Molito Commercial Complex (New Wing)
Alabang, Muntinlupa City
My, my…two months since my last post! I’ve several things I’ve been meaning to blog about, but let’s start of Mommysom’s second blogging year with a cheesy post. Literally, cheesy.. as in several pounds of cheese!
We’re at Molito quite frequently, and we always see Parmigiano with a full house. One rainy evening on an impromptu date night, the Hubby and I were looking to try something new. Parmigiano, with it’s visible warm and bright interiors, looked inviting while we were walking in the gloomy weather, so we took a chance that we would have a table. And as the Pasta Fates would have it, we were seated at a cozy table right away.
Since it was our first time, we asked for recommendations from our friendly server. He was very helpful, and was very pleasant too. Kudos for service like this; it always makes the meal more satisfying.
You can find their menu here. Anyway, as we were set on sharing a pizza and pasta, we went with the Tre Salciccia (meat lovers pizza) and the Pasta del Parmigiano (we had to try the namesake, right?). After ordering, we had a chance to look around while waiting for our dinner and enjoying the complimentary starters.
Before they brought our pizza out though, we were in for a surprise. Our friendly waiter (sorry, I forgot his name!) asked us if we wanted to watch the pasta being prepared. We said sure, so he led us to this guy who was next to what I thought was this humongous prop of cheese.
Totoong cheese pala! I thought it wasn’t real cheese and was just a prop. I found out that this cheese wheel was called the Parmigiano Reggiano Wheel, which usually estimates at a whopping 38kg.
Overall, it was a very relaxed and enjoyable meal. I enjoyed the pasta more than the pizza, while the hubby enjoyed the pizza over the pasta. We both had lots of both though, so it’s a win in my book. We’ll surely bring the kids here so they can watch that big blob of cheese light up!
