San Diann, Clara and I met up at Element Fusion Restaurant for dinner at Element Fusion Restaurant last Friday evening. We contemplated between multiple new eateries before settling with Element Fusion Restaurant. We had considered Bento Brothers and Balkony Cafe.
Element Fusion Restaurant is located where FunShabu-Shi Restaurant used to be. According to one of the waitresses, the place was taken over by a new management. The place was dimly lighted to create a cozy and “Italian” feel. Both San Diann and Clara chose the brightest table around the corner. LOL!
Without further ado, let me show you what we had for dinner the other evening.
Latte | B$5.00
This was what San Diann ordered. When this was being served, we all thought the color of the coffee looked rather pale for a coffee. Presentation wise, I think the coffee should have been served in a smaller glass so that it doesn’t look “little” in terms of “quantity” aspect.
Orange & Carrot Juice | B$6.00
I requested for warm water but was being told that they only serve SPA mineral water hence I decided to go for juice among all beverages. Tasted good albeit being slightly raw in the first few sips but got better afterwards.
Penne Arabiatta | B$13.90
Tomato based penne with a vibrant and fresh lovely chili heat
This was what I ordered for myself when I thought chicken dishes sound too heavy for me. When this was being served, everyone thought that the portion was too little. But honestly speaking, this was just the right portion for me.
The penne was cooked alright but slightly overcooked for my liking. The sauce was good though with a spicy kick. It gets pretty spicy but it makes you want for more.
Salmon Teriyaki | B$21.00
Fresh salmon fillet served with a choice of french fries or mashed potato and salad
San Diann’s choice of dinner. The mashed potato was the best one which I had tasted so far. The texture was extremely smooth. I think it was made with cream and cheese as it tasted rather alike carbonara sauce.
Chicken Katsu | B$19.90
Deep fried chicken served with tonkatsu sauce with a choice of french fries or mashed potato and salad
Goodness! The chicken cutlets were humongous to the extent that the three of us can’t even finish them all. The chicken cutlets were breaded and deep fried. According to Clara, the batter was crunchy when served hot but eventually turn slightly hard and dry when they were cool.
Verdict: All in all, the three of us were extremely satisfied with our food as well as the customer service albeit the steep price. Thankfully, there was a 10% off our main courses. There were only two tables occupied including ours throughout the entire course of our dinner. Like I mentioned earlier, the place has a cozy ambiance which makes it an ideal place for birthday or anniversary dinner.
