Crisostomo: Turn of the Century Filipino Dining

Thursday, August 23, 2012

Crisostomo is one of my favourite restaurants when it comes to Filipino cuisine. They come up with exciting names in their menu. They include some of the popular places, people, events or even the characters and lines in some of Dr. Jose Rizal books in their menu. I can say Filipinos can really relate with the food. We visited the Crisostomo at Resorts World Manila, Newport City, Pasay. Their food ranges to 200-900php.

**Sorry for the images I have doubled my copyright text because I accidentally replaced the images with the wrong ones. Haha It’s not that noticeable. I hope you will enjoy the following images.

Buko Lychee and Fresh Buko
My drink is the fresh buko. Too bad it’s not that cold. Hahaha It is literally fresh. As you can see on the photo above. BUKO! hahaha The other one is buko lycee, it is a shake mix with buko and lychee fruit and milk and ice.

Lengua Laruja
Lengua Laruja is an Ox’s tougue. Would you dare taste it? You should because it is on my long list of my favourite food. It’s very creamy and I love mushrooms. You would not mind that it is from an Ox's tougue.

KKK Barbecue
KKK bbq is my sister’s order. Kinda lame right? Hahaha (Yan lang yata lam kainin nyan tska chicken. Hoho kidding.) It is just a typical barbeque with achara on the side.

Pandan Plain Rice
The rice. Bow. hehehe

Avenida the perfect combination of prawn and coconut milk. I am not a fan of prawn but this is delicious.

Lechon Paksiw (forgot their term for this food in their menu. hehe)
Lechon Paksiw is a little long process before we taste it. I mean it came late on our table. It looks appetizing, right? But for me, there is nothing special with this lechon paksiw. I expected too much because of the lechon displayed in front of their restaurant. I thought the lechon would be a little crispy, not! It's so saggy.

Half Mateo/ Half Vicente
Mateo consist of Hamonado, Lucban, Vigan and Cabanatuan longganissa while Vicente consists of Laguna Kesong Puti, Tomato and Basil. As you can see, the toppings of the pizza is so Filipino. It's good. Something different from the ordinary pizza. Try this.

I love the presentation of Iday. It is suman with fondue. Suman made it classy. Cool, right? This is the only time I discovered that suman is a good combination with chocolate. Yummy!

Are you convince to eat here at Crisostomo? Try it now! haha The menu that I have been eying here is the bistek tagalog or Bistek Pelaez but here's the catch. It's worth 900++. hahaha Expensive for a one dish, according to the menu, it is U.S. Beef Angus. If you know me, I am a sucker for beef dishes and beef steak is really my favorite dish. Maybe one day, I will come back and order it. If that day comes, will blog it as soon as possible. It will take a little longer I think. hahahaha If you are interested to dine, see the information below.
