Lunching at Felix was absolutely a treat. The spicy tuna garden salad was amazing – the tones of wasabi, light mayo and sesame on soft tuna chunks were nicely balanced out by the crispy tempura flakes. The salad had a generous amount of watermelon, grape, pineapple and pomelo tossed in a sesame dressing.
For me, I find that the food in Manila tends to be heavier on the flavours – things are saltier, sweeter and more sour than I’d personally prefer. But this dish was perfect and it was exactly what I needed – something refreshing, light flavours with a clean aftertaste.
Manila is trying to woo me to their camp. I can’t deny that it’s somewhat working.
