Last Thursday June 24th, I was fortunate to attend the first Bloggers Buffet at Carol's Texan 5 organized by Mr Tristan Mirasol owner of Ten Minutes, Tops! blog. It was raining cats and dogs and large swaths of Metro Manila were battered by flood cause by tropical storm Falcon and monsoon rains. But despite the challenges that we encountered due weather condition, the event was so fun and successful.
Me and Divine arrived at Carol's Texan 5 located at the corner of Wilson and Jose Abad Santos, San Juan at exactly 5:30PM few bloggers are already there and started to talked about our journey conquering floods and braving the rain. Despite of that it was worth to be there because as the minutes went by lots of invited bloggers are arriving and I met a lot of them at last in person, then the program started and Tristan as the anchor was so happy as we all do. He introduced the owner of Carol's Texan 5 non other than Ms Carol Chan. She welcomed us with open arms as she presented her masterpiece meals which started as fab favorites of her friends and family before she arrived at this successful restaurant. As such:
Tomato Basil Pasta: This Pasta is so light and refreshing aside from the sweet and sour flavor of tomato you can also smell the aroma of basil while eating. It gives a light feeling, because the pasta being used is fettuccine that's why its so thin and you'll be asking for more Im sure, for me I omitted the cheese and you will surely taste the tomatoes and basil's perfect combination.
Dynamite Wings: A tender and delicious blend of spicy and sweet that definitely well blend in your mouth. I like spicy foods because I am Bicolana but this dish isn't that spicy as I expected to be, but it totally tempted my taste buds to eat more and more.
and the Ultimate Texan Ribs: This smokey flavored ribs was delicious, Its so succulent I almost eat the bone. The meat is tender, you can say that it was well marinated and cooked in good process. It really taste great, I can say that this one is my favorite among Carol's Texan 5 delicious dishes.
You want to know why she came up with the Carol's Texan 5 name? 'Carol's' of course from the owners first name and the special meals are all her personal recipes and for me it is a "Homemade Recipes With Top Class Taste", then 'Texan' because Ms Carol really love American foods and the '5' is the five special meals which includes Ultimate Texan Ribs,Texan Grilled Chicken,Tomato Basil Pasta w/ Shrimp, Cowboy Rib Eye Steak and the Five Star Fish and Fries that will surely satisfied your gastronomical cravings. As we taken the pictures of the prepared meals we might as well pose and took pictures of ourselves into their "Wanted Photo Wall" and the "Picture Balloon Booth" which we really enjoyed and act as celebrities.
