The only regret I had when we dined at Casa Verde was that I didn’t order more! The food here was delish, now I wish they have a branch here in Manila. Although we ordered just enough for 5 people, I just wanted to try their other dishes. The place was packed when we arrived (didn’t get to call for reservations) so we had to wait for a couple of minutes before we had a table. I immediately loved the place since it was not too formal nor casual too.
We ordered for watermelon salad, carbonarra, The Dax, Brian’s Baby Back Ribs, and dessert. The watermelon salad was just so-so for me and so is the carbonarra. The Dax includes, shrimps and steak.
I wasn’t happy with the steak because it wasn’t cooked very well (we asked for well done). It was burnt and raw in the inside. We asked them to cook it again for us. The shrimp was good.
Brian’s Baby Back Ribs is their best seller and I would say, the best we had in this particular meal. If I weren’t too full already, I would have ordered more. The serving was huge but all of us finished it after a few minutes. Yes, we were hungry!
We finished off our meal with this dessert…
It was nothing special though. But because of the lively setting at Casa Verde, we went back to the hotel feeling giddy and happy.
