[Flavors of La Salle] Solomon's Guest House

rache Be Our Guest @ Solomon’s

Solomon Guest House-16
One of Malate's secret places is called Solomon's Guest House. It is the practicum restaurant of De La Salle - College of St. Benilde School of Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management. Only the creme dela creme of the batch are allowed to operate and run the restaurant for a particular term. Since it opened in May 2003 to the public, they now have 14 batches of students serving the Solomon Guest House. Batch-14's theme is Mediterranean Cuisine and Solomon's House Classics.

It is named after a De La Salle brother - Br. Solomon Nicholas Leclerq who was martyred during the French Revolution on September 2, 1792 and the first to be beatified among the La Sallian brothers on October 17, 1926. The Solomon Guest House is hidden along one of the side streets from the corner of De La Salle - College of St. Benilde Angelo King Building.

What we love about Solomon house is that you can eat their Parm Crusted Fish classic complete with presentation and ambiance for less than P100. Also, their paninis are sold for P65 only. The service is very good and the students are very professional. We love to bring our guests here. However, the Solomon House fails in comparison with all the other practicum restaurants that I have been to. That is sad because CSB's culinary arts has the highest tuition and they are on trimestral basis.

The actual house is small so they decided to have al fresco dining with umbrellas and tents because more and more people are going back to Solomon's Guest House.

We had a lunch meeting with Chef Garbs' CEO Lex Adasa and wife. This place is popular for meetings so you better reserve ahead of time.

Solomon Special Panini (P65). Only 65 bucks for this yummy treat! I'm going back to Solomon house just for this.

Chicken Pesto Linguini (P75).The pastas should be cooked al dente style and not let it be drowned in its sauce. Oh well, for P75 this is way better than a Jollibee meal.

Solomon Guest House-13
Parm Crusted Fish (P95). Pan-fried fish served with pesto pasta and side salad. They got the fish right and no wonder this is the best seller in the house. This is perfect for the lenten season if you happen to be in Malate area near La Salle.

Solomon Guest House-14
Choco-Lava Cake (P60). Chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream and strawberry sauce.

The desserts are a waste of calories but I must admit this is already the best within the De La Salle area.

Solomon Guest House-15
The Solomon Crepe (P60). Peach and blueberry crepe topped with heavy cream and chocolate.
