Aresi Restaurant & Bar: Pizza and Dessert (Court Meridian Hotel Subic Zambales)

Subic, Zambales, Philippines

Don't miscontrue the signage of Aresi Restaurant & Bar to be some ordinary restaurant and bar like me as it is actually an Italian restaurant.

Upon stepping in, you'll find that it has a nice cozy and classy but not too upscale feel.

aresi special
Aresi Special (385 php)
Seeing the brick oven outside hinted to us that they offered brick-oven pizzas so we ordered two pizza variants.  The first one is the Aresi Special.  Since it carries their name and has the word special on it, we were enticed to try it.  A bite of this sent me to heaven!  I was literally send floating in the air with its savor pepperoni, sweet and crunchy bell peppers and onions, fragrant olives, soft mushroom and delicately crisp and chewy dough consistency.  

five cheese pizza
Five Cheese (335 php)
As far as cheese pizzas go, Aresi's Five Cheese has successfully left a great impression upon me all because the bleu cheese perfectly blended with the other four cheese.

Pizza Making Process

I specially appreciated their pizza making procedure.  They only cook one pizza at a time so the chef can deliver it's superb quality with precision.

vanilla panna cotta
Vanilla Panna Cotta (135 php)
The texture of the Vanilla Panna Cotta is smooth like a soy bean pudding which I liked.  However, I found it too sweet for my preference. 

crepe samurai
Crepe Samurai (155 php)
The Crepe Samurai has perfectly fluffy and smooth crepes with orange caramel glaze and vanilla ice cream.  This is a good version. 
fruit platter
Fruit Platter (295 php)
The Fruit Platter is a large plateful of ripe mangoes, banana (underneath the mangoes), oranges, pineapple and watermelon.

apple crumble
Apple Crumble (185 php)
I found the crumbs of he Apple Crumble to be quite addictive!  The consistency reminds me of Rowena's which I love.  The stewed apple is a bit too sweet for me but it's okay since I tamed it down with the vanilla ice cream.

chocolate lava cake
Chocolate Lava Cake (285 php)
Everyone was going loco over the rich, moist gooey goodness of the Chocolate Lava Cake.  My companions didn't even want to share.

strawberry shake
Strawberry Shake (65 php)
Since all our other shake orders were fresh, I thought the Strawberry Shake would be fresh too but it wasn't.  It tasted like super sweet cough syrup which didn't appeal to me.

Frozen Cocktails
strawberry margarita
Strawberry Margarita Virgin (No alcohol) (115 php)
The Strawberry Margarita is similar to the shake but with a more shaved ice consistency.

Coffee Coolers

frozen java java
Frozen Java-Java (105 php)
The Frozen Java-Java is so delicious!  I loved that it has a strong coffee flavor and very fine crushed ice blend.  The vanilla ice cream adds to the guilt and comfort which I don't mind having. =)

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
I'd gladly visit Aresi Restaurant & Bar for it's brick oven pizza anytime!  I'm really impressed with their quality as such a bargain price too.
