Dinner at Don Henrico's, SM Mall of Asia

The last time Daniel was in the Philippines, we had dinner at Don Henrico's, a comfortable looking restaurant with a sense of warmth to its interior. Famous to its Italian food that perfectly suits the Filipino palate, this casual Italian restaurant is conveniently located at the Ground Level of South Entertainment Mall in Mall Of Asia Complex

The menu offers a collection of contemporary Italian dishes as well as seafood and meat platters for sharing. We started our meal with antipasti of Petite Mozzarella sticks (Php180.00) (Deep-fried mozzarella cheese coated in special Italian-seasoned breading; served with their marinara sauce) which was wonderful. I think this is exceptionally good. 

I’d be honest, the reason we end up dining here is because of this Chicken Ala Buffalo (Php390.00 for 3pcs), I have read tons of good reviews online. I adored the harmony of flavors with the marinated chicken coated with tangy BBQ sauce and the creamy ranch dipping sauce. I can honestly say I've never eaten a buffalo chicken as good as this one. This is definitely a must try! 

Their Fettuccine Alfredo (Share: Php240.00) was also wonderful with minced garlic sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley that was ever so yummy. Heads up, I'm somewhat biased when it comes to pasta.

We had Fudge Brownies ala Mode (Php160.00) for our dessert. The brownie is made with real chocolate, topped with a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream, covered with hot fudge had a good flavor but was cooked at too high a temperature – so it melted. Nevertheless, it was still yummy.

Italian (…pasta….pizza) happens to be one of my favorite cuisines and I happen to be a little bit biased over the same. However only a few places have registered in my mind and this definitely happens to be one of them. The service was relatively decent considering we were there during dinner time (peak hour). I’d say it was sort of friendly and there was an authentic thoughtfulness to it that showed that the staff really cared for our comfort. Good food, great ambiance, very fair prices.
