Black Olive Cerveseria- Mediterranean Cuisine in Capitol Commons

Went to Chef Carlo Miguel's Black Olive Cerveseria in Capitol Commons for a lovely Valentine's dinner with D last February. We were set to have their Special Valentine Menu- a 3-course Mediterranean meal for 2, inclusive of  2 glasses Montrouge wine.

They gave a generous amount of toasted baguette slices to get us started.

A few minutes later, this salad of grilled watermelon, gorgonzola, salted caramel walnuts and grapes came in. 

For our mains, we had this sous vide beef medallion with red wine jus, potato gratin and french beans

The meat was not too tender but it was tasty and made even more flavorful by the red wine sauce. I love the crunchy french beans and potato gratin as well. 

Montrouge Red Wine and Tortilla con Jamon (P155)

We're really not into wine, but since we are having steak, we decided to go for red. We also ordered for an additional appetizer of this Tortilla con Jamon. It was ok, but I guess we already had too much potatoes and carbs that we did not appreciate this anymore. 

To cap off our dinner, we were served with this Semi freddo of strawberry, chocolate, toasted almonds, lemon-honey balsamico for dessert.

The dishes we tried weren't a lot, but we were completely satisfied with our dinner. Looking forward to trying out Black Olive's ala carte menu next time.

    The platting of the dessert looks pretty modern; and it looks like it has good texture too! :)
