All too soon, my escape to Pico de Loro comes to an end. But not before another comforting lunch by Chef Jayme at Pico Restaurant and Bar...
One last time to savor the ocean breeze and the wide range of comforting flavors at Pico de Loro before the drive home.
After a tour of Pico de Loro's private and secluded coves, we had a late lunch at Pico Restaurant and Bar. A pair of Pico Restaurant & Bar's Power Juices (P 170) were served, the Relax, a refreshing blend of apples, cucumber and mint; and the Purifier, a cool mix of cucumber, carrots, beets and greens. Healthy and refreshing, exactly what you need after an exciting tour around the coves of Hamilo Coast.
For starters, we go for the Gambas al Ajillo (P 550), sauteed shrimps with roasted garlic, paprika and fresh chili. Rich and garlicky, with just the right level of heat.
Then, the mains were served. Lengua con Setas (P 400), tender ox-tongue with mushroom gravy served with vegetables...
...and Mediterranean Chicken (P 545, half chicken), breaded with herbs and fried, served with rice and seasonal vegetables. Hearty and comforting, nothing like a satisfying lunch to cap a perfect escape at Pico de Loro.
Chef Jayme then rolls out some some of his desserts, including this sinfully indulgent Turtle Pie with ice cream on a cookie crust drizzled with chocolate syrup.
And the perfect escape is complete. Pico de Loro offers the complete package, with all the modern amenities and comforts while remaining in sync with nature, as well as great food. Just can't get any better than that.
One last look at the tranquil lagoon, and it was time for the drive home. Leaving Pico de Loro is never easy, and all too soon, the familiar traffic of the metro jolts us back to reality.
