One day, three restaurants. Three unique dining experiences from Raintree Restaurants for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Just can't get better than that...
The Makati Food Tour 2014 showcases the best dining concepts from Raintree Restaurants, a full day of gastronomic adventures with diverse flavors and a variety of dishes prepared by Raintree Restaurants' culinary team. And there's no better way to start the Raintree Restaurants experience than with a hearty and comforting breakfast at Museum Cafe.
The panoramic glass walls surrounding Museum Cafe, or simply M Cafe, add a modern and contemporary vibe to the place, complimenting the bright and spacious interiors. It's just the perfect spot for breakfast, or any meal, in the heart of the Makati CBD.
A freshly brewed cup of coffee kicks off my Makati Food Tour at M Cafe, just one of the many types of 100% Arabica coffee variants available at M Cafe. Tea? Try some of M Cafe's fine tea selections from Twinings of London and TWG. Or why not M Cafe's Asian Bloody Mary, a refreshing and spicy number with Sriracha, wasabi, calamansi, chili and vodka to jumpstart your day. Whatever you choose, M Cafe has the right beverage for that perfect start.
M Cafe features an Omelette Station, with M Cafe's Chef Carl, and an assortment of fresh ingredients including peppers, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, and ham. Just tell Chef Carl how you want your omelette, and he'll whip it up in minutes.
A freshly prepared omelette with just about everything in it, topped by micro greens. Light and fluffy, and perfectly executed. The sound of a gentle sizzle at the M Cafe's Omelette Station is constant, as breakfast diners continue to arrive.
M Cafe's M Benedict (P 375), a delicately poached egg draped in Hollandaise sauce with arugula and cherry tomato on Jamon Excellente is then served, with a side of fresh mandarin oranges.
The fresh and premium ingredients combine for a medley of rich flavors and textures in every bite, with the creamy notes of the Hollandaise sauce and poached eggs perfectly balanced by the sharpness of the Jamon Excellente and the clean flavors of the arugula. Gently break the yolk and let it run and combine with the Hollandaise sauce for even richer flavors. A perfect start at M Cafe.
Craving for Asian flavors to start the day? Go for M Cafe's Anise Scented Beef Congee paired with Crystal Prawn Dumplings. And there's more. Like M Cafe's Hainan Chicken Noodles, Waffles and Pancakes topped with sweet mangoes, watermelon, and Granny Smith apples and served with maple syrup and peanut butter. Or you can try some of M Cafe's signature Filipino breakfast dishes, like US Beef Belly Garlic Tapa or Bangus Belly "Bistek Style".
Within M Cafe, one can find Kabila (which literally translates as "next door"), seamlessly blending in the spacious interiors without walls or borders. With M Cafe's modern Asian cuisine, one can find regional Filipino flavors at Kabila. And as the lunch service is prepped, one can see some of the signature specialties of Kabila, including this beauty, crispy pork belly bagnet. Lunch at Kabila? Definitely. Soon.
To complete your meal, M Cafe and Kabila offers a wide range of desserts, including this rich Tablea Cake made with local chocolate. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, M Cafe, and Kabila by Raintree Restaurants, are perfect spots for for that perfect meal. Any time of day.
