It was only fitting that I eat at Cerchio with Jane and Mila since I was with them too when I ate at Romulo Cafe, the sister restaurant of Cerchio.
While Romulo Cafe served Filipino food Cerchio was a mish mash of Filipino, Asian and Mediterranean cuisine.
I really liked the clear flavorful soup made with grilled chicken, squash, chorizo sausage and plantain bananas. The basil really amped up the flavor of the soup.

The baked crispy pata (pork leg) was surprisingly crisp although not as crispy at the fried version. But for a sinful dish with less guilt and cholesterol it was good enough for me not to miss the fried version. Yes the 3 of us finished this entire chunk of pork love.

With so many fish dishes on the menu we took a chance with the crispy hito or catfish. It was a good decision. The fish fingers were so good they tasted like chicken. The signature sauce was yummy too. We actually used that sauce for our crispy pata too.

My friend Rochelle texted me that I should order the grilled squid. She was right! The squid was perfectly cooked and tender. The rice was a bit dry but tasty.

We finished all the food save for two chicken wraps. I’ve read other opinions on other blogs, some negative some positive. I guess it depends on what you order. We were lucky that everything we ordered was good.
