Dulcinea at SM Megamall

After strolling at SM Megamall, we went to Dulcinea to have dinner. It was actually my first time to eat there. Because our son wasn’t really in the mood to eat, hubby and I ordered two dishes only to make sure that no food gets wasted. We settled for Callos ala Madrileña and Salmon al Ajillo, plus a pitcher of Tropical Fruit Shake.

Callos ala Madrileña, Php420.00

Because hubby is a certified Callos lover, he didn’t miss the opportunity to try Dulcinea’s Callos ala Madrileña. The ox tripe was tender and the sausage slices heightened the flavor of this dish. Hubby said he preferred a thicker sauce for his Callos, though. I also think it needed a bit more salt.

Salmon al Ajillo, Php550.00

Salmon al Ajillo is pan-seared salmon fillet with garlic-and-chili oil, served with mashed potato and roasted artichokes. I’m not really a mashed potato fan, but I ate it just the same and found it nice. I loved those roasted artichokes, too, but would have wanted more of them on my plate. The succulent, well-seasoned salmon fillet was also to my liking. Overall, however, the serving was so small for the price.

Tropical Fruit Shake, Php195.00

Having eaten at Dulcinea with his officemates before, hubby suggested I try their Tropical Fruit Shake. It’s a combination of banana, pineapple, papaya, apple and mango. We ordered 1 pitcher that we intended to share among the three of us, but hubby and I ended up drinking everything. Our son didn’t like it so much because he’s not really fond of fruits. But I loved it! It was so cool, fruity and refreshing! I’ll definitely have this again when we revisit Dulcinea.

Dulcinea seems to have a lot of exciting food offerings on their menu, so I really want to go there again.

Deep Dips Foodstuff: Spicy Tinapa in Tomato Sauce and Tomato Eggplant Pate

I received Deep Dips Foodstuff Spicy Tinapa in Tomato Sauce and Tomato Eggplant Pate as tokens from a blog event I attended last month. These are Pinoy gourmet products created by Chef Arnold Bernardo of Lick the Spoon Gourmet Foods, Inc. I regretted not having tried them at home sooner because after I’ve had my first dibs on them, I couldn’t stop myself from having more. They’re so good!

Tomato Eggplant Pate and Spicy Tinapa in Tomato Sauce, Php120.00/10 oz. bottle

Hubby and I first tried Spicy Tinapa in Tomato Sauce. Here, the lowly tinapa (smoked fish) is made uniquely exciting with the tangy taste of tomato, the creamy goodness of cheese and the spiciness that will make you want to eat more. Hubby and I liked this very much.

Spicy Tinapa in Tomato Sauce

To be honest, I thought I wouldn’t enjoy the Tomato Eggplant Pate as much as I did the Spicy Tinapa in Tomato Sauce, but I was wrong. The combination of eggplant, tomato puree, olives, anchovy, extra virgin olive oil, cheese and spices were simply too good to resist.

Tomato Eggplant Pate

Both products are perfect for crackers, crostini or pasta dishes, but I discovered that you can pair them with rice, too. That’s what I did all the time, and all those times, I ate more than usual. Lol!
