i think serendra is the new "it" place for dining this christmas season.

lots of choices with regards to restaurants.

polu kai has great food. portico and hosseins have opened there as well.

after dinner, there is mary grace, cupcakes or you can cross the street and take home a few boxes of crispy creme. :)

as for shops, not much yet, although according to my sources fully booked is going to open a 4 story outlet there.

Lots of nice Restaurants around here... Did someone tried Je Suis Gourmand? :)


I don't think I want to be caught dead in a restaurant for "goumands". A gourmand is a glutton. Someone who will eat a lot of anything irrespective of the taste or quality of the food.

On the other hand, a "gourmet" is someone who enjoys good food. If the owner does not know the difference, and has used these two terms interchangeably, he is probably a food illiterate.

Yes, I agree. I have tried Balducci's which is a more informal version of L'Opera (same owners) but with nonetheless a full menu with a comprehensive deli counter full of Italian cheeses, prosciutto, Parma ham, and sausages. Not locally made but imported from Italia.

My favorite off-menu from L'opera items are also served here as the waiters will recognize you as a L'Opera regular if you order them. I like a half-serving of Aglio olio on angel hair spaghetti on the side with a grilled chilean sea bass or a rib eye done medium rare.

the desserts are great but a bit much so the rule is to offer to share one dessert with your date. I have narrowed the choices down to two recommendations. Ask your date if she prefers a cheese based or a chocolate based dessert. If the latter, then order the Tartufo Ciocollata (Chocolate truffles), enough said. If the former, then its the pannacotta. Wash it down with a double espresso if you want.

Oh yes, the wine choices are good and can range from the reasonable to the down right ridiculous in price but then again, ridiculous as applied to wine prices is relative to the buyer's pocket. Ask for a "Penfolds" and they know exactly what to bring from this Australian vintner. That's about under P1,000 forthe bottle. If you are in a celebratory mood, a "Brunello" will set you back almost P6k and an "Illuminatti" silghtly more.

Average cost to dine without wine (if you dine to impress) for two persons is about P800 per head. Slightly under L'Opera's P1,200 average.

as of now, parking is still free at serendra, they have underground parking but it gets filled up pretty quickly.

you can also choose to park at the center islands at the other end of serendra. (not the one facing market market)

last resort na lang ang parking sa market market dahil may bayad pa duon.

i imagine though that once serendra and the other places open to full capacity, parking can be quite a problem.

tried cupcakes by sonja last weekend :wub:

the shop is located in serendra complex. the place is quite small and easily gets to SRO. long lines, but well worth the wait.

I like duo and thai at silk. both were delish! try the steaks at duo both the escargo and the foie gras were very good (price ranges around 700-800 per dish). Thai at silk... try the soup with coconut milk, chicken curry and even the noodles (each dish is around 200-300) but well worth it. Try reserving first coz the restos are kinda full most of the time even during weekdays. :D happy eating!

The curries are great and go very well with the buttered Indian bread. If you're not in a buttery mood, the plain nan should be ok. There are belly dancing nights too, but the belly dancers aren't that impressive. If you're lucky, the Brazilian instructress might be dancing, and that is always a treat. But her understudies are like pole dancers in beer houses.
