Serving Comfort Food Everyday at Apartment 1B

I first tried Apartment 1B almost four years ago, and it's been on my go to list ever since. Serving its own brand of comfort food, Apartment 1B is definitely one place you'll keep going back to. And with a menu that has remained practically the same is a good sign.


Tucked in the middle of the Makati CBD, the place gives you sense of sanctuary, a place to shut out the hustle and bustle of the city.




The interiors are cozy, even homey, just like the food they serve. Simple, yet refined.


The small kitchen is almost visible from the ground floor dining area, while the stairs on the right lead to the much larger second floor dining area.


Start of with the Corn Chowder (P 190) topped with parsley and freshly ground pepper. This is a half serving since we had one order split to two servings.


The Roasted Half Chicken (P 550), with garlic mashed potatoes, vegetables and gravy.


Roasted with fresh herbs, garlic and lemon, the skin is crisp, and the meat tender and juicy, while the mashed potatoes are rich and creamy. And the vegetables are perfect, still retaining some of the crunch, with real butter...awesome.


The Grilled Pork Chops (P 510), with garlic mashed potatoes, vegetables and homemade applesauce...


The chops are tender and juicy, with the applesauce providing a nice contrast. And both items remain as delicious as when I first tried it some years back...consistency, that's why I love this place.


You just have to leave room for dessert. The White Toblerone Cheesecake with berry coulis (P 220), a great way to cap a great meal at Apartment 1B. Apartment 1B also has some of the best breakfasts, and more on this in a later post.


Every time I walk into Apartment 1B, it always feels like coming home. And it's good to be back home again.

Apartment 1B is located at One Lafayette Square, Ground Floor, Unit 1-B, 132 L. P. Leviste corner Sedeno Streets, Salcedo Village, Makati City or call 843-4075 for inquiries.

  2. Apartment 1B… that's a really interesting name. The food looks great, too - I think my choice would be the roasted half chicken as a main course, and for dessert, I wouldn't pass up on that toblerone cheesecake!
