Taste of Perfection

The best moments in life are those we spend with our family and friends.  Minutes become hours as time passes by so quickly over endless storytelling and laughter.   Precious and timeless, these things no amount of monetary unit can purchase--a truth most live by.  And like most truths, there is that unspoken myth about a matter most would desire --taste.  Some say it's either you have it or you don't.  But let's not get there and start raising eyebrows, it all depends on ones perspective.  
One of taste's greatest attribute is the ability to create or make anything beautiful. One haven of beauty this author was able to have the luxury of time to spend an afternoon with great friends was at Lusso( which means luxurious in Italian).  Located at the stealth corner of Greenbelt 5, this Italian resto is the epitome of chic.  The interiors boasts of impeccable taste in furniture, lighting fixtures, table settings, flora and fauna arrangements set in gilded perfection.  One is welcomed by the friendly staff into this well-lit sanctuary of refined sensibilities.  A tribute to the senses, the luxe setting presents a unique menu made by no less than one of Manila's most respectable connoisseurs-Gaita Fores. The must-try specialties include Beef burger with Foie Grass, Salmon Tartare Mille-Feuille, Lumpfish Caviar Foam, Gnocco Prosciutto San Daniele, Lusso Foie Gras Burger, Bottarga Di Muggine and Shepherd's Pie Braised Lamb. A noteworthy wine and dine habitue for the elusive, one cannot contest the atmosphere and beauty of refinement.
