Food Trip # 38 : @ Cusina de Oro (1 of 5)




Last January 9, 2010, i attended a friend's wedding in Cagayan de Oro City. MyGF and her mother had their hair and make-up done, me and myGF's dad is in their car cruising around the city to get his Barong (Filipinos most formal male garment) we came across to this one very inviting billboard sign.

i immediately forgot my manners in exclaiming "wow! they serve ostrich, i want to try that". her dad agreed and promised "you want that? tomorrow lets have our dinner there".

the next day, true to his words, her dad instructed myGF for us to meet them in Cusina de Oro after their tennis game. me and my GF had our mall tour first then we proceeded to the said resto and before we come inside, i took that photo.

for the next 5 weeks starting June 02, 2010 ill be sharing to you our meals on this resto.

first dish is this ceviche locally known as 'kinilaw' . it is a raw fish soak in vinegar then spiced w/ ginger strips; chilies; onion slices; and embellished with red bell pepper strips; seasoned with salt and black pepper; and added a slice of citrus lime locally called "suha".

a travel will not be complete without a food trip :D

I think I've seen that Ostrich serving resto feature in some tv shows when I was still there.
I'm not sure if they sell Ostrich meat here though,maybe in some other places.

aww, this makes me drool! i love fish kinilaw--this looks like malasugue (marlin).

ostrich meat tastes like beef to me. there's a resto in greenbelt 3 serving ostrich meat--can't remember the name of the place right now.:p

Oooohh... kinilaw. I usually love it with beer or wine.

And I haven't tried Ostrich meat. I wonder if we have that here in Manila.
