Before we get to the resto topic, lets talk a little something about Zarzuela first.
In Spain, the term zarzuela (pronounced thahr-thway-lah or sometimes zahr-zway-lah) refers to a type of light opera consisting of song, dance, and theater. This culinary namesake, which is a seafood soup, has a full measure of drama, typically featuring halibut, mussels, shrimp, and squid—an all-star cast in an intriguing and finely tuned broth.
Have you ever had an experience with the word, either having to watch a zarzuela or having to eat a sample of the?
If not, well how about trying this one?
The Zarzuela I'm telling you about is one of the dining spot on the East wing of Shangri La Plaza mall. The East wing has just been opened to the mall-goers last March. So it's really fresh for more to discover.
What I like about Zarzuela is the splash of orange colors on the chairs which blended well on the crisp white colors of the walls and against it is the sun striking a glimmer on the glass panels.
You see orange is a power color, being one of the healing colors, it is said to increase the craving for food. One good choice might I say for the owners. Don't you know that people who like orange are usually thoughtful and sincere. And that curiosity is a driving characteristic of orange, and with it comes exploration of new things.
As the play starts...
Do you think they can pull off a good show.
Tocino del Cielo, an upscale rendition of Maruya, you can definitely have one here. Actually, the ultimate reason why I had to try this and had a bunch of friends join me was the Pinoy Winter Wonderland. According to the menu that I read online, it's an all white halo-halo. Summer really got into my cold cravings so I just had to try theirs. But I was in utter discontent. They said it was halo-halo so I thought it was this tall or chubby glass of icy mixed fruits and delicacy but it was just a mix of nata, lychee, buko, sago which actually is just our typical buko salad. Had I known I could have ordered a different dessert. But then again, it was still good.
I just hoped my friends enjoyed the lunch as much as I did with them.
