CHOCOLATE SALAD

The Chocolate Chamber’s Chocolate Salad proves that chocolate on a salad is possible.

Served with the Chocolate High Tea from 3:21 p.m. – 5:21 p.m., this chocolate on fresh greens, tomatoes and lavender petals completes the ultimate TCC experience, alongside a light meal that includes raisin and lemon scones, homemade marmalade, pralines, artisan chicken sandwich, artisan tuna sandwich, and a cup of hot chocolate.

ARABIAN SALAD
Brique Modern Kitchen

The latest venture of the Creative Cuisine Gourmet group might’ve been around for a while, but the city’s gastronomes have already been flocking in and out of Brique Modern Kitchen along Salinas Road. It offers culturally diverse flavors you get to taste in their entrees and desserts.

An example is the Arabian Salad, made with fresh romaine lettuce, grapes, minced chicken breast, and a Middle Eastern touch of chick peas and pita chips, all smothered in a cucumber yogurt dressing. It’s rich yet subtle in taste – a trademark of any Arabian dish.

THAI PRAWN SALAD
Isidra Comfort Cantina

Famed to bring comfort food in a casual, cool setting, Isidra Comfort Cantina also dives into a sea of cuisines including Mediterranean, Tex-Mex, and Filipino. While their homegrown flavors are a hit, their Thai Asian Prawn Salad is a must-try.

This Isidra original is served with prawns grilled to juicy perfection, but the dish’s hero is the crispy Asian vermicelli that adds to the bursting texture and flavor brought by its uniquely savory and spicy dressing.

Zee’s Pick for the Week

Tickle Your Palate with Father’s Eggs

ZEE picks an interesting dessert for our reader’s sweet passions.  Plantation Bay’s Bakeshop by the Beach created a dessert specialty that will tickle both your palate and naughty thoughts.

Pastry Chef Gerard Apurado presented a unique treat for this year’s Father’s Day, it is called Father’s Eggs.  However, Father’s Eggs received highly positive feedback from their clientele and from food critics.  And the people could not stop ordering them; so why not make everyday a Father’s Day?

Father’s Eggs are delicately crafted custard inside an eggshell; plus, it comes in six different flavors:  coffee, pandan, strawberry, ube, plain custard, and mango.  However, each flavor is given a playful name by Chef Apurado.  The amazing part is that every flavor is so distinct and crave-worthy.  Chef Apurado is keeping the recipe a secret; but everyone can order Father’s Eggs at the Plantation Bay’s Bakeshop by the Beach Facebook page.
