Absolutely fantabulous. i have been to the other LM branches in the country and i was happy the moment i saw the signage and seeing how “airy” and open the concept is, and how close to home. Well-lighted place, ample spaces between tables cheery staff that dont hesitate to explain each item on the menu and homely decor. I was promised of an eclectic take on the usual Pinoy food so Let me walk you through my gastro-fiesta happiness:
Starters: • #Ukoy: This is a surprise. Not the usual ukoy but beautiful stings of #sweetpotatos bundled loosely to add height and deep fried with pieces of chunky shrimps here and there. The natural sweetness of the potato dipped into that spicy vinegar is a winner.
• #Gambas: Half a dozen pieces of peeled prawns in garlic and olive oil paired with freshly toasted, soft melt-in-your-mouth #pandesal / Pinoy rolls is just soooo good.
* Local chicken #inasal: #Grilledchicken to perfection, still very juicy and that subtle marinade that is just perfect with the tangy soy sauce dip. * Pritong isda: Yes it shouldve been just a simple fried fish, right? But nooo! It is #filleted #tilapia, with a somewhat curried sauce and a side of that sweet potato deep fried beauty. This is one i love - pleasing to the eyes and happy in my tummy.
#Lecheflan, #ube #icecream, #dulcedeleche and #polvoron crumble: Best surprise ever to perfectly cap that sumptuous meal. A glorious plated Filipino sweets beautifully captivated my senses. The leche flan is not too sweet to overpower the others, the ube ice cream is smooth, the dollops of dulce de leche and i think pureed mango (?) balances the tastes and that crumble added that distinct different texture in the whole plate. Absolutely gorgeous.
Yep, they did delivered the promise of “something new” - they have practically revamped the Pinoy common cuisine into something classier without compromising the taste. Well done! 👍🏻👏🏻 @mylittlemanila #foodieInUAE #sunshineEatsOut #Pinoycuisine #UpgradedPinoy #FilipinoFood #manila #foodie #wheninDubai @dubaioutletmall
