So here I am....another rare visit in BGC, and very much a newbie to Providore.... but this time I’m making this probably my shortest foodie review....12851810084128077🏻

I tried their Arroz Caldo and wow, I think this has to be one of the best ones in town!

I salivated when I smelled it in the air and while it was served on the table.....and when it landed my palate, mmmmm! Super hearty, tasty and cooked really well to be Comfort Food! Kinda wondering why I never saw this understated item in some of the reviews....Give it a chance and you’ll surely never regret it! 1008410084100841008410084

Was pleased by this little thing they call biscuits. Ham and cheese. The usual bland biscuits matches the saltiness of the ham and cheese. Actually filling at P65 each.
My favorite by far, is the Pb & j cookie! Really nice almost crumbly cookie that is kept intact by the pb &j. 128522

Providore is one of our topmost fancied retaurants. With its nice ambience and to top with delicious food, you can never go wrong. Their menu selection comes with varioous cuisines such as Italian, Flilipino and Anerican. They have a big serving of food and those food that we tried, so far were all good.

This place is perfect for reunions because they are offering menu for all ages. They even have different variety of bread and deserts.128536128536128536

So what we have tried here:

- Freshly baked dinner rolls topped with melted butter.128524

Chicken a la Kiev(295)
-Chicken brest stuffed with hebs plus with fries and dinner rolls(again)

Salmon Belly Guava Sinigang (350)

The chocolate cake was moist, not too crumbly. Tasted really like “freshly-baked”. My only issue is the absence of walnut. The icing was pretty good too.
The ensaymada is ok, but not amazing.
The banana tea cake I really like. The crisps not only add texture, there’s a sweetness that hits your buds on first bite.
The blueberry cheesecake pockets is ok too. A cooke and a cake, in one.

Providore is located at G/F SM Aura Premiere.

I was out looking for a good ramen but ended up trying out this place. Glad I did! Few reasons why you have to try this place: they have friendly staff, pretty good ambience, IG worthy place (sucker of anyplace that has natural light) fast serving time and surprisingly good food too!

Tried their bacon tocino - ( php 290 ) served with two eggs, fried rice and atchara.

Will try their pastries and coffee next time!

Delightfully surprised to find out that Providore is a home grown brand and part of the Raintree Restaurants which include Saboten, Chelsea Kitchen, Museum Cafe, Simple Lang, Stella Rocket Room, Terraz, Chotto Matte/ Izakaya Sensu and Chacha's

I simply love its open facade that is so welcoming to first time visitors like myself. The ambiance is casual but elegant. There is a homey feel to the restaurant brought about by the huge display of artisanal bread and chalkboard menu.

A huge display case of libations, condiments and home produce is at the center of the restaurant.

Yesterday was a study in foodgasmic adventure by Providore. We were told to order ala carte and select our personal choice from their menu.. It was a difficult task because everything looked good. But we were able to wade through our selections so that no two persons ordered the same dish . We all decided to share so that each one can taste all 10 dishes ordered.

PROVIDORE SALAD P350

Imagine creamy fresh avocado vs. crispy bacon,
the bold-sour-moldy-tangy-sharp-rich bleu cheese,the sweet and citrusy dried cranberries,the crunchy toasted walnuts,the bitter green arugula and the crunchy fresh greens,all rounded up together by the buttermilk ranch dressing.

This is one good salad with good portions I intend to order again
on my next visit to Providore.

STEEL PLATE COOKED GARLIC BUTTER SALPICAO P395

Unlike the cubed salpicao I am used to, Providore's Salpicao is treated like steak.
You may request the server for your preferred doneness ie rare, medium rare, well done. The Salpicao served to us was medium well at least that's how it tasted to me.

I prefer medium rare. But this salpicao was still tender and succulent
despite being medium well. Loved the sweetness of the roasted garlic too. This will be perfect with cups of rice.

