Dining is always a passion and its always exciting to try something new. Recently found a new gastronomic haven in the heart of Pasig city, Mesclun ( pronounced as Mesclan- French word meaning mixed greens). The modern inspired interiors in bright green is a welcoming sight to behold. The contemporary fixtures matched with a spacious area showcase appealing play and display of color. One can't help but notice the cool ambiance and light setting that's quite chill and relaxing. The menu presents a variety of mouth watering dishes. Must-try are the pastas, pizzas and Filipino entrees which are also available via room service( if you happen to be checked in). The highlight of all the food porn we feasted on were the guava pork Adobo, crispy Binagoongan and Lumpiang Shanghai. A must go and try to all foodies out there-definitely a treat you won't forget.
