A Beautiful End

May 16, 2010
L'Opera Ristorante Italiano
The Fort, Taguig City

After that poor excuse for a burger at The Jeepney Cafe, we decided to cleanse our palette with L'Opera's Panna Cotta. Browsing through the menu, our stomachs pointed us to a totally different direction. We were so unsatisfied by the previous meal that we ordered a couple of their hearty appetizers instead:

Fegato D’oca in Letto di Insalate - Probably the best thing ever made into food: Foie Gras. I'd probably eat it everyday if I could. Sadly, the foie gras tonight was a bit overcooked. Looking past that, it's fucking foie gras! How can you not love it?!?

Composizione di Speck Mozzarella e Pomodoro - The speck ham was so thinly sliced that it disappeared each time the heat of your mouth would touch it. The various preserved olives and mozzarella cheese added a different dimension to the dish. It is, as delicious as it looks.

Prosciutto di Parma - A generous serving of melt in your mouth parma ham. We couldn't help but moan after each bite. The only downside to the dish was the fact that melons were not available. It would have been a much better combination instead of the ripe mangoes.

Our appetizer course at L'Opera saved our horrible night. Who would have thought: A perfect end could sometimes be a beautiful beginning.
