chef chris happens to be the C in C' italian dining in angeles, pampanga, just outside clark. but he has since left C' and put up this restaurant inside the oasis, a hotel right outside paco park. we had been hearing good things about this place and had to try it out for ourselves.
first order: caesar salad (P490). big enough for two. fresh, crisp romaine hearts and just enough dressing.
the hubby ordered cream of tomato soup (P190) and i got jealous so i had to try it. a delicious, hearty purée. very filling, so i'm glad i just shared!
my order: prawn tails braised with chorizo in aromatic tomato sauce (P940). mmm very tasty but not overwhelmingly so. serving is generous so make sure you're hungry!
the hubby's order: grilled home made italian sausage (P670). this is supposed to be one of the chef's signature dishes. ang lalaki!
and to wash it all down, tattinger champagne (P2,190):
parang hindi lang bagay sa background hehe...
the verdict: if you don't live in the area, it's a place with food worth making the trek to. it's a casual dining place in an area that's making an effort to get back some of its former glory. support!
