Balducci ♥ ♥ and Bar Dolci ♥ ♥ ♥

balducci serendra


Sherylou lives in Cubao, Sheryl lives in New Manila, Jen lives in Pasig, and I live in Paranaque. So you see, impromptu dinners with my girlfriends, they almost never happen.


Except for one Thursday night when Sheryl suddenly calls at 4pm and suggests dinner at 6:30pm.

OMG! OMG! This is exciting, spontaneous stuff!!! (You must forgive me, I’m a geek like that)


IMG_0274I spread mine generously with liver pate and then pile a heap of tomato salsa on top


IMG_0276Insalata Rucola – I’ve always loved the bitter earthiness of arugula.
Tossed with gorgonzola, walnuts and fresh pear, this salad makes for a perfect start.


IMG_0279Special Tagliatelle in a Truffle Sauce Wrapped in Prosciutto – really, who can go wrong
with truffle cream and prosciutto? This is LOVE.


four cheese pizzaQuattro Formaggi Pizza – I wish for stinky cheeses and a thinner crust


rack of lambGrilled French-cut Rack of Lamb with Homemade Mint Sauce – the lamb is tough and flavorless, the mint sauce more sweet than minty

After dinner at Balducci, we go for dessert at Bar Dolci.

Yes, because Bar Dolci rhymes beautifully with Balducci. (Me = Geek)

And because it is home to some of the best gelatos in Manila.
