I asked the server their bestseller and he pointed the Buttermilk Fried Chicken. I was kind of hesitant to order it at first since it seems too expensive for a two piece chicken but the server assured us that it was good. The chicken was supposed to be served with cornbread but they ran out so we had the sweet potato fries as substitute. The fried chicken has an incredibly crunchy breading and the meat inside was super moist and tender. How I wish they added more seasoning and spices on the breading and this would have blown me away, a cajun spice mix would have been perfect. I got to try the cornbread on a separate occasion and it was really good. It was super moist and it just had the right amount of sweetness.

We also ordered the U.S. Angus Short Ribs that was braised in cervesa negra and chipotle barbecue sauce, served with garlic mashed potoatoes and coleslaw. What I like about this dish was the beef was so tender, we didn't even need a knife to cut it. The sauce was on the sweet side and I barely tasted the smoky flavor of chipotle. Overall, the dish was pretty good, the flavors on this dish made up for the bland pasta we had.

On paper the Truffle Gorgonzola looks so promising, spaghetti, truffle cream, fried basil and parmesan. I was looking forward to having this but I got so disappointed when I tasted it. It didn't smell of truffle and it didn't taste of Gorgonzola, it was terribly bland.

I asked for salt and the server proudly presented us with a pink himalyan salt, it still wasn't enough to save the dish.

If asked if the resto is worth a 2nd visit, I'd say yes. Simple and excellent food quality. Walk around the east wing and you'd know that this is one of the favorite restos inside the mall.
