Wood Fired Pizzas and More at Stella

by - Thursday, August 03, 2017

It has been a long day for us. We came from a food crawl at MOA area before we headed to BGC for our fourth stop. So we were so full, and I didn't think that I had enough space in my belly for more Italian food (guess what, we also had Italian food at our food crawl). But just a glance of the dishes served by Stella changed that. I was born ready to eat, and for that I am grateful, because I got to taste the delicious food this restaurant has to offer.

Margherita Pizza

Stella Margherita Pizza, Straight Up Pepperoni Pizza, pitcher of iced tea/ soda/ beer for P749

This is without a doubt a great deal. 2 great, non-mediocre wood-fired pizzas, plus pitcher of drinks for just P749.

Roasted Seafood "Firecracker" Fusilli
The name "firecraker" is more applicable to describe the burst of flavors this pasta has rather than its supposed spiciness. The rich tomato sauce balanced with a splash lemon, play of herbs, and generous use of seafood are more than good enough reasons to fall in love with this pasta. The spicy olive and smokey sundried tomato cream, dried chillies, fire roasted seafood, fresh herbs, malagos ricotta

Wood Fired Garlic Mushroom Cream Fettuccine

Wood Fired Garlic Mushroom Cream Fettuccine

Onion, garlic, fresh lemon, fettuccine. You're probably thinking that I already have a favorite pasta out of the two we tried. When you thought you've already had a taste of the best pasta, this creamy, truffle-infused fettuccine pasta mixed things up. Its smooth sauce just perfectly coated the pasta, and adding a little lemon to it just removes any "umay" factor from its heavy, creamy taste. Yum!

The pastas were both on the top of their games, just on a different field - tomato base, and cream base. I honestly can't choose which side I am on, but suffice to say that both were worthy. 

Warm Chocolate Raspberry Cake P295
Fish Sauce Crumble, Hazelnut Mousse, Raspberry Cupcake, Coconut Tuile. I love Stella's creativity with their use of unusual ingredients in this dessert. It has both the sweet and salty elements, and the soft and crunchy textures other desserts fail to achieve, which is just awesome. 

Stella's signature cakes P295

Salted Caramel
Red Velvet
The red velvet and salted caramel cakes were both moist and delicious, but I'd say that the latter appealed to me more because of the salted caramel crystals itself. I love those. That's just it. The red velvet was also great since the cream cheese frosting had the creaminess and cheesiness that I wanted.

Wood-fired Cookie Dough P195
Salted caramel, mantecado ice cream, rosemary pistachios. 

Stella's menu offers a wide array of dishes, many of which are items I am curious to try. I'd be back for them!
