Delicioso: Muy Delicioso!
It’s one rainy evening and we were set to eat at Delicioso Restaurant in Bacolod City, Philippines.
While many of our friends already gave their good preview of the place, it was “Happy Trip’s” Team first time to be in that place.
Delicioso House Salad: mixed of lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, bell peppers, orange segment, jamon serrano ( a dry-cured Spanish ham which is generally served raw in thin slices, or occasionally diced), and shaved parmesan cheese in balsamic vinaigrette .
Caesar salad: lettuce and croutons dressed with parmesan cheese, lemon juice, olive oil, egg, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and black pepper.
The moment you will enter the place you will be greeted by the showcase featuring a wide array of imported cheese and cold cuts – my appetite were stimulated right there and then.
To our left,we saw shelves of imported varians of utensils, condiments dispenser and many other unique and might be hard to find kitchen wears –all for sale, suited for gifts and giveaways. The other half of the shelves were all dedicated to wines and liquors. The interior was very simple and straight forward, no fancy decors nor stylish lighting. To my mind maybe they wanted us to focus on the food.
Grilled Steak made of prime grade ribeye boneless and served with vegies and mashed potato.
We asked the food server to tell us about their menu especially the most sought after amongst their offerings as that was our first time in the place.
For our appetizer, we ordered for Sobrasada, a chorizo spread with garlic toast.As much as possible I do away with fats for health reasons, but I can’t help but to indulge in this appetizer as it tasted really good.
For our salad, we ordered the usual Cesar salad and Delicioso House Salad and were glad we only ordered for two because their servings were huge. In fact, their salad is already enough for one meal. One serving is good for 2-3 persons already. I love their Delicioso House salad.
Paella is a rice dish originating from Spain, and it takes its name from the pan it is cooked in, which is called “Paellera” from the Latin word for ‘pan’ or ‘dish.’ The main ingredients are rice, saffron and olive oil and garnished with vegetables and meat or seafood.
For our main course we ordered Callos served with rice, one of the house’s most in-demand items. We were thinking to try their Paella Negra, but we don’t want to stain our tongue so we opted Paella Valenciana instead. Paella Valenciana is one complete meal already. We also tried their Grilled Steak made of prime grade ribeye boneless and served with veggies and mashed potato. The meat was perfectly grilled, juicy and tender.
Other best sellers of the house which we wanted to try next time are their pizza and pasta. Their wines are sold per bottle but they have the Housewine, Castillo de Alba, a red wine which is sold at 100/glass.
Our dinner was really great. I guess we went beyond our limits that evening, We just can’t help but to try every food that we ordered. We can really say that the place is a must try. Our dinner date became even more exciting as we were sharing many happy thoughts as usual among happy trippers like us. As we sipped the various fruit shakes we ordered we just realize that more than the food that we partake that evening, it was our laughter and friendships that made the already greatly tasting meals served by Delicioso even more exciting.
So that evening we just concluded, good food and good company will make every meal, muy Delicioso!
