Silantro: Affordable, Delicious, and Bountiful

Beef Nachos are topped with cheese, tomatoes, and diced beef which had a sweet barbecue taste. This alone would be satisfying enough for two people.

The dips are refilled for free so you can enjoy the whopping heap of nachos without shortage on sauces.

The Paella was served a bit later. We were already full because we completely devoured the nachos already. This was neither a saucy or sticky type of paella. It had a sizzling taste to it (it was served on a hot plate). Chicken, shrimp, squid and mussels top the whole serving. There were also two fajita wraps.

It was lunchtime so we had to wait a while to be seated. And the paella was a bit late. But still, very affordable for the serving size and flavor.

C Lounge: Zomato foodie meetup!

A five star hotel lounge paired with a view of Manila bay and free food equals my first Zomato foodie meetup experience. This event gave me a ticket to try C-Lounge at Conrad Hotel.

Many food spots recently opened at the Mall of Asia area. I already tried a couple of restaurants in S'Maison, the retail section of Conrad Hotel. But this is my first time to officially set foot in Conrad Manila. C-Lounge is located at the third floor of the hotel, same floor as the lobby and reception area.

We were seated under this chandelier composed of seashell like ornaments.

Another area offered this starry sky-like wall and ceiling.

I'm not really sure what this area was. I guess this is supposed to be a smoking area judging from ashtray-like structure (not in photo). That group in the upper right of the photo is our Zomato foodie meetup table.

Finger Food

Prawn Tempura with wasabi mayo

Combing the love popularity of tempura and well cooked prawns, this was the resounding crowd favorite.

Tuna Rice Bowl

If you feel a need to "fill-up", then this dish could be your order. This was the only item with rice served among the food on our table since the menu mostly have snack items.

Jamon Serrano and Mozzarella Toastini

I have always loved the combination of ham and cheese. This was good, but nothing too special.

Pita Chips with Hummus and Carrots

Their version of hummus is zesty and not too garlicky. More pita chips would have been appreciated.

Steamed Chinese Butterfly Bun with Honey, Barbequed Pork, and Cucumber Pickles

I personally liked this one too. The sauce complements the sweet and salty barbecue pork slices.

Afternoon Tea Sets
The Unique

The Traditional

Well, my photos don't do justice to the presentation of these sets. The pili nut tart, of the traditional set is my favorite. real nutty flavor,


Gotta have a taste of the poptails! Quirky in presentation, these interesting mixes can accompany anyone who wants to unwind or have fun.

The place and ambiance is good for catching up or relaxing with a view of the sea. It's not exactly a place where you would have a full meal. I would rather have dinner at one of the restaurants in S'Maison.

But with great views, I would spend afternoon tea with friends while watching the sunset and enjoying The Traditional tea set [even though the cloudy weather hindered the golden sun from painting the sky that afternoon].

Playful poptails are also here for those who want to enjoy the night lights.
