Gustaeu’s Restaurant: Ratatouille Food Come to Life?

Gustaeu’s (hhmmm, a before e) has set itself up in the city of Baguio.  I don’t know (at this point) if it’s anything like the Gusteau’s we saw in the movie , Ratatouille and I don’t know if it’s related to the Gusteau’s found in Davao.  (Probably not, since that’s a crab house. *hee)  Nevertheless, it’s worth a try.

Located in Albergo Hotel, their establishment is pretty spacious (…uhm, lengthwise mostly).  The walls are decorated with vibrant splashes of color.  Thumbing through the pages of the menu, we found that it was packed with a vast selection of soups, salads, appetizers, quick sides, all day breakfast meals, burgers, rice meals, rice toppings, Chinese meals, steaks, desserts and also pizza.  Gustaeu’s specials are also available.

Race and I came to Gustaeu’s for a late lunch.  It’s safe to assume we were starving and so we ordered a number of dishes.  Race got Alvin’s (one of the chefs, the male attendant said) chicken cordon bleu and a choco ice cream shake.  I couldn’t decide just yet so I got a strawberry ice cream shake.  The chili with cheese soup got my attention and I ordered a bowl of that, too.  (What a contrast right?  Hot and cold.  \m/)  Having kept one of the menus by my side, I finally thought about getting Gustaeu’s supreme pizza.  As if the ice cream shakes were not enough, we also got banana split to follow later.

The soup looked like chili con…wet chili con…cheese.  The soup just had the right spiciness.  But be careful, it can get caught in your throat if you sip from the spoon the wrong way.  Race’s cordon bleu was tasty too (with matching stringy cheese when you cut into it.)  It was served with java rice, salad and complimentary soup.  For the ice cream shakes, I sort of wanted it creamier but it was okay.  I should’ve asked if they blended it with ice or with milk.  (When I worked at the 19th tee in Camp John Hay, we made these shakes just with scoops of ice cream and a glass of milk.)  The dollop of cream didn’t do anything for creaminess.  It was a dollop alright, a blob of shapeless sort of melted cream.

The chili soup was a hefty serving on its own and I took some time finishing it off.  When I did, the pizza was delivered to our table (by a quick moving attendant that gave me a fright every time she came.  She just popped out of nowhere!  Or maybe it was just me.  My brother always said, I was a jumpy chef.  I don’t cook, mind you.  =b)

Speaking of fright, meet the ghostly salt shaker. Whoooooo. =))

The pizza had everything on it, bacon bits, special ham, pepperoni, pineapple, onions, green pepper, black olives, mushrooms and three kinds of cheeses (mozzarella, cheddar and parmesan).  The parmesan gave the pizza a strange smell.  It must’ve been a reaction to the heat *hihi.  Every slice was thin (just the way I like it).  It was so thin in fact; it was cracking under the weight of all the toppings.  Getting slices from the pan, you’ll also be treated to that string cheese effect.  Weeee!

When we had enough pizza, we got the rest of it to go and we waited for our dessert.  The ice cream scoops in the banana split were generous enough though the edges of the dish were a bit narrow.  It had choco chips, choco ripple, dollops of shapeless melted cream and cherries on top.  A good and tasty dessert.  (“,) It hit the right spot with our sweet cravings.

On the cover of the Gustaeu’s menu, it said it’s the most exciting place in the city.  Not really that exciting (and not what I imagined food from Ratatouille’s Gusteau’s would taste like, I bet it would’ve been better =D  Oh man, would i love to get a taste of those thinly sliced veggies in the ratatouille!), on the other hand, they served good food.
