Anyone who knows me would agree that I am a woman with huge appetite and passion for food.  I love to eat eat eat, try new dishes, experiment in cooking, go back a zillion times to old time favorites, and anything about food just excites me.  So please, bear with me when most of my posts are about food okay? 😉  Happy drooling!

A few weeks ago, I went out with a couple of good friends and decided to have dinner at SutrA(Yes, that’s a capital A and not a typographical error.  I have yet to figure out why the letter A is capitalized.) SutrA is a relatively new restaurant-bar at Bonifacio High Street Central – the new area where Jamba Juice is located.  If I’m not mistaken, it opened around December 2011.  It has a modern elegant facade which kind of spells “pricey” but don’t get intimidated.  I prefered al fresco dining by the balcony area outside the resto while enjoying the beautiful lights and view of BGC.  I’m not sure if that’s ideal come summertime though.

What was on my table?  I ordered Sole Fillet Roulade with Crabmeat Stuffing, Linguini Pesto, Brocolli, and Salsa Vera Cruz.  Sounds mouth watering? INDEED IT WAS! *drool drool drool*

The fish was so soft, juicy, and cooked perfectly! It melted in my mouth mmm…  I love crabs and the crab stuffing was perfectly seasoned with the right seafood taste.  It came oozing out of the juicy fish like a treasure in every bite.  At the bottom of the Sole Fillet was the Linguini pesto which was perfectly cooked as well.  I like how the pesto was light and not too garlic-y so it balances the dish.  The pieces of Brocolli were all fresh and crisp and the salsa vera cruz infused a nice sweet-sour contrast to the savory dish.  I was so happy with it!  I think I finished it in five minutes. 🙂 *Nomnomnom*

I’ve heard others say that SutrA’s food is too pricey but I don’t think it is.  Prices of SutrA’s dishes are definitely a tad higher than your usual weekend dining but I think you get your money’s worth and that’s what’s important.  For my dish, I shelled out PHP475 (not inclusive of tax and service charge). See, not bad huh.  For the way it was cooked and presented, PHP475 is just right and I didn’t feel like I was robbed.  I don’t mind spending a little more than usual as long as I get my money’s worth. 

So for all of you fellow food lovers out there, give SutrA a try the next time you go to BGC.  Trust me, it’s worth a try! 😉

Happy Tummy,

Abby Wasabi
