I never thought the time would come when Paul and I actually would feel that way. I guess it's pretty inevitable given that we've been away from Manila for more than 3 years and we only get to fly home at an average once every quarter and during those visits, we would only stay for a week or even less. For a country that's fast developing (I hope) and there are just a lot of new retail outlets and restaurants opening left and right, we recently found ourselves lost while navigating around... Bonifacio Global City -- a place that we used to frequent more than once a week many years ago. Believe it or not, I even had to call my sister to help us find our way out to C5. Unbelievable.
I'm loving the very modern yet classy vibe of Salvatore Cuomo. Dimly lit lights, dark wooden furnishings and an open kitchen. It's just fun to watch the chefs in action and right at the corner is this beautiful oven that uses specially selected wood to give the pizza a distinct delicious flavor. I was told that all the ingredients were carefully sourced and most of it were even asked to be imported by Chef Salvatore Cuomo himself.
It was such an amazing evening and indeed, this was definitely one of the highlights of our recent visit home. It's always fun catching up with old friends over a good meal.
