Chelsea Market & Cafe: Gourmet Comfort Food

One thing that I love about Chelsea is the ambiance. My husband said that it reminds him of Dean and Deluca in New York but I can't vouch for him since I have not been to New York in years. It's like a deli / restaurant with shelves of imported merchandise not found in our local supermarkets ranging from various herbs and spices to German beers. And beside these shelves are the tables for the guests. It is quite cramped but that did not stop me from going since I've heard good things about Chelsea.




The waiters first served complimentary focaccia bread with roasted garlic, olive oil, cheese, and vinegar. I absolutely love garlic and this was definitely a different twist for me.  I am used to bread with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and grated Parmesan cheese so I was delighted to see them do something differently with the garlic. 

Free yummy bread with roasted garlic!

Molten Cheese Risotto Balls @ PHP295.00 - It's served with Spicy jalapeño cheese sauce, deep-fried olives, Parmesan cheese. Not something I would order again as I don't even remember what it tasted like.
 
Prawn Gambas in Chorizo-Parsley Butter @ PHP495.00

The Classic Creamy Fettucine Carbonara @ PHP450.00. As the name suggests, it was indeed very creamy and for all those carbonara and pasta lovers, I strongly recommend this.

Five Cheese Pizza @ PHP 775.00 served with five Chelsea cheeses, Asian mushrooms, apple and arugula salad
Herb Walnut Crusted Chilean Seabass @ PHP895.00 served with rosemary-orange Beurre Blanc. mashed potatoes, braised asparagus

After we were all done and stuffed ourselves silly, we noticed that all the other tables were ordering cheese fondue. Even though we were so full, we had to try it and I' m so glad we did. The cheese fondue was really really good, even better than the fondue I tried in Switzerland. The fondue had a hint of wine but it was not overpowering and the consistency of the cheese was perfect. Even though my brain was screaming, 'Stop! Think of all the calories!,' it was just too tempting and yummy. Besides, it's not everyday that we get to eat good food.
Jalapeño Cheddar and Swiss Emmental Fondue @ PHP880.00 served with served with tortilla chips, crusty bread, boiled baby potatoes and fresh market vegetables

Choc Nut served with our coffee - a perfect way to end our perfect dinner
With all the laughter and chatter and with everyone enjoying the good food, cocktails, and the homey ambiance, it was indeed a very memorable dining experience. It's just one of those places that I find ideal for an intimate family meal, a girls night out, and even a date. (It can get quite full so I suggest calling beforehand to make reservations). I'll definitely be back for more.
