We accidentally ended up in MOMO Cafe in Eastwood Mall two Wednesday nights ago. We originally planned to watch Skyfall, but I had loads of work to do in the office, left the office late, got stuck in traffic... Bottomline, I got home with only a few minutes to go before Skyfall started playing at the nearest theater. So movie plans became dinner plans, and we ended up in Eastwood Mall.
We ordered the Creamy Crabby Seafood Casserole. We were told by our friendly waitress that it was a dish good for two. As always, when I'm ravenous, I refuse to listen to logic and choose to listen to my rumbling tummy instead. I wanted something meaty, something unhealthy for a change. I saw Boneless Cornflakes Crusted 'Country Fried Chicken' on the menu. That sounded greasy enough. We got that one too.
First came the complimentary bread with the usual spread. Bread was okay. Spread was okay. I cannot, for the life of me, remember what the spread was. It tasted cheesy and pimento-y at the same time.
Next out was the Creamy Crabby Seafood Casserole. I pooh-poohed it upon seeing it. How can something this small be good for two people? The waitress must be underestimating my appetite. The casserole is actually a creamy risotto with generous servings of seafood mixed in it. One bite, and both my hubby and I were in risotto heaven. Very yummy, I tell you.
Then came the Country Fried Chicken, a really forgettable blah chicken dish. We were eating it just so it won't get wasted. :(
After an hour or so of good conversation and good risotto, we were both full. Too full for dessert. And to my surprise, we had only gone through half of the seafood casserole dish! The waitress was right. The seafood casserole alone was filling enough for two people. I didn't mind bringing home the casserole leftover for dinner again the next night. It was still yummy when we reheated it.
The total bill came to about Php400 per person. Would we come back? Hmm... on those nights when I'm craving for really good risotto, then probably yes.
