Tito Chef Is An Awesome Chef

I don't know why but every time Friday classes come to an end, I feel like my appetite goes from "I can totally go on a water diet" to "Feed me before I scratch the lining of your stomach!" Voracious is the more appropriate term to describe my hunger on Friday evenings. Luckily, my aunt and uncle are always there to calm this food monster down because goodness knows I turn into a mad woman when I'm feeling ravenous. My uncle, who is very supportive of my food blogging venture, told me a week in advance that we'd be dining at this place called "Tito Chef" in B.F. I wasn't aware of this restaurant (since it sounded new), but I felt my ears move...Dumbo-style (mind you, my ears aren't as big as his), because anywhere my uncle and aunt take me always leaves my tummy happy. I was excited. When we pulled up to the parking space of the restaurant, I noticed that it was full. Surprisingly, a man offered to park the car for my mum while we scurried to the entrance. I definitely wasn't expecting valet service. Upon entering the restaurant, I immediately felt like I was entering my own living room and dining room merged into one. Tito Chef restaurant, the brainchild of Chef Menoy Gimenez, was cozy, well-lit and the interior wasn't cluttered. Since there were 7 of us, we were brought to a room that accommodates a group of 8 people and boy did I feel oh so special! It was like our own private room!

What really caught my attention were the seats. They had wheels. That means two things: one, expect a noise-free meal except for the sounds you hear from the clanking of the utensils and two, I felt like I was flying. Well, more like, gliding.

Calamari with Kimchi Mayonnaise (P240)

This was the first thing that was served to us and my cousins and I didn't hesitate to reach for the bowl. I've tried fried calamari that was either too soggy or too thick.  This one though had just the right amount of salt and crunch to it! 

Fruit Melange & Candied Walnuts Salad (P 220)
I don't eat vegetables. So imagine the look on my face when my mum told me that I HAD to eat the salad. Before I could even say anything, my mum had already placed a small serving of the salad onto my plate. It had slices of bananas, strawberries, grapes and walnuts so technically it was more of a fruit salad. (That's just me trying to convince myself that I didn't actually have a salad.)

Water Buffalo Cheese Salad (P240)

Truffled Mushroom Soup Puree (P 135)

Mushroom soup at its finest.
Cedar Grilled Salmon (P375)
Caviar-topped mashes potatoes

Salmon gets its close-up. Look at the juices on the wood.

                                               Rosemary Grilled Lamb Steak (P350)

Osso Buco Milanese (P395)
Beef shank stew with saffron infused risotto Milanese, gremolata and spring vegetables.            
The 300 (P 795)

This dish should be called The 795. *laughs* I love me a good steak, especially when I'm hungry. This US Rib Eye Steak coupled with sour cream mashed potatoes was my ticket to a happy meal. My favorite part of the steak was of course, the fat. And the mashed potatoes were creamy, light and fluffy. 

My favorite part...DESSERT! 

Strawberry Shortcake (P95)
The ballerina in this cake spread - light, dainty and pretty!

Tiramisu (P165)

Espresso dipped cookies layered with Marsala flavoured Mascarpone cheese & chocolate. Perfect for coffee-lovers.

Nutella Sansrival (P110)
Nutella is the queen of sweet sandwich spreads (along with local, crunchy peanut butter). Imagine nutella buttercream tucked into layers of toasted almond sansrival cake.

Chocolate Citrus Gateau (P120)
This has got to be my favorite cake OF ALL TIME. I didn't think I would enjoy a sponge cake soaked in citrus flavor because the chocolate-orange tandem never really appealed to me. I can seriously eat this with my bare hands. *laughs*

My cousins Pau, Patch and yours truly
You see these happy faces? We're not just posing for the camera, we have our "This restaurant is definitely worth going back to" faces on!
