WHEN IN MANILA, fine dining restaurants are mostly located at urbane areas like Makati, Quezon City, The Fort and more. Now, dining and feeling the exclusivity ambiance with a posh vibe is now within Quezon City’s neighborhood and in the middle of a residential area!
Myons French Mediterranean Cuisine and Cafe surprised me in more ways than one. From its location to the restaurant itself, Myons has proven to us that they offer more than anyone can expect. Surrounded with residential and commercial establishments, its location can be found in the middle of Mayon Street in Quezon City. For starters, I had a difficulty finding the place since I am not from the area. But upon reaching my destination, I was awestruck with the beautiful and elegant facade! An old rustic feel with a hint of romantic and artsy vibe, Myons is purely beautiful and wonderful.
Warm greetings and service welcomed our entry. Plus points for this since I really love how courteous the staffs were. Myons interiors mystified the aura of a Parisian-meets-Mediterranean impression. The homey and classic design is just wonderful, giving everyone that exquisite feeling of a high end comfort that is within your reach.
Myons menu is a variation of French and Mediterranean dishes that promises a satisfaction like no other.
We were first offered with their signature drinks like the Fresh Fruit Smoothies | Php155. These juices are to die for since its really fresh! I really love how refreshing it is and it has fruit bits in it! Choose from their selection of watermelon, fresh grapes, cucumber, peach ginger and lychee.
To warm up and to officially start our full course dinner with Myons, their appetizing appetizers are sure-fire treat for all of us! All are just wonderful!
Delectable and mouth-watering Chillean Mussel with Saffron Cream | Php360 just warmed me up with how I foresee Myons menu. Its pure delight upon first bite of the mussel, very flavorful and fresh. Combining it with their Beef Roll with Romano Cheese and Roasted Bell Peppers | Php370.
Cured Pork Tenderloin with Mashed Potato, Mango Cilantro Salsa and Pepper Jack Cheese | Php 360 is a cheesy and meaty combination with a tangy twist of the salsa just sure hits the spot. Yum!
