Since it’s Thursday, time for a throwback post! Okay, I just missed out on this entry which truly deserves to be posted.
Hello, Crimson Resort and Spa Mactan! (Whew, that’s a mouthful!)
It was quite a trip from Bantayan Island to Crimson, Mactan. It took us roughly 4 hours just to go back to Cebu City and another 40 minutes or so to Mactan. We were weary from the hot ferry ride and crowded bus trip. And we were famished too since we skipped lunch. But this made us look forward to our stay. True enough, we were so delighted to see our room and the spacious bathroom (which was 6 times bigger than the bathroom in Kota Beach, Bantayan Island).
After freshening up a bit, we decided to head down to the beach area but sadly, it was already closed. So we just took a quick dip in the crowded pool (there was a Korean-Chinese event during our stay and the resort was PACKED).
While lounging, our tummies reminded us that we haven’t had a meal since 10am. And since it was happy hour, R and I ordered Mango Shake (I recall it was around PHP150 per glass) and a plate of Tuna Tataki (PHP220).
The mango shake was sour. Perhaps it was no longer in season. We also noticed the shortage of buko in the island. Bananas too! We heard that a huge company bought most of these fruits hence the shortage.
The Tuna Tataki was noteworthy though. The seared black pepper crusted tuna loin was so delectable. And I didn’t mind dipping it in the spicy Gochujang miso sauce. I also enjoyed the herring roe. Oh looooove.~~~ <3
I will definitely try the other dishes on my next visit to Crimson Mactan.
