Red Egg Calamari by Potluckers: MEH
Much like the restaurant's overall demeanor, this dish was flashy and lavish. Starting from the serving size, to the plating and presentation, to the copious amount of salted egg used. It should really have been a treat to have this. Unfortunately, when you order any dish with salted egg, you are not ordering the saltiness but the linamnam (umami taste). While this dish is malinamnam, this was just a tad too salty. I tried fixing it by asking for lemon but it just made it worse (some acidity usually works with calamari but i guess the salted egg changed the entire flavor profile of the dish that's why the lemon didn't work) .
The batter was fine, but a little pepper wouldn't have hurt. It was crisp and the squid were thick enough so you can enjoy sinking your teeth into it. However, since it was a bit too salty, I had a hard time tasting the sweetness of the squid. Nevertheless, it was made with such quality that i felt the confidence of the chef when he or she was doing it, that he or she wanted to prove something.
To be fair, this was an appetizer. Maybe that's the reason it was more salty than usual. I ordered rice with it thinking there's so much of it that I don't need an additional viand. Each order is good for 2-3 people, and I mean 2-3 me. My ex and I have always been suspicious when the menu says good for 2-3. We love food and we always get judged on how much we eat. Now that I do these food reviews, not to mention i usually do it alone, i feel like there is always something (someone) missing. Heniwey. I swear, their servings are generous, tunay na pang two to three.
One look at the restaurant, with its name lettershaped with incandescent lights ablazing, it screams "masarap dito, go here and eat." Unfortunately, I was disappointed with my first try. But again, we are all for second chances, right? Next time I'll bring people.

Kinda intimidating at first as the restaurant is empty when we came. But nevertheless, since we really wanted to try this, we entered. Smiling faces welcomed us. ️
We ordered Red Egg Calamari, which became my instant favorite. I also tried their beef spareribs, and it's good for me (olives! ). The one in the picture is their deep fried ginger chicken. Good for sharing I must say!
P.S. They serve complimentary bread as appetizer. Cool stuff! 🏻
