Food Trip #38: Cafe Adriatico @ Mall of Asia

After a spirit-filled conference of Santo Nino Devotees in Tagaytay City

We found ourselves navigating the oh-so-huge Mall of Asia

MOA was brimming with people and all the popular fastfood joints were full

We were tired and famished and just wanted to sit down and relax

We found ourselves right smack Cafe Adriatico and decided to just go for it

I’ve been a fan of CA ever since my first visit in their Ermita Branch

And when they opened in Cebu, I became a regular habitue

The waiter who attended to us was very welcoming and allowed us to charge our cellphones

The ambience was very cozy and the glass panels gave the place a wider feel about it

Only one other table was occupied probably because it was too early for dinner

We were served a basket of kropek (shrimp crackers) while we await our orders

I opted for their Arroz Caldo with Tokwa’t Baboy (195.00)

I find the price quite steep but this rice porridge reminded me of my childhood

I rate it high for taste not only of the porridge itself but also the chicken meat which was very tender

And with toasted garlic and onions as toppings, what else could go wrong?

Served with tofu and pork slices in mildly spiced soy sauce dressing

I must say that this is one unforgettable viand by Cafe Adriatico

My sister ordered their Famous Pancit Palabok (245.00)

Topped with generous quantity of shrimp, squid, pork cracklings and hard boiled egg

I expected it to be really awesome and all but I was not floored at all

I’m not saying it’s bad but with a price like that I expected to get my money’s worth

Well at least it’s safe to say that Cafe Adriatico has perfected this viand

Now if only they consider adjusting the price downwards

Jun ordered their  Baked Macaroni (170.00)

Nothing special about this classic pasta meal

It’s cooked perfectly that it somehow tasted like your regular fastfood meal

My niece can cook a better version of this
