4th Level, Trinoma Mall, Edsa corner North Avenue, Quezon City
Had lunch with Stef awhile ago, I asked if we could eat at a place that is newly opened. She recommended Rastro Cafe.
It’s a friday but throughout lunch, we were the only customers. I really hope this is not the case everyday coz if it is, then this restaurant will probably close in a few month’s time.
Rastro Cafe is a spanish restaurant. We made sure we ordered their Paella specialty. We were asked if we would want to try their buffet (Php 550 per person) but we declined. Their buffet consists of several dishes, they offer it fridays, saturdays & sundays lunch & dinner time. I wonder what will happen to the food they prepared as there was noone else in the restaurant but us.
Anyway, here are what we ordered:
- Crema de Champion (Php 140)
typical cream of mushroom soup that is more on the creamy side.
- Salpicao (Php 250)
Beef tenderloin sauteed in garlic & olive oil. This is definitely one of the better tasting beef salpicao I tried so far. Beef is tender and sauce is done really well, super good!
- Paella ala Catalina (Php 850)
According to the waiter, from all the paella dishes that they offer, this is the best (& ofcourse the most expensive :P). We’ll have to wait for 20 minutes before this can be served though w/c is fine as Stef and I has a lot of stories to catch up to 🙂
A chef specialty, saffron rice w/ mussels, clams, shrimps, chicken & pork. According to Stef, she likes Casa Armas’ paella better. As for me, I think they all taste the same. I like their rice, not dry and very tasty.
