Be the Referee

Manny Paquiao the Pacman had won again
The nation was ecstatic
Unified (for once) in rooting for a homeboy ...

We are like that
Coming together to watch our heroes beat the wits out of our common enemies
Beat them to a pulp if need be
We cheer whether the battle be in a boxing ring or in a political arena

Macho macho man
Hoooo haaaaa (muscle flexing)
This a time for meat ...
Time for a good manly cut of beef

Myron's Place in the swank Greenbelt 5 was a friend's recommendation
And with an outdoor patio area that allows one to dine under the wonderful tree canopy of Greenbelt 5

Our menu choices were pretty straightforward with no real surprises.

"Sisig samosas"
Mesclun Salad with sea scallops and raspberry vinaigrette
Baked oyster sampler (includes baked oyster with foie gras)
Duet of bacon-wrapped Angus steak and grilled prawns
And finally ...
Roast US Angus Rib-Eye Beef
Wine please ...

Friends walked in and out
A few waves , a few smiles
Beso-beso , chismis
Manila is a small town full of people whose national pastime aside from eating, is to talk
It was an evening full of chatter - much of it about the days boxing event

The food itself though was not a "knockout"
More like a split decision
I had expected more
But ...
They are in "soft opening"
I wouldn't count them out just yet
"You can never can tell"
You are just gonna' have to try them yourselves
Be the referee ...

Let me know

that's sad when a restaurant opens and ended up being all about presentation but the food is all about mediocre. we've been to some of those and we never go back.

Daguldol Tarakatac III said...

It wasn't that bad - just not a knockout...
or maybe I am just being kind :-)

I wonder how my recipes would compare lol..seeing this stuff makes me try more concoction in the kitchen...tuloy.

I laughed about what you said on how pinoys like to ride the bandwagon....twas like that with a pinoy who won the musical here in Austria, I was reading stuff like : "Pinsan ko yan, pareho kami surname e!" hehe.

And national pastime? hahaha I couldnt agree more...

Daguldol Tarakatac III said...

I am sure that your recipes would be much tastier than many ...
I mean -look how healthy your kids are. They must be eating something good ....

i was disappointed when i ate at Myrons in Rockwell, but the oysters in ur pics looks gooooooood

Daguldol Tarakatac III said...

Yes - like i said- "not a knockout" .
Hopefully they will get better over time.

Thanks for dropping by

Hi! How much would it take to dine here (say if I were to order steak?)
Love your pics by the way. :)

Thanks so much for droppin' by
Mixed reviews for Myron's but definitely worth at least a try.

The prices are very "Greenbeltish". If I remember right - roast beef US Angus rib-eye is about 800pesos for a 250gm cut, about 1350pesos for 400gms etc.

Hope you have fun
