A meal for free at my current favorite restaurant.
As a professional food writer, it’s incumbent on me to keep my restaurant preferences to myself. I write about so many aspects of the food industry and the brilliant people that make it run, so it’s really best to keep my mind open and my mouth shut.
I can’t seem to do that with Shi Lin however. I find that I love it without limit. I recommend it wholeheartedly to everyone I meet, and I find myself making excuses to hold meetings in the Ortigas area. If a lunch meeting is imminent, Shi Lin is the one place I will staunchly suggest. So boundless is my fondness for Shi Lin’s dumplings and Noodles with Spicy Sesame and Peanut Sauce that there was this one time that I was in the Podium eating at another restaurant, and I actually felt guilty that I wasn’t eating at Shi Lin. Oy.
Because February is all about love here on Dessert Comes First, it makes sense to me then to share my – shall I call it love? – for Shi Lin. I’m happy, and I confess, a bit jealous too, about presenting this Dinner for 2 at Shi Lin complete with two glasses of red wine (consumable in February) to complete the meal. This is a meal worth P1,500, a heaping lot that’ll have you and someone else rolling out the door afterwards.
