My daughter had eaten here before and really wanted us to give this "closed door" restaurant a try. I am so glad that we did! The food was delicious and the service impeccable. And the chef's house was welcoming and lovely, with a nice patio that would be terrific in the summer months, although not an option on a cold day.
The menu this week started with prawns wrapped in corteo (fine noodles), moved to a hand spring roll, and then we had a choice of entrees--fish with baby bok choy, bbq pork with cold rice noodles, or a pumpkin chicken curry. There were three of us, so we got one of each entree and shared. They were all delicious. Dessert was a mixture of tropical fruit and ice cream, which you mixed together in a glass to make a refreshing "fruit shake." Or, as my daughter said, "happiness in a glass."
Plain water and hot tea are included with the meal price, but sodas, bubbly water and wine are not very expensive add-ons. The price for three of us was 750 pesos without a tip.
You make your reservation on-line, and when they confirm, they will give you the address for dinner. It was in a part of town that I hadn't been to before, but was only a 50 peso taxi ride from Palermo Soho. One more tip: although you select a seating time when you make your reservation, all the diners are eating on their own schedule, so if you a little early or a little late, it's not a big deal. I had envisioned a "banquet style" service, with everyone eating the same courses at the same time. Not so.
This is an experience that should not be missed!
