Paire – The Restaurant in Quezon City that Provides Happiness with a Cool Carnival Theme

The next 3 dishes are from their ‘Carnival‘ theme, which was created for the Valentine season. The first of the dishes from their Carnival theme is called ‘Ring Master‘ (Taco Salad), paired with gelatin-cheese appetizers. The Taco Salad is a bite-sized monster that has lettuce, slices of cheese, tomato bits, and olives in it. Hold your breath, take a big bite and taste the pickle-olive flavor merging with the savory taste of cheese and the fresh flavor of the lettuce. Mmmm… no sauce necessary!

‘Ring Master’ is a crunchy taco filled with grated cheese, mixed greens, cucumber and olives.

For the main course, they served us with the ‘Jumbo‘. It’s another monster from the Carnival theme loaded with the fulfilling flavors of its soft Fish Fillet, Beer-Marinated Chicken Wings, well-cooked Rice, Baked Tomato, and Butter Popcorn Sauce. You might notice that the rice was molded into a heart shape, fitting for the recent Valentine’s season. But Valentine’s or not, this main course is a great way to spend a very romantic date with.

The ‘Jumbo’ is a fun-filled main course.

The last dish from the Carnival theme is called ‘Bravado‘. It consists of vanilla ice cream and fried oreos topped with pink cotton candy to complete the carnival theme. The fried oreos leave a very warm chocolate flavor on the mouth, which is perfectly complemented by the cool vanilla ice cream. “Choco na vanilla, vanilla na choco…” the argument just never ends, huh?

‘Bravado’ consists of vanilla ice cream, fried oreos, and cotton candy.

The last four dishes were all desserts. It just gets better from this point on. The first wine pairing consists of four different sets of cakes and wines: Pounds+White Wine, Lemon-Almond Cake+Sparkling Wine, Carrot-Walnut Cake+Chardonnay, and Chocolate Cake + Red Wine.

 The ‘Pounds and White Wine‘ combo packs a very full-bodied flavor on the taste buds.

The ‘Pounds and White Wine’ combo tastes very clean and full.

The second pair ‘Lemon-Almond and Sparkling Wine‘ has a very bright lemony theme to its flavor.

‘Lemon-Almond and Sparkling Wine’ has a very bright sparkling lemon flavor to it.

The third pair ‘Carrot-Walnut Cake and Chardonnay‘ leaves an earthy-nutty-flavored impression.

‘Carrot-Walnut Cake and Chardonnay’ is more on the nutty-fruity side.

The last one ‘Chocolate Cake and Red Wine (Medium Sweet)” is simply smoky chocolate with the sweetness of red wine and is my favorite combination among them.

Chocolate Cake + Red Wine (Medium Sweet). This smoky-sweet combination is my favorite of the four.

Almond Slice and Amaretto Sour‘ is probably the sweetest offering during our visit and is highly recommended for those with sweet tooth. The sweet and sour combination brought a smile on my face as soon as I tasted the pair. Take a small slice of the Almond Slice, sip a little of the Amaretto Sour and then chew sloooowly. You can feel that the squishy treat tastes even better the longer it lingers inside your mouth.

‘Almond Slice and Amaretto Sour’ is a squishy treat for all the sweet tooth out there.

Spinach and Cheese + Sparkling Wine‘ in contrast, has a more mellow taste. It consists of 3 cheeses: Mozzarella, Parmesan, and Feta. Spinach is good for your health, but thankfully it doesn’t have to taste bad as Paire’s got it creatively figured for you.

‘Spinach and Triple Cheese + Sparkling Wine’. A more mellow contrast to our previous treat.

Lastly, ‘Ben & Etta‘ is a great way to start your day or warm up on cold days. It consists of a warm chocolate drink topped with cream, Choco Chip Cookies, Snicker Dockers, and Sugar Cookies. Dip the cookies onto the drink like you would with Oreos. This is actually another family recipe and was named in honor of their grandparents.

‘Ben & Etta’ is another family recipe that works well to start your day with.

It was a unique dining experience at Paire. The combinations were perfect, but I can’t resist naming a few favorites that day: the Chocolate Cake + Red Wine combo, Ligid, and Jumbo. You just gotta try them! I also can’t help but notice the ceramics that came along the themed menu. You can really see how much creativity and effort the Paire team put into their food.
