Food Trip #20: Pablo’s Steaks & Crabs

Upon Paolo Sunglao’s invitation for a Food Tasting Session

I immediately said yes and booked my Saturday evening just for them

So together with Kuya Avel, we made sure that we’re going to be ready for this gastronomic feast

Pablo’s Steaks & Crabs is a spin-off of the highly successful Ranchero Grill & Restaurant

If Ranchero catered to the middle market, Pablo’s was set up for high-end diners

But this time around, they are shifting gears and making their menu affordable

For starters, we first tried their Chili Cheese Fries (175.00)

This appetizer will give the Nacho’s Feast a run for its money

The potato fries remained crispy despite being “topped” by generous servings of cheese melt

The ground beef toppings was so tasty that it already felt like a full meal

Good thing there was the Cream of Mushroom Soup (75.00)

Its familiar smell and taste makes this one hearty “umay”-killer

I loved the way it was cooked because of the soup’s consistency

This is such a versatile soup that you can even add chicken shreds to it

And then the feast started coming in – Santa Fe Steak (325.00) was the first to be reviewed

Everyone knows that U.S. Angus Beef are expensive

Making it affordable to many is probably the best thing that Pablo’s Steaks & Crabs has done

Santa Fe Steak is topped with melted cheddar cheese

The tender meat makes like eating cheese burger with an attitude

Then it was Shrimp Scampi with Angel Hair Pasta (225.00) to break the meat monotony

If you think that Pablo’s is all about steaks and crabs only

Then you just have to try this viand and be an instant fan

I love shrimp scampi prepared as pizza topping or on a sizzling platter

This one does not disappoint either because it simply is one superb pasta treat

The pasta is cooked al dente and the shrimps are so plump, tender and juicy

Next was Osso Buco Milanese (295.00), prepared like adobo

This is actually local beef shank available in your favorite supermarkets

Pablo’s gave it a magical twist and presto — you’ve got a viand fit for a prince

I would have mistaken it for Angus Beef because it sure tasted like one

The vegetable sidings helped balanced the sweet adobo flavor which really tasted great

As finale they served the Asian Style Boneless Rib-eye Steak (310.00)

We were back to certified Angus beef and I must say that this one’s my favorite

I threw out every bit of healthy pretensions I had that night

I just savored this melt-in-the-mouth offering with gusto

It may be swimming in butter but what the heck — it’s worth every calorie gained!
