I was simply browsing through our Singapore memorabilia last Thursday night when I saw a shot I took straight from Cebu Pacific's In-Flight Magazine called Smile. One of the writers was raving about The Room Upstairs, a resto slash posh furniture store located at LRI Design Plaza. And when I realized that my voice-over recording the following day will also be held there, I told myself that I should definitely check the place out after work.
A good two hours later, I was strutting towards the resto and super excited to try one of their signature dishes. It turned out that the furniture pieces on display were off limits to any kind of photography which was really a downer considering the fact that I needed to present some form of ambiance to this blog story. It would have been great to show you how the furniture accents added another dimension to the whole dining experience.
Nevertheless, I completely forgot all about it when my order arrived 15 minutes later.
Notice the finely chopped tuyo flakes?
Pasta cooked al dente coated with an amazing pesto sauce with just a hint of salty-sweet-spiciness. The deep, earthy flavor coming from the basil, garlic and nut mixture fuses beautifully with the tempered saltiness of the tuyo flakes. Served with a drizzle of olive oil and a piece of garlic bread, this dish truly deserves a spot in my list of most favorite pasta dishes of all time.
This drink is love, love, love! It was a refreshingly cool drink that truly deserved its bestseller status. Its very prominent lemongrass taste with a punch of caramel was truly amazing to the point that I actually thought that I could have 10 more and will still leave me craving for a lot more. It was that addictive!
I had a strange feeling of deja vu when I first tasted the drink. And when I tried hard to figure out why, I realized that we had the same drink when we went to Maribago Beach Resort last December. I first fell in love with the lemongrass drink there and when I tasted it for the second time at The Room Upstairs, I immediately felt that my day became even brighter than usual.
The Room Upstairs Desserts: Oreo Cheesecake and Cherry Cheesecake (PHP110/slice)
After meal time, I decided to have some dessert.
It would have been great though if I were able to try their cakes; but, since I was really full, I decided to have some cookies instead.
Both cookies boast of an elegantly smooth texture and delightfully sweet nature, highlighted by crunchy walnuts inside them making both cookies more delish and really fun to eat.
