It’s the month of love again! Every February, there are always flowers, balloons and chocolates in every corner- I’m not sure if it’s just me but they’re just everywhere. Lol! I’d like to think that giving your special someone a gift shouldn’t only be happening when there’s an occasion because people (especially girls) also like getting surprised, right? But of course, the love month is like a virus- you just feel the love more and you just keep wanting to make your partner/bestfriend/family feel extra special, especially during Valentine’s Day. And what better way to celebrate it with your loved one, whether it be your partner, best friend or even a family member, than to have a fancy dinner at a French restaurant with a 4-course meal with wine? Roux is the newest French-American restaurant located at Greenbelt 3. They just recently opened last December and their dishes are absolutely mouth-watering.
I was so lucky to be able to meet their chef, Joseph Margate, who studied Culinary Arts in San Francisco and worked at several international restaurants in Boston, Seattle and New York. He’s all about quality and precision when it comes to his cooking. He even served us the dishes himself!
I tried their Valentine’s Day set menu and it’s the perfect meal to make you and your loved one’s night extra memorable.
1. Oyster Stew with Bacon, Potatoes and Tarragon.
2. Spaghetti with Uni and Salmon Caviar.
3. Chateaubriand Steak with Truffled potato Gratin and Black Peppercorn Sauce with wine, of course.
4. Molten Chocolate Cake with Ferrero Gelato and Amaretto Crumbles
Now, who wants to eat all these for free? Yes, you heard me right. Free. I’M GIVING AWAY THREE VALENTINES DINNER SET FOR TWO AT ROUX. Three couples will get a chance to win an unforgettable and romantic dinner here. The set meal per person is P1,200 (a reasonable price for the dishes you’ll be getting, actually) and you’ll be smiling the entire time because every bite will make you wiggle. This dinner for two isn’t just for couples though, you can bring your best friend or your mom to celebrate the month of love.
