@This was our team’s fourth food crawl stop by Zomato and at this point we are on the verge of being tired of eating. But how does one stop putting a spoonful of good food when Cafe Arabelle’s selections for us looked amazing? After having some, it also tasted as expected.
It’s one of your go to destinations here in restaurant rich Solenad if you are craving for American and Italian comfort food. It could also be your preference if you appreciate cozy ambiance while you dine. It’s homey with intricate designs here and there.
We had 6 well selected pieces for our stay here. Arabelle’s Special Salad (Php 270) was a rich healthy starter, packed with fresh greens, and fruits like mango and apples, topped with a lot of sour mango dressing. It was a fruity sweet first encounter for this one. Next was a sinful opposite, fatty bacon strips and flavorful pancetta with asparagus in delicious peanut sauce dubbed as Grilled Bacon Pancetta (Php 270).
For main entree, we got their most prized offering, Arabelle’s Barbecue Ribs (Php 740). This filling dish prides itself with fall of the bone meat and their own sweet barbecue mix. This one was curated to the liking of a typical Filipino. I also liked that it came with ample amounts of vegetables to balance this meal out.
For pasta, Seafood Marinara (Php 335) was value for money with generous pool of shrimps, clams and squid. It could use however additional herbs like basil to add more complex flavor to it. Arabelle’s Creamy Mushroom Pasta (Php 400) on the other hand, was way better. It had Al dente, firm pasta and creamy yet not milky sauce with a nice bold mix of bacon and ham.
For the last serving, Buffalo Pizza (Php 520). It’s filled with buffalo seasoned chicken chunks, red and green bell peppers, mozzarella cheese and rich tomato, pomodoro sauce. It’s just one of the 14 pizzas they offer here. It’s a sure bet if you are seeking value for money dish. It’s meaty, fresh and filling.
