The C' Experience

Yesterday, our parents celebrated their 25th Wedding Anniversary. As a pre-celebration, we decided to have dinner the previous Sunday at one of the most famous restaurants in Angeles. C' Italian Dining is an Italian restaurant situated along Clark's perimeter road somewhere in between the red district and Korea town. Prices of the food were a bit steep for a normal dinner but for special occasions, it was fine spending a bit more. And every centavo was well worth it.

For starters, we had a Kristina Panizza. This is their best seller and their specialty so we had it before the appetizer. Hungry that we were, it really didn't matter which came first    
 So, basically, it is a thin crust rectangular pizza without the tomato sauce. It's crispy on the edge and a bit soft in the middle and comes comes with arugula leaves.
Before eating it, take a slice, put some leaves on and roll it like this .

Next was risotto. 
It's similar to lugaw only, it has a thicker consistency and the rice is not as watery and soft. It had shrimps cooked perfectly, not too gummy, not too soft. 
It also had tomato chunks and tasted like no lugaw we've ever had befor, as quoted by my brother. It tastes good. Actually, everything tastes good. 

 Next was the main course.  Spaghetti with meat balls and a serving of honey glazed roasted pork ribs
 The spaghetti sauce was a bit chunky and a bit watery but the consistency was good altogether. The noodles was cooked al dente the way I liked it. The meatballs were juicy but tasted plain.
The roasted pork with honey glaze was cooked nicely. It was soft but not too soft that the slices easily disintegrated. It was also meaty, that is, there was little fat. It also came with this mashed-patato-like corn thing. I really can't recall what they call it but it had hints of corn and potatoes topped on what seemed like broccoli leaves. 
 Unfortunately, we didn't get to have desert.

So, all in all, the dining experience was good. The ambiance was comfortable and had a unique feel to it.  Too bad we only get to eat there during special occasions.
