Casting call.

Sunday brunch is becoming a regular habit.  We started this last year and am glad we are making it as often as we can.  This week's attendees included Expat EIC and Phil Star columnist Katrina Holigores, makeup artist Bobby Carlos, fashion designer's Louis Claparols, Ivar Aseron and designer turned global artist Patty Eustaquio.  Brunch became lunch instead at one of our favorite spots-- Mamou in Serendra at the Fort in Taguig.  Food has always been so good and service is faster than a speeding bullet.  I didn't order my favorite Eggs Benedict with bacon since I came in super late (which by the way is a rare thing) but got a pasta dish--Vongole(clams) instead. I've tried this excellent dish and decided to do something with it for a change. Adding a twist to my meal I spiced the Vongole with ground pepper for that added flavor and was satisfied to my hearts content.  

Vongole surprise.
For dessert, I was so jealous of Patty's ( who's having a group exhibit at White Space this coming Saturday and another one in Hongkong in March) order and decided to get the same--New York cheesecake.  I was savoring the oh so heavenly melt slowly in my mouth. In my opinion, I think Mamou has one of the best cheesecakes in town. Am so glad it's not one of those mousse cheesecakes which am not so fond of at all.  Perfect Sunday lunchies with a lot of kwentos.  Wished everyday was a Sunday :-)
