9 April 2013. Ma's orders came out first. Everywhere we eat, she always has to have soup. Terry's pumpkin soup was OK, she said.
|Pumpkin Soup. A singular blend of pumpkin and saffron, created by the Spanish Clarisse nuns in the 16th century. A classic at Terry's! 180 pesos|
And if it's on the menu, she always has to have the baked oysters. Me, I like 'em raw and quivering with fear as they go down the hatch. I passed on these.
|Oven-Baked Oysters (6 pieces). Coated with our finest spinach-La Courala-Parmesan Rémoulade cream. 560 pesos|
I've been traumatised by many bad croquettes over the years, so I wasn't too excited about ordering these, but Ma insisted. Good call! So this is what a croquette is supposed to be: light and crispy on the outside, smooth and gooey inside. And I could really taste the ham and the chicken. Completely different from the heavy, greasy bullet-like things I've eaten in the past. Quite addicting.
|Jamón Serrano And Chicken Croquettes (6 pieces). Crisp-tender Jamón Serrano and chicken Béchamel croquettes. One of our best sellers! 290 pesos|
