Brasas & BONO artisanal gelato

Brasas was a delicious find inside the Podium Mall in Ortigas while scouting for a quick dinner.  I found the prices here very reasonable but I was later told that it's considered expensive in local standards.

I know the Philippines has a lot of Spanish influence but still I am impressed by the quality of the food served.  I love it so much I went back for lunch!  (If I return to the same restaurant during a business trip, that means I really enjoyed it.)  Don't really have much else to say since the pictures are gonna do all the talking for me!

Crispy, perfectly seasoned.
I am so glad I am not sharing this with anyone :P

Picadillo Soup

This soup was so delicious and set a bar so high for me.
Therefore, when I tried the Picadillo @ Tortas Frontera @ ORD,
you can only imagine my disappointment...
Don't worry, I will post a picture of that misery when I find it...

When I saw the food, I doubted myself for a second too...
"Can I finish all of this?"
After the first bite of everything... "Oh yes, I can."
Will definitely be back for more!
and I did! (but I was sick that day... so I couldn't eat nearly as much...) :'(

My amazing tummy was still able to find place for a delicious ube gelato!  Not just any gelato, but artisanal gelato~~~  They made at least a dozen flavors but when there is taro / ube, that's what I will always fall for, especially when I am in the Philippines.  Their ube ice cream is simply the best!

The ube did not disappoint and the black sesame was surprisingly delightful as well.  You are very aware of both flavors at the same time.  The black sesame topping were roasted, together with the wafer, provided the crunch for the different texture.  Oh, Philippines, I thought I won't gain weight coming here... how wrong was I!!!  I think it will be next to impossible for me to travel to a place and not find something I will love to eat...  :P
