As I mentioned on my other article about being happier in marriage, one of the tips I have provided was to have fun together! How can dining out be boring? Never, right? Filling our tummy is always a happy feeling! As a married couple, we see to it that we go out once in a while. It doesn’t have to be fancy but it has been our habit of going out on my Friday (at work). This time, we decided to meet our good friend for early dinner. Since I love Filipino food (obviously I am a Filipina *giggles*), our friend suggested this gastro pub located in the Summerlin area.
Frequently, when we go out to dinner, I am in blogger mode and hyper attentive, taking notes about prices, food items, etc but that night, we were there just for fun. However, after enjoying my meal ( and of course, the company), I was so impressed with everything that I posted to Instagram before we were even done. I couldn’t resist the urge to tell everyone about the food they have because I was not expecting that it is not the typical Filipino Classic food. Everything seems to be made with a twist! Sadly, I was unable to try it all since the portions were plentiful and the items on the menu that caught my eye were far too many to count.
Our group narrowed our selections down to Roasted Bone Marrow, served with bread and a mango salad (sad, I’ve lost my photo), the Fried Squid Balls from the Tapas menu complimented with a sweet and sour sauce, Chicken Inasal also with the Mango Salad and a side of Garlic Rice, Pork Sisig, Pansit Bami, Adobo Rice and Turon ala Mode for dessert.
As I posted my first food selfie on my Instagram, a few moments later, I had the privilege to meet the man behind The Cutting Board. It was an honor to meet Barry Picazo, the culinary genius behind the super “sarap” flavors we definitely savored.
Everyone in our group seemed to have their favorites, but we all shared everything family style allowing us all to each get our fill of the tasty variety. Typically, when I review a restaurant, I will key in on a specific item to fixate on. Eating at The Cutting Board made that difficult as the foods were all scrumptious and the flavors brought back many memories from home, which is the best compliment I can give to a Filipino themed eatery.
