Minus 1 star for the food although flavorful, everything was a tad salty.

Desiderata means 'something that is needed or wanted'. I needed a breather, and we were in the area so i guess it was the universe's handiwork that we found the place. 128513128525

I have always wished for a place that has spot on interiors where you can just chill (really chill) have a drink and a good conversation. Well, i think i found it!128077🏼128074🏼 interiors were very nice. the place was quite spacious and the bar was well-stocked. it was a little busy when we got there because someone was celebrating a birthday, so we headed straight to the second floor of this loft-type restaurant.

As we settled in our table, the usual curious me noticed there were vinly records on the shelf and a Satchmi/Motorino player. Apparently, you can play vinyls there to your heart's content. So for the night, the XX was our soundtrack.

Desiderata's menu is pretty simple, just a few, selected items perfect to partake when you want to sit back and just get lost in the music and conversation with good old as well as new friends 128513

We ordered:
Cauliflower soup - well-executed soup, very rich and comforting at the same time 128077🏼 very spot on! 128513
Roasted bone marrow - this. This is epic. Two halves of a bone, roasted to perfection, seasoned just right and served with beautiful, foccacia bread. Every bite is just oh so sinfully brilliant. And sinful's kind of an understatement when there are only three of you sharing this marrow paradise. Not advisable for those who have, or are at risk of hypertension.
Wagyu steak - reasonably priced, this is some delicious piece of meat. As like what my friend said, it puts all the meat he tasted to shame. Hahaha brilliantly seasoned and cooked, its love at every bite.

Part of the Desiderata experience are the cocktails127864. They have a good list for you to choose from. Their cocktails are created by Tim Walters. It escapes me what drinks we ordered, i just remembered that they were really good128513128079🏼128525! Just the right buzz for a night filled with stories and feels.

Overall, id come back to this place again to get the needed downtime. Of course, no matter where you stay, when you're in the company of good friends, nothing can go wrong 10084️

Wednesday night with M at Desiderata. I forgot to take pictures :( Anyway, went here to relax and unwind after a very long day. We ordered beer, mid-winter margarita, and sidekick. For bar chow, we ordered pork buns (not in the menu but you can just tell the waiter) and the fried ox clouds (hummus, poached egg, and caviar). I remember before the soft opening, M and I got to join the food testing with the other partners (wasn't a flexitarian yet) so I had pork buns and MAAAAAN one of the best pork buns ever! It should be included in top 10 pork buns in the metro. I really love this place! It's perfect place to dine and chill out after work. I also notice some guests coming over before going to the nearby clubs. By the way, they have really good service here.128077

Mode of payment: Cash basis. I heard they will be accepting credit cards soon :)

This is our new favorite place in BGC. We went here to celebrate the bday of Mike's mom. For appetizer, we had the poached egg roll with caviar. Yummy!!! The serving size was good for 4 and a perfect bar chow. We also had Black Uni Pasta, Salmon Fillet with Japanese Mayo, and Ribeye steak with cheesy spinach and mashed potato. 5 stars for each plate! This place is also a good place for chill/ steady night out. They serve good cocktails! Really. My personal favorite is their mid-winter margarita and M likes the sidekick. They also serve
local and imported beers. No clubbing in this place, just good food and drinks.
