Food never fails to make me smile. Whenever I feel down, I eat. (Sometimes a lot.) And last week, R was not in his best mood so I figured food could make him smile. Or grin.
Hello, Black Olive!
It has been a while since my last visit but nothing much has changed.
I also ordered an apple flavored iced tea and it was… so-so.
We got there around 7 p.m. so it wasn’t packed with hungry yuppies just yet. R got the Black Fettuccini (PHP510) while I chose the Risotto Verde (PHP605). We also got Black Olive’s Barbeque Pork Riblets (PHP280).
R’s Black Fettuccini was also good though a bit too salty for my taste. R drizzled lemon juice over the pasta which made it more interesting. I enjoyed the bit of soft shell crab R gave me.
The serving of my risotto dish was generous but there was one problem… it was too salty! I had a hard time finishing my order as it was very salty. I guess if I want to try it again, I have to inform them to put less salt.

Overall, the appetizer was a winner, the pasta was pretty good and the risotto made me sad. But I will be back! Black Olive’s pork riblets and porchetta are good for me not to visit again.
