Restaurant Review: Pasto

Published on March 20, 2010

I can’t believe that my last blog post was almost two weeks ago. I was quite busy with work and our new computer refused to turn on. And worst of all, Boyet and I got sick. Argh! Anyway, I’m back to regular programming. Hehe!

Despite our busy schedule, Boyet and I try to squeeze in spending some quality time together. I had to work overtime last week and eating at Jollibee for days did not aid my brain cells to recuperate. My feet declined to walk and my stomach could not stop grumbling so we had no other choice but to go to the nearest restaurant. We headed to Paseo Center and decided to have dinner at Pasto. My first time at Pasto was a big booboo. I was with my officemates Yen, Joie and Mei. We placed our orders before 12:00 pm and the food started to arrive after almost an hour of waiting with long intervals in between. I remember how irate we all were after numerous follow-ups to the waiting staffs. But that was years ago and the restaurant was still operating so I assumed that their service has already improved.

We were seated just below the AC vent so we were both chilling. Fortunately, Boyet opted to have soup to start up our meal. Zuppa di Funghi is cream of pureed roasted mushroom soup with garlic bread on the side.

Sorry for the poor shots. I only used my cell phone camera. ^_^

With our recent weight gain, Boyet and I made a deal to reduce our food intakes at night. So dinner is definitely not a good time to pig out. We just decided to have one pasta meal each. I got their lasagna which was layered with meat, eggplant, tomato sauce and cream. This pasta dish is a nice way to give your kids who dread eating vegetables because the eggplants were camouflaged under the pasta sheets. I loved the rich cream on top of it but it got a little too intense as I ate more of it.

Being a cream-based pasta addict, Boyet got his favorite Carbonara. Pasto serves their Carbonara using linguine cooked al dente with smoked bacon, mushrooms and a liberal amount of garlic cream sauce. I actually enjoyed this more than my lasagna so I ended up grabbing Boyet’s plate every now and then.

Their food was so-so. But their service has definitely gotten better though I am not sure if it was only because we were the only persons in the restaurant. Hihi! :)
