Sometimes, we tend to go to the most popular, to the celebrity endorsed restaurants, but we forget that the most popular doesn’t always mean great. A good example is Caldo. We found this gem when we went to Nuvali in Sta Rosa Laguna.
The food is awesome! It’s like you went into the kitchen of your grandma and asked her to whip something special for the love of your tummy. ❤
Caldo is really heirloom cooking at its finest! All the best kept recipes are here!
A complimentary appetizer was served. Crunchy, toasted bread paired with chicken liver.
Their menu is simple but I think that’s okay. It makes choosing easier.
Caldo’s version of Spanish Paella with a mixture of blended rice cooked with coconut milk.
Chicken and Chorizo Bringhe at Php 295.00
Tastes so good, even the kids loved it!
Calamari at Php 275.00
Fried but the squid is tender and not chewy.
Pineapple Binagoongan at Php 245.00
Not your usual binagoongan that is salty. Tastes a little sweet because of the pineapple and the coconut milk but it does taste spicy as well. Right mixture of all the spices.
This one’s for the white rice!
Laing con Alamang Fresca at Php 235.00
A different take on this staple Filipino dish. The Laing leaves are whole, also has coconut milk. The pork mixed with laing is crispy but with softness that melts in your mouth.
Grill Ala Carte
Stuffed Squid at Php 325.00
Like the Calamari, the squid used is fresh! Right portion of tomatoes and onions stuffed into the squid as it’s grilled.
Kesong Puti Panna Cotta at Php 150.00
This dessert will be a little off when you take the first bite. But as you mix the panna cotta with the sweet mangoes on top, there will be delight in your tastebuds.
The servers are all accommodating, that’s a very big plus to us when out dining!
Caldo definitely is worth a try. Let’s give chance to these kinds of restaurants that serve good and well thought of dishes and not those commercialized, celebrity endorsed ones.
Caldo can be found at the Fiesta Market inside Ayala Malls Solenad in Nuvali, Sta Rosa, Laguna.
