Esprimere: Italian Deli in Ortigas (Closed)

In the busy district of Ortigas is a humble yet cozy newly opened Italian Deli called Esprimere.  You can find it at  Pearl Plaza just across the University of Asia Pacific and a few blocks away from the Philippine Stock Exchange.  It's location makes it the perfect hang out for both businessmen, employees and students alike.  Esprimere is Italian for "to express".  


Esprimere adopts a pay as you order system.  If you find it difficult to decide what to order, don't hesitate to ask the staff for suggestions.  

To those who fancy wine, be sure to drop by at Esprimere for a bottle or two. =D  Even if you're not much of alcohol drinker like me, don't miss the opportunity of enhancing your dinning through the right wine pairing. (see previous entry

Esprimere may not be spacious but it grants a nostalgic and subtle feel similar to the humble street side coffee shops in Paris.

roast beef
Roast Beef Sandwich (180 php)
Fellow Tsinoy Foodie Kurt ordered the  Roast Beef Sandwich.  The  Roast Beef Sandwich is filled with juicy chunks of pure beef, fresh lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and mayonnaise.  Kurt enjoyed the Roast Beef Sandwich.  But, he loved the panzanella (salad of bread, tomatoes and onions) side dish more.  It was a bit surprising for a meat-lover like him.  I didn't even get to try it because it was gone before I even bother to ask what it was.

Of course, the perfect way to end the meal.

red wine
While enjoying a bottle of red wine, I noticed the Koreans on the next table were enjoying some wine too.
