It has been ages since I last went to Greenbelt. While strolling around Greenbelt 5 last Saturday, I saw a new restaurant beside CPK called Krazy Garlik. The name catched my attention right away since I love garlic! I love how it gives twist to the taste of the food. Ooooh, really yum yum! 🙂 The restaurant was also full, which made me more intrigued.
And so there we were, waiting for our turn to be given a seat at Krazy Garlic. Luckily, we didn’t have to wait that long. 🙂 We tried out the following:
Garlicky Crispy Pata (PHP 595)– It’s deep fried pork leg topped w/ fried garlic in olive oil. This is sort of a safe dish to order. If there would be any difference in its taste from other restaurants, it would be very minimal. I just loved how they served it really crispy and tender, probably the most important for this dish to sell out. Of course, I really liked the chopped fried garlic sprinkled all over the Crispy Pata. It gave the dish that yummy garlic taste. 🙂 The sauce was the ordinary Crispy Pata vinegar-soy-onion sauce mix. Not bad at all because for me, a Crispy Pata won’t be complete without it. 🙂 This dish is for sharing, 4 – 5 persons.
Oxtail and Chorizo Stew (PHP 595)– It is simmered w/ tomatoes, Spanish chorizo and garlic. It’s something new, which is worth trying. Since they used oxtail, the meat was really really tender. The taste of the garlic was not that evident though because of the strong taste of the tomato sauce. It was still very delicious. It had a taste of sweetness and a little bit of sourness in it. This serves 2 persons, but it can be good enough to share up to 3 if you are ordering other main dishes as well.
Mushroom Matsuri (PHP 345)– It’s a festival of mushrooms sauteed japanese style. In other words, it’s different kinds of mushroom in one dish. The thick sauce tasted like the usual japanese sauce that has some sweetness and saltiness in it. I’m not really sure what it’s called. For me, there was nothing really special in this dish. I just gave it a try since I love mushrooms. It didn’t meet my expectations though. This dish serves 3 persons.
Garlic Fried Rice (PHP 125)– It’s the usual rice mixed with fried garlic. The taste of the garlic was really evident and you could see the bits and pieces of chopped garlic all over, unlike in other restaurants where their garlic rice is close to a plain rice. Hehe! One order seves 3 to 4 persons.
I’ll definitely be back at Krazy Garlik Greenbelt to try out their other dishes. They have a wide variety of choices. I have yet to try their pizza and pasta, which our neighboring table ordered. Hehe! 🙂
