Returning for Lunch at Marciano’s and What Not to Eat
June 5, 2011
I recently wrote about Marciano’s in my birthday special and two weeks later, I’m back here again after my sister decided that we will eat here as a family. To ensure that there would be no repetition of orders, I ordered different dishes. We have already ordered the Saffron Vanessa and Tenderloin with sausage (check the birthday special post for more details).
Marciano’s Bergdorf Roasted Chicken – PHP 329
Roasted chicken! Yum Yum! I’m glad this was ordered because I ate a lot of this because I didn’t have enough from the other dishes.
Marciano’s G Salmon in Caper Sauce – PHP 378
Look at the serving size! I was ashamed to try this one out because it is already too small for one person.
Marciano’s Lenox Braised Pork Belly – PHP 389
This reminds me of an inverted pyramid in the order of skin, fat, and pork in terms of amount of serving. The pork was delicious and soft but you need to take care of yourself not to eat that thick fat covering the pork within. What I did was to rotate it 180% so that I could eat the pork without touching the fat.
I liked how the sauce complemented the taste and I even tried touching the fat (and eating it too).
Marciano’s Stemple Mushroom Burger – PHP 398
Thick burger that tastes like Salisbury steak.. that’s all I can remember
Marciano’s Nate Seafood Paella – PHP 638
Rice + Mussels + Prawns + Squid all mixed together and you have paella! :) The taste is just so-so but what’s with the price? Is it because of the prawns?

I believe you would now know what I meant by “what not to order”. The serving size really doesn’t do justice to the price of these dishes. They do have some other dishes that are considered “bang for the buck” (eg. Risotto! yum yum!) but because of our bad luck, we picked the ones that were not.
I guess I’m still not used to the fine dining world. :)
