Socsargen bloggers were recently invited to the soft opening of new restaurant, Asian Tongue.
Asian Tongue is a new restaurant located along Roxas East Avenue.
It was a special invitations-only event for two weeks meant to promote the restaurant before its grand opening on May 13, 2011.
We were first served with Asian Chicken Salad of chicken tips, lettuce, fried noodles and an oriental vinaigrette followed by a Tom Yum bowl and Chicken Inasal for the main course. From what we have been served, it is obviously going to be a mixed Asian cuisine type of restaurant. Our dinner was capped with Palitaw, a local dessert or snack even made of glutinous rice powder balls with ube and langka filling.
I can say that the food is good, not mind-blowingly good but not-bad good. The service, though, is over the top good. The staff attending to us were really attentive, courteous and vibrant. The restaurant was full midway through our dinner. Interiors-wise, Asian Tongue is simple Asian, non-airconditioned though so I am not sure how great they’ll fare during Gensan’s warmer weathers. They have a show kitchen so I am happy to eat there knowing I can be sure they handle food properly. One great idea also is that they actually have a reception area. I hope it’s not a grand opening thing only because it’s one thing that is lacking in most restaurants in Gensan.
Asian Tongue will open on May 13 (yes, on Friday!). Check them out and all the best.