SEAFOOD AND RICE SKILLET P420

I enjoyed the creamy spinach pilaf. The prawns were a good size and really fresh and succulent.

The baby squid were tender and moist. The fish were melt in your mouth. The garlic-parsley-white wine-butter rounded up all the flavors together to make one sublime experience.

Will order this again

CHICKEN ALA KIEV P295

Those who love their food deep fried will love this. Chicken ala Kiev is a dish where chicken
fillet is pounded then coated with eggs and bread crumbs then rolled around some filling normally butter and parsley. Providore's version has the perfect crunch outside while letting us enjoy the moistness of the chicken inside brought on by the herb butter filling. One order comes with yummy fries, salad and rolls. Special mention to the freshly baked rolls which are D I V I N E

CHICKEN AND WAFFLES P350

Omg , the waffles were to die for. They were crunchy and chewy at the same time.
That bacon maple syrup is worth its weight in gold Reminiscent of Kettle's Buttermilk Chicken, Providore's version does not miss a note as well. Chicken was crispy and juicy. I loved the sausage gravy.
The combination of salty and sweet and crispy and chewy is more than I can take.
This was so good! Providore please be open at 7am so I can drag the hubby and the piggery in your resto for breakfast.

This is a perfect 5/5 for me. Love it!

Note though that you wont find this in Providore's menu.
It is a special dish that can be ordered though. Just request from your server

GRILLED PEPPER AND HERB BEEF SHORT RIBS P495

The beef short ribs were melt -in-your-mouth delicious. The thin layer of fat was
sinful and scrumptious. The burnt corn and bell pepper chimichurri was the perfect foil to temper the richness of the short ribs. Although I loved how creamy the mashed potatoes were , I am pretty sure our "piggery" would order extra cups of rice for this hahaha

CAST IRON GARLIC PARSLEY DINNER ROLLS P175

Love love bread. I can forego other carbs including pasta. But bread is simply something
I have no will to resist specially when its made from scratch and baked fresh

Conversely, stale-commercial bread can easily ruin the meal for me.
Good thing I found my match in Providore. Im in bread heaven.Their dinner rolls were a mouthful literally and figuratively.
Drenched in garlic-parsley-butter, they were SUBLIME.

That's it uwian na . May nanalo na hahaha

MACARONI PIMIENTO FOUR CHEESE GRATIN P395

This was easily one of my favorite dish. Aside from being a bread-person, I am also
a cheese-fiend. This dish had all the cheese I wanted. It had cheese pimiento cream, sharp cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan, and house cured smoked bacon The portion was generous as well for its price. The only downside was all that carbs.

Enjoy this sinful treat on your cheat day hahaha

UBE TRES LECHE

I took a bite of the beautiful dessert and it was soft and fluffy so like a chiffon cake.
The ube glaze and ube butter cream were delicious.This is one dessert I would like to order again

COCONUT CREAM TRES LECHES P295

It was frosted with what looked like boiled marshmallow icing. Cake inside
was fluffy and soft as well like chiffon. Garnish on top were toasted coconut strips. Another winning dessert by Providore.

SUMMARY

What a way to experience PROVIDORE for the first time. The restaurant pulled out all the stops to make sure that we enjoyed their delicious food. Their confidence was impressive. We ordered ala carte spontaneously. There was no prepared roster of meals for tasting.

My favorites were chicken and waffles, the Providore Salad, cast iron garlic dinner rolls, the seafood skillet and rice, baked macaroni pimiento and 4 cheese gratin, the love burger, truck stop pork chop, short beef ribs and the desserts. In other words, practically all the dishes served hahaha

Price was reasonable considering the quality of ingredients
and the serving size

Service was cheerful and attentive.

Location was convenient.Providore is easy to find at the ground floor of SM Aura in Taguig across Uniqlo.

Thank you Ms. Michele Magtoto of Providore for having us and @johnbunag and @teamkaladkarin for the invite.

