Glad I was able to get out that night because I met up with Ethy, Norman, Mike, Dom and Joanna. We started off first with dinner at Irie Gastropubliko and since it was our first time there since the gastropub opened, we just have to taste everything!
Coy started off with their Caesar Salad (P180) – normaine lettuce, croutons, homemade Caesar and dressing while Norman had their homemade silky smooth Tomato Soup with grilled cheese sandwhich – very filling quite a meal itself!
I tried their hand-cut double fried Truffle Fries (P250) and Truffle Pesto Pasta in butter and Evoo and parmesan cheese (P250) and it was simply divine!
The pesto was not that strong and I can savour every truffle flavour laced in the spaghetti. Being such a huge fan of anything truffle, Irie certainly indulged my truffle obsession! The price is not that bad considering how sought after truffle pasta is — because you can hardly find it anywhere! Jan Rodriguez, the man behind the menu, says he has his sources. Ah, how resourceful he is!
Ethy on the other hand tried their Angus Kebab (P180), angus tenderloin beef skewered with onions, bell pepper, mushrooms and tomato. It goes with rice and garlic yoghurt. Dom had Irie’s bestselling Irie Burger (see below).
Our dessert? At I Heart Tea Cebu! Watch out for separate post on that! Thanks Coy for hosting these diners <3
