Last March, the Chinese Dimpol celebrated his birthday by treating some of our AF (Awesome Friends) in our new favorite Italian Restaurant, LINGUINI FINI!!!!
The Chinese Adonis had our valentimes date before in LINGUINI FINI and we enjoyed our dinner so much that we thought of sharing the love with our friends!
This Italian restaurant is located in SM Fashion Hall amidst the long walk way of restaurants.
Even if I got out of work early, I was still the last one to arrive!
Dear Suet and Albert!
Pareng Jun and Mareng Gail!
THE POGI BIRTHDAY BOY!
BRACE YOURSELVES because
FOOD IS HERE!
As always we started off with the complimentary bread that was so YUM with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and parmesan cheese!
Our eatfest officially began with the LINGUINI FINI Picante Salad with Hanger Steak Tips (P350.00).
Loved how the salad was fresh and tasted light and citrusy with the vinaigrette. The chilis certainly added a pleasant kick with every bite!
The Chinese Adonis ordered the LINGUINI FINI The Bronx (P495.00) -- a very meaty and cheesy concoction!
The pizza was thin crust and had that pleasant chewy crunch. One slice may be packed with toppings but it was not heavy in the tummy!
Since we loved LINGUINI FINI Pizzas so much we also got the Cheese (P290.00)! This was after all, the Chinese Dimpol's favorite!
For pasta, we got the LINGUINI FINI Baked Ziti (lite P250.00) and we were all loving the sweet yet robust tomato sauce.
Mareng Gail had the Truffle Fettucini Lite (P280.00) and it was more than enough for her.
She raved at the hearty truffle sauce that gave such a mouth watering aroma!
Since I fell in love so much with the al dente home made pasta the first time we ate in LINGUINI FINI, I couldn't resist ordering a plate of Linguini Vongole Lite (P260.00)!
And like the last time, clams were so tasty with the oil, garlic, and butter reduction. The sweet chunks of tomato added another layer of delicious flavor for the whole pasta dish!

My very generous husband shared his birthday dessert with us!
The ice cream and tiramisu were certainly very YUM!
Afterwards, the boys started chatting away!
I don't know what they're talking about because us girls were so busy talking about politics.
