❤️ Sicilian Limonata ❤️
Price: Php350 VAT-inclusive, subject to 10% service charge
YES 6 out of 5 stars! If you’re in the area, you SHOULD NOT MISS this! Your trip to Rambla will be so worth it with just this drink! Fresh lemonade with almond flavor… it’s SOOOOO GOOOOOD!!! I’m married to Pao so I had to share this with him and he loved this drink too! I finally found my go-to drink for when I get preggy again. It’s non alcoholic! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
Price: Php330 (glass) VAT-inclusive, subject to 10% service charge
Probably found my favorite white wine, thanks to Our Awesome Planet’s visit to Rambla back in 2013: “full body, bright straw colour, touch of lemon, lots of peach and green apple”. For me, it’s a simple drink, light and fruity, just the way I like it.
Marinated in Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Price: Php45 per piece VAT-inclusive, subject to 10% service charge
You can’t dine at Rambla without trying these, especially if you love olives! But if you don’t like olives (what is wrong with you?), never mind ordering this because it’s simply pureed olives shaped back into big olives then marinated in extra virgin olive oil. They serve it table-side scooped from a jar onto a big spoon. Put the whole sphere into your mouth and you’ll be lost for words with how the flavor bursts! There’s something wrong with Pao (he does not like olives), so he didn’t order any. I couldn’t resist ordering a second spoon even after we ordered dessert! I was trying to tell Pao how much I loved these and I tried to narrate my gastro pleasure… but I found no words. All sound effects. 😂
With Shiitake Mushroom Sauce, Rosemary, and Hazelnuts
Price: Php395 VAT-inclusive, subject to 10% service charge
It’s like gnotti but more silky and cheesy. Cheese lovers probably won’t share this dish with anyone. Glad that Pao and I are married that he had no choice but to share this with me. 😁
Topped with Foie and Caramelized Apples
Price: Php825 VAT-inclusive, subject to 10% service charge
It’s expensive for a tapas order, but you should try this at least once. Pao never really liked any kind of liver, though liver pate is an exception (again, what is wrong with him?), so tonight I was so happy and proud that he ate foie gras! I had him try foie gras before but he really didn’t like the taste and texture. He couldn’t believe that what he ate tonight was foie gras… he loved it! And the beef… oh-so-good! We had it cooked to medium. It was so tender and, hmmm… supple! Just loved it. Only wish there were more than four strips on the plate. Oh well.
And this ends our first Rambla fave list. We will surely be back to try out other items on their menu, but most especially for the olives and limonata!
