It was one hot Sunday afternoon and me and my bestfriend just got out of gym (Fitness First - The Fort). So we went around the BGC and Serendra area and check which resto we want to dine in for our lunch/merienda. And we found one interesting shop - Chelsea. The exteriors and the interiors of the shop was good giving a great ambiance and a cool feel. So we went in and try to check on the menu.
I wish I could try all of them but diet's the priority. So we decided to splurge a bit and order a pasta, a pizza and a cake for dessert. Off first is the pasta. We took in their popular Classic Carbonara and all I could say was that it was a blissful dining experience. The creaminess of the pasta was just the right one unlike most carbonaras that have overpowering flavors. The pasta was well cooked and each bite is definitely worth it. Price: PHP 450
Up next we had the pizza. By the way we did not finish the 10" "All-Meat" pizza as we were already full. The bread was perfect and so as the meat toppings. The sauce was just the right amount and suited well to balance out the strength of the meat and the flavor of the cheese. Adding more texture and flavor to the pizza are the generously chopped pieces of mushroom which were really fresh and truly a delight to eat. Price: PHP 495
For the dessert, we decided to stick with something more traditional - NY Cheesecake. All I could say was "Wow!". The taste, texture and presentation were all commendable thus summing up a great dining experience for me and my bestfriend. Price: PHP 310.
Chelsea Market & Cafe might be on a high end in terms of price but it is worth the try. There are other food in their menu that is truly interesting to try. I am certain I would go back to this store and experience more great food.
