Fish out of water: Greenbelt 5

I’ve been wanting to dine in at GB5's fish out of water since its opening, finally...

As the name goes, Fish out of water offers aquarium/submarine type of ambiance with an al fresco extension that has the wonderful view of church and GB3 and GB5’s landscape sceneries. The interior is designed to catch interest, is creative and relaxing. It is indeed a nice place to mingle with friends or family.

One of the reasons why I come back to a restaurant is the service and their service so far is good and efficient.

Of course the food; They carries extensive choices of Filipino cuisines with inventive twist which I found very interesting. Each servings is big enough for sharing.

For our orders:

Kuhol and Hibi Chowder. P139
Anyway to those of you who don't know, kuhol is snail and hibi is dried baby shrimp.
This soup is really really really good and filling....mmmm yummy! I think I can consume 3 orders of this... lolz!

Smoked fish Pizza.P249
This pizza is remarkable and is sooo tasty, I am recommending this pizza to people who will dine in. :)

Grilled Sarangani Bay Milkfish Belly. P299.00
This isn't my order but of course I've tasted a little. It taste good, fish is not fishy I mean not foul in taste( shhss how do I translate malansa in english?).

Batangas Backyard Chicken. P299
Not my order either, but since I took the 1st bite of the chicken and I found it very stale.
... The waiter agreed to replace it with a new one but according to him the chef the replacement will be stale as well so he suggests that we order a different entree. hmmm honest chef is a ++.

Would definitely come back for more...

That's All!

malansa (seafood) = fishy
malansa (meats) = gamy
