NEW RESTO ALERT: The Waterside Restobar

words and photos by Irene Enriquez

There are a number of restaurants serving Mediterranean dishes around Manila. The Waterside Restobar is the newest and probably the most elegant addition. Located at the Sky Tower in Solaire Resort & Casino, it is an all-day dining restaurant which serves Latin American and Mediterranean specialties.



During the opening of Waterside Restobar, the guests were served a full dining course which included a variety of tapas,  beef brisket, chicken, and prawn. I am not a big fan of seafood, so I didn’t try it. However, the rest of the table loves it without a doubt! Along with the classic Mediterranean dishes, paella rice was served.

The meal was not all-meat, of course, as we also enjoyed a healthy serving of crunchy asparagus with lemon and goat milk and crush carbonara potatoes. Honestly, it was my favorite among all the dishes that graced my plate.  Mediterranean food is actually known for its health benefits. For one thing, olive oil is an integral part of this type of cuisine. More importantly, meat is always paired with generous servings of vegetables. Even the dessert looks and feels healthy. For dessert, some guests were served the cholcate tart while the others were delighted by the  pineapple ravioli. I was served the pineapple ravioli, which was perfect for a health buff and sweet tooth like me.

The interior design of Waterside Restobar has been just as lavish as its food serving. First off, dining in the restobar allows you to experience a bayside ambience. Posh furniture fills the place and even the utensils and napkins are impressive. If you want to make  a great impression on your first date, take him or her to Waterside Restobar; you will be immediately associated with class and elegance.

The next time you find yourself in Solaire, dropping by at Waterside Restobar is a must--whether you want to try the world class Mediterranean cuisine or simply enjoy a relaxing drink.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

PRODUCT REVIEW: XTREME HOME Coffee Machine XH-ESCM

Most of us (Filipinos) have discovered the passion to make a nice cup of coffee especially during the lockdown last year. Remember the Dalgona craze at the onset of the pandemic? From then on, coffee has become a part of our pandemic lifestyle, and this include having a coffee corner at home. 

Bolzico Beef To Go via GrabFood

Since last year, when the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and made everything stop, most people (me included) resorted to food delivery as it is safer than going to the restaurant, grocery, or market to buy food. One such favorite delivery app is GrabFood.
