Definitely seeing RED!

This is my first attempt in capturing food images.
forgive the amateur-ness as they were taken by my SE K750i

Chilean Seabass

Black Cod

Mango Cheesecake

I was invited by my friend to have lunch in RED at the Makati Shangri-La. It was quite weird since I am familiar with the hotel, I never got the chance to sample the dishes in the said restaurant. To be honest, I've never heard of anyone rave on this restaurant, but since it looked promising - I kept an open mind. The bread smelled heavenly - it had bacon bits and some nuts! The butter and tomato spread were great because they went away with the oridnary butter. We were then served with the appetizers, and guess what we had! Foie Gras Creme Brulee - it was fan-tastic! Absolutely, delicious. I couldn't even find the words to describe it - it was THAT good! Wow! (I seldom say that wow, wow!) The plating was eye catching and at the same time practical. They were served in long narrow plates which you can put in the center of the table - to share with your friends.

The Seabass and the Black Cod were all delicious! I never thought you could cook cod they way they did!! :) The concept was brilliant and so was the taste!! We were able to meet the executive chef and he was telling us that he had a free hand at changing the menu - good huh?! He seemed very nice, cheery, sincere and very passionate with food. That's definitely a good trait for a chef!

I will definitely go back!! (I hope.. Soon!)
