We had our dinner (at Crisostomo, Fairview Ayala Terraces branch) for my mom’s despedida as she will go abroad next week. Why here at Crisostomo? Because I surely believe that she will miss and will crave for Filipino cuisine when she goes abroad. :) How thoughful I am, right? haha :) :p
Tiago’s Triumph: Oysters with Spinach and Bacon.
My mom doesn’t really pay too much attention when it comes to seafoods. She likes meat and veggies a lot. Among 8 pcs of Oysters, she only tried 1 and my tita got 2 pcs and the rest were of course, mine! I have chosen this for my own craving satifaction anyway. hahah. #SelfishMe
Kapitan Valentin: Suateed vegetable chopsuey with Coconut Meat.
We have seafood and we have vegetable to make it an equal meal. Well, mixed veggies so what do you expect? Plus it has Coconut meat, quail eggs and a little of chopped squids.
Sinigang ni Eva: Pork Sinigang with native vegetables and Watermelon.
Who would ever imagine that Watermelon can be added to a Sinigang dish? Taste weird?… NO! It still tastes like the normal ’ Sinigang sa Sampalok ‘. It tastes so good. The soup just became red because of the watermelon, but it is still a sinigang. Truly delicious.
Tinapa ni Tiburcio: Tinapa and Salted Egg wrapped in Crispy Lumpia Wrapper
A somehow similar to ’ lumpiang shanghai ‘, however it is tinapa and salted egg. Well, too salty because the two ingredients are already salty, but there’s a vinegar with onion and garlic to dip. So it just compliments each other. By the way, it was actually 6 pcs per order. I wonder who took the first 3 pcs. hahaha..
And for our drinks, a pitcher of Melon juice satisfied our hungry stomach…
Crisostomo. Filipinos know him to be the protagonist in Jose Rizal’s novels, Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo. Restaurant that offers an authentic Filipino cuisine served with a sophisticated twist. (http://www.crisostomo.ph/)
