All the bloggers that attended the bloggers’ night/product re-launch were treated to the gastronomic delights of Lu Restaurant.
We had deep fried zuchini blossoms with bacon and broth. The blossoms were crispy and the broth was sweet-salty. It was a perfect meal starter.
Next was the rice noodles with caramelized pork. This was my favorite among all the dishes. I loved the savory pork with the tangy noodles. The peanuts and herbs made me feel that I was enjoying Vietnamese noodles. 🙂
The main dish was tamarind shrimps and bagoong rice with green mangoes. I finished the rice against my no-rice-diet-rule. I think the shrimps had cumin, so I didn’t like it much, as I am not a fan of Indian spices.
For dessert, ginger icecream on a barquillos-like cup with caramelized buco (bucayo). Who would have thought that ginger could make ice cream really yummy? Not me! So this was a very pleasant surprise indeed!
All food served went well with WaterPlus Reduce- flavors in Berries and Lemon, Grape and Apple. Best with Apple! Hehe, I’m biased. It’s my favorite!
Could it be that my besty Joanna thinks so, too? :p
