Chateau Surprise!

Every weekend, my mum takes my brother and I out to eat some place nice. As much as I'd like to try something new, we always end up either eating at Cibo or Mamou. I'm not complaining though because every meal I have in both restaurants are always consistently great. Consistent when it comes to the food and the service. 

However, today for lunch we decided to eat at Chateau. Or at least what used to be Chateau, but is now called "Cafe 1771". I was so surprised because I haven't been in that branch in El Pueblo for quite sometime. 

I loved everything about it. I loved the food and the service. Most especially the interiors and ambience! 

I really loved all the little details they added after renovation!

Instead of serving the usual bread and butter, we were served popcorn. 

Soup of the day was Creamy Asparagus Soup.

I ordered the mango shake which was pretty good if you liked a bit of milk in your drink. Notice how there isn't any straw in my drink? Pretty cool how Pasig city is embracing the Green movement and is now prohibiting plastic. 

Handmade Ravioli - Filled with button mushrooms and ricotta cheese, tossed in extra virgin olive oil and herbs.

Pasta Chorizo - Spaghetti tossed in chorizo sauce reduction and parmesan cheese.

Spaghetti with Roasted Tomatoes - With extra virgin olive oil, roasted garlic bulbs and parmesan cheese.

For dessert we ordered, the Espresso Cheesecake and the Valrhona Chocolate Caramel Cake which did not disappoint at all. 

Valrhona Chocolate Caramel Cake - Layers of caramel mousse, chocolate biscuit & chocolate ganache. 

You can never go wrong with chocolate and caramel put together. So if you're a fan of melt in your mouth cakes, I suggest you try this. :)

The food is kind of pricy but totally worth it! I know all the dishes we ordered consisted of pasta, but if you're a fan of lemon chicken like I am, their version's real good too.
