Birthday Lunch At Ristorante delle Mitre

C celebrated her birthday lunch at Mitre because we love, love the food there. The crispy pata was our number one priority and laing. We've already tasted the laing and it blends well with the crispy pata. Alas, the kitchen ran out of laing (lots of customers when we arrived at the restaurant). But that's okay since there's still lots on the menu that we haven't tasted ... yet.




Fried Chicken and Fries. Didn't get to taste this because its chicken. But I know its good because I didn't see any leftovers. J was the one who suggested this dish since she saw the same dish come out of the kitchen. Yes, she watches the food that comes out of the kitchen. ;)




Seafood Kare-Kare. We ordered ox tail kare-kare during our last visit but found the sauce was too thick and not enough for 4 pax so we tried the seafood version since we were told that it has more sauce than the ox tail. I like it especially with the bagoong.




Crispy Pata. We had it chopped already so it doesn't really look very crispy pata-ish. Also, the skin was not that crunchy anymore. Maybe its because it arrived early and our group is not complete yet. But still very, very good. Only the bones were left.




Pansit Bihon. Costs P128.00. Good for sharing. The pansit has a lemony taste so no need to use the kalamansi. I think it has some wansoy also but I am not really sure because I can't find any leaves. Or maybe its invisible kinchay. Hahaha. Highly recommended!




Mais Con Yelo. I'm glad it looks appealing. We were almost saying--- oh no! when "I" ordered this (blame our saba con yelo experience at this restaurant) but luckily, it looks okay and delish than the saba counterpart. You can also ask for extra milk. Yey!




Halo-Halo. I'm glad we didn't ask to the waiter to split our two halo-halo into four because the glass they'll use are kinda small (the mais con yelo glass) while they use this big glass for an order of halo-halo. Besides, you can just ask for a small bowl or glass. The first time we ordered this, there's 4 of us who enjoyed it. And yes, we were given extra milk and another. Two thumbs up.




Blueberry Cheesecake. C's birthday cake. And we almost forgot to order her a cake because we were already full. But what's a birthday without a cake, right? So we just ordered a slice of her favorite cheesecake. Yummy! A slice costs P138.00 but they didn't scrimp on ingredients. So cheesy- hehehe. Highly recommended. I'm definitely ordering this again ... SOON.
