T-HOUSE: FOUR-COURSE DINNER

From the moment we walked-in, we felt like we were in a classic jazz bar. In-house pianist and a flutist playing with undeniable light jazz feel serenading the guests.



The ambiance was very intimate and romantic without being too stuffy. But sometimes we couldn't avoid good eavesdropping on private conversations at this cute tiny restaurant. We were given a complimentary bread before we started our dinner. We enjoyed our four-course meal from a selection of set menu, served with two choices of soup with bread stick, salad, entree and the dessert of the day. Our server was very attentive.

To illustrate the point, here's what I chose for my Four-Course Meal:
First Course - Two choices of soup:
Fresh Tomato rich and tart made with secret mix of herbs for an explosion of flavor &
Carrot & Coriander, smooth and creamy served with yoghurt for a surprisingly clean finish.
Second Course – Salad:
Tuna Citrus Salad with olives, white cheese and roasted capsicum vinaigrette.
Third Course - Entree:
Fillet of Fish a la Crème Saffron, hearty gourmet grilled marinated fish in freshly picked dill dressing served with zesty saffron cream with capsicum and shitake mushroom.
Fourth Course:
The dessert of the day


For his four-course meal , hubby chose the following:
First Course - Two choices of soup:
Fresh Tomato, rich and tart made with secret mix of herbs for an explosion of flavor &
Carrot & Coriander, smooth and creamy served with yoghurt for a surprisingly clean finish.
Second Course – Salad:
Grilled vegetable Salad, with feta cheese and balsamic vinaigrette.
Third Course - Entree:
Roast Rack of Pork with Caramelized Honey Onions flavorful and robust pork ribs served with caramelized honey onions over roasted garlic mashed potatoes.
Fourth Course:
The dessert of the day


The truth was, I asked my husband if we can exchanged our salad. And he quickly nodded. I must say, the Tuna Citrus Salad & Fillet of Fish a la Saffron dishes were perhaps the most impressive of all.

Too bad, we didn't had the free personalized mini-cake with candle. I was really looking forward and wanted it on the side of my husband's dessert plate! During one of our e-mail conversations, I had mentioned about my hubby's birthday and revealed to them that we're the "shy type" of people. Maybe they got me wrong. What we just don't want is to be the center of attention. We have this introverted disposition that generally prefers to hide from the spotlight. But that doesn't mean we don't appreciate surprises or we don't like to receive little gifts. WE LOVE IT! They could have just given us this present surreptitiously. hahaha... Anyways, hubby and I still enjoyed every bit of our meal. We both agreed that the food satisfied us and delighted our appetite. I would say that the food is definitely unique in its flavor and overall it was worth the price. We'll be going here again when we get the chance.

During our e-mail exchanges, they also offered us their "Wine & Cheese" package (Php 400.00/net per person). An eat-all-you can and drink-all-you can of White and Red Wine plus cheese. But we politely declined the offer since we don't drink wines or any alcoholic beverages at all.

After a hearty meal, we proceeded to walk down the dim-lighted street outside T-House. We were trying to take photos of the pension and inn nearby but we were unable to capture some nice shots.:( And here's one crappy picture that we took...
