-Dasmariñas Village, Makati, Manila, Philippines-
with the Family
Lo and behold, our favorite Italian restaurant in the Philippines – the original location in BGC – just so happens to have a second branch in Makati, just outside the gates of our village. A bit icky that it’s in a strip mall attached to a gas station – I’m not entirely confident that the restaurant’s water supply is safe from petroleum contamination – but I’m willing to take the risk.
Fewer options on the menu, but a little bit of everything, more than enough.
Happy to report that the quality of food appears consistently top notch.
The bruschetta was excellent: well-balanced/contrasting flavors and textures in the salami and mushroom, pecorino and ricotta cheeses, with slices of crispy/soft toasted bread.