Definitely coming back with the piggery in tow

Doing what you love means eating what you love. This cafe is a safe haven for a comforting dining experience. I’ve had many good memories in Providore as every time I dine here I am with friends who I catch up with.

Providore and the Raintree Restaurants are featuring their 10084️LOVE BURGER10084️ until February 28. What better way to be mushy to your sweetiepoo by surprising him/her/it with a tear-jerking heart shaped cheese beef burger. Orrr, if you are happily single, celebrate your blissfully uncomplicated life with an order for one. Look at how cute they are. 450.00 with fries.

Here’s what else we tried:

🅿️CAST IRON GARLIC PARSLEY DINNER ROLLS
175.00
Drenched in garlic parsley butter
Say butter and garlic and parsley.

🅿️PROVIDORE BIG PLATE SALAD
350.00
Fresh avocado, crispy bacon, bleu cheese, cranberries & walnuts, arugula, market greens, with buttermilk ranch dressing
I liked how big the serving size is for one person who wants a healthy lunch, or how it can be shared by a few. It has a lot of elements in the salad too.

127752🅿️MACARONI PIMIENTO FOUR CHEESE GRATIN
395.00
Cheese pimiento cream, sharp cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan, house cured smoked bacon and macaroni
Yuuuummmm!!!!! I was hoping someone would order this haha. Thanks Angela! This was cheesy and creamy. I liked the addition of pimiento, it gave an extra layer of flavour to the pasta. Super big serving too.

🅿️CHICKEN AND WAFFLE
350.00
Crispy fried chicken and waffle
Same chicken from their Winner Winner Chicken Dinner, but with waffles. Sweet and savoury combo.

🅿️CHICKEN A LA KIEV
295.00
Stuffed with oozing garlic herb butter on top of housemade fries, served with market greens, & dinner rolls
Didn't expect to like this one. The chicken was still moist even after we were done taking photos.

🅿️SEAFOOD & RICE SKILLET
420.00
Fresh prawns, fish & quid in garlic, parsley and white wine butter, special spice, served with creamy spinach pilaf
My MOOs favourite dish here. The seafood was fresh and the rice is flavorful.

🅿️GRILLED "TRUCK STOP" PORK STEAK
595.00
Maple bourbon bbq glaze, house fries, coleslaw
Talk about a large piece. We laughed when we say it was as big as your head. I liked the sauce they used, and that it came with fries and coleslaw. Im not a rice person.

127752🅿️STEEL PLATE COOKED GARLIC BUTTER SALPICAO STEAK
395.00
Sizzled U.S. beef, chili, garlic, native onions and olive oil
Very tender. Look at how much garlic there is on the plate! Its not the usual salpicao you get from your favourite watering hole.

🅿️GRILLED PEPPER & HERB BEEF SHORTRIBS
495.00
Burnt corn & bell pepper chimichurri, beef jus, kale & spinach sauté, creamy mashed potatoes
I almost always order short ribs when i see it. This was a good dish, especially if you like the meat + fat combo. I like that it comes with a generous amount of mashed potato. I find it laughable when restaurants provide a tiny scoop of potatoes. Since i like potatoes more than rice, this was perfect.

127752🅿️COCONUT CREAM TRES LECHES
🅿️UBE TRES LECHES CAKE
295.00
CCTL - Stuffed with macapuno & topped with dessicated coconut, served with tres leches cream
UTL - Ube cake with a layer of ube cream frosting and a light ube sauce
If theres one things that beckons you to step into their restaurant it should be their beautiful assortment of pastries fronting the cafe. It was hard to decide which was better, but sitting here now I like the CCTL now because of the mound of Chantilly cream.

They also have a small marketplace where you can purchase pinoy crafted items such as Barik lambanog, home scents like the intoxicating Panaderia room spray, and tables runners.

This visit was just as great as my previous experiences. Service has always been hospitable. They’re open as early as 8:00 AM for breakfast, their bacon tocino is amazing.

