I can’t forget the time we ate at Lolo Dad’s in Malate. Boy, I was so embarassed because it was a far cry from what I told my now ex-BF that Lolo Dad’s serve great grilled food. I was even proud that I found a restaurant w/c he didn’t know about. I do remember that one set menu cost around P1500 and that time, P1500 was too much! What we did was just to order one set menu and order from the ala carte menu so we can have a taste of their other dishes. The visit was the time when we were still dating or was it “just friends” stage and he was not yet blogging at that time?
I forgot if our attire were appropriate, but I guess we were dressed fine since we were not refused. HB kept on teasing me all night long. From then on, I never forgot Lolo Dad’s and sadly, we were not able to visit the place again until now…but in a different branch and different set-up…Lolo Dad’s Brasserie at 6750. We do hope they’ll stay longer than any of the restaurant that has been there so we can go there more than once.
Let us not wait any longer, and let you in on what we have eaten with our dear friend, Cai.
“Only for the Rich” Salad (P1,650 +SC). Combination of Diver Scallops, Lobster, Seared Duck Liver, Jamon Serrano and Cured Salmon with Mesclun greens in Pomegranate and Molasses dressing.
I want to be contaminated by this salad….Only for the Rich…positive vibes coming thru my door! Ahhh! Only for the rich! Come to me!
I loved almost everything in the salad ~ from the seafoods to the greens! Yummy! Each seafood was perfectly seasoned and grilled that every bite was an ooohhhh and aahhhh (and quickly, our fork is touching the plates to get some more)! The dressing was just too overwhelming. I thought it was supposed to be on the sweet side since I saw that it was with molasses but then, I don’t know the taste of pomegranate which made me curious about the salad too! I read that sometimes it would either be sweet or sour…so, I guess what we got was sour that made our dressing on a sour (strong) sweet (mild) tone. Even if we ate the greens with the dressing with the seafood, the dressing still overpowered the combined taste.
