Pizza and Paella at Buenisimo

Romantic date on a weeknight? Why not!

Le complimentary starter
Truffle Scented Wild Mushroom Soup (P228)
white truffle oil, truffle paste, wild mushrooms, creme
Sopa Ysabel (P178)
mixed seafood, saffron, nori shreds
To be honest, their soups are just okay. We had very high expectations of Buenisimo but these were just very plain. There were no other customers there at the time so there's really no excuse for how they turned out. The Sopa Ysabel tasted more like bland squash soup; the only flavor that stood out was the nori's. The mushroom soup was nothing special, too. It felt like a waste of truffle oil.

Buenisimo's Truffle Pizza (P518)
white sauce, organic mozzarella, truffle bits, white truffle oil 
Any bad feelings I had about their soups dissipated when I tried their truffle pizza. It was glorious. This was the only dish I liked that night. Bottomline: their truffle pizza is superb and a definite must-order!
Paella (P648)
saffron, mixed seafood, rice, chirozi, chicken, vegetables
Skipping through this because I honestly don't remember it very much. If it's not memorable, it probably wasn't that good. Sorry :(

Buenisimo Molted Chocolate Cake (P258)
chili, saffron, dark chocolate cake, truffle center, caramel sauce, vanilla ice cream
I wish they stuck to normal molten chocolate cake. The chili ruined it for me. On some parts, the flavor was really strong and it went against the chocolate in my opinion. The whole experience was a bust, but I'd totally dine here again, if only for the truffle pizza. What about you? What dishes did you like at Buenisimo? Any tips on what to order for next time? Let me know what you think!
Buenisimo is located at 24C Scout Tuason cor Scout Lozano Street, Quezon City.
