I made a reservation for two at 6 p.m. one Sunday and we got there a bit past 6 as traffic was a bit crazy in Quezon City.
We were greeted by one of the staff in butler outfit and assisted R with parking. When we step foot inside Lemuria, I was awed by the restaurant’s well tended garden and picturesque interiors.
We were the only diners when we arrived. It was like R reserved the whole place for us. <3
We were served some complimentary bread with butter and balsamic vinegar to start our meal.
There were two kinds of bread, both warm and fragrant. I liked the darker one with nuts as it was moist and way softer. The pale coloured bread was rather tough.
After a few minutes, we were given our first course, the Amuse Bouche, which is basically cherry tomato with cheese.
The serving size was too small for it to leave a lasting impression. I totally forgot about it when I slurped the next dish which was the Caramelized Cabbage Soup with Lardoons and Sour Cream.
The soup reminded me of some Chinese cabbage soup, only creamier and a tinge of sourness.
