Weekend Food Choices Week 24: A European Weekend
No hubby did not take me to Europe for the weekend (how i wish!) *snicker*
I was finally able to watch Coco Avant Chanel, i film i’ve been bugging hubby about
I just wish they showed more of her fashion once she became Chanel *grin*
As if fate was playing along with our European theme for the weekend, we found ourselves, by chance, outside Gasthof
This is a German-Filipino owned restaurant which has been open for quite some time in Makati. It is well known in Boracay and Legaspi City as the home of the famous baby back ribs.
The streets surrounding Gasthof are not as nice as those around Greenbelt or Rockwell since it’s located at the old Makati area but there is a basement pay parking so you won’t have to worry about leaving your car along the street.
The ambiance is cozy, a little laid back, but good enough for a nice dinner date.
At the far end of the restaurant are sausages and cheese for sale as well as shelves of German beer and other products.
The stocks are not like that at Santis or at Bacchus but the products do give the place some character
I had wanted to order the pork knuckles but the waiter came back with sad news that the knuckles were not yet properly marinated (i was told they are soaked for 2 weeks). I was crushed … but not for long…
Gasthof Iced Tea
Hubby and i thought this was pretty good. Not your instant iced tea mix at all. I believe it had a hint of mango or some nice fruit.
Oh well …
We’re definitely going back for the ribs and the elusive pork knuckles that takes weeks to marinate (imagine that!)…
