorful though not as tangy as I wanted it to be. Perhaps the chorizo's flavor was a bit too strong.
The Seafood Bourguignonne was not how I expected it to be. I didn't know that we had to cook the seafood and dip it in one of the following--miso, wasabi or mustard. I had an impression that I would be enjoying more cheese. Nonetheless, it was still great as the server was the one who cooked the food for us. (I really do not like to be the one grilling or cooking my food when I eat out.)
I got all the salmon as N isn't so fond of it. (And that was good for me!) I was stuffed with the salmon alone. Though for PHP880, I think the serving was a tad stingy. Then again, it was a different way of enjoying these dishes.
It was definitely an interesting experience though I might just go for dessert next time.
