Just last week, we were back at one of Manila’s best resort hotel and casino to try out one of their many in-house restaurants. Our last two visits to this hotel was pretty good that’s why we were extremely excited to visit for the third time. In this edition of EATSplorations, we will be sharing with you about our Waterside – Solaire Resort and Casino EATSperience. Yes, we are back at Solaire once again and this time, to try out Waterside’s Latin American-inspired dishes. You know, ceviche, tacos, paella, asado (grill), and so much more. Make sure you are feeling hungry because at the end of this EATSperience, you will surely be filled with all the good stuff that Waterside has to offer.
Welcome to Waterside at Solaire Resort and Casino!
Before dinner started, we had a chance to go around and appreciate the beautiful ambiance of Waterside. It was very spacious, intimate, and luxurious. What we loved the most though was Waterside’s enormous open kitchen that really busy creating tasty dishes all night long.
Time to EAT!
The Tapas that we tried were pretty good. We enjoyed how filling both were without being too heavy. The croquettes were extremely appetizing and was perfectly seasoned. The stuffed baby squid was lightly seasoned and needed a bit of a push from the lovely marinara.
We enjoyed both ceviche dishes but we loved the Mahi Mahi more because it just had the right level of acidity and heat. The Lapu Lapu, on the other hand, was a tad too sour and spicy for us.
One of our favorites of this EATSperience! The chicken was super flavorful and tender. We loved the generous amount of cumin to season the slices of chicken perfectly. A must-try!
Awesome creations once again! The pulled pork was more on the sweet side and tasted a bit like pork and beans, while the soft shell crab was crispy and more savory. Both were equally tasty, it just depends on whether you are a seafood-lover or a meat-lover.
Of course, PAELLA! It was really hard to pick favorites on this part of our Waterside EATSperience because both had their own distinct flavors going for them. We just want to point out that both paella tasted really well even without lemon. Also, the rice alone had so much flavor from the broth which made it a really tasty EATSperience.
It was nice to finally know the difference between grass-fed beef and others, thanks to the chef of Waterside (So sorry, we weren’t able to get his name). This Tomahawk steak was lean and mean. We enjoyed how perfectly grilled to medium rare it was. Well done, Waterside!
After a long line of savory dishes come this lovely army of desserts, no, we are not complaining one bit because all three desserts were beautiful and tasted really good. Our favorites were the Tres Leche and Dulce de Leche because it was sweet and had lots of different layers of flavors and textures. These three desserts were really the perfect way to end a great night of nonstop eating at Waterside.
Waterside did not disappoint and it even exceeded our expectations. Awesome job by their chef and cooks for preparing a great meal filled with different Latin American-inspired dishes. So far, we enjoyed Yakumi, Red Lantern, and Waterside. What’s next for us at Solaire Resort and Casino? Stay tuned to find out. That’s it for this edition of EATSplorations! ‘Till next time!
