When it comes to food, I have little to no trouble feeding the kids. They’d eat anything. They can live off pizza, burgers, sandwiches, pasta all month long with no complaints. But with Kap, it’s an entirely different thing. He’s your typical kanin kinda guy. A meal is just not a meal without his rice requirement. Ganyan yata ang karamihan sa mga Pinoy?
Kahit de-latang corned beef lang ang ulam, as long as it’s paired with rice, Kap is happy. So with our pending trip, he’d probably starve himself, lol!
For a dry run, we went to the hottest place in town, the new Salvatore Cuomo & Bar, which brings the authentic taste of Naples to Uptown Bonifacio (where The Palace Pool Club is). Kap has to learn that Pizza is our friend, not our foe, hehe.
Salvatore Cuomo is a pizza + bar + fine dining concept + casual dressing. Italian dining at its best. It is named after the Italian-born celebrity chef Salvatore Cuomo. His passion for his food has led him to open restaurants around the world including Korea, Japan, Taiwan and Shanghai. How lucky that Am-Phil Group (the same guys that brought in Chili’s, Nanbantei, Super Bowl of China, and Tokyo Tonteki) was able to partner with him & bring another world-class dining to our shores! <3
Salvatore Cuomo & Bar
G/F Uptown Parade, 9th Avenue corner 38th Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig ; 946-3072 or 946-3073
Ate leaves for a 4-day international trip today with her bitchezz and we’ll be seeing her again a day before we all leave the country for a month. We’re so clingy that may send-off party pa talaga for her before she leaves, lol! ;))
Salvatore Cuomo has such handsome interiors. Industrial, yet warm and welcoming. Nagka-idea na naman si Ate for the design of her room. Please girl, tama na! At this rate, your room will never be finished! @_@
What we came here for.. PUGON-baked pizza! Salvatore Cuomo‘s wood-fired oven fires out hot, chewy, mouthwatering pizza woohoo! \m/
To start us off, complimentary bread, yay! Can I just say? Ask for extra servings of the chewy, herb-y Zeppole. But don’t tell them I told you so hehe.
The tastiest Caprese con Mozzarella di Bufala 750 php. Buffalo mozzarella salad. We happily dipped our bread in the olive oil while waiting for the rest of our food. Those are some fresh cherry tomatoes. lemme tell you!
Tagliere di Affetatti 960 php. Assorted fresh parma ham, neapolitan salami, and mortadella ham.
Quattro Formaggi 750 php. 4 kinds of cheese WITH HONEY! Saraaaap. The sweet & salty combo is just so lovely!
But just as Kap is my soulmate, this D.O.C. definitely stole my heart & soul. <3 I’d go back for this over & over again, hindi nakakasawa.
Super loving this DOC pizza (Mozarella, cherry tomato, basil) 820 php. So simple & fresh, the taste is clean & refreshing. Perfect for our year-round summer weather. Again, heart-heart-heart those Japanese cherry tomatoes!
My busog-lusog kids. Will definitely miss Ate these 4 days huhu.
A favorite at our table, so much that it called for TWO orders! Spaghetti all spuma di Carbonara 480 php. Light but creamy. So simple but oh so good! Must have, promise.
Ang pagkaing walang anggulo! ;P Yummy from every angle huhu. With scampis actually fatter than my fingers, lol. Fettuccine ai Scampi 850 php (fettuccine with scampi & tomato cream sauce).
I’m like “Hey, what’s up hello!” <3 Please wipe my drool. PLEASE!! Tagliata di Manzo 1,500 php. Beef ribeye steak with basil sauce & parmesan cheese. Thick & juicy, and best of all, only 1.5k – wtf! Another order please??
While waiting for our dessert, the gals took the opportunity to do what they do best. ;) The place is just so photogenic, every nook & cranny makes for nice pictures don’t you agree? Of course, it doesn’t hurt that my ladies are also so very lovely, teehee. :-*
Sweets for my sweet, sugar for my honey! Tiramisu 380 php served with pistachio gelato, and Torta caprese 380 php (chocolate cake). Pick your poison. BOTH FOR MEEE! <3 Perfectly paired with Salvatore Cuomo‘s strong Italian coffee. Black please?
Waaaaait! Salvatore Cuomo also offers high tea! This special Italian set has 13 kinds of sweet & savoury delights sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. Just like mine, see? ;) 800 php, kumpletos rekados!
So what’s your verdict Kap? 1 whole week going around Italy on our last leg, you better get used to eating pizza & pasta! :P That, or bring bigas & rice cooker.. and several cans of corned beef & sardinas to keep you satisfied. Good luck on your mantra of traveling light. ;))
In fairness, Kap liked everything we ate & said ok naman daw mag-pizza, BUT ADDED.. “napang ulam sa kanin”. FTW! @_@ Oh Kap my Kap!
