Let me just warn you — this post will make you salivate due to the flood of deliciously-looking and even more deliciously-tasting line up of food fare!
NACI is all about having the complete dining experience. From the refreshing, brightly-colored interiors, to the smooth servers down to the delectable dishes that’s truly a sight to behold — dining at NACI truly is a feast to delight in!
NACI means “rice” in Kapampangan but they did not limit their menu to Pampanga dishes alone, in fact they specialize in rice dishes but they have an impressive line up of menu!
NACI basically translates international cuisine and local comfort food to something that’s palatable fusion to your taste buds.
I’ve never been to their Greenhills branch where they stayed for more than a year before transferring to Bonifacio Global City but my friend said that this new interior design is much preferable for him.
The bright-hued chairs gave this place a happy vibe — perfect to capture the attention of the yuppies around Fort business district and the families or friends looking for a place to celebrate life’s achievements, whether big or small.
While waiting for our feast, I’ve noticed that they have Cohen-friendly menu. This is something first for restaurants to offer and as of right now, there are only a few who are doing this and one of the very few is NACI. *wink*
NOW… shall we start our visual feast?
Note: This is the only time I used *pigging out* again!
My top favorites: Classic Salpicao — high quality, super tender and flvorful beef and Beef Taco Springroll — the no-mess taco! *hmmm… so good!!!*
Choice of Four of Naci’s Best Selling Appetizers. Ours was Beef Taco Springroll, Cajun Mozzarella Balls, Classic Salpicao and Glazed Chicken Wings.
*Price-wise, getting the sampler proved to be much more reasonable than ordering each appetizer separately.
My top favorite: Kani Mango Crunch Salad. This is my salad of choice. Easy to eat plus I love the wasabi-mayo salad dressing!
This is the part where I had a hard time deciding which is my favorite… because I seem to be saying “that’s my favorite!” on all the rice dishes that’s being served. I have my top favorites, that’s for sure.. but “walang tulak kabigin” is how I can describe these selection.
Go, taste for yourself!
I didn’t get to taste this so this is my unfinished business at NACI! Another reason for going back!
Nadine shared how the late Chef Ed Quimson came up with this dish. She said she wanted a union of her comfort food — adobo and pasta. The result? This tasty and easy to eat adobo cannelloni pasta. Truly a comfort food, at its best!
Most restaurants tend to disregard their desserts menu.. but not NACI. I was amazed with their extensive selection of desserts and these are not all there is. In fact, they are still working on some new desserts that they will eventually add to the menu.
Good food + delicious desserts = NACI for the winning combo!
My top favorites are: Chocolate Ganache Cake, Pistachio Sansrival, Red Velvet Cupcake and Black and White Cupcake.
If you’re looking to have a delightful dining experience, go and try NACI Comfort Food! Highly recommended. *wink*
