If you’ve just been eating the same old meat like pork, beef and chicken for a lengthy period now, many times, it would be a welcome respite to have something else..
Not just goat meat, or carabeef but say ‘lamb’ — the favorite food in the Bible. And so we did when we dined at Brique in Ayala Center.
This was the lamb adobo that we had. Ok, t’was reasonably priced.
Looking closely tho, all it really had were some leeks and garlic — not even the usual oiliness of adobo could be found which was good, at least in regards to the oil as it became sort of healthy..
Other than that, well. Frankly, the dish was bland — even with some renown sauce added to it — it was still bland. While the meat could have something to do with its taste, guess it was just a poor recipe.
Brique could have improved on it by adding some herbs and spices, yeah, along with some garnishings — like spinach, lettuce or even tomatoes. Even if it may look like a burger, at least its got flavor.
More so, missing out on so many of their drinks listed on their menu was just a little too upsetting, that it was kinda funny already.
Anyway, if only for the ambiance, t’was okay — yes, the service, too.
