On my way to the dinner, I was thinking of what I was going to have.... Would it be prime rib?? foie gras?? sea bass??? I decided that I would just wait and see what Tivoli had to offer. As I entered Tivoli, Tom and Maite were already there and he had ordered wine for everyone. While deliberating on what to order they served us CHICKEN ROULADE a complimentary appetizer.
Here was what we ordered.
Cris had Caesar Salad....
and RACK of LAMB
Tom and Maite had Foie Gras on Polenta as starters.
Tom ordered his favorite TARTAR STEAK for his main course. Tivoli has the best tartar steak!!! Every time we would eat at Tivoli .... Tom has this dish all the time. It was prepared it in front of our table.
Judging from this photo..... I think Tom enjoyed his piece de resistance....
Iggy and I decided to try their degustacion menu ( which had 6 courses... I thought it was just too much for me so I shared it with him ).
Duck Foie Gras
Saffron Mussel Soup
Pan Fried Sea Bass Paella with Lobster Espume. Maite had this dish for her main course.
Roasted Lamb Chop with Honey Crusted Breadcrumbs on a bed of braised artichokes
Lemon Tart with Raspberry sherbet
Every dish we had was very good!! from the foie gras on polenta to our main courses. Some of their entrees were small in quantity yet very fulfilling. Their plates were meticulously garnished. Our seafood was done well. I liked how they prepared the sea bass..... it simply melted in my mouth!
Thank you Tom for taking us to dinner at TIVOLI !!! It was indeed a lovely dinner. Tivoli is still one of the best restaurants in Makati when it comes to FINE DINING!!!
