Last week, I was invited by the team of GMA News TV's newest travel show called Lakwatseros for an intimate dinner together with other travel bloggers. Led by one of the show's hosts, we were hosted by FAT Restaurant at Forbes Town Center in Bonifacio Global City for a night of sumptuous dishes.
FAT RestaurantStill on its soft opening, FAT Restaurant is located in Forbes Town Center along Burgos Circle in Bonifacio Global City. The restaurant just opened last month but it has already been creating a buzz among Metro Manila's foodies. Featuring an array of dishes in fatty yet flavorful rendition, FAT Restaurant proves that fats are indeed a flavor that is worthy to tickle your most discriminate taste bud.
Hmmmm...? Quite interesting! Let's see...
Specially crafted and prepared by Chef Kel Zaguirre, here are the dishes we got to try.
FAT PoutineThis is made from potato frites with roasted bone marrow, mushroom ragout sauce, house-made double smoked bacon, kesong puti and topped with bone marrow gravy. You should eat it with the bone marrow to let the flavors come out. Yummy!
Pork's Ear En CrouteThis is an appetizer made from grilled pork's ear on top of sourdough bread mixed with herb oil, pico de gallo and arungula leaves. That alone really tastes good! But you could also dip it in mango mayo or saffron aioli dips for added flavors. I really love this one!
Korean Beef StewFAT Restaurant's version of the classic Korean Beef Stew is made of boneless short ribs that is so tender and topped with seared foie gras. It is best paired with kimchi rice and a 64 degree egg cooked to perfection. This is my favorite among all the dishes they served us!
PorchettaA delightful ensemble of a flavorful roasted pork belly that is perfectly crispy outside and very tender inside. It is served on the side with bacon jam, whipped potatoes, spinach, mustard sauce and mushroom ragout sauce. This one is almost everyone's favorite. A must-try when dining at FAT Restaurant.
Bacon BaklavaEnding our dinner is a mouthwatering sweet pastry desert made of crisp phyllo pastry filled with pistachio, almonds and maple glazed bacon. It is then served with brown butter ice cream which adds flavor to the baklava. It's the first time I've tasted this dessert, and I loved it!
Here are the other mouthwatering dishes on their menu.
It was a fun-filled night over great-tasting food while we chat about what to expect at Lakwatseros' new season on GMA News TV.
