Zuni Restaurant and Wine Bar at Greenbelt
Went to Zuni at Greenbelt for dinner and enjoyed their contemporary Mediterranean cuisine Photo from Zuni’s website, can’t take a decent wide shot of the resto. — Telephoto lens dilemma.
Anyway the place is really nice, with quite tasteful interiors, the servers were nice and very welcoming too.
It’s not just the usual bread and butter welcome food, they have this salsa that has anchovies, parmesan, tomatoes, beets and some other stuff that really worked in titillating my taste buds.
After that I got their Coffee Rubbed Wagyu Sirloin!
In ancho-mushroom sauce, served with potato au-gratin and feta cheese salad
When the dish was served, they offered some freshly ground pepper and OMG it took over me! I almost munched on it, good thing I managed to control myself and stop to take a shot of the dish Come on! Wagyu sirloin that is rubbed with coffee what’s not to like!?
I was curious on the effect of the coffee with the meat, so I tried it plain (without the sauce) and oh my the flavors went well! The savory goodness of the wagyu beef and the bold flavor of the coffee went really well together. The potato au-gratin (baked potatoes with cheese) was good too! it had this outer layer of cheese that had a nice tinge of crunch to it.
This one’s the thick and really flavorful sauce that came with the dish.
Ancho chile + mushroom = GOOD!
For my sweet ending I tried their Zuni Obsession
Now that’s a dessert dish that I can be obsessed with! The dessert had three main components; the moist chocolate cake, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and some mixed fruits topped with that red berry sauce.
The moist chocolate cake can be a bit overwhelming with its sweet chocolate-y goodness, but the mixed fruits (red and green apples, grapes, and mango) balance it well. and their vanilla ice cream! It’s really good, you get that full vanilla flavor that’s not so sweet. The usual vanilla ice cream is just sweet (commercial brands) but theirs was packed with that distinct vanilla flavor that’s really rave-worthy.
VERDICT: Had a great time at Zuni Restaurant and Wine Bar, Greenbelt. The food, ambiance, and service were all good. I LOVE the coffee rubbed wagyu dish, and their Zuni Obsession that I got for dessert. The place definitely deserves a return trip
VALUE FOR MONEY: Menu items here are pricey, but if there’s a special occasion, or you want to treat yourself, this is one good place to indulge in good food.
