The problem with ordering food separately when you’re in a large group (and you’re celebrating something) is that you have no idea what everyone else has ordered.
The funniest thing happened at Patio Carlito when we celebrated our friend’s birthday there. When the food arrived, we were surprised that most of us just ordered rice in different varieties.
There were 2 large plates of Paella, a large plate of Adobo Rice and 2 cups of Plain rice. Thankfully, someone had the sense to order a bowl of “Sinigang na Hipon” (Shrimp Soup) and Chicken Wings, if I’m not mistaken.
It’s a good thing the birthday girl loves rice.
The food tasted ok, nothing spectacular. A bit pricey. What I didn’t like though was the service. It was so slow. We were already starving when the food arrived.
And I also heard this really nasty rumor about a Paella incident that happened there (which I’m not going to divulge here in case it isn’t true). Careful. Careful.
I give it 3 spoons.
