Be Our Guest @ Solomon’s

We have been wanting to eat here for the longest time and at last, we were given this opportunity. We were with our friends, Lex and his wife, who just lives nearby Solomon’s and first time to also dine here.

You can dine the al fresco style but we preferred to dine inside. AD was with us so it was a no-no to eat outside because it is just a walk away from the gate where there are cars (although the driveway was not that wide but even so). And of course, because it’s cooler inside.

Servers here are the CSB students who are on their practicum year taking up Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management so do not expect them to be professional servers. They would naturally be nervous and still polishing their serving skills. So please expand your patience with them.

Solomon Special Panini (P95). Nothing great. Still love the Cibo’s paninis.

Solomon Guest House-9

Fish Panini (P65). We didn’t order this but I guess, it tasted okay.

Solomon Guest House-10

Chicken Pesto Linguini (P75). We didn’t order this one…I guess this is the same pasta as the parm crusted fish below.

Solomon Guest House-13

Parm Crusted Fish (P95). Pan-fried fish served with pesto pasta and side salad. We liked the fish. Eat it while it is hot. The pasta was bland.

Solomon Guest House-15

The Solomon Crepe (P60). Peach and blueberry crepe topped with heavy cream and chocolate. Forget about their desserts!

Solomon Guest House-14

Choco-Lava Cake (P60). Chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream and strawberry sauce. Shouldn’t have ordered this too!

Verdict: Food served here are quite simple compared to what Endurun and International School for Culinary Arts & Hotel Management (ISCAHM) is operating. I would like to go back here (given the chance) every semester to try out their different menus and of course, to help the CSB students honing their skills. Animo La Salle! As you can see, price range are quite reasonable. Lex would even consider having lunch here again (since they are really, really near) if they are already bored with the food at home or for their visitors.

Suggestion: If you plan to dine here, better reserve as there are many people eating here. The time when we ate there, there was a lunch meeting so they had occupied most of the air-conditioned area thus, walk-ins were seated outside.

    The food at Solomons looks awesome, the Solomon crepes look particularly good.

    In fact, those crepes look so good I know exactly what I am making for our guests on Sunday.

    Solomon is a place to grow, I was a part of Solomons Batch 11. I had a Blast, because students where given the chance to conceptualize on all the decors, uniforms and the menu. We also did all the costings for the menu, and honestly the prices are very CHEAP! The major target market of Solomon are students, because of the location. We also had functions! Being part of the Solomon team! is truly memorable! :P BTW.. Everything in Solomon are done by students, from chopping, cleaning and pot washing! haha! who said that people from CSB are maarte? :P

    solomon is one of a kind. never can compare to any other establishments!

    aaaaaaand, the CSB students are very welcoming and hospitable. it is quite amazing how they offer their services because as starters, they are very professional and service-oriented.
