Double the Fun at Stella & Rocket Room

If there's one thing better than one delicious restaurant by the Raintree group, it's two. That's exactly the case at Bonifacio High Street with Stella and Rocket Room side by side allowing you to cross order anytime you wish. I hosted a post-Halloween bloggers event at Stella that also introduced three new dishes on the menu of Rocket Room. It was a spectacular treat to say the least.

We started off the night with the Crispy Pork Belly Chips (P250). I loved the fact that it's crunchy and it really went well with the spicy pinakurat vinegar. We actually brought the chef out the kitchen because of how tasty this dish is. He revealed that it actually takes a day to perfect the Crispy Pork Belly Chips. 

The Fire Roasted Truffled Mushroom Pizza (P395) is one of those dishes that are worth waiting for. It is topped off with porcini dust, fresh herbs and malacos ricotta. It is no surprise how this is one of their best sellers. It is great from the first bite up until the last.

We were introduced to three new Tapas at Rocket Room: Spicy Calamari, Chile Lime Chicken and Chorizo Nachos. Out of the three of them, I liked the Chile Lime Chicken the most and it is not that spicy too.

I noticed that Chef Kalel likes to put porchetta and chorizo in the menu of each Raintree Restaurant. I ain't complaining though. Stella's Porchetta (P395) is nicely presented and is perfect to pair with their cocktail drinks. The crunchy and tender pork belly roll is stuffed with double smoked bacon, fennel, herbs with rosemary sultana sauce on top.  The ingredients alone make this dish too tempting.

Another tempting and guilty dish is the Slow Roasted Truffled Beef Belly (P595). I love the fact that it is loaded with roasted mushroom and garlic confit with truffled cabernet gravy on top. The jamon serrano crisp is an excellent addition as it makes this dish a must try.

There are a lot of thing submerged in the Wood Fired "Callos a la Stela" (P495) and you won't find out some of them until you bring them up. The list includes Spanish chorizo, double smoked bacon, beef trip, Garbanzos, roasted bell peppers and roasted tomato. With the delicious sauce, it would be hard at first to figure out which is which but the important thing is that this dish is a meat lover's dream come true.

For some reason, I had a weird craving pizza on that day so I had the Pesto Seafood & Vegetables Pizza (P420) brought out. This dish is really healthy with all seafood (crab, prawns, salmon) and vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower) in it. The lemon on top with all the lemon cream made it even a bigger winner.

By the time everyone was full, out came the Spanish Chorizo Stuffed Prawns (6 pcs for P575). I was amazed that everyone still had room in their tummies for this. I thought it was creative how chorizo is put into each prawn. This has got to be my favorite dish of the night, hands down. I highly recommend trying this out or you don't know what you have been missing.

The term "Save the Best for Last" certainly proved true for this night as Stella's Wood Fired Chocolate Almond Cookie Dough (P195) is simply a dessert made in heaven.  One spoonful of the cookie and I suddenly did not know where I was. Montecado ice cream, salted caramel and rosemary pistachios are put on top of the cookie dough.
