Review: Asombroso, Quezon City
Hola. Cómo estás. (Hello! How Are You?) The most common greetings in Spanish. I honestly had to Google it to make sure that I got the right translation. Maybe you are wondering why do I have to do this and write some basic Spanish phrases. It is because we are going to have a spanish language lesson for free. Just kidding! Yay! We received an invitation from Asombroso to try out their Spanish menu. Asombroso in spanish means amazing. (Yeah! Thank you so much, oxforddictionaries.com).
Let’s start our Spanish gastronomic adventure and see if Asombroso is really an amazing cuisine when it comes to foodie like you and me.
This is the Clams and Mussels in White Wine Sauce (P150). I enjoyed eating the green mussels. One of the nights that I had to master my self-control because I had to share it with the other bloggers.
Pulpo Ala Gallega (P160). Yeah! Gallega in spanish means octopus. 🐙 When we had dinner in Asombroso, I didn’t know that the dish they served is made of octopus. I find it a bit exotic! I already tried crocodile meat and tamilok (silk worm). Now, I find it exotic and I don’t know why. Weird, right??
It was Aldous who mentioned to me via Viber that Pulpo Ala Gallega is an octopus dish. (I had to Google it again for the correct spelling!) The Chef from Asombroso gave the name of the dish she served and maybe I’m just not listening attentively because I’m so hungry. This specific dish contains some potatoes. And I loved the potatoes for this dish! Flavorful because of the herbs and spices. Perfecto!
The Paella Balls (P180). For me, it was interesting because of the shape.
More interesting is the hanging light bulbs. The ambiance of Asombroso is amazing just like the spanish meaning of it.
