Win Buon Giorno GCs

Saturday, March 26, 2011 Unknown 0 Comments

Buon Giorno means Good Day in Italian. It's also the name of one of the best Italian restaurants here in Manila. I had my first Buon Giorno dining experience in their first branch at Tagaytay. The second one was at their branch at Pioneer Shaw Boulevard (now closed). And now, I just ate at their newest branch at The Rockwell Business Center beside Medical City along Ortigas. Three times I ate there, three times I went home satisfied.

I was invited with fellow bloggers to try out the food. We started off with some soup.

Zuppa Di Zucca Arrosto (Pumkin Soup) - P140

The pumpkin soup was a yummy concoction of roasted pumpkins and toasted croutons. It had a little of that grainy texture that I love and the bread only adds more texture to each spoonful. Other bloggers were able to try the Crema De Funghi (Mushroom Soup) - P170, which they said was just as good.

Caramel Apple - P140

I just can't help myself take a sip after another with this caramel apple drink. The sweetness was just right for me as is the price since it's placed in a huge mug.

Margherita Pizza - P265
Mare Pesto (Seafood Pesto Pizza) - P265

Both pizzas were fantastic. The crust was thin and crisp but not so much that it breaks apart when you hold it. I appreciate the fact that the pizza is overflowing with cheese and ingredients right to the edge. The pesto on the seafood pizza went extremely well with the different seafood bits.

I stared at my plate while we waited for the long line at the buffet table to subside.

We finally get in line.

Canneloni Spinaci - P294

The Canneloni is composed of tender bits of chicken and mortadella ham rolled in sheets of spinach pasta then smothered with tomato sauce and cheese. The flavors of the ingredients explodes in your mouth in a pasta symphony. I give this dish a 2 thumbs up.

Pescatore Alla Puttanesca (Spicy Seafood Pasta) - P308

The seafood pasta was only mildly spicy. Squid, clams, mussels, and shrimp covered the pasta along with some olives and herbs to give it that extra punch of flavor.

Pollo E Funghi (Chicken and Mushroom Risotto) - P302

For Those Who Favor Chicken, This Risotto Dish With Mushroom Make For An Extra Special Meal.

The main highlight of the night was the Wagyu beef. It's usually served as a slab of steak with mushroom sauce but for us, it was served as sukiyaki cut. The beef was tender and juicy given the great marbling it had. There were a lot of fats that surrounded the meat which gave it that immense beef flavor. The beef was already seasoned perfectly as it is but smothering a generous amount of the mushroom sauce only made the taste even better.

Molten Chocolate Cake - P168
Apple Strudel - P168
Cheesecake - P170
Chocolate-Pistachio Sans Rival - P207

For deserts, we were served Buon Giorno's best sellers. The best of the lot for me was the apple strudel. It was like a croissant-like pastry filled with apples, sugar and cinnamon served with vanilla ice cream on the side. A good way to end the meal!
