Myron's Place in Greenbelt 5

Amidst the strip of posh restaurants dotting the perimeter of the beautifully designed Greenbelt 5 is Myron's Place at nearly the end.  The location seems rather fitting as you can say the saved the best (arguably) for last.  You have to be purposeful if walking there, as there are many temptations in the form of other restaurants before it but I feel it is worth it as Myron's Place is one of my culinary nirvanas.  I must add the exception is if you park in the first level of Greenbelt 5's parking, one escalator up and you are right there!

Myron's Place is very pretty, well appointed with a Maitre d' in a full suit, something I found cruel in our Philippine summer, I was in a polo shirt and shorts and I was nearly at the point of discomfort as the airconditioning was losing the battle against the sun.

It was Mother's day Sunday and the family and I were in Myron's to celebrate the day with my mom.  Myron's place has a balanced menu of items ranging from an acclaimed Angus burger at P350 all the way to steaks.

My family has always had a penchant for mushroom soup, the canned kind mostly, the brand so loved and iconic that Warhol had to make pop art with it but mushroom soup has truly been taken to the next level with the Myron's place Mushroom Soup cappuccino.  Thick, flavorful and with a creamy froth, you take this rich soup in a cup.  The portion is quite generous and we ordered it split into two as I find a whole one too rich to finish alone.

The Caesar salad was too my liking, boldly flavored with strong horseraddish that almost tasted like wasabi.  It was not creamy but rather lighter on the dressing.  Only I liked it though as my family found it a bit too strong and tangy for their taste.

We ordered the "President" at P2,400 it is 500 grams or half a kilo - sounds quite impressive of US certified Angus beef ribeye served on a tilting plate.  This too is for sharing, for two if you are hungry, for four if you are not heavy eaters, for one if you need the protein to join the next Mr Philippines.  The meat is slightly charred on the outside and oh so tender on the inside and comes with four sauces - peppercorn, shiraz or red wine, mushroom and gravy that give you variety with each bite.  This is the reason we go to Myron's during those rare times we indulge in steak.

As savory as our meal was, we were too full to indulge in dessert.  I like this place, never full and never empty, a great place to treat the first special woman in your life.
