Brunch is a combination of breakfast and lunch eaten usually during the late morning to early afternoon, generally served from 11 am up to 3 pm.

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.

 

fat girls day out- waterside
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.

Beef ribs with Szechuan Sauce. 

 

Taken from the rib of the cow, they slow cook the meat until it falls off the bone. The meat and the fat melting together creating a rich taste that is well complemented by the spicy sauce, coriander, and enoki mushrooms. A good combination of contrasting complimenting flavors and textures.

The Dong Po Style Pyramid Pork Belly with Mantou

The on-point presentation that showcases Red Lantern’s chefs precision in their craft. Its rich thick sauce drapes each layer of the stacked pork belly. The pork belly is soft and almost gelatinous in texture, it’s best when sandwiched between the soft and warm mantou buns.
