Romulo Cafe is definitely the Best Filipino Restaurant in the Philippines!!!
For starters, we ordered:
CHEESE and VIGAN LONGGANISA DUMPLINGS (Php 135) - a must try!!!
POMELO SALAD (Php 240) - green salad with pomelo, salted eggs and Baguio strawberry vinaigrette
we loved the salted egg and strawberry vinaigrette combination.
Our main dishes were:
SPAGHETTINI with PRAWNS AJILLO in ALIGUE SAUCE (Php 250)
If you love aligue, then you have to order this!
LENGUA (Php 260) - very tender.
TITO GREG's KARE-KARE (Php 385)
This was awesome!!!!
Best kare-kare plus it's enough to share with 3-4 persons.
FLYING TILAPIA with 3 SAUCES (Php 295) - choice of sweet chili garlic sauce, honey bagoong, pickled ampalaya and soy vinegar
We loved the presentation.
The fish was so crispy and yet it was not dry :) mmmmmmmm good!
If you ask the waiter to cut it for you, make sure to remind him to leave everything - the head and the bone too because that is where the best parts are.
GINATAANG SIGARILLAS with TINAPA (Php 160)
This was the first time I have eaten sigarillas. I only hear it in the song.. "Bahay Kubo".. and to my surprise, it was one of the best vegetable dishes ever! A MUST TRY indeed!
Our drinks were:
GREEN MANGO SHAKE (Php 85)
SUNSHINE LEMONADE (Php 85) - fresh lemonade, strawberry syrup
COOL AS CUCUMBER (Php 95) - fresh lime, fresh cucumber, mint leaves
This would have been more refreshing if they also added a bit of mint syrup :)
Some sweets to end our wonderful dinner:
BUKO PANDAN with ICE CREAM (Php 150) - we've had better
CRISPY SUMAN SA LATIK (Php 60) - ANOTHER MUST TRY
What a unique way to eat suman! Cut it in smaller pieces, fry it then dip it in coconut sauce -- ultra yummy goodness!!!
