Mesa, Mega Atrium

MESA is obviously gaining in the Filipino food scene. They have some brilliant concoctions that ultimately challenge your perspective on Filipino food, but nevertheless, they reflect the key aspects of the cuisine. Ultimate WIN I must say.

Crispy Tawilis with Mangga on a spoon- P135
The fish was crisp, the batter was great, it was REALLY fresh and not the slightest bit oily. Good stuff, brah. The contrast of the sweet sweet mango was fantastic against the fish. Each spoonful just made me want MORE. This dish is a MUST!

Laing 2 Ways- P150
The one on the left was cooked with coconut, it was creamy and sweet. On the other hand, the one on the right was salty. A little bit of both- that's how I had it. Even though I'm not a carb freak, I had it with rice. That's the only way to go!

Simply Grilled Giant Squid- P280
This dish was done so well it brought me back to the times where I'd go island hopping and we'd eat grilled seafood on banana leaves. Squid was fresh, cooked to perfection and basted with that sweet tangy soy!

Pan fried with Latik- P80/100g
The fish was SWEET, yes SWEET and oh so tender. It wouldn't be my dish of choice since it was oily with all that margarine, yes margarine oozing on the side. The latik young coconut went really well with the fish. Yet another interesting contrast!
