I was invited by Camille for an eat up at Bodega Kitchen which is located at Valero St., Salcedo Village, Makati City. The small restaurant is at the ground floor of Two Central.

Bodega Kitchen is a modern Filipino restaurant owned by 8 friends headed by Orville Zosa. The restaurant offers more on traditional Pinoy cuisine with a twist that will cater to the Millennials.

THE FOOD

🦑Macho Nacho for Php390.00 - 11088110881108811088️4/5
"It's a good starter while we wait for the other reviewers to come. The meaty sauce complement with the crispy nachos."

🦑Sisig Fries for Php275.00 - 11088110881108811088️ 4/5
"The fries blend well with the sisig and it so tasty and addictive."

🦑Sinarabsab for Php280.00 - 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5
"It's an Ilocano dish with Grilled Liempo and Tortang Talong combined with Tomatoes and Bagoong. Best paired with steamed rice."

🦑Tea Smoked Pusit for Php525.00 - 11088110881108811088️ 4/5
"Bodega Kitchen's version of Inihaw na Pusit marinated with Green Tea. The best way to eat the squid is to pair with toyo-mansi and steamed rice."

🦑Greek Inasal Gyros for Php350.00 - 11088110881108811088️ 4/5
"Bodegas version of Chicken Inasal with Mediterranean twist. Served with pita and salad."

🦑Kimchi Kansi for Php395.00 - 110881108811088️ 3/5
"I'm confused with flavor. Maybe it would be better if we can taste a little kimchi flavor with the kansi."

🦑Kung Hei Fat Choi for Php150.00 - 11088110881108811088️ 4/5
"It's like a turon just replace the banana with tikoy. Served with ice cream."

Overall, the service went well. Though it's not perfect but they did good.

*The event was paid and sponsored by Bodega Kitchen.

A friend of mine invited a few foodie peeps to the newly-launched restaurant in Makati, Bodega Kitchen and Bar. The place is a bit hard to find especially if you're not familiar with Salcedo Village.

The Bodega team served us their bestsellers:
127839 Sisig Fries - Because it was the first dish to be served and we took time in taking pictures, the fries got a little cold. Despite this, I still liked its taste - not overwhelmingly salty. The sisig was a bit saucy but the nori on top gave it a good complement (crunch). It goes well with the fries but the whole dish made me ask for rice. Haha!
127814 Sinarabsab - This dish is a mix of local favorites - liempo, bagoong and grilled eggplants. I also liked how the grilled liempo was cooked, which made me looked for more rice haha.
🦑 Tea Smoked Pusit - According to the team, this was the hardest to cook which likely explains why it's the most expensive among the dishes served to us. The squid wasn't chewy and tastes better with soy sauce.
🌯 Greek Inasal Gyros - One of the most interesting concepts they came up with is this dish. I like how the Inasal was cooked and tasted. It had a slight hint of sourness on it which you can wash away with the salad and the pita/rice.
🌶 Kimchi Kansi - It's like our local sinigang but spicier because of the kimchi. Not a fan of spicy food but this dish is something I can tolerate.

For the drinks, I tried their Russian Gummy Rocket which I think was vodka with juice and gummy bears. Maybe they can look into adding descriptions for their cocktails so that it's easier for the customers to order.
They also served one dessert - Kung Hey Fat Choi which includes fried tikoy roll, vanilla ice cream topped with a sugary lines/net (not sure what it’s called). The dessert was surprisingly good though. Maybe they can cut down on the net on top as it doesn’t help that much on the taste. Might be a little better if there’s more caramel syrup, instead.

When it comes to the interiors of the place, it's so nice and plain. It's impressive how they can manage to change the ambiance of the place from a cozy one to a party-like place at night.

Was invited by Camille S for dinner here at BODEGA one Saturday. Although we were full from @FoodSociety's Poblacion foodcrawl, I was surprised that we still had space for more food and yay because if wala, I wouldn't be able to try the SISIG FRIES and KIMCHI KANSI (my favorites). 🤗

SISIG FRIES was wow! Despite being "cold" already after taking photossss, it was still crunchy/crispy. Liked the fries because it's not the store-bought type. Also, the sisig + wasabi mayo + nori combination was so gooooood!! 💯 Partida malamig na siya ah! What more kung mainit and fresh from the kitchen pa. I just think that they should give extra wasabi mayo on the side. 128518

KIMCHI KANSI. It's like a spicy sinigang version. Loved how the flavors worked together - spicy, sour, and kind of sweet. Sarap! 🤤

Bodega Kitchen and Bar is a new restobar offering Filipino dishes with the slight twist and influence from other cuisines.

This quaint restaurant has simple yet eye catching displays, with a wall of antique items put together by the owners, to bring its name "bodega" to life.

Although their food might seem dull at first, with the lack of extravagant, unnecessary plating decors, its bold taste says differently.

We started the night with the Bodega fries. Wedge cut potatoes topped with two kinds of sisig, wasabi sauce and nori strips. This was a real crowd favorite, with the distinct but subtle taste of wasabi complementing the potatoes so well, despite being cold (it's our fault for taking too much photos haha!) The flavorful sisig with a nice added crunch was also a plus.

|Greek Inasal Gyros P350 - The Greek, deconstructed inasal was also one of my favorites, although no one else's. The juicy chicken was well-infused with the inasal flavor, with a side of Tabbouleh salad, sauces, and a choice of pita bread or rice that are all meant to be consumed together.

|Sinarabsab P280 - Who knew that a classic Filipino ensalada would taste so unfamiliar, but in a delicious way? A bed of roasted eggplant with green mango and tomato ensalada on one side and bagoong on the other, topped with tender pieces of well seasoned grilled liempo drizzled with some white sauce.

|Kimchi kansi - MY ULTIMATE FAVORITE. Their kansi is full of flavor and added aromatics, with a thick soup and tender beef perfect for the cold season. The kimchi taste was also unnoticeable in terms of taste and smell, but was able to contribute in the acidity of the dish. I highly recommend this kimchi kansi. Solid!

|Tea Smoked Pusit P480 - Squid smoked in green tea and served with green mango salsa and lemon. We didn't know the name of this when we first tried it, but we were quick to conclude that we loved its smoky flavor, and perfectly cooked and tender meat.

|Kung Hei Fat Hoi P150 - Feel the blessings of the Chinese New Year with Bodega's dessert. It's a turon made with tikoy, drizzled with their langkaramel (langka + caramel) sauce, and served with scoops of vanilla ice cream.

DRINKS:
|Russian Gummy Rocket P220
|OG Mai Tai P220

Bodega Kitchen and Bar is a living proof that food doesn't have to be too complicated to be appreciated, and more importantly, to taste amazing. Their food reminded me why the classic dishes remain well embraced and loved by many despite all the changes and modernization in the culinary world.
