Café Plazuela: Sophisticated yet Non- Intimidating Elegance

Café Plazuela 
Sophisticated yet Non- Intimidating Elegance
Some hotels, in an attempt to please their costumers,
come up with sophisticated services, that could become
inconveniently daunting and make guests uncomfortable.
This is where Avenue Plaza Hotel in Naga City excels.

It s a beautiful and elegant hotel, yet with  non- intimidating refined
service, not the restrictive and scripted hospitality, as the warmth   
comes out naturally from the staff would make you feel at ease.


This awesome conviviality is also true in Café Plazuela,
so drop- in hotel guests would be able to experience this
distinctively cordial hospitality even without checking- in.


We dined at Café Plazuela on my daughter’s birthday,
and just as expected, we again had one of the best culinary
excursions, just like our past experiences in this restaurant. 


We started our dinner with Gambas Ala Venetian for appetizer. 
The fat prawns were marinated in garlic and olive oil and sauteed
in light spicy tomato concasse with basil. It was addicting and a
perfect prelude to what would be a splendidly wonderful dinner.


We were all agog on the Luxurious Crab Louise. 
A very tasty crabmeat and ripe mango salad, rolled in
thin crepes and served with lightly spiced cocktail sauce.
It was  so  good that we decided to order another serving. 


The Creamy Shellfish Veloute Flavoured with Saffron and Basil, 
a very creamy and delicious soup which could be a dish on it’s own. 


For the main course, we had Pan-Seared Chicken Supreme. 
It had a delightful fruity and slightly sweetish sharp aftertaste
brought about by the mango stuffing and martini apricot glaze.
It was served with white rice and sauteed fresh vegetables. 


We also had the very delicious Prawn Pascagoula. 
The huge prawns were pan seared in light garlic, basil
and tomato sauce and bathed with creamy  pumpkin-
potato puree and swerved sauteed vegetables. It went
well with rice. I believe this sophisticated dish would suit
the Pinoy palate and would make one crave for more rice. 


The Salmon Supreme Chassuer was beautifully plated
and it tastes just as good as it looks. Made of perfectly
grilled crispy salmon fillet in a bed of potato mousseline,
and served with crunchy spring vegetables and saffron. 


We all loved the savory taste of the of Seafood Medley.  
A merry mix of different delectable seafood, like prawns,
salmon, and mackerel fillet, wrapped in creamy crepes.
It was served with jasmine rice and vegetable julienne. 
This is a must try and must order dish in Café Plazuela. 

We also ordered an unrecalled tasty dish made of two
big slabs of tender pork. The meat may have been pan
seared then baked, bathed in a sweetish tangy sauce
and topped with fresh tomato and ripe mango salsa.
It was served lying in a bed of fragrant steamed rice.    

The Cappuccino Chocolate Cheesecake was divine
 It has a heavenly rich smooth texture and made  
with combination of cream cheese and Irish coffee,
and beautifully plated  served with strawberry coulis. 


The Mango Crepe had a two triangular smooth and glutinous
pancakes that gloriously melt in the mouth when eaten, bathed
in sweet thick syrup, topped with wedges of ripe mangoes and
vanilla ice cream with varied fresh fruits on the side. This is a
carve- worthy dessert and we decided to order another serving.


When they learned that it was my daughter’s birthday,
the Café Plazuela staff came singing happy birthday song
and brought us a personalized, candle- lighted  birthday
cake improvised from a very delicious Cheesecake.


We had seafood from appetizer to the main course and
the wide selection of healthy seafood dishes in the menu
makes Café Plazuela a haven for seafood lovers and the
best and the most awesome seafood destination in the city.
