So it’s 3AM and I just finished packing for a trip to Shanghai later and can’t seem to doze off so I turned on my computer and blog about a series of unfortunate events turned awesome that happened earlier. Out of 6 things I was suppose to accomplish earlier, only half were completed. One important thing I didn’t get to do is get some Chinese moolah, which I was told by the very friendly people at the Southwinds Travel Agency to acquire before leaving (hello there Ms. Cookie ^_^) . Two of the money changers I went to had no Yuans, so decided to get dinner first and drop by Ayala to try my luck.
My friends Marco and Atty. Ethy had originally planned that we go to this two-week old Busay restaurant last Tuesday but everyone got tangled with work and all, so ’twas postponed this coming weekend. But since I will not be here this weekend and got some time to kill, headed to Busay and tried Delice Recipes offerings.
The road going up to Delice was really dark at that moment and was relieved as my car’s head lights caught the sign “Delice Parking Area.” I immediately made a right and parked. It was just a yellow light across the street that seemed to give brightness in the area. Then Delice’s waiter walked towards me, informed me that there’s a power outage. “But there’s food right?,” I inquired hungrily. haha. And was glad when he replied, “Yes sir, we have!” Well, I took an effort of driving up to Busay so I better try the restaurant’s offerings out.
All the waiters and waitresses were accommodating and welcoming.I was then escorted to my table and seated at the porch where I get to see a stunning view of Cebu lighted up for the night. And then it started to drizzle! Haha! And so I transferred to a table inside, near the bar.
The al fresco area/porch seats around 20, with 5 square tables (seats 4 each). And the function area has 2 long tables, seating a total of 20 people. Then the bar area has several tables as well, and a staircase to the bed and breakfast rooms.
Ordered the Asian Salad and Chicken Parmigiana. Asian Salad (Price 260php). Mixed Greens, shredded carrots, sesame seeds, kani and nori in Asian dressing. Though I expected the asian dressing to be either a bit tangy or having a hint of sesame oil taste, but just got a whiff of sweet vinegar. The sesame seeds gave it a nutty taste and texture which I liked. The Chicken Parmigiana, 280php, breaded chicken fillet with parmesan cheese, with the special Delice tomato sauce, topped with a blend of gruyere, cheddar and mozzarella cheese. It reminded me of a four cheese pizza but with breaded chicken as the crust in a bed of garlic rice. Yum!
Buuurp! I enjoyed the Chicken Parmigiana and would definitely go back to try out other stuff on the menu when I get back. And I promise to post some restaurant photos on our next visit.
Well, I wasn’t able to get my money changed to Yuans in Ayala, but found out that had some 100++ Yuans left from my last trip to Shenzhen. I guess I’ll have to get the rest of the Chinese tender I need when in Shanghai. Wish me a safe trip and hope you enjoyed reading this post! 😉
UPDATE: March 30, 2014
Right after being treated like a royal at Cafe Tiala, I picked up my my blogger friends Marco and Jem at Asiatown IT Park and went joy riding to Busay which ended up with a carbo and sugar loading pre-dinner at Delice. As promised , I’d be back and post more photos of Delice Recipes. Here’s the update! 🙂
Ordered the Pancake Set and Quattros Leches in a jar this time. The pancake set came with two thick, three strips of bacon, 2 sunny side ups, sided with jam and butter-tasting margarine. Thought the pancakes were too thick, that it was a bit dry on the inside. But the Quattros Leches we enjoyed so much. It was soft, rightfully sweet and creamy!
We suggest you go there at around 5PM and enjoy how the sky turns from sunshiny blue to dramatic rays of orange. Then at night, be stunned by the relaxing view of the city lights.
