Weekend Food Tripping at: Marciano's

Happy Sunday!  Weekend food tripping is back I was at Greenbelt that time for a meetup and Mr. AMW was on leave that day so we went for an advance Anniversary celebration at Marciano's.  Marciano's is from the same makers of John and Yoko so I'm expecting to have the familiar taste I get from their line of restaurants.

The interior is very comfortable to look at, the ambiance is perfect for a date, family gatherings and bonding with friends!  I'll share to you what we had...

Spinach Artichokes and Mushroom Dip
Php249.00 (approx $5.80)
It was a good decision for me to choose this as our appetizer!  Love the super crunchy bread and the spinach and mushrooms blended with mozzarella cheese tastes wonderful!  MUST TRY!
Robert De Niro Bacon and Asparagus Creme
Php128.00 (approx $2.98)
I can't get over the wonderful Clam Chowder soup I had at Flapjacks a month ago so I'm hoping to try another soup that would make me go "gaga" over again!  The Bacon and Asparagus Creme soup from Marciano's did not fail!  I am amazed on how the tiny hint of bacon and asparagus blended well together with the right creaminess!  I will definitely come back for more!

Astoria Pork Medallions
Php308.00 (approx $7.16)
4 medallion-sized pork wrapped on a bacon drizzled on a sweet sauce. It looks a bit dry at one glance but it was unwrapping of Christmas present when I took a bite!  For a dish that isn't as "sauce-y" as I want it to be, the flavor gets trapped inside the pork and its very tender and flavorful!  We had the rest for take out and it still tastes consistently good at home!

Corleone Italian Sausage
Php288.00 (approx $6.70)
Mr. AMW likes sausage and this one is no exception.  He always talks about the wonderful sausage dish from a restaurant at Wilson Street which was closed down and we gave this a try to see if it passed his expectation!

It actually did, the serving is quite small though but the Italian sausage were drizzled with a good amount of Olive Oil which blended well with the "smokiness" of the sausage.  Green and red peppers with onions are companions with the dish.

Grilled Salmon in Caper Sauce
Php378.00 (approx $8.79)
Out of all the wonderful dishes I've tried.  This is my least favorite because of the strong "fishy" taste of salmon.  I actually enjoyed eating this after I dipped the salmon on my Bacon and Asparagus Creme soup.  Personally opinion!

Harlem BBQ Chicken Pizza
Php358.00 (approx $8.30)
I actually asked the waitress for their best selling pizzas and I was given the choice of Harlem BBQ Chicken Pizza and All-Meat Pizza.  We've decided to go for a "unique" pizza.

The Harlem BBQ Chicken Pizza is thin-crusted pizza obviously freshly made upon order!  I like the tiny hint of BBQ chicken underneath the cheese, I get surprised bites every now and then because judging by the way it looks, it looks bland and lacks ingredients but its actually very flavorful.

I would appreciate it if they can make this even crunchier!

Blueberry Cheesecake
Php158.00 (approx $3.67)
I am very picky with my cheesecakes, not all cheesecakes can give me the goosebumps and the last good cheesecake I had was from Bistro Miyake RestoBar.

Plating/Presentation = CHECK!  

Taste?  Uhm, unfortunately, it didn't impress me at all!  The blueberry cheesecake at Marciano's is a bit too "chewy" for my taste, I like my cheesecake a bit soft and creamy.

Overall, I had a lovely time dining at Marciano's and thank goodness the dishes doesn't taste similar to Sumo Sam, John and Yoko or other restaurants that was owned by the same group of people.

The service is really good!  The restaurant accepts cash and credit card payments and an additional service charge will be added to your total bill.
