Mad Mark’s Creamery and Good Eats: Solid Food Grub as Always

Mad Mark’s Creamery and Good Eats: Solid Food Grub as Always

I would definitely still vouch for the VALUE FOR MONEY line without compromising quality. You’d be able to enjoy a good old steak plate for less than 500php. Generous serving, attentive wait staff, and their ice creams are still really good.

Fienstra at Solaire: Unlimited Italian Oysters and Beyond- Aperitivo Epico

Fienstra at Solaire: Unlimited Italian Oysters and Beyond- Aperitivo Epico

What is an Aperitivo? Aperitivo is similar to the American “Happy Hour”, but it means much more to the Italians. Aperitivo is a northern Italian tradition, where you have a  pre-meal drink with light snacks or finger food that’s designed to stimulate your appetite for dinner. Well, let us tell you again about our Aperitivo experience where we had another, yet memorable Friday evening over at Finestra in Solaire Resort & Casino as we enjoyed free-flowing cocktails, wine, and of course air-flown fresh oysters from Italy.

Italian Oysters

With their briny liquid and velvety mouthfeel, their gorgeously mottled shells and in-the-raw presentation, one can never have enough of this wonderful gift from the sea.

Sharp saltiness may give way to its subtle sweetness, mild brininess transitioning into a clean taste. These 0ysters  are fresh, soft, creamy, and bursting with umami to the taste.

When enjoyed with the right wine other curated cocktails, the robust flavor of the oysters will truly come out making it an unforgettable experience.

Drinks we recommend

Negroni Spaglito, it’s a gin-based drink topped with orange zest. The orange scent fills your nostrils every time you take a sip. It’s a bit stronger than the two other drinks. This rendition is lighter and more refreshing. 

 

 

Cicchetti

Also sometimes spelled “cichetti” or called “cicheti” in Venetian language are small plates of food that you could nibble in between glasses of wine.

  • Calamari Fritti
  • Roman Rice Pilaf
  • Ham & Cheese Croquettes
  • Tomato Bruschetta
  • Anchovies and Mozzarella Crostini

 

 

Aperitivo Epico happens every third Friday of the month and it already started last October 19th from 5:30 pm to 10:30 pm. Reasonably priced at 1,295php ++ (*Price is inclusive of VAT and subject to service charge).

 

Why Go?

There are many ways to end the week right and experiencing Apertivos with Finestra at Solaire is highly recommended. From the moment you enter the door, you are welcomed into this world of glitz and glamour and given the royal treatment. The price point is justifiably a solid good value for money. You’d be spending the same amount also somewhere in Poblacion or BGC where the crowd is too rowdy, parking spaces are scarce, combined with mediocre food & service. As for the Fat Girls Day Out crew, we’d rather be spending our Friday evenings with somewhere worthwhile.

This is THE experience you want to have on your next Friday night. A night of carefree worry, care, laughter, and delicious bites.

Waterside at Solaire: A Very Meaty Indulgence Indeed

Waterside at Solaire: A Very Meaty Indulgence Indeed

Did you know that Solaire Resort & Casino isn’t just about their pretty grand casino and posh hotel rooms? When you step inside its premises there is this certain feeling of indulgence that you feel you need to dive into. May it be their unparalleled gaming facility, entertainment, leisure shops and dining. Solaire is also a playground for food enthusiasts. A whole swing of fine dining in-house signature restaurants- one of which is Waterside. A Latin-inspired fine dining restaurant offering authentic ensemble of fine Latin food staples.

They host various themed-centric culinary spreads on a monthly basis and for the month of October they are hosting the Meaty Indulgence  happening all Wednesdays and Saturdays of October

The Concept

Churrasco (pronounced as ‘shoe-RHAS’-ko’) is a unique type of cooking, created by the Gauchos. After digging pits in the ground, the Gauchos would start a bonfire from the rangelands of Brazil. Once the fire turns to cinders, large pieces of meat were skewered and slowly roasted to perfection over the fire pits.

 

What to Expect

Waterside at Solaire’s modern yet authentic interpretation of Southern Brazil’s centuries-old gaucho heritage way of serving and enjoying meats.

Picture perfectly seasoned meats, prepared by Chef Hylton Le Roux and his team who will do continuous table-side service of different cuts of perfectly seasoned meats; from beef, chicken, pork, sausage, and lamb. You will have many other delectable side offerings, including a bountiful nachos &  salad bar, sides, and partnered with unlimited free flowing curated drinks.

Grab a potent Mojito Fresca as an aperitif. 

The Mojito Fresca is a rum based cocktail with sugar, lime juice, soda water, mint, strawberries, and chilies. It’s a light and refreshing drink that is perfect for a nightcap with the girls.

 

fat girls day out- waterside

 

A Waterside staple is their famous Nacho Bar. Sweet potato chips, potato chips, and spiced tortilla chips with an ample amount of options for toppings. We recommend the pulled pork and melted cheese with a side of sweet potato chips as our favorite combination. Definitely a great way to prepare your palate to your main dishes.

 

Just remember, the main course is yet to come. Servers swing by with endless streams of meats—sausages, lamb, prime rib and more.

 

Visual Snippets of Our Meat Indulgence

Finally, after a few appetizers, we were ready. Turn over the green bottom to let the wait staff know that you are now ready to partake in the meaty indulgence.

 

fat girls day out- waterside

 

Succulent, tender, and well marinated proteins. Already delectable by itself that we suggest not to add any sauces at all. Although their home made chimichurri is pretty good and by which goes well with everything.

 

 

Where skewer-wielding and chunk wooden trolleys of their chefs circulate from table to table, plying diners with carved-on-demand grilled meat—features the same unlimited and insidiously complimenting sides, and mouthwatering roster of beef, pork, sausages, and poultry.

We recommend saving some room for the following dishes:

  • Bacon wrapped tenderloin – this salty smoky bacon melts into the tenderloin that turns each bite into a meaty indulgence
  • Chicken in Beer – Moist and juicy chicken with a flare of spice
  • Pork Sausage – Thick cut plump sausages that’s brimming with Latin flavors

You can also pair this with their numerous choices of sauce that even includes soy sauce and calamansi for their in-house crispy pata.

There will be freshly prepared churros for dessert served with three kinds of dips (caramel, white chocolate, and milk chocolate).

 

 

 

Why Go

The Fat Girls Day Out crew arrived hungry,and left fully satisfied. Waterside’s A Meaty Indulgence is a solid dining experience itself. An extravagant blend of fine meats, flowing cocktails,  excellent service and an overall complete dining experience.

 

Prepare to  turn your placard from red to green and fasten your seat belt. Servers arrive one after another with various cuts of beef, lamb, chicken, and pork.
