Explosiones de Atún y Tomatito
at Tomatito Sexy Tapas Bar
-BGC, Taguig, Manila, Philippines-
with the Family
Tomatito Sexy Tapas Bar is a Spanish restaurant.
Starting with the name of the establishment, even the names of its dishes, the restaurant tries way too hard to sell style without putting as much effort into substance.
The so-called tuna “explosions” consisted of poorly seared subpar/frozen tuna, pickled onion, cilantro leaf, cherry tomato (tomatito), garlicky aioli, on top of a flavorless puff pastry. The only thing explosive was the pastry, which imploded and disintegrated upon bite.
This is the kind of meal that actually angers me while it’s happening – W could see it right away: “Boys, be careful, Daddy is going to start getting upset….”
I am confident that the suckers in BGC are going to love this place: “Like OMG, the sexiest tapas bar ever!”
