first served was the Fettucine with Blue Cheese and Roasted Mushrooms
There wasn't a tinge of blue cheese taste, if it wasn't for the name I wouldn't even know it should have one. It tasted like regular carbonara. My 2 yr old liked it though.
next came the Pollo Iberico
Both me and my husband thought it lacked taste. Even the sauce didn't improve it :(
The Sangria Te was served while we were having our chicken
The red ice tea with bits of fruits tasted fine - you could taste that it was really a house blend
For their cake of the day, the Chocolate Cake
It seems I had tasted this cake before - oh yeah, at Cravings during their cake all you can! Turns out Casa Roces is part of the Cravings Group.
That ends our meal from Deal Grocer @ 720P. I ordered additional coffee and hot choco to accompany our cake...
Tsokolate Eh - hot choco thickened with peanut butter @ 70P
I actually liked this best in all that was served. The hot choco and peanut butter complemented each other well
hubby had a cup of Caffe Latte @ 130P. In the background of this picture they also had a 'Rainy Day Promo' but it's only until today, August 15 - From 2 to 6pm free refills of merienda
It was OK, straightforward, I found the heart froth cute :)
I wanted to order the Malacanan Frozen Souffle since it sounded good and was recommend at foursquare when I checked in - Frozen Lemon Custard Souffle with Dark Chocolate Flakes @ 415P; but we were already full :(
It was quite weird that they didn't offer their bestsellers in their deal since the other recommended items in foursquare had reasonable prices from their menu.
So given the food was just OK, we think what makes the restaurant special is the ambiance (oh, and the valet parking :))
Here are some pictures... We weren't able to go to the second floor with the function rooms, but the first floor was already pretty nice. Specially the area with the gold fish and the big door, our toddler loved it!
This was the area I was talking about. We stayed there for quite some time. Baby didn't want to say bye to the fish!
Imagine if you had this big door at home
Entrance going to the dining area
You would see this grandpa while waiting for your car being picked up by the valet
