Today is a very sad day for me.
One of my ultimate eating, shopping, and traveling companion has left 6 am awhile ago.
KD is going away for one whole year with little chances of coming back for a visit. She said we could meet up in Japan on June because she's going there for a conference. I want to but I'm not sure if my wallet can send me there.
She's going to Washington to finish her Ph.D. Program. I feel so depressed..
Anyway, all the girls gathered together for a despidida or going away party for KD.
3 special guests joined us that evening and Kiel brought a bottle of Spanish Wine. I feel the wine was pretty good because we left the restaurant without it.
It was my first time to try Lolo Dad's Brasserie at 6750 Makati. I tried the Quirino branch once or twice before and I found it ok. I don't frequent the place as much as I want to because of fear. My Achi ( eldest sister ) might have gotten food poison from the oysters she ate there with her hubby last year. This was never proven but the thing was, they had dinner there the night before their USA Trip. Everyone panicked during the unfortunate event. Since it was a long overdue vacation for them, they made themselves go to ER and had the doctors put Dextrose on them so that they'd feel well enough to travel the next day.
Anyway we shared the following items:
DAIRYLESS TOMATO AND ROASTED GARLIC SOUP P290
Fresh Goat's cheese and Basil crouton. KD had this. I wasn't able to taste it because I was busy chowing the other food. KD was able to finished the entire bowl so I guess it was good.
WARM SPINACH AND SAUTEED MUSHROOM SALAD P480
With Feta, Roasted Garlic-Smoked bacon vinaigrette. Pretty tasty. I would have loved it more if they used baby spinach instead of old ones.
MUSHROOM CANNELLONI BAKED W/ RACLETTE CHEESE P580
With Potato and Mango club. The dish was too salty for us.
SMOKED SALMON AND BLUE CHEESE CREAM P420
A winning dish. We all loved this.
PIZZA LAMB SHAWARMA P470
Rolled roast Lamb Pizza with cucumber, tomatoes, onions, served with yoghurt and chili sauce. I was reluctant to try this because of the chili sauce in it but the pizza was not spicy at all. There were a few tough lamb pieces but overall this was a good order.
CHOCOLATE ALMOND SEGAFREDO P320
With orange popsicle and berry sauce. The chocolate almonds were TO DIE FOR!
WARM APPLE TARTE TATIN P260
With Cappuccino ice cream and Vanilla sabayon sauce. Also a good dessert.
KD... Don't go! :(
We had dinner with KD's colleagues. Bon Voyage my dearest friend. I'll be facetime-ing with you soon!
Have A Lovely Day!
