I missed Lisa so much after our first ever meetup . I was thinking our next meetup would probably me having to go to Kuala Lumpur to be able to see her again (together with the rest of the #evurl girls).
I got a lovely surprise when I saw an FB message from my FB message box with the first line: "Nikkiii! Guess what? *jeng jeng jeng*" (sorry Lisa, I had to share this one-liner of yours as I find it too cute and it made my heart jump!)
The meetup happened again and it was meant to be as our schedules suddenly cleared up and we met on a lovely Saturday evening at The Stock Market, Bonifacio High Street. This meetup happened after my Blenz Coffee Experience by the way so you can just imagine how hyper I was considering it was a jampacked day for both me and Mr. AMW!
Here's what we had....
Celery and Pineapple Shake
This is similar to Flapjacks' Jack and the Beanstalk
It is indeed refreshing and a perfect drink for the health-conscious.
Chinois Chicken and Shrimp
Php395.00 (approx $9.00)
Succulent shrimp, grilled chicken bites over bed of mixed greens,
fried wanton skin in sesame mango vinaigrette dressing
Very unique textures in a salad! I like the crunchy fried wanton together with the succulent shrimp and the mix of sesame flavor with mangoes in a dressing bursts awesome, unique flavor inside my mouth.
Home Specialty Carbonara
Php420.00 (approx $9.55)
Vegetable fettuccine in cream base,
with prosciutto, mushroom and fresh organic egg yolk
This comment is definitely base on our personal preference but in our taste buds, this is the BEST Carbonara we've tried to date! It's not because of the fact that there's an egg yolk to it, but the creaminess is just right and it's not too thick or too watery! Will definitely come back for this!
Texan Barbecue Chicken
Php575.00 (approx $13.00)
48 hour marinated chicken grilled to perfection.
Served with skewered vegetables and rose herbed rice.
The Texan Barbecue Chicken is definitely a unique dish. It doesn't taste like the usual grilled chicken as the chicken is definitely marinated really well as I can taste the consistency of its flavors to the bones! :)
Cornmeal Bread Pudding
with Whiskey Caramel Sauce+ Ice Cream
The Cornmeal bread pudding is nothing special, best eaten with ice cream!
Flaming Caramelized Pineapple
Upside Down Cake
I can't seem to get the right name to this dessert as we were all surprised on how differently this looks as compared to the menu! This order also took the longest time so I don't really know what happened but this is too sweet for our taste!
Thanks Alex and Lisa for dinner...thanks for the friendship!
After the super tummy-filling meal, we actually head off to Midnight Mercato just to have a look! All of us wishes we weren't that full! We went for "take outs" though! :D
The Stock Market
