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!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
