We decided to take our taste buds for a spin by having a sumptuous lunch at Red Garlic. FYI, this bistro was first located at Blue Ridge in QC, but later moved to Bonifacio Global City. At first we couldn’t decide which restaurant to go to coz we were in BGC after all, and that place has a whole treasure trove of good restaurants and cafes.
(I was quietly waiting for the guy to leave so I can get a better shot, but he won’t budge… >_<)
I think their old location in Blue Ridge was more spacious…
Menu: Soups and salads (French garlic soup), Salad (Hanoi pomelo salad with crispy adobo flakes), Appetizer (Santiago chilli taco poppers), Sushi (Red Garlic signature roll, US baked scallops), Pork (Ilocos bagnet), Chicken & seafood (Batanes roulade), Beef & lamb (US Angus beef shortplate), Pasta, Pizza (Torre al Greco), Sandwiches & burgers (Red Garlic signature burger), Dessert, and Drinks.
Their Thai Milk Tea had a nice, almost creamy consistency.
Frosted Crunch Fried Chicken. The chicken was perfectly crispy, and like the name suggests, the skin did have a nice crunch to it. The meat could use a little bit more salt, but that’s where the flavorful peppercorn gravy comes in.
And finally, instead of ordering a bowl of rice, I had their Shrimp Popcorn Nigiri. Oh, man. I don’t even know how to describe this dish, except… This is probably one of the best sushi rolls I’ve tried. Ever. The big, fat, juicy, wasabi-coated shrimp is basically the cherry on top. And the rice that they used for this roll had a really sweet finish to it. It’s truly amazing.
Free dessert (for dad, at least): a thin slice of pound cake and coffee.
I had a great time here, thanks to the accommodating staff, and the delicious food. We did have to pay a hefty sum of money for this meal, but I have to say it’s definitely worth the price. Can’t wait to dine here again!!
