Homestyle goodness at The Frazzled Cook
At first glance, you'd think The Frazzled Cook was an antique store and curio shop rather than a restaurant.
No two chairs are the same. Lighting is provided by overhead lamps in different shapes, sizes, and wrappings. Shelves are lined with books new and old, toys, and other quirky ornaments. Walls are decorated with an antiquated headboard, mirrors, and paintings among others. The Frazzled Cook is truly a one-of-a-kind place.
We also had Pizza Caprese (P270, pictured above). Homemade pizza crust topped with lots of cheese, big ripe tomato slices, and kesong puti. It is served with a small pitcher of spicy garlic oil on the side which you're supposed to drizzle over your pizza slice. This dish gets a big thumbs up from me too. :D
Sizzling Squid (P450, pictured above) was another flavorful offering. It is served with mango salsa, my problem with this is it's such a small appetizer that commands almost P500.
For dessert, we had Pancake ala Mode (P180, pictured above). This is the dessert that Chef Jude always recommends because it is made from scratch using their own secret recipe. The pancake is thick and chewy topped with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, maple syrup, and cinnamon powder. The combination of the warm pancake, cold ice cream, thick syrup, and cinammon is surprisingly addictive... although I couldn't help but think I can probably pull this off at home. :)
