Red Platter Chef Recommends
The Bicol Cordon Blue
Red Platter is one of the restaurants at
the Naga City’s famous Magsaysay Strip
that we never get tired of coming back,
…as they serve delicious array of local
and international dishes at affordable
price and comfortable homey ambiance.
We had a rare chance to see a vacant
parking space in front of the restaurant
on a Saturday night so we were lucky
We started our dinner with their popular
Sinigang na Salmon Belly. I personally
never like any type of sinigang as I hate
anything that tastes sour like green mangoes
to tamarind which the main ingredient
of any of the popular Pinoy sinigang.
Unfortunately for me, this is one of my
family’s favorite dishes so I had just to bear
and grin while they swearing how delicious
and tasty the Sinigang na Salmon Belly was.
My all time favorite dish in Red Platter
is the Sizzling Seafood Combo. It is
a wonderful buffet of various fresh stir fried
fish nuggets, clams, squid rings, shrimps and
veggies served hot and sizzling with goodness.
The classic Red Platter Chicken is a must try.
It was coated with tasty breading and was
fried to crispy perfection but still very juicy.
Bicol’s Best Platter is a must for anyone dining
in Red Platter especially for tourists visiting the
Naga City as it contains two of Bicol’s famous
and iconic dishes; Pinagat and Bicol Express.
Although we already had Pinagat on
the table, I still decided to order their
new fusion dish, the Bicol Cordon Bleu.
While most traditional cordon blue uses cheese filling,
the Red Platter version makes use of Pinangat wrapped
with pounded thin breaded meat and fried perfectly.
The combination was unexpectedly delicious.
It was a perfect match like it was made in heaven.
We ended our dinner with their delicious sweet treats.
We never get tired of dining at Red Platter
as their extensive menu is varied and they
always have something new to offer.
