Patio Carlito

Patio Carlito

I woke up hungover this particular Sunday morning after an all-day drinking session with Ren's cousins the Saturday before. My head felt like a brick and my stomach unsettled so I wasn't in the mood for anything too exotic or fancy for lunch.

My mom was treating the entire family to a Saturday matinee of the musical Kaos at Resort World, so she treated us to lunch here as well before catching the 3 pm show.

Ren and I decided to check out this place one Friday afternoon after the power had been out for most of the day. We didn't want to leave our babies Henry and Mona all alone...

I love dimsum. After sushi, it's my next favorite bite-sized gastronomic delight. I love the different varieties, the presentation, the cart with all the bamboo steamers stacked one on top of the other.

This review has been parked as a draft for almost a year now so my apologies if I keep this one short. Though it's been over a year since we ate here, I remember the experience to be underwhelming as the dishes we sampled were bland and uninspiring.

I often brag to Renee how my Korean friends used to take me to these incredibly delicious, authentic "Korean-only" restaurants in the states. (If you've lived in the states and have Korean friends there, then you know what I mean) Since being back in Manila though, I haven't found an establishment that comes close. After dining at WooRi Jib last night, I'm happy to say that my search has officially ended.

I absolutely love Japanese food. If I had to eat just one cuisine for the rest of my life, it would have to be Japanese (with Indian a close second). When sampling a new restaurant, one of the factors which determines whether I'll be going back there or not is how good their California roll is, and let me say that the California roll at Yutaka Izakaya was very good.
