I won a Php1000 Relik lunch gift certificate from En-route a month or two ago. It was due to expire this month so FM and I decided to eat at Relik before it does. Crazy enough, we ate there yesterday at lunchtime and because of the incessant rain, there was no one having lunch except the two of us.
Talk about having the place all to ourselves. We had fun taking photos because there was no one disturbing the shots and could take photos to our hearts content. After, we ordered and since the price is actually not that expensive, we ordered a bit too much for ourselves.
They did not have any fruit shakes available so FM had Royal and I opted for 4 Seasons Fruit Juice. I loved the glass they used because its not your typical short glass found in Spanish restaurants. It looked cute and I loved it.
The Fresh Greens salad that they gave us which is a part of the Lunch set (php350) had too much vinegar on it. It didn't taste to my liking. FM finished it. He did say as well that it had a bit too much dressing.
|Roasted Pumpkin Soup php150|
|Mother Ann's Braised Ox-tail Php450|
|Seafood and Saffron Rissotto Php320|
I actually wanted to tell the staff that this is what they should recommend to people who dine at Relik. It was just so good but oh so fattening since a small dish would probably get you to eat at leasst 3 cups of rice. GAH!
Overall, we enjoyed our lunch out at Relik and I actually told FM that we should go back there and have Chorizig again.
Here we are, the happy couple and below, the GC's we used. We only paid an extra php237 which makes our total bill Php1237 only. I say its not bad for a meal that was that big. :)
Thanks again Lynne and Ray of En-route for this great opportunity to eat at Relik. FM and I had fun.
