Food blog: Gelatissimo

This is a very exciting gelato bar in Trinoma. Everyone I know who has been there only have the best words to say. I was intrigued myself.

The place is very nice. It’s located in the open area in the top floor of Trinoma, where Starbucks is. You won’t have a problem with seats that much. But if ever, you do, there are a lot of sitting places around the area outside.

Gelatissimo is so exciting inside. They have two main gelato ‘stations’:

The fruit ‘station’

and the very lovely and enticing chocolate ‘station’

We got ourselves tasting and testing different flavors. I loved the face that they also help us in choosing what we can have by helping us combine 2 flavors (maybe a marketing strategy to get us to buy more or not; whatever! still is hella good!). I also loved the fact that they actually encourage you to try and taste almost everything if possible.

 

I had the most extraordinary ice cream combination I’ve heard til now–Chili Chocolate & white chocolate. So lovely. The Choco chili is so interesting! You get the taste of rich chocolate, then after 3 seconds, the chili comes running after. This is the sort of flavor you need to pacify. That’s where the white choco comes in. My goodness! Such a lovely combination.

We also got the Veronese Chocolate & white chocolate combo which is, I think, more lovely than what I had. Veronese chocolate is made from what we know here as Ferrero chocolates. Sweet and rich and full of flavor. Not to mention the oozing serving that we had.

1 scoop for 110php is not bad! 2 for 160php is really not bad at all! This good? I’ll be back!

I seriously enjoyed Gelatissimo. I think I found my new dessert place.

Food blog: Bigoli

Ara and I went to Bigoli in Trinoma for lunch today. I wanted to try it since there are quite a number of people in the resto, I love Italian food, and…I wanted to give it a shot coz I’ve been seeing it every now and then in SM North.

For starters, we ordered this ‘platter’ of 6 onion rings, 2 mozzarella sticks, and 1 lonely Cheese-stuffed jalapeno with tomato dip. It’s 120php. A little pricey considering the serving size. But still, good! Especially the Jalapeno. I just wished the Jalapeno had some more spice to it. The mozzarella stick was fun to eat, with all the gooey cheese when chewed.

We also ordered this Chicken w/ Spaghetti al Pesto for 165php. It really looks good. Since Ara is a fan of pesto, she ordered this. But, I think, the same for all other dishes, the serving size is too small for me. But the chicken is good enough, savory and a little sweet. It’s dipped in a sauce after being fried, I guess. It’s not the crunchy type. The pesto pasta is like any other pesto pasta I’ve tasted. But don’t get me wrong, this one is good enough.

I ordered the Cream dory with Spaghetti Marinara for 145php. I loved the cream dory with the butter dip. The pasta tasted good. Although I just wished there was more (I could get much more pasta in another Italian resto for the same price). The Cream dory was crunchy, and soft inside. I liked it. Very subtle flavor in everything.

I loved the fact that the drinks were unlimited. I’m much of a drinker. The place was relaxing. Not much people in that side of Trinoma. I still enjoyed that meal though, even if I was not that satisfied with serving size. Bigoli!