We had a sumptuous lunch at Providore. All the dishes we had will make you come back for more and want to try the other dishes ‘coz it is really “SULIT” and delicious. Macaroni Pimiento Four-cheese Gratin will be my favorite during our eat up on that day. Combining with the Chicken & Waffle will make it more appetizing.

Overall, we enjoy everything. From the cozy ambiance, food and the service. Definitely, I will be back again.

I did not bring any expectations when I was on my way to this restaurant to keep an open mind and palate to experience every delightful taste that I might come across.

PROVIDORE is part of the Raintree group which also owns the cafe by the Museum in Ayala.

It was a riot when the food came. I didnt know which on to take a bite first. My favourites were the salad and winner winner chicken.

It was good to note that the serving sizes were very generous and the price is not too high for the quality of the food that you will get.

I did get the Kalamansi and lychee cooler which was a pleasant surprise.

Of course we had room for desert in I enjoyed the cake with coconut milk on the Side which was unexpected.

Will definitely recommend to family and friends.

It’s Feb-ibig already and indeed, love is in the air! I’m sure by now, since it’s less than a week before Valentine’s Day, you’ve found that spot for you and your special someone. But if you haven’t, I’ll let you in on my personal favorite place: Providore!

Providore has been giving amazing dining experiences to friends and families alike for quite some time now with their amazing comfort food done right, and utterly lovely presentations. For valentine’s in particular, this place is definitely your next best bet for your date!

From February 5 until 28, 2018, Providore is offering again their pretty and rather tasty Love Burger! That brioche heart bun on that juicy and tender patty with cheddar cheese is absolutely delicious. Plus, served with their fries, it’s as filling in the tummy as your heart is full when in love. (Yehesss 1285699996🏼) Plus at PHP 450+ only, this dish is such a steal and can be enjoyed personally, or shared with your significant other. So you better spend your Valentine’s date in Providore in any, if not all of the days the Love Burger is still available.

Everything else we had was amazing! I really do think all of their food is awesome consistently. Here is a rundown of everything else we had!

1.) Providore Big Plate Salad - PHP 350
“Fresh avocado, crispy bacon, bleu cheese, cranberries & walnuts, arugula, market greens, served with buttermilk ranch dressing”
If I am being completely honest, this is one of the best salads I have had in my life. As in ever. No joke. The dressing was amazing, and the amount of it was just right for all the greens. The bacon and walnuts gave it a nice contrast in texture as it gave it some bite with the crunch. I am no vegetable eater, but this is just wonderful! I absolutely loved it!

2.) Cast Iron Garlic Parsley Dinner Rolls - PHP 175
“Drenched in garlic parsley butter”
This is so simple yet so flavorful! The melted butter is so tasty and the bread is nicely baked with just a little toast on the outside and super soft on the inside. I wanted to eat more of this but I didn’t want to be too full immediately either with everything else we were gonna try.

3.) Chicken and Waffles - PHP 350
This was technically not on the menu, but Providore offers it to their guests as a special request. We all know their Winner Winner Chicken Dinner is amazing, and to put it on a fresh made waffle makes the meal magical. The sweet-salty contrast is at play here, and I am all for this flavor combination any day. The crisp on the fried chicken is flawless, and the meat itself is juicy and delicious. I am salivating just thinking about their take on this all-American comfort food!

4.) Chicken a la Kiev - PHP 295
“Stuffed with oozing garlic herb butter on top of housemade fries, served with market greens, & dinner rolls”
I have always been a fan of this dish, and Providore does it exceptionally. The chicken is tender and had a nice cook while the garlic herb butter was just enough to complement the meat, and not overpower the taste. The dish was quite a thing of beauty in terms of plating and it was equally great to eat as it was nice to look at.

