There is no C in Krazy Garlik

Garlicky Crispy Pata
Iced Tea (refillable)
Since we're on the topic of birthdays, after my sister, it's my brother's turn to celebrate his. We could not celebrate it on the exact date of his birthday so we decided to do so on March 9, 2013, a Saturday, at the SM Mall of Asia. There's the rub. Unlike the rest of the country, we had no idea that that Saturday was one of the designated dates for the wildly popular 4th Philippine International Pyromusical Competition. Naturally, the place was packed to the hilt. So packed that my brother, who went there ahead of us, could not even get to any parking of the lots of that massive mall. So we had a slight change in plans.

We headed towards Resorts World Manila. We got there past 8PM, so we were decidedly hungry and thirsty. I remember thinking to myself that I want a restaurant where I can get good refillable iced tea. Because that is the first thing that I am ordering, and I will require lots of it. So, after climbing to the second floor of the Newport Mall, we immediately decided to have dinner in another Bistro Group member restaurant, Krazy Garlik, where of course they had "infinity" iced tea.

Baba Ghanoush
Fortunately, the little detour from MOA proved to be a good one. Service was fast and attentive at Krazy Garlik and the meal was lovely. For appetizer, we ordered Baba Ghanoush.

40 Kloves Garlic Chicken
(to share) Php695
Grilled Tuna Belly
Black Squid Ink Rice
(to share) Php365
Our main courses comprised a full-on feast-- Grilled Tuna Belly, 40 Kloves Garlic Chicken and Garlicky Crispy Pata. We had two kinds of rice, plain and Squid Ink Rice. 

Forest Pizza
We even ordered pizza. We chose the one called Forest, which had "button and shitake mushrooms, cream, Italian Cheese, and a dash of truffle oil." While everything had rave reviews from our hungry family of 5, The pizza, for me, is the most memorable of the bunch.

Krazy Garlik Newport Mall is at 2nd Floor, Newport Mall Resorts World Manila, Newport Blvd., Pasay City. For reservations contact (02)621-7148.
