Cravings: All-you-can-eat Salad and More

Friday, April 27, 2012 § 1

Cravings is one of those Katipunan restaurants that Boyfriend and I often overlook. But for his birthday, we decided to give it another visit. It was our first time to eat there after the recent renovations, and I have to say, I miss the old interiors. The old Cravings was more cozy and homey, but now it has more of a cafe vibe. The food, on the other, stayed the same. Almost.

What I love about Cravings is their unlimited soup and salad. This time, however, it was a bit of a let down. The lettuce looked a little sad on the bowl, and the soup could be thicker. I did like their citrus vinaigrette, but Boyfriend wasn't happy with the ceasar.

Chicken ala Chef Jonathan (335) We asked our waiter for his recommendation, and this house specialty came with high praises. The honey-glazed roast chicken was incredibly tender and was great with the rosemary and mushroom sauce. It had a nice balance of sweet and salty, that was complimented by the sweet Japanese corn on the side. Boyfriend had this with a cup of rice since it was too savory to be eaten by itself.

Parmesan Crusted Fish Fillet (365) I was looking for a light fish entree in the menu, but the only thing that appealed to me happens to be deep-fried. So much for being healthy. The parmesan crust was sinfully crispy, and inside lies a fillet of perfectly cooked sole. It was sprinkled with more parmesan cheese on top and came with a side of pickled cucumber. It was a nice dish, but it needed a dipping sauce, preferrably tartar or lemon butter.

Dulce de Leche Jr (80) Cravings has a wide array of pretty cakes and other pastries. We ended up choosing this dulce de leche cake to end our meal on a sweet note. The frosting was surprisingly light, and wasn't too sweet. Unfortunately, the cake was a little dry, but we did love the little pieces of butterscotch on top. I would ordered a whole slab of that if I can!

It was a pretty decent meal. Nothing spectacular, but still pretty good. Cravings has branches in Katipunan, Eastwood, Festival Supermall, Fraser Place, Shangrila Mall and Tomas Morato.
