The hubby and I were invited to Delish Restaurant last August 25. If there is one thing I love about blogging, it is the chance to discover and get invited to places where the hubby and I could spend quality time at. Delish is one of those great finds!
Delish’s location is perfect for us. Just a few kilometers from where we live. I wouldn’t have known a place so conveniently close with such great food offerings, if it was not for the invite. Thanks, Mrs. Martinez! 🙂
We were the earliest to come, so we figured we could do a photo op while waiting. We tend to forget having our pictures taken when the table is sprawled with foods galore.
Ever the root beer junkie that the husband is, he ordered a Float (P110) and Carrot Shake (P95) for moi. We also got to taste their House Iced Tea (P45) which is superb. I finished the whole glass in one sipping! But I still could not make of what the special flavor is. It is their secret recipe, apparently, that they would not dare divulge. 🙂
Crispy Bicol Express Special, P185 and Crab Relleno in Banana Leaves, P98
I’m not sure about you, but I have not seen Bicol Express served in a more interesting manner. Crab Relleno was a winner. At 98 pesos, an order can fill more than just hunger pangs but will delight taste buds as it satisfies your crab cravings.
Boneless Crispy Pork Knuckles with Oriental Sauce (good for 2 to 3), P390 and Quesadillas, P175
Crispy Pata, the ever present dish in any Filipino gathering. The plus factor of Delish’s take on Crispy Pata is its being boneless. I love not having to sweat my way through getting to those delectable and flavorful tendons. The oriental sauce they threw in with the dish is an interesting variation from the usual Crispy Pata dipping sauce. Quesadillas is my runaway favorite.
On the left is is the Spinach and Parmesan Dip with Melba Toast, P145 and on the right is the Crispy Honey-Garlic Chicken, P89
The Spinach and Paremesan Dip with Melba Toast makes for a great starter. The toast is baked perfect that I had to ask one of the owners who they bread supplier is. They don’t have a supplier. The toast is baked fresh from their kitchen! Sweet! That alone tells you that a restaurant only serves the freshest of foods. And the Crispy Honey-Garlic Chicken was heavenly! I love how crunchy the skin is and the flavor you get with every bite.
Baked Oysters with Garlic and Cream Cheese, P225 and Baked Oysters with Spinach, Bacon and Herb, P220
On the left is a platter of Baked Oysters with Garlic and Cream Cheese and Baked Oysters with Spinach, Bacon and Herb. Separately they are served 8 pcs of oysters per plate, per variant. They just served us with a platter with combined variants during the food tasting event. The baked oysters with cream cheese was good but I loved the one topped with Spinach, Bacon and Herb the best. It is way more flavorful and tasty.

MWF is Delish Restaurant’s Acoustic Nights. We were serenaded by this balladeer during the event. A perfect hang out place, date night and night cap all rolled into one. I heard they also hold Karaoke nights.
Honey Panna Cotta, P95 and Butterscotch Pavlova (good for 2 to 3), P145
Both dessert pieces were perfect. While I delighted in the Butterscotch Pavlova, the hubby loved Honey Panna Cotta. The generous serving of Butterscotch Pavlova totally satisfied my sweet tooth cravings. The soft texture of the egg whites similar to that of brazo de mercedes, sprinkled with brittles of sweet caramel and all the works makes for a perfect dinner climax.
If there are three things I will go back to Delish for, it will be Quesadillas, the Crispy Honey-Garlic Chicken and the House Iced Tea. But then again, It will be a waste if I’d go back to just that. I will probably just order everything I tasted during this event all over again. 😉
