Olives Restaurant at Thunderbird Resorts

I became an early riser in La Union because I cannot just flaunt my underclad glory and consequently subject myself to social disdain as I surface from the pool. No, I am not gifted with the build of Chris Hemsworth(Thor) despite my endless gym sessions, that is why I usually use the pool service when everybody else is still sleeping, as early as 7AM.

And after pool time, I usually have breakfast. As if I have a choice, there are only two resident restaurants in Thunderbird La Union, one is Vegas Cafe which opens on a regular business hour and the Olives Restaurant that serves breakfast as early as 6:30AM. So Olives Restaurant that is.

Olives Restaurant is known for its comfort food a la Mediterranean style. Although their menu is not as extensive as I expected, their flagship cuisine is rather the best in its class. I would say that their formidable specialty would be their pizza line as it is traditionally wood-fired, stone-oven done.

I just grab a 14" Thunderbird All-Meat Pizza(Php440 + 10% SC) made of tomato concise, mozzarella, beef, chicken, pork, mushroom and oregano, and an entree of Fettuccine with Seafood Alfredo Sauce(Php450 + 10%SC), and a Cranberry Juice(Php160 + 10%SC).

We used to have wood-fire oven before so I know how anything concocted in that fashion taste like, and I must say, the pizza tastes good enough. Although the pasta is oddly swimming on its sauce, it is sumptuous nonetheless.

I didn't try Vegas Cafe because the social crudeness in me is afraid to find jiggly-bottomed Vegas girls pole dancing while I wholeheartedly, wholesomely devour my food. What am I thinking!!!
