Restaurant Pia Y Damaso at Greenbelt 5

One of the best decisions I made this week was to go back to Damaso for dinner. It's one of my favourite restaurants in Manila, if only for their creative food titles and homey ambiance - cause I think food is ordinarily yummy Filipino, but overall presentation makes my feel like the food is extra delicious! =)

Had dinner with my brother, and later with Marion, which gave me the (evil) excuse to taste more of their food!

Tubig ni Maria Clara (Maria Clara's water): fresh cucumber juice, ginger and citrus water for Php 300

Pumpkin wonton ravioli: stuffed wonton with roasted pumpkin and garlic sauteed in browned butter with toasted walnuts for Php 175

Chunky beef soup with fried onions: caramelized onions, beef short ribs, carrots and water chestnuts with crisp french fried onion rings for Php 300

I forgot! Essentially this is crispy chicken skin. Bad! =P
Shortribs rioja: beef shortribs braised in red wine, celery, onions, carrots, tomatoes, shitake mushrooms, fresh bay leaves with rosemary potatoes for Php 450

Binagoonan with okra: braised stew of pork with homemade fermented shrimp paste "alamang bagoong" and tomatoes for Php 300

Bibingka waffle: with Malagos goat's cheese, quezo de bola, salted egg and coco jam for Php 150

Ensaimada quezo de bola with tsokolate Php 150

Reminds me of Mary Grace Ensaymada (Hi Raffy!)

We had to ask the waiter how to eat this. This is the way!
