Dining out continues to be a major activity in my routine. I can say that doing so is not merely just for my own entertainment, but I just find it relaxing and enjoyable at the same time to make reviews about food from different places, and sharing my thoughts and feelings about them through my writing. Just recently, I was so happy to dine out once again as I was invited to visit Flatiron in BGC, Taguig. Flatiron is actually a part of the 1771 Group of Restaurants, alongside Chateau 1771, Sentro 1771, and Cafe 1771.

I felt like I have gained a couple of pounds from this sponsored invite alone since I was served 10 kinds of food offering from Flatiron that day. I’d have to say that each slurp, bite, and chewing that I did was all worth it, given the extra calories I reaped in that restaurant visit.

The concept that the owners have for this restaurant is to prepare and serve dishes using their cast iron griddle. The pan is heavy duty and requires little maintenance. It can be used for a variety of cooking methods, including grilling, searing, and sauteing, among many others. The flat iron also keeps the dishes warm for long periods of time.

During the media launch, 1771 Group’s Chief Operating Officer and Executive Chef, Vicky Pacheco, said in her speech that using a griddle is the easiest way to cook food in a breeze. In fact, at Flatiron, the griddle is essential in preparing their restaurant’s specialty, which is Flatiron’s Brisket 6. Those of us who got to try it out raved on how tender and flavorful the meat was. Apparently, it was slow cooked for a grueling six hours. No wonder why it was such a hit among us foodies. It showcased a good balance of veggies and carbs. Make sure to have this one if you visit Flatiron soon.

One of my favorites from Flatiron is their pomelo orzo salad. The orzo is actually a short-cut pasta that looks like a large grain of rice. It actually worked really well with the spinach, and the sweet, tangy, salty, and sour flavors of the pomelo, Parmesan cheese, and lemon vinaigrette dressing. This is truly a refreshing starter that will make you feel good once you get to try it.

Another thing that I love from them is their Japanese miso salmon glaze. This good chunk of salmon is actually sweet on the top, and it has this really nice texture to it. I swear you can tell that I am so much into it that I could have eaten almost everyone else’s share of this dish served on our dining table.

We were also served the Flatiron steak. It has this balsamic cherry Worcestershire sauce in it and man, was it seasoned just right. The meat was also very tender, and I am pretty sure that when you get to try this one out, this will make it to your list of best steaks that you have ever eaten.

For dessert, we had a scoop of their coffee ice cream that was sandwiched between two chocolate fudge brownies with cream cheese, drizzled with mocha and toffee syrup, topped with brittle shards of cashew. The whole gastronomic experience at Flatiron was capped off with their Intense Brownie Burger. This can be enjoyed and shared with two to three more folks!

Their interior and staff were great. The place looks nice and the staff were attentive.

Their food, OVERPRICED.
House specialty Beef Brisket P850 - it was okay, salty, soft, gravy was good, veggies were sad, just cucumber, young corn, and carrots, really?. Not meant for sharing. And definitely does not taste/worth the price. (Not worth waiting for also).

Pork chop P475 - hmm. Matigas at medyo walang lasa. Boring.

Pizzaiola P395 - hmm. The pasta was definitely for sharing, and the bowtie were cute, but it lacks creamy cheese sauce on the inside, it was a sad plain pasta. Imagine eating the pasta without any sauce? Luh.

Carbonara P330 - this is gooood. Very creamy and well, it was the only food that we liked.

Coffee Pie P220 for a slice was great!

Plain rice P60 - okay naman. Haha

Serving time took almost 30mins. 128566

Take note that they have a corkage fee of P500.

Their pizzaiola dish is such a winner. It took a while before my orders got serve but it was worth the wait. I really love this dish because it is like you are eating a slice of pizza but you are not. Amazing!

I also love love love the coffee pie dessert that is such a winner. It was super addictive and I wanted to go for round 2

Flat Iron is not a newbie. They are one of the first establishments that set up shop at Uptown Mall. I've heard rave reviews about the brisket during the first few weeks of operation.

Oddly enough, i wasn't intrigued. My lack of interest can be attributed to their location. Uptown is accessible alright but there are limited establishments in the area.

Fast forward to today, well.... some of the retail stores opened and i have a reason to swing by.

The visit was with my homies. This was right after we had dinner at Kushikatsu Daruma.

Coffee Pie (Php 220). Chateu 1771 signature dessert. The aforementioned statement sounds significant to others but not to me. I have dine at Chateu but ive never tried the Coffee Pie.

