Wicked Kitchen's Gluttony Dessert

 

Wicked Kitchen-10

My first impression of Wicked Kitchen is that it is a restaurant that specializes in spicy cuisine. Apparently, that was not the case. For them, "wicked" is a slang word for superlatives such as wonderful, awesome, splendid, masterful, cool, impressive, excellent, fine, superb, outstanding, terrific, fantastic, fabulous and brilliant.

It is a two-storey small cafe/ bar hangout at the back of ABS-CBN. You have to be patient with the wicked traffic around the Mother Ignacia area and with the limited parking space. It is a nice place if you are within the area but I would not recommend going all the way from Makati just to eat there.

A Taste of Baja in Manila?

Baja Mexican Cantina

Carne Asad Burrito (P255 +10%SC). Marinated Beef, Onions, Cilantro, Guacamole.

 

Manila is experiencing another round of Mexican Craze with Baja Mexican Cantina. It is the latest Mexican Resto to open in Greenbelt 3. It is getting disappointing reviews during its soft opening but people are willing to try and give it a second chance.

 

The promise of Baja is to serve authentic Mexican food like what you would enjoy in Baja, Mexico. Take the Burritos for example. The Carne Asad Burrito is served with just beef and vegetables wrapped in 7in. soft tortilla. The most frequently asked questions are: "Where are the rice and beans in the burrito?" and "Is this really how they serve it in Baja?"

Ravioli Fresh Pasta in Food Court

Ravioli-7

Chorizo & Tomato Ravioli (P130)

When you are in Robinsons Galleria, don't miss eating at Ravioli in the Food Court. Ravioli is the latest food court stall that serves fresh pasta, following the successful formula of Chef Arbeli in Megamall.

We love the Chorizo & Tomato Ravioli! We don't like going to Galleria because of the ugly parking but Ravioli made our trip there worthwhile. :)

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. :)
