We went to Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo, Rizal two Sundays ago upon the prodding of hubby’s friend and officemate. After visiting the six art galleries inside the museum, we headed straight to Café Rizal. Hubby’s friend said this restaurant serves good food, too.
These Fried Mozzarella Sticks were a great dinner starter. Crunchy on the outside and filled with gooey goodness of mozzarella inside. What made these appetizers more palatable was the peppermill dressing. We loved these!
Café Rizal serves oval thin crust pizzas, like this Cinco de Mayo. It’s a 5-cheese pizza with mozzarella, cheddar, cream cheese, Padano and Amichi. The dough was consistently soft and the taste of the different kinds of cheese blended perfectly with just the right amount of saltiness. The entire pizza was gone in no time. Lol!
This Callos, served with plain rice and ordered by hubby, combines beef, pork, ox tripe, garbanzos and chorizo. I wasn’t able to try this Callos, but judging by how hubby finished his meal, that is, without complaints, was enough indication that he liked it.
I was meaning to try their Baked Salmon Duo, but it wasn’t available that time, so I opted for Dr. JC’s Batanes Roulade instead. This is steamed fish dory with coconut milk, laing (inside) and prawn, served with garlic parsley rice. It was so creamy and rightly seasoned. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
If you happen to visit Pinto Art Museum, please do try the food offerings at Café Rizal. I’m sure you’ll also find pleasing items on their menu.