Chocolate cashew crust x coffee filling x cream topping and toffee sauce. Sounds boring eh? I beg to differ! This has got to be the best tasting pastries I've had in a while. The coffee flavor is just right, it serves as a catalyst and makes the dessert less sweet hence no "umay factor"

Rose Noire (Php 250). Layered dark chocolate ganache, meringue and hazelnut praline topped with chocolate glaze. I ain't a chocolate person but I'd gladly eat this for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Usage of dark chocolate is brilliant as it keeps the sweetness at bay. And oh, it is really pretty.

Peace Out!

The Flatiron brisket came out cold. We had to ask for it to be reheated and by then, they did so via the microwave.

Went to Flatiron just for desserts. Coffee Pie and Rose Noire were good!128523 The Coffee Pie had chocolate-cashew crust, cream topping, toffee sauce, and coffee filling of course. The Rose Noire was a layered chocolate ganache so it was smooth and thick. I liked them both. 128077

Since I am on a diet, I can only eat vegetables for Day 3 of GM Diet.

I was strict on my first two days, but on the third day, decided to go for an Eggless Caesar Salad.

I paid 273PHP for a solo serving of the Eggless Caesar Salad, the dressing was good but very minimal. Parm shavings were nice, but can't get over the tough and processed bacon bits.

For 273PHP, I was at least expecting real bacon. Freshly cooked bacon. Oh well.

Should have headed to Italianni's on the second floor.

Flatiron hasn't failed me yet! I've eaten here several times and the quality of the food and the service has been consistently above par.

I was with my family for dinner and we had the Pizzaiola Pasta, the Baked Salmon, the Flatiron Brisket 6, the Chicken Piccata, the Corned Beef Skillet, and for dessert, the Brownie Burger!

All the dishes were delicious! The presentation of each dish was pleasing to the eye. The quality of the ingredients was obviously high.

For what ordinarily would be a plain dish, the pasta was put together well with just the right amount of sauce, bowtie pasta, bacon and cheese that made it a tasty and worthy dish. The portions were ample too.

The Chicken Piccata was also ample. The thin fillets of chicken looked thin and plain but actually packed a punch in taste. This has to be one of my favorite dishes here.

The corned beef skillet was also tasty and well complemented by the perfectly cooked sunny-side up eggs and dense potato bread rolls.

Among all the dishes we ordered, the baked salmon was probably the least interesting dish we ordered, which is not at all to say that it wasn't good.

The specialty of the house, the brisket, was tender and tasty with just the right amount of sauce. The red and brown rice was a good complement to the meat.

And last but certainly not the least, the brownie burger! I must say it was the best way to cap the superb meal! Thick and ample melt-in-your-mouth chocolate fudge brownies sandwiching two scoops of mocha ice cream, combined with toffee, cheese, and chocolate sauce and cashew nuts. This dessert dish is to-die-for! One MUST never fail to order this when dining in Flatiron! 128522

All in all a most satisfying dining experience in Flatiron! Certainly a five-starrer!!!

After reading the review, hubby and I decided to try their italian cuisine and it was a success! 128076

Carbonara pasta was great. Texture of pasta was good and the cheese really tastes good. While their Salbacho - Salami Bacon Chorizo thin crust was a hit!

You should try these 2 dishes

Was excited to try Flat Iron, but it punned out instead 128514 Mark O and I ordered their House Special Brisket 6 and the beef was tough and dry - just as if it was ironed out hehe. It was an ok dish, but definitely not worth 800php. Maybe half the price would have been forgivable. We also had their garlic and rosemary fries - which tasted good.

3 stars for their staff and interior. I love their powder room btw hehe

Every single dish (pictured) we ordered was excellent in presentation and taste. The service was also exceptional. It was as if each and every staff was on the lookout for diners that may be in need of something. Far cry from the usual waiters that avoid eye contact in order not to be called.

Don't miss the Brownie Burger. Despite the name, it's a dessert, not an entree. It's good for 4 people, maybe more, depending on the appetite.

This restaurant is definitely a five-starrer! A must try!

After Papermoon Cafe, Denise A and I went here to have another sweet treat. As we entered the restaurant, we were greeted with a warm smile from the one of the servers. We were given an option where to sit, and we chose the couch.

I immediately ask for their menu, and asked for their best seller. Yup, it's the Rose Noire. I ordered this and a cup of cappuccino. Denise on the other hand said she was still full, and we're just gonna share the cake. While waiting for our orders, her bf called. She had to go. Our orders arrived soon after. The Rose Noire was delicious. I loved its texture. It's not too sweet. The cappuccino was okay. Enough for my daily caffeine fix.

It's just so weird that I ordered these all with a companion, and I was all here eating alone - with 2 sets of fork and knife, two plates, and two glasses of water. Reality bit me and sudden rush of realization came after. I'm single.

P.S. They also have Coffee Pie, which is interesting as this is Chateau 1771's signature dessert as per the menu.

