It has been over 6 months since I last visited XO46. I used to go there quite often with Janina but have not had the opportunity to do so this year. Yesterday, I reached a milestone at work and to celebrate, I treated FM to dinner at XO46.
Imagine my surprise when I got there and saw that they have expanded and they now have a New Visayan Room. Gone is Haiku which used to the a Japanese restaurant beside them. Now, it is the Visayang Room where everything on the menu is different from XO46: Filipino Heritage.
I found the ambiance of the place soothing. It was very classy and comfy. I really, really liked it. I also loved the uniform of the servers and the free appetizers.
We ordered the lechon sisig because I could not stop yakking about it and I really wanted FM to try it. We also ordered the binagoongan rice and boy were they not kidding about the portions. FM also got the sago't gulaman and though overall he liked the taste, he was not too happy about the sago.
|Bagoong Rice Php190 good for 3-4 persons|
|Lechon Sisig good for 2-3 persons Php330|
|Sago't Gulaman Php95|
The lechon sisig was still as good as I remembered. It was crunchy, tasty, and deadly. Haha.
Overall, it was a great spontaneous date night for FM and I. We had fun, we celebrated my milestone, and we spent time together.
