The Makati Food Tour 2014: One Day, Three Restaurants

Three distinct culinary styles, all in one day, within the bustling Makati Commercial and Business District. 


In one day, the unique dining concepts of Raintree Restaurants were showcased as part of The Makati Food Tour 2014, featuring Museum Cafe, Terraz Bistro & Meetings, and Simple Lang. My tour begins at Museum Cafe, or simply M Cafe, for a hearty and comforting breakfast. Specializing in modern Asian cuisine, M Cafe offers congee, noodles and dim sum as well as pancakes and waffles to start the day right. I go for M Cafe's M Benedict, delicately poached eggs draped in rich Hollandaise sauce on arugula and Jamon Excellente (for more on M Cafe, see my post on my other blog at http://dude4food.blogspot.com/2014/09/the-makati-food-tour-2014-part-1.html). A good start and you're just about ready for lunch...


Terraz Bistro & Meetings, located at the third floor of the newest addition to the growing Makati skyline, the Zuellig Building, spins its own inventive take on modern comfort cuisine. Start with the fresh and clean flavors of the Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna on a mesclun of crisp vegetables. Other notable dishes include the Spicy Terraz Corned Beef Adobo and the Merlot Braised Veal Cheeks (for more on Terraz Bistro & Meetings, check  out my post on my other blog here at http://dude4food.blogspot.com/2014/09/the-makati-food-tour-2014-part-2.html). 


The tour ends with dinner at Simple Lang, with its playful spin on traditional Filipino flavors, like the Sinigang na Bagnet with Watermelon, a sour tamarind broth sweetened with watermelon for balance, completed with the signature crispy pork belly bagnet. Good food, simplified (for more on Simple Lang's innovative dishes, check out my previous post on my other blog here at http://dude4food.blogspot.com/2014/09/the-makati-food-tour-2014-part-3-good.html).

One day, three restaurants...just can't get better than that.
