It’s not often that an Italian restaurant pops up in my city. Heck it’s not often a professional chef owns it and pours his knowledge backed with years of working in hotels. So one Fridate, Mr. JG & I had dinner at Francesco’s Kitchen.
Sorry no other photos of the restaurant, just the food. 🙂 Photos taken with Oppo F3.
Burrata con varieta’ di pomodori aragula, olio extra vergine d’ oliva e basilico, Php 420
Burrata with tomato selection, arugula, extra virgin olive oil and basil.
Nothing special really as I think all burrata are the same. 🙂
Risotto nero con calamaretti e polpa di riccio, Php 480
Squid ink risotto, baby calamari and sea urchin.
Not as photogenic as the burrata but it’s a really good risotto!
Fettuccine aglio e olio, polpa di granchio e asparagi, granella di pane aromatico, Php 490
Crabmeat fettuccine, olive oil and garlic with asparagus and aromatic bread crumbles.
We enjoyed this pasta dish. It’s packed with crabmeat yet it’s not overpowering the flavor of the entire dish. Though I would recommend the for sharing as it’s too creamy, at least for my tastebuds.
Filetto di cernia al forno con guazzetto di vongole e fagioli bianchi al vermentino, Php 790
Oven roasted grouper with clams, white beans and Vermentino broth.
A light dish that I enjoyed. The grouper was cooked perfectly complemented with Vermentino broth.
We were so full from what we ordered that there was really no room for pizza nor dessert but it’s another reason to go back and try their other offerings.
863 A. Mabini Street, Addition Hills, San Juan City
I pass this daily when I take my daughter to school and I’ve always wanted to try the place. Thanks for the extra push 😉 #thisiswhyweworkout LOL
