An Exclusive Peek at Olive Tree Kitchen & Bar's First Anniversary Tasting Menu

Olive Tree Kitchen & Bar celebrates its first year anniversary with a special Six-Course Tasting Menu, showcasing the innovative and rich flavors of Chef Rob Pengson and his team at OTKB. 

The new Anniversary Tasting Menu features delicately plated courses from starters to mains and a unique dessert creation using the finest and freshest ingredients for yet another memorable dining experience at OTKB (for more on OTKB, see my previous post here at

A sweet, tart, mildly spicy and refreshing Cacio e Pepe (R) is served as part of the Anniversary Tasting Menu, a unique cocktail with House Made Limoncello Liqueur, Pink Peppercorn Berries, and Pecorino Romano Shavings. Then, the first of six courses were served...

First Course: Panna Cotta, with Bufala Mozzarella Panna, Blue Crab Cake, Tomato Carpaccio, Purple Basil Flowers, and Calabrese Hash & Oil. The rich medley of flavors and textures play with each bite of the smooth mozzarella and crisp crab cakes, enhanced by the sharp and tart tomato carpaccio. And the parade of flavors continue with the next course...

Second Course: Uovo, with Sous-vide Organic Egg, Parmesan Polenta, Morel Spuma, Pan-Roasted Wild Mushrooms, and Pistachio Citrus. Simply break the egg and let the rich yolk blend with the other components of the dish for creamy flavors, complementing the nutty mushrooms and balanced by the light pistachio citrus notes.

Third Course: Agnolotti, with Octopus Tentacles, Chorizo and Potato Mousseline, Whipped Butter, and Red Cabbage Broth. The delicate and light pasta filled with sharp chorizo and creamy potato mousse is kicked up a notch by the rich notes of the whipped butter and red cabbage broth for balanced flavors. 

Fourth Course: Maialino allo Spiedo, with-Milk-Bathed Suckling Pig, Spiced Baby Carrots, Bitter Greens Gnudi, Raspberry Vinaigrette, and Pig's Head Au Jus. The perfectly roasted suckling pig is tender and juicy, with a thin layer of crackling for texture. Seriously good. 

Fifth Course: Bistecca, with Mulwarra Tenderloin, Foie Gras Shavings, Sweetbread Caponata, Mosto Cotto, and Zucchini Frites. Fork tender beef with a juicy pink center, pumped up by foie gras for big, bold flavors. Like all the courses of OTKB's First Anniversary Tasting Menu, each plate delivers so much flavors. 

Sixth Course: Olio d' Oliva, a unique dessert creation with Olive Oil Sponge draped in Lemon Liqueur Ganache, Pineapple Mousse and topped with Compressed Fennel and Orange. Not too sweet, and a perfect ending to another creative and elegant tasting menu from OTKB.

OTKB's First Anniversary Tasting Menu is priced at P 1,499 per person, and will be available from September 26 to 28, 2014. Reservations a day in advance is recommended.  Thinking of a special dinner? The First Anniversary Tasting Menu at Olive Tree Kitchen & Bar is spot on.
