Marios Restaurant has been occupying the same spot in T. Morato for many many years. Like me, many people have fond memories of eating at Marios while we were children, brought there by our parents. Now with our own families, we come back to have a taste of the classic dishes that had made Marios famous like the Ceasar Salad and Mango Jubilee. One lazy Saturday we went to Marios, together with some foodie friends, to catch up over a little brunch.
Caesar Salad (P255). A classic and always a delight especially if the restaurant is not busy and they can make it table side. The secret is in the wooden bowl teeming with seasoned in flavor from the many years of use.
When I saw Baboy Damo/wild boar (P270) on the breakfast menu, I knew that was what I wanted. I love gamey meats and its rare for places to serve them since they are hard to source. They executed the baboy damo in a cross between tapa and tocino, a bit of sweet, garlicky and salty, with a bit of vinegar on the side.
The other dish Irene and I had was the Soft Shelled Crab in Coco Cream Sauce (P495). The soft shelled crabs were medium sized, quite ok size wise, and paired surprisingly well with the creamy coconut sauce.
Irene paired her meal with a refreshing Cucumber Mint Cooler.
Here’s what some of our friends had.
Fillet Mignon (P640)
Barbecued Spare Ribs (P400)
Three Mushroom Pasta with Black Truffle Oil and Bacon (P295)
Rack of Lamb
The classic dishes as well as their sumptuous Sunday lunch buffet draws people wanting to relive their memories as well as create new ones with your own families. So head on over to Marios Restau
