This year, I decided to hold my birthday salubong along with my blogger group at Todd English Food Hall and what a great idea that was. There is nothing like bonding with ze bloggerkada over good food while having awesome conversations. Of course, lets not forget that it takes place at Taguig's number one restaurant. It is no secret age is not exactly my favorite topic so out came the food and that was what we talked about all night.
The 3 appetizers we got were awesome which is what everything was in Todd English. Everything was simply magnificent from the interiors down to the service of the staff. It is great how all 3 of them contained seafood which makes them a bit healthy. It is definitely a MUST to sprinkle the lemon onto the Frito Misto for that complete taste as it was a mistake I made in the past to not do that when lemon is present. From the looks of it, it is hard to find the lobster in the Lobster Guacamole but when you do, you will be glad you did. The Tuna Tartare has got to be the most photogenic dish of the night.
Bronx Bomber, Fig & Prosciutto and Chorizo & Shrimp
Todd English's flatbread are a country favorite and I quickly found out why when we indulged on their 3 best sellers. My favorite one is the Chorizo & Shrimp as it combined the most popular meat topping with the most popular seafood topping. What more can you ask for?
The two salads did their part in making sure the vegetarians were satisfied properly. Unfortunately, nobody was a vegetarian but they did enjoy their salad as I am not a salad fan. It is not because I don't like the taste but it is because I would want to save my appetite for the main courses.
The pork dumpling had ponzu reduction and it is what sets it apart from dumplings of other restaurants. I will definitely try the other dumplings on my next visit as this one gets two thumbs up from me.
Brooklyn Meatball Spaghetti
The meatballs were big and sawft with a capital W in the Brooklyn Meatball Spaghetti and the red sauce is one of those things that will make you come back here for the pasta. It made me want to try the other pasta dishes at Todd English as everything just reads perfection in this place.
Wagyu Fried Rice
Everyone was watching their diet by not eating much rice for dinner but the Wagyu beef strips were just too hard to resist. This fried rice has got to be one of the best fried rice dishes of all time. I have to give compliments to the chef but I'm sure a lot of people already did that to the legendary Chef Todd English.
Miso Glaze Salmon
TE Pork Chop
Steak and Marrow
The heavy meat dishes did their part in getting us full enough to become sleepy. Both meat were tender since we are talking about world renowned chef Todd English here, you can only expect nothing but the best and we got just that.
My favorite dish of the night has got to be the Truffle Fungi flatbread. My eyes lit up when I saw on the menu it combines truffle vinaigrette and mixed mushrooms. Despite being the last main course dish served for the night, it was still devoured until there was nothing left.
There were actually mouth-watering desserts that came out but the battery of my phone died. I will leave it up to the rest of the team to share their wonderful experience about the desserts of Todd English.
Thanks to everyone who celebrated my birthday with me and of course Todd English for making me have a memorable one on my special day. We now know why you are the number one restaurant in Taguig.
