There are a couple of restaurants with snacks that outshine everything else (so yeah, it’s pretty much downhill from that point on) but it wasn’t the case at all at Buko Nero.
Yes, this snack had me gobsmacked with its tastiness in spite of the sheer simplicity of ingredients used: steamed egg white and fresh persimmon on crostini. But even then, the meal continued to rise in terms of pleasure and satisfaction as it progressed.
I’m very pleased with myself for choosing to dine alone tonight as it gave me the chance to focus fully on what I was eating every step of the way. And this is the kind of place that’s worth that level of attention.
