CUR8

#cebutrip I had weekend lunch with family here. The customer service and atmosphere was excellent, however, all the food we ordered, while visually appetizing, fared poorly in terms of taste. All of the savory dishes we ordered were on the sweet side and seriously lacked the complex flavors one expects from an upscale casual dining restaurant. Modern interpretations of traditional dishes are exciting but they should still exude the flavors of the original. The dragonfuit "kinilaw" tasted okay as a refreshing salad of some other kind but lacked the sourness you expect from a kinilaw. The Cambodian Yellow Curry and Beef Brisket Adobo had nice, very tender meat but both were too sweet. The curry was served with mushy pita bread, while the adobo was very watery. As for the beef rendang bao, it had nice and soft buns, but the rendang filling was bland and lacked spiciness. Even dessert wasn't spared from disappointment. To finish off our meal, we had dragonfruit cheesecake, which was unevenly sour and lacked the richness of cream cheese. Probably better just to call it dragonfruit cake so customers won't have cheesecake expectations? I might consider coming back here for drinks as they have an extensive bar list.
