Zarzuela

The good thing about malls having extensions (or expansions) is that you are sure to find not only global fashion brands entering the retail scene but also new food concepts or even new restaurants to try.

The newly opened Shangri-la East Wing has brought forth the birth of new and exciting food concepts that are worth trying and the latest that we tried at Shangri-la's East Wing is Zarzuela, a restaurant that serves modern Filipino cuisine. 

The restaurant has two separate seating areas, they have tables in the enclosed dining area, but for this particular day, we wanted to sit in the outdoor dining area.  The temperature outside is wonderfully low and sitting by the glass windows with the view would be perfect.




We're ready to try Zarzuela's dishes!



Looking at the menu, Mickey and I knew that we had to try their Krispy Pork Binagoongan


This dish did not fail to please our palate, the saltiness was controlled and the krispiness of the pork is present with every bite.  Definitely a must try!

  
We also ordered the Shrimp and Pork Tortang Talong


This dish is simple, but it really tastes good!


We also ordered Zarzuela's Chorizo Rice, one of their specialty rice dishes


and as usual, it did not disappoint!  It was so flavorful!


Zarzuela is one of those restaurants where the food tastes great, the dishes are surprisingly priced just right (servings are good for two too!) and definitely one where you'll bring your balikbayan friends to try.

If ever you feel like having some homegrown Filipino cuisine with a modern twist, try Zarzuela at the 6th level of the newly opened Shangri-la East Wing.

Have a great weekend everyone!
