And don't forget to dunk a piece of the baguettine in that rich garlic parsley butter...
Buffalo Balls (P 315), crisp chicken meatballs served with a rich blue cheese sauce. The classic Buffalo dish without the bones, with tender and juicy chicken and a crisp outer layer. A subtle and refreshing heat from the spices add to the flavor, balanced by a rich blue cheese sauce. Great with another round of drinks.
Blue Cheese Salpicao (P 525), US Tenderloin with mushrooms, chili, and blue cheese sauce. Another classic with Chef Katrina's creative twist. The tender beef and mushrooms are complemented by a layer of heat from the chili, tempered by the subtle hint of blue cheese in the rich sauce. This dish is seriously good, and you'll just have to restrain yourself from requesting some garlic rice, and go for another round of drinks instead.
Portobello Mushroom Duxelles (P 395), fresh Portobello mushrooms in rich truffle oil, served with crisp crostinis. The rich nutty flavors of the portobello mushrooms are amplified by the truffle oil, for yet another perfect dish to pair with your cocktails. Add a heaping spoonful of mushrooms on a piece of crostini, wash it down with your cocktail, and repeat.
Andre's Poke (P 345), a fresh and flavorful tuna ceviche with rich soy sesame dressing and spicy Sriracha mayo, served with crispy crostini. Fresh, clean flavors and the blend of spicy and creamy notes add contrasting yet balanced flavors.
