Sadly, it's only I who wasn't gifted with a sexy body that whatever I eat immediately zooms straight to my hips and butt. I'd call it ala-JLo asset if only I don't have a growing tummy too. *boo!* Just watch how my sister and Mommy would eat. They'd be the first to sit down for dinner and the last to leave the table. After dinner, you'd find them nibbling on chocolates, dried prunes, chips and a lot more. Life is truly not fair. *sigh*
Anyway, one night after dinner, Pan and I were still craving for something sweet. Since we miraculously ran out of our chocolate stash at home, we decided to take a short drive to have some fondue! Yes! Fondue for dessert sounds yummy! The best thing is, I know just the place.
After doing my regular blog hops, I learned about this new restaurant called Eleven Tables serves all types of fondue and wine. What a classy combination! Located the Ace Plaza, this is the newest addition to the growing Kapitolyo restaurant family.
The place was filled which means all 10 other tables were occupied and we got the last one table in the house. What luck! Browsing the menu, Pan and I knew that we now wanted more than dessert. How can we say no to Bacon, Cheddar and Tomato fondue (Php. 340/600)? We enjoyed reading the menu as it has illustrations for fondue types. Since Mommy reminded us that we were there for dessert, we agreed to just get the small size that's really good for 2 pax. The large fondue, on the other hand, is good for 4 pax.
The Bacon, Cheddar and Tomato fondue came with bread, baby potatoes, cauliflower and broccoli. I love how generous they were with the dipping sauce. With our long-stemmed forks, we began dipping and biting into the cheesy covered veggies. I love how the bacon perfectly coats my piece of broccoli flower.
I'm definitely trying the Beef and Seafood Bourguignonnes on my next return.
We met Eleven Tables' owner Leslie Go who actually went to the same high school as we did. She's so nice that she gave us some Smores and Butterscotch Popcorn to enjoy. Thank you Leslie!
I have a confession to make, I was never a girl scout during my younger years thus I never have really roasted a marshmallow or have created smores in my life. This was actually a first for me and Leslie patiently guided us through.
We had fun roasting the marshmallow on top of the fondue fire, covering this with chocolate syrup and squishing this right in the middle of two graham crackers. It was soooo good! This is definitely a must-try especially for big groups as everyone will be busy making their own smores.
We were also given a bowl of Butterscotch Popcorn (Php. 150) to try. I tried a piece or two and liked the sweet caramel syrup. My family enjoyed this very much too.
I love the fun, laid back feel of Eleven Tables. This is a great place to date or to hang out after work. They actually have an ongoing promo Wine-all-you-can every Friday which is perfect for wine drinkers.
