Yes people ...
The man is pregnant
Get this - he is proudly half-Pinoy
Half man, half woman and half Filipino
Three halves equal a "hole"
Ooooooooooooops - a "whole" ...
(Sorry about that)
The world is going mad
Global warming is frying our brains
The unthinkable is now reality
The totally weird is totally real
Talk about the impossible ...
A pregnant man !
What will they think of next?
A faithful husband ??????
(Sorry about that ... )
That really calls for a drink (donchatink?)
And perhaps a good dinner to boot
There is after all a new place in town ...
Located along the rejuvenated and blooming Makati Avenue strip,
This casually elegant restaurant positions itself as serving "new Asian cuisine"
The place is in a "dry run" of sorts - but already one can see the makings of an upcoming hotspot
Service is warm and personal
Servers are helpful and knowledgeable
A glass of white wine started us off.
We took our time exploring the menu ...
It was a tough choice -there was much which was of interest.
For our first time sortie, we tried :
1. Squid marinated in sweet and spicy Thai dressing with sesame phyllo and alfalfa
2. Thai surf and turf - chili prawns, sweet pork belly and chicken pandan with Thai fried rice, quail egg and green mango
3. Seared beef tenderloin in rasberry teriyaki sauce, with crusted foie gras and truffled mash potatoes
4. Soy cheesecake with almond cornflake crust, green tea mousse and oolong tea syrup
The dinner went well beyond my expectations
What a pleasant and delicious surprise
The mix of several flavors coming together in one dish was masterfully executed
This was "fusion" cuisine that made sense
I was hooked
I knew I would be back ...
I will be the guy in the corner table with a big belly
No - I won't be pregnant
I really just have a big belly ....
