Manila is overflowing with restaurants. The extensive variety in the market right now proves the adventurous palette of the modern Filipino. The Pinoy in general just loves to eat and more than that it's basically a big part of their culture. Establishments who have been there for awhile offer new dishes to their menu to make them versatile. Aside from their bestsellers, the additions bring novelty to their lineup and entice regular customers to try it out. One of the more popular restos located at the heart of Makati known for fusion cuisine is Museum Cafe (but more popularly known as M cafe).
This author together with People Asia's Patricia Romualdez recently dropped by for a quick brunch before heading to work and discovered the new mouthwatering foodies this gastronomic habitue had to offer. For a change, we decided to skip the meat and poultry part and ended up having veggies and seafood instead. We started with the drink of the season--dalandan mint refresher-which turned out to be the perfect healthy thirst quencher. Followed by a series of uber yummy appetizers such as the crystal prawn dumpling with thick sweet choy, chili oil and mustard sprouts, pandan wrapped fishcakes with pickled cucumber, sweet chili and ground peanuts, and lastly the garlic chili scallops with wonton cups. For the main course we had the M Specials cold summer prawn salad with plum lime vinaigrette which is a fusion of mango,watermelon, white cheese, granny smith apples, cashew and cherry tomatoes. In the end, we were quite satisfied with everything we ate that were quite refreshing and delectable to our palette. It's always good to try something new, who knows they just might end up as part of your list of favorites. Below are photos of M Cafe's what's new on the menu.
