Had a scrumptious dinner with Mark last night at Metrowalk. After going all over the place in search of a restaurant (which could cater to Mark's dietary needs haha!), we finally landed at Sanctuario. Our nice dining experience at Sanctuario started when we were greeted with a smile by one of the waiting staffs.
Mark and I both had a hard time in choosing what to order because every dish in the menu looked delectable! But since Mark is on a diet because he's prepping up for a competition, we decided to just settle for sandwiches, pasta, and shakes.
The drinks were served first. I got the Watermelon Shake while Mark chose the Lemongrass Tea Shake.
Sanctuario serves a variety of not the usual pasta dishes like the Bulalo Pasta, Bangus Carbonara, and Aligue Pasta, but being the not-so-adventurous-when-it-comes-to-food type that Mark and I were, we both agreed to just settle for their Classic Carbonara. :P
I was surprised to see a carbonara without the white cream sauce. Sanctuario's version of classic carbonara had olive oil as its base sauce. It was also overflowing with crispy bacon bits, green peas, and lots of cheese! It sure tasted like the classic carbonara that we all knew of, but I must say that this one is a lot tastier and healthier! :) It also came with 2 freshly baked pan de sancutario which Mark and I both loved!
Our attention were caught by the menu's "Super Sandwiches". Aside from a variety of mouth-watering fillings in freshly baked wheat bread, the sandwiches also come with generous servings of coleslaw and chips as sidings. We ordered the Buttery Beefsteak and Three Of A Kind sandwiches. We both were expecting a medium-sized sandwich, but we were served with "super" huge ones!
Mark and I both loved the super huge, super healthy, and super yummy super sandwiches! :D
I love the Buttery Beefsteak! The tender beef strips goes perfectly well with the mildly salted butter. It also has fresh onion rings and lettuce and tangy asian dressing. And the cheddar cheese?! I soooo love how it made the sandwich more delectable! Oh! What a mouth watering dish! *drools*
The Three Of A Kind was Mark's favorite! The 3 kinds of tender and juicy sausage slices were made more enticing by the cheddar cheese, fresh onion rings and lettuce plus the asian dressing. You may also choose to add in the coleslaw for a more tangy kick.
Mark and I both enjoyed our dining experience at Sanctuario. We were supposed to have a meal just enough to satisfy our hungry stomachs, but we ended up pigging the night out haha! I also commend how neat the staff were. The waiting staff, after cleaning the table next to us, washed her hands and rubbed in some alcohol before getting to us and serving us our orders. Nice! :) We will definitely come back to this place and try out their other specialties.
With a variety of tasty dishes at very reasonable price, a very relaxing ambience, and very friendly and neat waiting staff, Sancutario is surely a perfect sanctuary for family and couples who just want to escape from all the stress and exhaustion that the city life may bring, to relax, and to enjoy some quality time while having some tasty treats. :)
