When I was much younger I didn’t eat salad except for Mario’s Caesar salad specially the one in Baguio. Finally after so many years I wanted to find out if their salad was still as good as I remembered.
We ordered 5 Caesar salads and split it among 10 of us. If I knew how the other food would taste like I should have ordered a whole portion for myself. You can taste the strong garlic flavor and saltiness of the anchovies in the well balanced dressing. I’m glad their Caesar salad still tasted exactly the same as I remember.
Almost everyone ordered and loved the French onion soup. I passed on soup because I wanted to save my tummy for the paella.
I love chorizo but this was beyond salty! No amount of bread or rice can balance out the saltiness of the chorizo. I asked the waiter if they made a mistake and he replied with conviction that’s how they do it. Really?
As good as the paella looked it suffered the same fate as the chorizo. One paellera was saltier than the other and we had to return it. The other one had super salty parts and some less. We took most it home.
Thankfully the bacalao (salted cod) tasted normal.
The steak wasn’t bad either.
Other than the excellent Caesar salad and French onion soup the dinner was mostly disappointing.
