Waking up from a hangover is something no one ever wants. It was quite nice that after a whole night of partying, we still managed to wake up for breakfast. So we went to the Clubhouse Restaurant and they recommended that we eat outdoors. They were right, our view was awesome. So, after a night of being awesome at the Rocca Bar, it was followed by an awesome breakfast.
Complimentary dinner bread was served. Now it came with butter and jam. Actually, if you want more dinner bread, you can ask for it. And sometimes, they even toss extra butter and jam.
I order Corned Beef (Php320) for breakfast. It was served with garlic fried rice, two sunny side eggs, and pickled veggies as side dish.
Isabel got Beef Tapa (Php350). It was also served with garlic fried rice, two sunny side eggs, and pickled veggies as side dish.
Edwin had Pork Tocino (Php320). It was served the same way the first two were.
Technically, we did not have lunch because we were still full from the breakfast that we had. After kayaking the entire island of Bellarocca, we stayed in the bar pool and we tried some shake from the Pavilion Restaurant. Lester did not have breakfast so he ordered some food. He overslept because he was so drunk.
I did not pictures of the food so I will just enumerate them along with the prices. We got Fresh Ripe Mango Shake (Php220), Fresh Watermelon Shake (Php220), Green Goddess (Php280), French Fries (Php150), and Chicken-Shitake Mushroom Soup (Php180).
All are good except for the Green Goddess. Unless you are a health buff who wants to chug down blended “I don’t know what but it smells like freshly cut grass”, then go with the fruit shakes.
Saturday, Sundown Cocktails
On our last night, Bellarocca served free cocktails by the shore between 5PM-6PM. This was called sundown cocktails. High tables were set by the beach and the guests will be able to drink cocktails for free. There are only two choices, one is alcoholic and the other is non-alcoholic. The alcoholic drink was Rum Cucumber and the non-alcoholic drink was Pandan Water.
I ordered Gamberetti (Php400). I chose penne pasta for a change. Gamberetti is shrimp pasta with red sauce. They were very generous with the shimp. I think I counted 10 large shrimps in the pasta. Isabel and I shared this meal so I asked them to split it again.
I also got Fish and Chips (Php480) for the table.
Lester got Green Curried Chicken (Php450). It was a bit spicy with a hint of curry. It was good and it was something new to my palate.
Edwin ordered Manok Inasal (Php430). It was not your typical chicken barbecue because the meat is not dry. It was juicy and the marinade was really good. How I wish that is how the chicken is in different barbecue stores here in Manila.
The dinner we had on a Saturday was the last meal we had in Bellarocca. Our checkout time is 6AM in the morning and our flight back to Manila is 8:20AM. Though they said they would be serving breakfast at 5:15AM, we knew we would not be eating not only because we no longer have monies but we also want to stay longer in our beds to maximize our stay.
