C2 Classic Cuisine Philippines, Megamall

I wanted to have some quality me-time one lazy Sunday afternoon, and I decided to do this by doing some shopping (and some eating of course!) in SM Megamall. After doing a lot of walking and after checking off everything on my short shopping list, I decided to have a very very late lunch in C2, which is short for Classic Cuisine.

I've eaten in their Shangri-la branch, but I found that location a bit too busy and noisy. The outlet in Megamall was perfect for a relaxed solo lunch. I guess the place wasn't too busy also because of the rather odd hour I chose to eat. The restaurant serves Filipino dishes, and since I was in the mood for a lot of rice, it was perfect.

Tortang Alimasag

I decided to have their Tortang Alimasag, along with the Salted Egg Fried Rice. It turned out to be good combination, with the sweet sauce of the crab cakes complementing the salt of the rice. I kind of regretted though that I did not have their tilapia, which is one of my favorites in this restaurant. I still liked that better than the crabcakes.

Salted Egg Fried Rice

The manager, and also the server, both recommended that I have their award-winning Bibingka Souffle, so I couldn't resist. This was described as a "light and fluffy blend of coconut custard, salted egg, quezo de bola, and toasted coconut". I loved it, especially because it was sooo sweet. I did wish though that there was more of the egg and the cheese to balance off the dessert's extreme sweetness. I think this dessert alone merits another visit to C2.

YUMMM!!! If only you weren't a pescetarian, you could try my favorite there--their modified kare kare! ButI'll take note of all those you mentioned here the next time I eat at C2! They look good!
