And we just couldn’t get enough of Epic Boracay! (warning – heavy post with photos lies ahead!)
An excerpt from my article in The Freeman that was published last Feb. 29.
As if you are reading their menu straight off from a Greenbelt establishment, the varied cuisine caters to discerning palates of epicureans from salads to all 12 kinds of meat.
We started off with tomato soup and the restaurant’s famous Epic Salad or an array of mixed greens with sliced grapes, walnuts and parmesan in simple balsamic vinaigrette.
Start with Epic’s tomato soup
Main dishes also arrived in tandem with our mocktails. Our Grilled Blue Marlin with Mango Salsa just came with the Epic Braised Lamb Shank, and Epic’s Buffalo Wings in epic proportions!
These beach grill favorites have the stamp World Grill on them.
Now besides eating with a group, the rule to eating Epic’s buffalo wings, a paragon of bar-food excellence, should be addressed cautiously with every wing-eating encounter. Although sucking sauce off your fingers means you severely enjoyed the subject of passionate devotion for all Wing-ist, eating Epic’s Buffalo wings is a hot business and sometimes sweating ensures. But then again every wing that followed, however spicy, tasted good if not great.
Long, slow and braised lamb shanks also became our perfect comfort food when the month of February signaled chilly nights. It was perhaps the perfect season to be in the island because after having a go at Epic’s take on the braised lamb shank, we needed a new word for “succulent” after Epic owned, stamped and patented it already. A taste will accent myriad looks from eyes rolling over to the obscene because nothing here is mediocre, folks.
Ma. Angeles F. Valencerina, or better known as Chef Anj Valencerina heads the Epic World Grill kitchen and a specialization in Fusion and Western cuisine made her an expert in the rich flavors of Asia by using western techniques. These cuisines plus efficient staff service propel Epic Boracay farther into undeniable dining popularity. Your dining experience will be truly remarkable.
Babe, moi and my good friend now turned island girl, Ronarons!
The restaurant turns into a dance bar at night and when the lights dim, Epic transforms into a world bar atmosphere with resident djs spinning house and R&B music. Fortify with alcohol to spice up your island life. Who knows – we might end up subsisting in it.
