Fuzion Gourmet..A WhoLe New WorLd!

When payday comes, we strike! Or rather, our stomachs and taste buds do that. That's why, an ordinary Lunch turned into a food adventure. This time, we headed to a pLace nearest to us. When i first passed by this pLace, i didn't get that certain kind of puLL that wouLd make me curious to give a try. From the outside, it has an encLosed Look to it. But my whim to experience something new and a pLace in cLose proximity to our office, Fuzion Gourmet did stand a chance with me.

When we entered the "gourmet house", i was pLeasantLy surprised and the skeptic in me was put to shame. Never judge a pLace untiL you've been there. We were the onLy customers at that time, so we get to bask in the beauty of the pLace & took it aLL in without interruption. The Mediterranean concept, the interiors, brought a new variety to the ever growing seLection of restaurant themes in Cebu. For those of us who can't quite achieve the jet-setting LifestyLe of the rich & the famous, this wiLL do for the meantime. i can even imagine Princess Jasmine & ALaddin having cozy dinners here.

Since we had the pLace to ourseLves, photo op was hard to resist. The staff was very pLeasant, they just Let us roam the pLace & even offered us the use of their guitar & piano. We appreciated the gesture, but we are professionaL bathroom singers to boot and are contented with that taLent aLone. They even have a bar & a wide array of desserts to choose from.

Speaking of dessert, we got the New York Cheesecake. it was highLy recommended by the staff and the fact that we're cheesecake Lovers made it an easy seLL. it was Love at first bite for aLL of us. it was understated yet it wiLL stand out from one's memory of sweet induLgence.

New York Cheesecake (Php125)

WhiLe we were waiting for our food and finishing off the cheesecake, we happened to amuse ourseLves with identifying the various spices from their tabLe. yup, that's a tabLe. it makes a great conversation starter at meaLtimes.

Fish & rice (Php165.00)

it's originaLLy fish & chips but we preferred rice to it. They use Lamon-Lamon fish, it was deep-fried to perfection, smooth to the taste and deLicious.

Roasted Baby Back Ribs (Php195.00)
My friend sings praises for this one ( if onLy she couLd sing in reaL Life too). it was marinated and the meat was tender. She was contented for the rest of the day.

Chicken Tajine (Php195.00)

According to their menu, Chicken Tajine is made up of Moroccan stew with vegetabLes & spices served with ratatouille & couscous grain.  i didn't get the couscous grain though, i was not offered nor given the option. Guess i didn't meticousLy read through the description. i was given rice, which i accepted gratefuLLy.  i haven't eaten anything Like this before, it's something new to my taste bud. i Like the zestiness of it but the chicken was a bit tad for comfort.

Wiener SchnitzeL (Php195.00)

This dish was okay. Nothing fancy except the name. According to the menu, this is a worLd famous Austrian dish. But i doubt if Maria & Capt.Von Trapp wiLL be nationaListic for this. My other friend found it a bit hard to chew too.

Ocean BLue Lemonade (Php175.00)

For our drinks, we had the Ocean BLue Lemonade. it's sweet, refreshing but ordinary to the taste. What's not ordinary is the size of their pitcher. They were generous with the serving.

i am compeL to give this a second visit and try their other dishes. i consider this a saving grace from the nightcLubs, disco bars, and convenience store's enticing peopLe to have a good time during night time. And this is one of the reasons why you wiLL stiLL go during the day. Lahos!
