today i had lunch with aki (whose pic is not available on this blog coz he said he didn't look good on the pics we've taken earlier at the resto! hahaha) at Metro Gourmet. its location is fronting the Metro Ayala Grocery. i love gourmet dish because its always served with sophistication. aside from the sophistication, when its gourmet, it would mean that its prepared with only the finest ingredients there is, diba? hehe :) aside from being a resto, they also sell imported ingredients, from meat to cheese and etc. here's our ganap.
and here's one ingredient na ubod ng mahal na hindi ko kinaya - foie gras. foie gras is a duck liver. aside from being known as one of the most expensive dish served in high-end hotels and resto, its flavor is described as rich, buttery and delicate that melts in your mouth. di ko pa kayang i-achieve ang ganitong klaseng dish coz we have monetary concerns as of the moment. hahaha! here's the foie gras.
i suggested to Aki that he should try the hickory smoked ribs. yes, i didn't fail to impress Aki on this particular dish. he loved it to death! hahaha... but then, we ended up arguing if the sauce has curry or none. hahaha... feeling mga foodies kami eh. hahaha.. anyways, this only costs Php 160.00! super worth the price! a must try! :)
i tried their bolognese pasta. i love pasta sauce but this type of pasta dish doesn't have much sauce. instead, the sauce is composed of veggies and meat and a bit of dried tomato sauce. hahaha... but the taste was just ok. a bit sweet and sour. not bad at all though. its paired with garlic bread. :)
so guys, whenever you feel like doing grocery at Metro Ayala Cebu, dont forget to drop by Metro Gourmet and try their gourmet dishes. two thumbs up for this resto. :) the only bad thing about their customer service is that, they don't allow their employees to take pictures of their customers whenever they're asked for this type of favor. their employees will be reprimanded by management. i'm curious though. let me ask their supervisor next time as to why. intrimitida diba? hahaha... well, i just want to know why coz in high-end restos, its totally ok, but for them, its not. weird but totally interesting. hahaha :)
