Opus is another brainchild of the Repuliq Group (the same owners of the Mega-Club Repuliq right across it) and is under the leadership and creativity of celebrity Chef Carlo Miguel. Our very good friend Stephen has been inviting us over for a long time now and last month we finally had a chance to visit. Though it was technically my third time to visit Opus, it was my first time to sample the food. The first two times I was there, I was only able to try their cocktails.
We were presented their dinner menu where you could choose either a 2-course dinner (Php 780.00) or a 3-course dinner (Php 980.00). They had 3 selections for Starters and Entrees and 2 choices for dessert. We decided to order one of each to be able to sample everything.
This was their tomato and basil soup which also didn't disappoint.
Roast Chicken Ballotine with Risotto, Mushrooms and Truffle Foam
When we thought we just had enough. We were surprised with MORE! The dinner certainly didn't end with dessert because we were also given their signature cocktails (Oh how I love being spoiled! Thanks Stephen! hahaha!).
Lychee Martini with Coconut Foam
Strawberries and Lemon Margarita
Dinner and drinks surely didn't disappoint. Opus is definitely more than just a lounge. I know for some it may seem inappropriate and even weird to dine in the same place where you're "going out" but this can be a good exception to that social rule. Keep it in mind the next time you go on a date! ;)
