BUON GIORNO SHAW

I haven't been able to blog as often as I used to because I have been very busy lately...but...but thanks so much to all the very thoughtful friends out therewho take time to read this silly blog of mine and care enough to wonder why I haven't been blog crazy...or pergaps I haven't beenn eating? going out?....Well NO to all! I am very fine...doin well..eating well, most definitely too =) hahahaha

Well letme share a fave place that I have dined in the past weeks...Buon Giorno at Shaw. Yes...behind Puregold Supermarket lies a new...faux Serendra complex that houses several restaurants...one of which is Buon Giorno. I have tried and posted about the branch in Tagaytay...and very happy that now this place is within our reach!.

Bread Basket with Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar Dip

Well...they say ..the best things in life are FREE....this is FREE so its the best?! bwahahaah ;P

Cream of Pumpkin Soup
The Crema de Zucca of Cibo is much better as this one is a tad bit less creamy and less flavorful.


Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil Salad
The tomato slices were huge and fresh...but I was hoping for fresh mozzarella for this salad...as opposed to this one with I think are the kind used for pizzas. I love it id ithad more basil too...and maybe just a drizzle of olive oil...good balsamic.. =)

Smoked Salmon-Asparagus Risotto
Ooooh la-la!!! This baby is a winner. The arborio rice was cooked just right and gently infused with the flavor of the smoked Salmon..which we liked =)


We chose a decent red wine to go with our meal...luckily we picked the right one...as it tasted quite nicely =) Meet the Laughing Lizzard
A nice..medium bodied red wine.....well that's all I can say about it because I am no wine connoiseur but as Andrea Immer always say...go with what you palate likes =)



And to cap our meal....Chocolate Pecan Pie ala Mide

....how could that not be good? =)

i agree with the mozarella, if it aint fresh, they should have done that salad...

To add my opinion into the mix-- insalata caprese should never be made with pasteurized mozzarella-- it just doesn't work.
I'll tell you how pie can be not good-- try the one at Mexicali, hahaha!! :P
Well, at least some of the other dishes, like the risotto, were good :)
