Back at Sweet Bella

Thursday, February 02, 2012

During my first visit to Sweet Bella, I was only able to try their (pricey but delicious) desserts. A late lunch with the girls secured my 2nd visit to the restaurant. I was surprised that they had actual food (ok desserts are “real” perse but you know what I mean) because upon entering the first floor, you’d be welcome by the luscious sweets.

Garden Mix Chicken Salad (P350)
romaine, mesclum, Chicken, caramelized walnuts, cherry tomatoes, grapes, feta cheese & gruyere, parmesan with grape vinaigrette

This was the first dish that arrived and when we saw it, we had the saw reaction – “Isaw!”. Mwahahahahaha You had a choice between the grape vinaigrette and honey mustard for the salad and I’m glad we chose the grape vinaigrette. Everything meshed wonderfully in this dish. It was a light and perfect start to the meal.

Rustica (P395)
Italian sausage, Hungarian, Pepperoni, Frankfurter, mozzarella, parmesan

This heavily meaty pizza wasn’t what I expected at all. I thought everything would be piled on for each slice but was surprised to see that some slices had Hungarian, some had pepperoni only and so on and so forth. It was a heck of a cheesy pizza but I’ve had better.

Farfalle Aglio Olio en Pesto with Chicken (P295)
Garlic, olive oil, sun dried totamo, hint of pesto

I’m a big fan of pesto and this farfalle did not disappoint. The pasta dripped with scrumptious flavor and it surprised me since I’m used to pasta dripping with flavor thanks to the sauce. The Farfalle Aglio Olio performed excellently. 

USDA Beef Salpicao with Steak Rice (P450)
The carnivore in me approves of this dish. The salpicao soaked in lovely garlic and I enjoyed it. The garlic rice that came with the dish was the real deal, not the cop out white rice with garlic chips on top. I could eat the garlic rice on its own without any viand – that’s how delectable it is.

We stayed on the second floor of the restaurant which made for good conversations. However, there was only 1 server assigned to our section. We visited Sweet Bella and they seemed undermanned which meant that our server wouldn’t be in our area from time to time. It became a bit frustrating trying to get service but it was because of the situation and not the performance of the server.

Though Sweet Bella is famous for its desserts, I would gladly go back for their “real food”.  Oh, if this post is getting you hungry I’ve got great news for you! Get your hands on the Sweet Bella 50% off coupon at Ensogo.