5.) Grilled “Truck Stop” Pork Steak - PHP 595
“Maple bourbon bbq glaze, house fries, coleslaw”
This ginormous serving of pork chop was not only gorgeous but absolutely delicious. I am a fan of the flavor of American barbecue on anything whether meat or chips or even sandwiches and the nice smoky flavor is very pronounced in the one. It’s so good, plus the tenderness of the steak is spot on. I really loved it!

6.) Grilled Pepper & Herb Beef Shortrib - PHP 495
“Burnt corn & bell pepper chimichurri, beef jus, kale & spinach sauté, creamy mashed potatoes”
I loved this dish too! The beef shortrib is so tender and tasty. The mash that came with is was great too!

7.) Seafood & Rice Skillet - PHP 420
“Fresh prawns, fish & quid in garlic, parsley and white wine butter, special spice, served with creamy spinach pilaf”
This seafood dish is so awesome! Everything on this skillet is flavorful and had a wonderful cook. I was very particular on the texture of the fish and each one was just great. It was jice because even if the dish is tomato-based, the hero of the dish remains to be the fish.

8.) Steel Plate Cooked Garlic Butter “Salpicao” Steak - PHP 395
“Sizzled U.S. Beef, Chili, Garlic, Native onions and olive oil”
This was so “iiyak-muna-ko” goood! I have never enjoyed salpicao more apart from having it in my house. The garlicky taste is so well balanced with the Worcestershire sauce. The savory flavor of the sauce is added with a tinge of sweetness with the caramelized onions. As for the steak, one can choose the cook on the dish and ours was medium well. I would’ve wanted it more medium, but my fellow foodie Alex had the say on this dish as he was the one who chose it. The cook was perfect though as per his preference, and I absolutely loved this dish!

9.) Macaroni Pimiento Four-Cheese Gratin - PHP 395
“Cheese pimiento cream, sharp cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan, house cured smoked bacon and macaroni”
This was my pick and I loved this dish too! Everyone was patting me on the back for my choice dish. Hihihi 128569 Glad I got their nods on this because I really really loved it! It was so fragrant with the pimiento and it gave such a nice deep savory taste to the dish. The four kinds of cheese they used mixed so well together that it wasn’t at all cloying. Plus the croutons on top gabe it a contrast in texture, giving it some bite which I really liked. The way it was molten was to die for, even as the pasta was still al dente. I can go on and on about this dish, but bottom line is it’s just so <inster mura here> SO GOOOD! 128571

10.) Coconut Cream Tres Leches - PHP 295
“Stuffed with macapuno & topped with dessicated coconut, served with tres leches cream”
I’m not a big fan of coconut based desserts, but this was really good too! It was not too sweet, but the flavor of the coconut is still pronounced. And the creaminess is wonderful.

11.) Ube Tres Leches Cake
This was on their display chiller and since one of the other foodies wanted to have something ube for dessert, Michelle recommended this and it was such an awesome reco! It was light and had just enough creaminess. Again it was not too sweet which was better for me. It was a great way to end the meal.

12.) Raspberry “Arnold Palmer” - PHP 150
“Half freshly brewed iced tea & half fresh lemonade with lemons, and raspberry syrup”
I had to commend on their drinks as well because again they’re so good! This beverage was so refreshing and so pretty as well.

13.) Providore Punch - PHP 175
“Watermelon, pineapple & passionfruit punch topped with cherry syrup”
I wasn’t able to try all the rest of the drinks but I wanted to point how pretty they are presented. And the feedback from my fellow foodies are all high praises.

14.) Calamansi Lychee Cooler - PHP 120
“Fresh calamansi, lychee, topped with soda and mint”
Again, all my friend had to say about this drink is how it was refreshing as it was pretty to picture. Plus it wasn’t too sweet according to him.

Everything about thos places is awesome! It’s the perfect place for your for any occasion! I definitely recommend this to everyone, and I cannot wait to be back!

