After the exhilarating trick-or-treat at Robinsons Magnolia, we went to Cibo for lunch. The restaurant was packed with early shoppers and Halloween participants. After ordering from the menu, we were transferred to a larger table. The waiter might have thought that we ordered a lot for 4 people (3 adults +1 toddler) ; p
|Insalata Di Manzo Php 525|
Greens, roast beef tenderloin and balsamic vinaigrette
We ordered a To Share salad. The serving is huge with a lot of thinly sliced beef tenderloin on top of the fresh greens. I like the simplicity of the presentation. Tastewise, I love it ; ) It is all in the right amount of balsamic vinaigrette used. And of course, the freshly ground pepper on top!
|Costolette D'Agnello Php 535|
Grilled lamb chop, red wine mint sauce, parsley rice pilaf
In the few times I have eaten at Cibo, I almost always order my favorite- lamb chops. The meat was tender, juicy and yummy. I didn't know that I can have a mint sauce on the side until my sister requested for one. Trust me, you don't need the sauce as the meat in itself is already flavorful.
|Ossobuco Con Gremolata Php 460|
Braised beef shank, lemon-parsley sauce, parsley rice pilaf
If I am all praise with my lamb chops, DH was so disappointed with his order of ossobuco. The meat was hard-to-chew. Although the waiter offered to replace it, DH was so hungry he can't wait any longer so he just ate it. Poor DH ; (
|Minestra di Funghi Php 220|
Mushroom, spelt rosemary
I ordered Minestra di Funghi for my little girl. The last time we were there, she was able to finished one full cup. This time, it was no different. She loved it!
DH also ordered Minestrone Php 210 (not in the photo).
I also didn't know that you can request for Cibo's complimentary chips. It's really good, try it!
|Cappuccino Php 105|
