Casa Verde

When I first laid eyes on Casa Verde, I was naturally drawn in to the long lines and wondered what’s so special about their food. My cousin and her hubby got to try out their dishes way before I did, and she said that the food there was highly affordable – And truth be told, this just increased my interest even more. We have made plenty of attempts trying to get inside this Cebu-based resto, and this time, we were successful (And it was a couple of hours before dinner time started, so… No long lines!)

I tried their Simply Bliss cooler – A delightful, refreshing mixture of coconut milk, orange juice, and pineapple juice.

Golden Chicken Fingers – Double breaded chicken tenderloins, fried till golden. Served with honey mustard dressing, mashed potatoes, and vegetable medley. The meat could use a little salt, and this dish had me feeling queasy by the time I got to the fourth strip. But oh well, at least the honey mustard sauce was good and the breading was nice and crunchy.

Fried Cheese – Breaded cheese sticks served with a side of marinara.

Victoria’s Secret Spaghetti – Homemade meat sauce topped with oozing cheese.

Brian’s Ribs – The resto’s best seller. Baked pork ribs with a sweet and tangy piquet sauce, served with rice, corn, and carrots. Well, the piquet sauce was good… But the meat was a bit cold, and had this leathery, stringy texture? It was weird.

(Really sorry about the blurry shots!)

I think I finally understand now why this restaurant has never failed to attract crowds all the time – You basically get heaping plates of food for a very, very cheap price. No wonder students love coming here. Unfortunately though, their food is just mediocre for me. IDK, maybe we just ordered the wrong dish. I’m still glad we got to try out the food here, though.

Ambiance/Interior: 4.5/5
