C2 Classic Cuisine
18 Missouri Street, Northeast Greenhills, San Juan, Metro Manila, Philippines
I attended the Grand Launch of C2 Classic Cuisine earlier this past week. We were served different dishes which we can sample and critique. I said critique because most of us invited are from media. They didn’t disappoint. The food is good & well-presented.
Though I was late, they still served food to newcomers. I wasn’t able to taste the other menu items because I was 2 hours late! Good thing, they had backups so I was able to sample some of their dishes. 🙂
The ff. menu items were served to us:
- Turon Ala Mode (Php 145)
This is a popular dessert in the Philippines. This is banana cooked spring-roll style with langka sauce on top. Served with vanilla ice cream.
I love it! The size is just right and you can just taste each & every ingredient. Perfect combination & a nice twist done by C2 Classic Cuisine on the dish.
- Seared Tilapia in Coconut Emulsion (Php 450)
I like this dish. Tilapia fillet fried into perfection and served with pineapple salsa in creamy coconut sauce. I especially love that they put crunchy potato into the dish. The presentation was great! It really made the dish exciting & not boring.
- Tinolang Binakol (Php 285)
This caught my attention right away because I’ve never seen soup served in a coconut shell before. It’s nice that they had a porcelain container beside this dish, as the coconut shell will not be enough of a container to put the dish in.
Anyway, Tinolang Binakol is tender chicken cutlets in ginger-coconut soup served with sayote and coconut strips. Honestly, I wasn’t able to taste any coconut strip but the coconut was still in the coconut shell hehehe 😛 Maybe they weren’t just able to carve the coconut because of time constraint. Still, I believe this was a nice concept. I was hoping they had put in more chicken though. .
- Guinataang Puso ng Saging (Php 210)
This was another great presentation! This was spicy banana heart in coconut cream sauce wrapped in lettuce leaves.
The way each dish was presented and how unique each dish was, you could really see the effort they put in each and every dish that they serve. I love it!
- Garlic Rice (Php 75)
This is what I really love about C2 Classic Cuisine. Theirs is not the usual Filipino restaurant that we have in Manila. The food is delicious. It has this contemporary twist to it. And more importantly: the price is just right. I will definitely try this out again.
