I was really thirsty before going home last time so I had to go to Borough. Of course I ordered their Chips and Dips and a bottle of beer. Perfect combination for me. 128541 I told myself that I won't be eating too much but I found myself ordering a Margherita pizza as well. Hmmmm, good for one. 128514 The strong taste of the tomatoes was evident. I also liked the smell of the basil leaves. Pizza is pizza so I loved it. But no, I wasn't able to finish one order (4 slices). PG, eh?

P.S. You can actually rent the 2nd floor of Borough for private parties and gatherings. I remember I inquired before but I already forgot the rates. 128540

Do you fancy a Heavy Breakky? Lunch plans? Afternoon grumble? Dinner date? Or Post-Party recovery? Well, Borough is always open to satisfy your cravings at any time of the day. Serving you New Yorker Appetite Realness. Located at the very unnoticeable part of Podium, I say... Do not judge a food bar by its entrance. And uhm, bring cash, it can get pricey in there.

Loud, unkempt and haphazardly furnished, this place has turned a full 180 from its past glory. Everything on the menu is the same but the quality has diminished. What was once a nice watering hole for yuppies after a long day's work has now transformed into another run of the mill bar where people talk obnoxiously and gulp down San Mig Lights. And I may have overlooked it, but do they serve their fabled grilled cheese sandwich anymore?

I know that this is go to place when you want to just hangout and drink with friends, but i always end up ordering mom's milk and cookies from the menu. It is really good, might think it is quite pricey, but the cookies are perfect. The waiter usually advise the cookies available for the day, i had white chocolate chip, oatmeal and raisin and apple cinnamon. The milk is quite sweet, and served on a bucket of ice.

Milk and cookies!!! Cold milk with 3 flavors of freshly baked cookies: white chocolate chip, peanut butter, and ginger. I loved how it was really cold milk and fresh cookies! Best way to enjoy both of them together. I didn't really like the ginger flavored one before, but dunking it in the milk first before munching made it all better. 128522

Wished they had more milk, but also wished I wasn't so lactose intolerant. Huehue

It's kinda weird that this will be my first review of Borough as I've been here for a hundred times already. Yes, some exaggeration there. 128514128584

Borough is open 24/7 that's why this has become my sanctuary if I need to drink after work outside BGC. I always partner my beer with their Chips and Dip. It is their own potato chips with sour cream and onion dip. This is good for two.

I also like their Brooklyn Omelette. Very delicious! It has lots of cream cheese and is filled with herbs. Trust me, I can consume 2 orders being a fan of omelette. 128517

P.S. They serve cookies with milk. You can actually ask them to give you shot glasses, you know for milk shots with friends instead of tequila shots. Geez, so corny of me. But I have tried this already. Yeeeeha. 128541

My sister absolutely loves their Serendipity 3 and those times I went with her made me love the drink too. It's described as an alcoholic Frozen Hot Chocolate on their menu. It consists of vodka, chocnut, chocolate syrup and cocoa. A bit disappointed at how it looked last week because it didn't have that mountain of ice on top. I even showed an old picture to the servers and they just said it was over blended. They didn't offer to redo it so we just asked them to inform the bartender. Tastewise it was still spot on. The vodka was really there but not overpowering.

There was a DJ that night and they dimmed the lights when he started playing. Great music too.

The Chef Recommended Asian Tuna Burger (P460) was very filling! It has a soft but chewy tuna patty that's very easy to eat. I was drawn to the interesting garnish of soy-ginger spinach, portobello (not sure!) mushroom and wasabi mayo. It's a bit salty for my taste, but I still like this burger! 128077

Night cap with the beau, we insisted on meeting up no matter how late cause feelings yo!

Got "The Bagel" Php425, filling but lacks salmon, the eggs were a creamy delight but the buns were hard. The establishment seems to be complacent for they have a steady market of night owls who don't mind paying extra for averagely delicious food and phenomenal milk and cookie dessert.

First thing I appreciated was the vintage interiors and cozy ambiance. The best place to wine and dine and listen to good music. We ordered some fries, beers, and their grilled cheese and tomato soup are really delicious!

Cons: The service is a bit slow.

But will still consider going back, I heard their cookies and milk are good.

I've read so many people rave about the tomato soup here but I don't quite understand what was so special about it. Maybe it's an acquired taste. Or my tastebuds aren't sophisticated enough to appreciate it. I dunno.

Everything we ordered lacked in flavor, except maybe for the cookies which tasted tooooo sweet! Bleh!

The only thing I liked was the milk.

Three stars because they're open 24h, and service wasn't awful. At least not on a slow night like this one. But if I were to rate solely on the basis of the food, it's two stars.

Sorry.

I was going on a meeting with a client and the VP of our company, hence I was looking for a nice and cozy restaurant where we could wine and dine while we discuss business.
When I get to the place, first thing I noticed is the interiors, they were really nice and it had a cozy vibe to it. Great, I thought. 
So I ordered their house blend iced tea.
 The I ordered their Steak & Eggs- medium rare steak and runny sunny side up eggs.
After 30 minutes, my order arrives...
First thing I noticed- the steak was so small! For 590PHP I was expeting a bit more. Half of the plate was filled with tasteless fritters and to top it all off, my steak was medium well! Disgusting. I did not even finish my food, nor did anyone else's for that matter.
What a fucking waste of my time and good money. I will never come back to this restaurant, nor will I recommend it to any of my friends.
You will not get you money's worth at this place.

I've always liked Borough! This time I went for lunch at the time I was too stressed from work. I had their chicken and waffles! It was delicious!!!! The sweet flavor of the waffle syrup and the saltiness of the chicken blended really well! I also had white wine with it just because I needed alcohol in my system
at that time lol! They didn't have much wine selection though.
