Dulcelin Gourmet Specialties

Ultimate Taste Test Event-31

US Angus Beef Shortribs with Red Wine and Port Sauce (P1,300 per kg). Slow-cooked for 2 days, this dish has incredibly tender beef that is sure to please. It was indeed super tender and yummy.

Dulcelin is best known for its Mango Torte, which is in head-to-head competition with Tony Cuervo's Mango Torte in Makati. But in the recent Ultimate Taste Test Event, they got an overall rating of 4.6 out of 5.0 for their gourmet dishes. Basically, all the people were raving about the Beef Short Ribs, the Wagyu Tri-Tip or the Pork Belly or the Red Rice with Seared Tuna.

This comment from one of the foodies sums up the Dulcelin Gourmet experience:

"From the salad, to the ribs, wagyu and pork -- blew me away!!"

Thanks to Ricky Morelos for the awesome food experience. :)

Ultimate Taste Test Event-29
American Kobe Tri-tip (P1,500 per kg). Tender and bursting with beef flavor. Served with Japanese Steak sauce or Gravy.

I got introduced to the often-ignored and less expensive beef cut, which is the tri-tip. It is a small triangular muscle from the bottom sirloin beef cut. This is one of the most flavorful beef cuts. 

US Wagyu is known to be soft but not flavorful, but the tri-tip solves that problem. :)

Ultimate Taste Test Event-30
Hickory Smoked Pork Belly with Barbecue Sauce 2kg (P1,500).

The Pork Belly was equally good! Dulcelin Gourmet sure knows how to cook its meat aside from baking good desserts. :)

Red Rice Salad (P1,600/ 10-12 persons). A Korean-style paella with seared tuna slices, shrimp and shredded lettuce.

This one is a bit spicy. A small plate of the red rice with the seared tuna is already a complete meal. The dishes are perfect for potluck parties or if you have a celebration at home. :)

Strawberry Cake (P1,000- 10.in, P550- 6in). Unbelievably delicious personal favorite of many -- bountiful strawberries cover this chiffon cake.

My wife's personal favorite is the Strawberry cake. It is a very soft chiffon cake with strawberries and a layer of peanut brittle in the middle. It is not too sweet and you don't get tired of the sweetness of the icing. We will order this next time when we celebrate someone's birthday.

Dulcelin Gourmet is the overall winner of the First Ultimate Taste Test Event. Unfortunately, they don't cater. You have to order and pick the food up from their Quezon City base. They should open a home garden restaurant in Quezon City -- I guarantee that it would be a hit. :)
