The interiors are nice and bright. The restaurant has a small space but they manage to make it seem roomy and breathable. There are simple design accents that make the place likeable: the hanging light bulbs, the chalkboard with the specialties, and the wine display. This is a good place to go to with your friends and family.
Complimentary bread and herbed butter is served while waiting for the orders to arrive. I always appreciate free appetizers and wouldn’t judge a restaurant so much by the quality of it because it’s free. The bread was warm and crusty enough but full of air once you rip apart a piece. The herbed butter was quite tasty. All in all, thumbs up for giving customers something to munch on. It was a decent complimentary appetizer. It was definitely a promising start to our dining experience!
Mesclun had different salads in their menu catering to the various salad eaters: salads with meat, salads with cheese, salads with fruits, etc. I decided to go for the Mesclun salad which contained prosciutto, peaches, nuts, and cheese, served with balsamic vinaigrette.
It did not disappoint. It was a hearty salad that I enjoyed eating. I would go back to have this salad. Is it the best salad? No, it isn’t. But it’s pretty darn good. No complaints here.
Tip: you may ask for extra toast, the serving of poke is pretty generous.
Upon taking a bite of the pasta, I was immediately assaulted by the creamy yet tangy sauce. I loved the flavor! It didn’t really taste like sisig that much though and I wish there was crispy sisig mixed in it to give it more texture and sisig-ness. But as a pasta dish I really enjoyed it. The noodles were al dente, the flavors were spot on, and the serving size was just right, especially since we wanted to try other dishes. They have a bigger size too for those with heartier appetizers. Will definitely order this again.
This was supposed to come with rice pilaf but they forgot to serve it to us. We mentioned it after finishing the fish because I was bothered that they didn’t serve it while we were eating. I was hoping that it just took a bit longer but it didn’t arrived. They just apologized and asked us if we wanted to take the rice pilaf out. We opted not to but I wish they would have given us a free dessert. 🙂 Hihi. We didn’t complain anymore because of the good service before that.
I’ll definitely eat here again! There are a lot of dishes I want to go back for and I’m interested to try their crispy pata too. 🙂
