LuLu's Mezze (Php 355)
Miniature Pita with Hummus Beiruti, Roasted Eggplant and Salade Olivier

This is a great appetizer to start your meal. My personal favorite was the roasted eggplant dip. It was so flavorful and so yummy! The hummus was light and tasty while the olive salad with potato and chicken was very filling.

Argentinian Empanadas (Php 250)


My mom liked these little pies - hand-chopped Argentinian spiced beef empanadas with a roasted tomato Chimmichurri dip. 

Zucchini Blossom Tempura (Php 260)

This is my favorite among all the appetizers that we tried. The crunchy light batter was perfect with the tomato sauce, especially with the Davao goat cheese filled zucchini blossom fritters. It was a delight in one bite!

Golden Smoked Fish and Crab Cakes (Php 298)

Crab cakes are always a big hit on the table and Lulu Restaurant made it even yummier by mixing it with smoked tinapa goodness! Yummeh!

Mac n' Truffled 5-Cheese (Php 420)

You must try this in order to understand why it's a favorite in Lulu Restaurant - a traditional mac n' cheese  crusted and mixed with 5 kinds of cheeses scented with Truffles.

Trofie Carbonara with Truffled Chicken (Php 420)

It's pretty hard to get trofie pasta here. Lulu Restaurant gets it from a supplier from Sardinia. Trofie pasta uses twice the amount of dough used in regular pasta - the thin twisted pastas will definitely please foodies especially when they try LuLu Restarant's with wild mushroom, chicken chunks and carbonara sauce. A MUST TRY!!!


12-hour slowly Sous Vide Mediterranean Lamb Shank with Preserved Lemon Vermicelli Rice (Php 695)

The meat is so tender, falling off the bone. The sauce was rich and flavorsome, which was great with the vermicelli rice.

The Ultimate Pork Chop (Php 620)

This is HUGE!!! The 15 oz meat was soaked 24 hours in brine, sous vide for 2 hours and grilled for 15 minutes.The camote (sweet potato) mash was perfect with it - sweet and salty is a winning combination!
"Good for two ladies or maybe one man with a big appetite. The slice is pretty thick and yet it’s really juicy and tender! The meat is so well flavored that you can do away with the sauce, although the sauce really has an interesting and yet familiar flavor" - Grace Lee

Green Tea Salmon (Php 650)


Even the salmon was sous vide - this time with Japanese green tea. It was so soft and juicy, just like eating raw salmon sashimi, but cooked! If you are on a diet or wants to eat healthy, then this dish is for you. 

Dessert Sampler (Php 798) 
lemon yogurt cheesecake - "It's yogurt so it's healthier" - Jerome B. Smooth
dark chocolate tear - "Since it's dark chocolate, you'll live longer. This chocolate cake will make you cry with happiness' - Jerome B. Smooth
butterscotch apple pie - "An apple a day keeps the doctors away." - Jerome B. Smooth

If you cannot decide on the dessert, then just get LuLu Restaurant's dessert sampler. It is a plate full of heavenly goodness that no one could ever resist. I fell in love with the dark chocolate cake the moment I set my eyes on it; and, I was hooked instantly! It was like truffle chocolate that melts in your mouth. *sigh* I wish I have this in my refrigerator all the time. The cheesecake was light and lovely and the apple pie was every bit of happiness!
