Foodie Faves: Dulcelin Gourmet
Home of the delicious mango torte, Dulcelin Gourmet has an extensive menu that will not only satisfy your sweet cravings but also your love for home-cooked meals.
We celebrated my sister's birthday last Thursday and everything we ordered was pretty good! And the great thing about this place? ...Is it's reasonable price -- making this restaurant a place worth going back to :)
Hickory Smoked Pork Ribs (P295)
We loved how tender this one is, and see that brown crisp on top of the rice? That's lechon skin :P Yuuuum!
"Dry rubbed, hickory smoked, grilled and smothered with our tangy barbecue sauce. Served with our unique lechon skin and garlic friend rice."
Chicken Relleno (Single - P250; To Share - P400)
Much liked the classic embutido, the chicken, chorizo, raisins and cheese stuffing was perfectly paired with Dulcelin's gravy and corn rice :)
"One of Dulcelin's bestsellers. Boneless chicken stuffed with pork, chorizo, etc."
Chocolate Decadent Cake (P120)
Bitter-sweet delight that ends up light to the mouth. It's not as heavy as I thought it would be, in short, the fluffy texture was just the right touch to an otherwise gluttonous treat :)
Mango Torte P140
Okay, I really don't have words for this but LOVE! I had my sister order another slice even before the first one was finished! Mango torte monster! The crust's nougat-ty and nutty texture balances the frozen mango which melts in your mouth with a little crunch :)
PS. We also had their Spicy Chorizo Pasta (red-sauced pasta in chili oil and ground chorizo, at P295) & their Pan Fried White Fish (marinated in buttermilk with porcini cream sauce, at P250) :)
We already dug in before I took photos, sorry! If you're not a fan of spicy food though, suggest you stay away from the chorizo pasta, but since I love spicy food, that was one of my favorites :)
There you have it! It was a good dining experience and I can't wait to try Dulcelin's other delicious dishes :)