How can you not miss their resto haha basically the whole mall is flooded with their posters and signages haha soooo Why not give it a try!

Me and my cousin headed here for merienda. We had their Rosemary Fries, Pizzaoila Pasta and Coffee Pie.

I am a big fan of their Pasta! It is just genius !!!! I seriously felt like I was eating a slice of Pepperoni Pizza but Nooooo.... You are eating pasta! That's exactly how I would describe the taste! Ugh! So darn goood! The serving is huge! 3-4 people can share this dish! Woah was not expecting that. Perfect name for this dish!!!! Hahaha

Coffee Pie. Oh my. Goodbye Diet. I super super love love love this dessert! I would come back just to eat that pasta and this dessert! Yummm tasted like Salted Caramel with a crunch and a kick of coffee. Heaven in a bite! It also melts in your mouth!

Service is pretty fast too and orders came in quick. Please have more branches !!

Well, the poster of their flatiron brisket looked really appetizing so we dropped by after the movie for a late lunch after the movie, still partly full from the popcorn.
Ok so J ordered mushroom soup P200
And mushroom burger P460+!
L and I decided to share the house specialty which was the flatiron brisket supposed to be good for two ( we asked ) P850 !
My first thought - oh pricey ha

After my first bite - hmm pricey talaga
What they served looked quite different from the picture , the meat was dark as if already re-re- reheated .
The gravy was too salty . Really.
The meat was tender but long stranded , not cut across the grain, but that may be the way a flatiron cut really is, i am not sure.
The meat wasn't smoking but it was quite hot inside , right, spent a few minutes in the microwave , i thought . The heat that could burn your tongue , but the surface was just warm . That kind of microwaved revelation when you put it in your mouth . Oh! Init ! Microwaved !
Well you would expect a freshly cooked well seasoned meat at P850 .
The veggies were 3 lonely pieces of baby corn and 4 small slices of cucumber.
The rice , brown, not bad .
I thought " hey , this is the same beef as their sinigang corned beef, which they baked instead of boiled in sinigang broth. Why did I think that ? Because there was not much flavor in the meat itself just like the sinigang corned beef which masks the blandness of the meat with extra sour sinigang broth of sentro 1771 which I think is a sister restaurant . Well sadly their signature Flatiron brisket dish was just 127775127775 for us .

The mushroom soup 127775127775127775127775
The mushroom burger , this quickly broke into pieces and was also underseasoned and was really pricey . The mushroom burger at Starbuck's 127828 beat this hands down , so
127775127775 for the mushroom burger .
But i liked the fries 128077127839that came with the burger .
The mushroom soup was good 127775127775127775127775

The service was good ! 10024100241002410024
The ambiance was great ! 1002410024100241002410024
Unfortunately , just those two, do not, a good restaurant make .

We didn't enjoy the main meal enough to warrant trying their desserts which were also pricey at P250 127856127854 per slice of cake .

This is the kind of restaurant you go to, to deliver bad news, where the people will have no appetite to eat, so the quality of the food wont matter . And its pricey so the receiver of bad news will feel, at least pinakain ako ng mahal na meal, sayang hindi ko masyado nalasahan , kahit iba yung napromote, or nabasted ako or nawalan ako ng trabaho , you get the idea, pa consuelo . 128122

We should've scampered across to Tim Ho Wan insted. Oh well , lesson learned .

Finally got to try this one out!

After a very stressful morning, I dedided to treat myself to a nice lunch.

I ordered the Chicken Piccata. It was a little too tangy for me but I liked the chicken. The serving of the pasta wasn't big but the chicken breast were three HUGE pieces! (I was only able to finish one piece then half of the pasta)

We also got the Pizzaiola Pasta which was good! I loved it although I think I would need to share it with someone. (Ka-date ganyan.)

The salmon burger wasn't good for me. It did not taste like salmon at all. I liked the baked salmon better. It tasted fresh and really good.

For dessert, we ordered the Coffee Pie and Rose Noire. The coffee pie was OK. The Rose Noire, was heaven. The Valrhona dark chocolate and the crunchy crust was so good! I could probably finish two servings! Hahaha. 128525

Overall, it was OK. The dessert was probably the savior.
Planning to visit again and try their house specialty! 128522

Tara?

Checking the newly open restaurant Flatiron by 1771 at Uptown Place Mall in BGC. I tried the RV Dip for Php180.00. RV stands for Roasted Vegetable according to the server, it is a combination of grilled pepper, toasted onion, tomato and eggplant with extra virgin olive oil whipped together into a sumptuous dip served with focaccia crisps. 127813127814127825127838

RV Dip - 11088110881108811088️ 4/5

Flatiron by 1771 is located at the Ground Floor of Uptown Mall, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
