Roots Market Bistro

Early last month, Mom, Brother and I found ourselves in Promenade, Greenhills during lunchtime.  Tired of the usual favorites, my Brother suggested that we try out the newly opened Roots Market Bistro.  No one objected, so Roots it is!  Besides, who'd say no to try out a new restaurant, right?  Anyway, the three of us weren't really hungry, so we agreed to just order something light and share it among ourselves.  This is what we had:

Salad Rian

Grilled prawns, orange segments, feta cheese, mesclun, cranberry vinaigrette

Sponach and Mushroom Omelette

Baby spinach, mushrooms and gruyere served with house salad and pain de mie
Cream of Cauliflower

Baguio fresh cauliflower, spring onions, slivered almonds, croutons

Tomato and Corn Soup

Served with parmesan tuile and wanton crisp

Pumpkin Soup

Jalapeno crema

More than double (pork) chop

Potatoes, mustard green, tomatoes

I'll keep this short and simple.  The only dish worth remembering was the "more than double (pork) chop".  That's it.  Everything else was forgettable and underwhelming.  The pork chop, on the other hand, was brined perfectly, tender and oh so juicy.  So yes, that might be the only thing I would go back for.  2 out of 5 stars.

Roots Market Bistro is at G/F, Promenade II, Annapolis St. cor. Missouri St., Greenhills Shopping Center, San Juan
