AMICI DON BOSCO: A FRIDAY STRESS-RELIEVER

After a stressful day of seemingly endless examinations over a product that I will eventually get rid off in the next few months, my colleagues and I decided to take some time off the corporate world and just enjoy the greatness that Italian dining in Amici (Pasay Road) can offer. My new food buddy, Eden, and I shared a table over sumptuous meal and sizzling stories.πŸ™‚

My first encounter with Amici was last December 2010 in Ayala Triangle Garden when Gi and I tried Caramia’s Gelato (Caramia is Amici’s exclusive ice cream parlor). Unfortunately, I wasn’t an active blogger during that time yet, hence the failure to write down my thoughts. Tonight’s experience was a another chance.πŸ™‚

Spaghetti Red Vongole e Gamberetti Pasta (PhP298)

This was a winner!πŸ˜‰ Imagine spaghetti al dente in marinara sauce topped off with the bounties of the sea!πŸ™‚ Eden and I seriously got gaga over the over-sized shrimps and the countless clams and scallops. The sauce was on the sour side which gave it a real Italian kick. I simply loved it!πŸ™‚

Risotto Balls (PhP185)

We also ordered these nice-looking Risotto Balls. The Risotto inside the crispy circular coating was oozing with creaminess! I loved it. I am a Risotto fanatic and this one did not disappoint in all aspects – serving size, taste, texture, and price, most importantly.πŸ™‚

Chow time!πŸ˜‰ Look at how enticing that shrimp was!πŸ˜‰ My Mareng Lyn would surely love it here!πŸ™‚

Choco Tartufo (PhP110/slice and PhP790 for a whole ice cream cake)

Dessert came next. I had this tempting Choco Tartufo which was a mixture of vanilla and chocolate gelato mixed with cherry bits and nuts then nicely domed in a chocolate chiffon cake which was finally topped off with rich chocolate ganache!πŸ˜‰ Need I say more?πŸ™‚ The ants came running towards our table!πŸ™‚ I had to fight for my gelato cake!

Peach Walnut Passion (PhP110/slice or PhP780 for a whole gelato cake)

Eden, on the other hand, had this Peach Walnut Passion which I thought was equally delicious after taking a small bite.πŸ™‚

I also took some shots of the gelato, cakes, and gelato cakes they had in order to tempt you more.πŸ™‚ Most of the gelato are at a price PhP70 – PhP75 per scoop; the cakes, at PhP65 – PhP85; and all the gelato cakes at PhP110. Β Bon Appetite!πŸ˜‰

This is one of my favorites!πŸ™‚

This was the ‘whole’ version of the ‘slice’ that I had.πŸ™‚

Eden’s choiceπŸ˜‰
