Eyeball Menu

by Marketman

Several folks have asked what will be on the menu for the Saturday Night Eyeball. Here is the preliminary menu. Some last minute changes are possible if sourcing is a problem, it will be at the Chef’s discretion…


Portabella mushroom with truffle oil
Eggplant and basil with balsamic vinegar
Asparagus and soft boiled quail egg in brown butter vinaigrette
Stuffed squash blossoms

Pizza (made in their pugon/pizza oven):

Pizza Neapolitan Pizza
Pizza Margherita


Pugon Roasted Porkloin with ricotta, thyme and sundried tomatoes


Dried pasta – Penne with italian fennel sausage
Fresh pasta – fettuccine with mushrooms and garlic


Mixed greens with prosciutto crudo, melons, and lemon mustard vinaigrette


Iced Tea/Soda

Cash bar for any other drinks. Depending on what is at the market tomorrow a.m., and if I am inspired, I may add a dish or two…

Not too shabby for PHP550, if you ask me…

Plus the mother of all dessert buffet tables if you guys all bring something with you! Please remember to bring the source and contact details so we can build a spectacular Holiday take-away list for Marketmanila readers!

See you guys at 6:30p.m. Saturday evening!!!

    aridelros, actually, at the eyeball last year, the 30 participants could have all kept going for hours without me in the room. If the right type of folks show up, they will have enough to talk about if they only stick to food as a topic of conversation. Last year, there were few awkward moments and a more lively, intelligent, varied, erudite group of people would be hard to put together even if planned carefully… And no, there are no speeches planned.

    Mmmmm…menu sounds good! I’m sure the dessert table will be fantastic. Please, please post lots of pictures. I hope that the next time you organize an EB, I will be in town to attend it. In the meantime, I will have to do it vicariously through my sisters who are going. Lucky girls!

    Have fun and fabulous time breaking bread with MM and his wife at the Eyeball for all you attending. The dessert buffet table must be out of this world that surely will take my breath away! Great way to end a spectacular and exciting night of fun and lively conversation with a good selection of dessert.

    Whatever you guys feel like bringing for dessert is fine…I usually have fruit for dessert Nikka, so that’s perfectly fine…I think we will all overdose on calories tonight…
