I promised Mr. S & Cay that if we toured Cebu City, I would take them to Casa Verde for some of their famous Brian's Ribs, and I was craving for their delicious Bliss & Mushrooms... so we walked from Hotel Elizabeth Cebu to the Ayala Terraces branch of Casa Verde. Good thing the hotel was only 5 minutes away by foot form the ball. BAD Thing: The Ayala branch did NOT have Bliss & Mushrooms on the menu, + they ran out of Brian's Ribs. NO!
Soaked and Super Hungry!
The Resolution: Take a Cebu Cab to the V. Ramos location, only to have him drop us about 100 meters away because he HAD TO EAT. And it was pouring out so Mr. S made makeshift umbrellas from cardboard for our little flooded run to the restaurant.
Mr. S & I shared our little carton, but clearly, I got the bigger half.
Since my first post on this, they were so excited to try this restaurant for the food, and the affordable prices.
The Best Sampler
Potato Skins, Buffalo Wings & Mozzarella Sticks. The Potato Skins looked tame, but was hiding bits of bacon under the sour cream and chives as a surprise!
Bliss & Mushrooms
I was craving for the Bliss & Mushrooms, basically beef tenderloin and mushroom slices with a creamy mushroom sauce. I preferred the original plating better than this compartmentalized one.
The Infamous Brian's Ribs
My angle was just off, but this was one big SLAB of pork ribs in sweet, tangy BBQ sauce. Mr S was so happy to see his expectations met and exceeded, and Cay wasn't sure if she should share some or eat it all. And for P168 ($3.73), this meal is definitely a steal.
The Ending: Poof! Bones clean!
I guess running in the rain burns a lot of calories, because we inhaled our meal and had room for dessert when we got back to the hotel: Belgian Lace Cookies. Ready to Rumble for the upcoming Sinulog Festival!
