I actually decided to split my storytelling of my cousin’s birthday treat into two parts so that one entry focuses on one restaurant only.
Continuing the story… After watching Avengers 3D, we waited for my other cousins who will join us for dinner. We already had a reservation at Krazy Garlik and as the name suggests, most of their dishes have (lots of) garlic. Yay for me! I was not able to take note of the dishes my uncle ordered since he was at the other end of the table; thus, no chance of learning what was what and how much was each dish. But, being the resourceful person that I am, I searched for their menu online. I was quite surprised that they have a website and they posted their menu online. Lucky!
The texture of the squid was just right. It was easy to chew so I can safely say that the calamari was not overcooked. However, it was quite bitter for me and my mom. Good thing there was the aioli dressing which covered up the bitterness.
Good thing they ordered this pizza since I am a huuuuuge fan of garlic and shrimp. At first glance, I thought that the garlic flakes would be as chewy as a peanut. I was wrong. They had the right amount of crispiness which was good since I was worried it would get stuck in between my teeth. All in all, this pizza was excellent! Adding a few more shrimps would make this pizza better, though.
I was quite afraid to take a bite out of this dish since it might be hard to chew because of the litid. To my surprise, it actually felt like the beef was melting in my mouth. Whew. Delicious dish but not that garlik-y.
Yay for crispy pata with lots of garlic! This is deep fried pork leg which is very popular among Filipinos. Usually, when we say crispy pata, we associate it with beer since it is one of the best foods that goes best with it.
This was my first time in Krazy Garlik and I must say, my tummy was very happy. The waiter who took our orders was basically the one who assisted us if ever we need more water or refills for the iced tea and lemonade. His smile looked genuine so that is a plus for me. It’s a bit pricey compared to Recipes by Metro Cafe but every money spent here is worth it. 😉
Okay. So I just realized I was not able to get my cousin to pose for my camera. Boo. Oh well. There’s still next year. 😉
