We initially couldn't decide where to go so I took matters into my own hands (literally!) and drove the team to Rockwell Center. Once there, we played a little eenie-mini-miney-moe and chose the restaurant that could offer us a good parking space (hehe!). Finally, we went for Apartment 1B! Hooray!
I've dined at the Salcedo Village branch before and loved it! It has been years since and I thought it would be nice to go back and to visit their One Rockwell branch this time. We got there during lunch time and were pretty lucky to be able to get a table that would comfortably fit all 6 of us at the second floor. I've always love Apartment 1B's cozy and homey interiors.
They've gone so modern! Check out this cool calling device.
The menu has grown from the time I last dined here. This is also the reason why the entire team had a hard time choosing what to get for lunch that day. I, myself, was choosing between their famous Eggs Benedict or a pasta dish. I'm so happy ML was seated beside me and she was game to share. Yay! We foodies really should stick together.
The verdict? I found the English muffin a bit too dry however the salmon, cheese and poached egg totally made up for it. The smoked salmon had a good silky texture, the poached egg was very fresh and the hollandaise sauce totally addicting. This is one reason why I love breakfast food. I hope ML enjoyed this one as much as I did.
The lasagna was baked to perfection and you can just imagine how gooey and cheezy this was. The lasagna sheets were cooked al dente and this alternates with a generous amount of filling which was a bit too heavy given we each had a piece of Eggs Benedict already.
Apartment 1B is located at the Ground Floor, One Rockwell East Tower, Rockwell Center. Call them at 869-3530.
