DINING: Cuillere, Manila


Cuillere (kwee-yer) : french for spoon

While French dining seems intimidating, our experience in Cuillere is just cozy-and-lipsmackingly-good! The place offers the best of French comfort food stripped of pretentions.  Never mind that the menu can't roll of my tongue right and my photos does ill justice to them because my taste buds understands just how good it was.

Kim had the Filet de Bœuf Sauce Fromage Bleu (Tenderloin Steak with Blue Cheese Sauce), cooked medium well and served on a bed of spinach and artichoke hearts. The meat is juicy, tender and lean and there was no scrimping on the cheese but does not overpower the dish. Every bite is exquisite with the blue cheese sauce. I can't stop gushing about this as much as I can't resist forking more than just a few slices.

I was already looking forward to order duck confit which they unfortunately run out of that night, (another reason to go back) I still hit jackpot with my Brochette d' Agueau (grilled lamb skewers with ratatouille mint rice). Hands down the best lamb dish I've ever had which unsurprisingly Kim who's very picky and not too adventurous also liked. Very much!

Even though our entrees were already rich, we just can't skip dessert so we ordered Apple and Calvados (stewed apples with toffee syrup, whipped cream flambeed with calvados, served with French vanilla ice cream) and Chef Kat Arce Kuhn (who owns the resto with Arlene Arce) sent us complimentary strawberry shortcake. Merci Kat!
