HARDCORE DISHES TO ROCK YOUR APPETITE!
Aside from the Original Legendary Burger, Hickory Smoked Ribs, Strawberry Basil Lemonade, the popular Mango Tango and Filipino favorites like the Sisig, expect to love the new dishes.
Get the party started with Spinach and Artichoke Dip, a creamy blend of Romano and cheddar cheese, spinach and artichoke hearts, served with crispy tortilla chips and house-made pico de gallo.
Make sure to order the California-style Cobb Salad and you’ll know why grilled chicken, avocado, roasted corn, black beans, Monterey Jack cheese, pomegranate seeds, and toasted pepitas on a bed of fresh mixed greens in a creamy ranch dressing, go perfectly together.
Who loves cheese? The Three Cheese & Roma Tomato Flatbread topped with mozzarella, Monterey Jack and cheddar cheese, Roma tomatoes and fresh basil, drizzled with cilantro pesto is so flavorful.
For the mains, the mains, the T’ruffle Mushroom Pasta brimming with shiitake mushroom, tartufata, garlic, onion, cream, truffle oil and parmesan cheese is my favorite. There’s a Spicy Vongole Pasta- clams, fresh tomatoes, garlic, onion, celery, white wine, chili flakes and lemon juice. Both dishes use fresh pasta.
