Last night, we went to a familiar restaurant – Elias. My first time to eat there was also with my family during Valentine’s day. Yes, I wasn’t with lovey.:/ too bad for me. Chris was there.:( So any, We were celebrating Ninong Al’s birthday. – Husband of Ninang Irma who is the sister of my dad.
This post is actually more of pictures alone cause I cannot fully describe the food. It was pouring hard last night so some of the roads were blocked because of the flood and we passed through two car accidents – which made us really late for dinner. Thus, no time to look at the menu and we were just a guest.
Elias is owned by Chef Florabel Co – Yatco who is also the owner of other food establishments like Crisostomo, Felix and Sweet Pea. If you visit the restaurant, you will see paintings – of which the characters of Noli me tangere can be seen. Even the dishes on the menu are named after some of the characters in the novel. Elias is located at North East Superblock, UG Level, 30th street corner 7th Avenue, Bonifacio High street.
The Bagumbayan Lechon – Php 285 (Lechon Kawali) – which was crispy enough served with what seemed like Mang Tomas sauce. It had kropek too.
They also ordered Chicharon Bulaklak. – which was way too oily. But I think, if you really order Chicharon, one should really expect a bit too much oil on your plate and in your face. :l They also ordered Caracol – Ginataang Kuhol.
For the mains, Sinigang ni Kapitan Php 430 – Sinigang with Prawns. And I must say, they have shrimps to brag about – it was really huge and real prawns. Too bad I didn’t get to take a picture of it. Sorry.:/
We had Cervantes. Php 385 – You’d expect a lot of meat and vegetables just like in the picture but when it was served to us, the only meat in the noodles were the one in the middle.
Don Rafael – the Classic Crispy Pata – Php 550.
We also had Susan – Mixed Seafood with their Secret sauce – Php 345
This is Ka Plaridel – Pla pla with Soy Calamansi.
TSP – Toyo, Suka, Patis. I guess? 🙂
The birthday boy himself – I’m sorry if the picture is blurry. I only had to zoom it since we really had a long table. He is about to blow his candle. – The crew sang for him with an Ube cake. But I’d pretty much prefer chocolate. 😦
Both of our Guest. Jaed (pronounced as Jade) and Ate Denise. – My first cousin. they’re both staying at our house while they’re here in Manila until the end of the month.
Ate Denise, my sister and my aunt, alice.
My brother – who we call whale shark as he is getting bigger by the minute. and my parents.
My mom and I. No, we don’t look a like.
Jaed, myself, Denise and sister.
I almost forgot! My green apple juice – another addition to my oh so favorite drinks. – I absolutely have a thing for everything that is sour.
Until next time. 🙂
P.S. I’m going to ask love if we can try Sweet Pea and Felix. :))
Its a Filipino Restaurant with authentic Filipino Cuisine so, Paalam.
