The Truffle Mushroom Soup was so tasty and deserved to be redundantly named because there's mushrooms everywhere! The soup was served in a big bowl/cup that I wanted to swim in the creamy goodness of the soup. It was smooth yet creamy, thick but not gooey, salty enough and I loved it!

After I cleared my soup bowl and had my more than fair share of the breads, the All-meat lasagna was immediately served to us. The word all-meat had my full attention. My love for lasagna comes 2nd to my love for pizza, so imagine my delight when it was served to us in a lyanera/llanera, the pans which we traditionally use to make leche flans? Well, this time, Chef Mira boldly broke that tradition and baked her all-meat lasagna to perfection in those little babies! The result was perfect! The lasagna was baked to perfection. For salty-food lovers, the lasagna tasted just right, enough to fill your tummy, not with butterflies but all-meaty goodness, but for non-salty food lovers, I would advice you to pair it with the bun they serve it with. The bun puts balance into the salty taste of the lasagna.