Fun fact: They opened a branch in Cebu and I will definitely visit there too very soon! 10084

Happy valentine’s to everyone! 128568

Always a great time with awesome foodies! 128571 EJ B Christina R Pigoutsundays O Alex A

Had a group eat out yesterday,lunch to be specific.Its a cafe/bakeshop/bar/ restaurant ,they served Filipino and Italian dishes and I'm so happy its not fusion,different cuisine in one establishment.Will go straight into the review and food served.

Garlic Parsley Dinner Rolls
Providore Salad
Winner Winner Chicken Dinner
Chicken Ala Kiev
Seafood And Rice Skillet
Grilled Truck Stop Pork Steak
Steel Plate Cooked Garlic Butter
Salpicao
Grilled Pepper and Herb Beef Short Ribs
Coconut Cream Tres Leches
Ube Cake Tres Leches
Macaroni Pimiento Four Cheese Gratin

With the listing above ,one could say it was a feast.All items were good but I will just zero in on what really caught my attention

Macaroni Pimiento Four Cheese Gratin never thought this simple,common style macaroni dish would charmed me,sharp cheddar, parmesan,cheese Pimiento cream,smoked bacon and macaroni.The blankets of cheese with bread covering which enveloped the entire dish was an enticing sight.Making it into a gratin made the simple dish a heightened macaroni experience.

Steel Plate Cooked Garlic Butter Salpicao-
Slices of US beef in sizzling steel plate presented Pinoy " bistek style" with Asian onion rings and crunchy roasted garlic on top.The marination was on the mark ,tender slices of beef made it real pleasant and the crunchy garlic made it superb.

Grilled Truck Stop Pork Steak-nice bourbon styled BBQ styled pork steak,the BBQ sauce was not overpoweringly sweet ,a good sign.The heftiness of the meat is very impressive and with the price of Php595 it's a thumbs up.Nice sides of slaw and fries,slaw was not the usual and the right amount of dressing was spot on,fries nicely executed.

The desserts are very good COCONUT TRES LECHES has a glorious touch,creamy layers of goodness,the coconut cream adds an spectacle to the item while the toasted dessicated coconut provided the texture.As an ube afficionado I should say the UBE TRES LECHES is very very good,nice ube frosting covering ube flavored chiffon, drizzled with ube sauce .The distinct ube taste was very evident.

Rustic wooden interiors was very appealing,al fresco bar and area was attractive.

Service friendly and commendable.

And for a "purveyor " like Providore ,I will give my happy place rating.128076128076128076128076128076

The whole month of February is a month most couples are excited for.And Providore SM Aura has something in store for everyone9786️,the Love Burger.thick juicy beef patty enclaved in a heart shaped brioche bread with some fixings and cheddar cheese.Comes with fries on the side.

I like the thickness of the patty,how they've cooked it medium well ,I think you can request for the doneness of your meat.You can even share it if you're not a voracious diner.At Php450+++ at it's a good deal.

For a limited run only.More on Providore on the next review.

Providore is in my favourite cafes list. We have been coming here since they opened in 2016. They say they’re mainly a Filipino restaurant, with hints of other cuisines in a few dishes. Its kinda like how i would cook my food at home, I guess that’s why I like this place, just a little bit of Pinoy cooking to remind you of home.

Favorites here are:

Negros Burrata Cheese
Zucchini Pecorino Fries
Bacon Tocino
Crispy Seafood Mayo Roll
Seafood and Rice Skillet
Spicy Crab Laing

What I didn’t like - Calamansi Lychee Cooler (no calamansi & lychee taste) and the Crab & Avocado Toast (I think avocados werent in season when we tried it.).

There is still a lot I haven’t tried here. Most food not on my favourite list is still pretty good for us. Service has always been great at each visit. They have outdoor seating perfect for an early breakfast.

Sadly, expected way too much.

Burrata shell was old that it was reaallyy rubbery. Good thing, it’s the thick kind which I like and the cream was so flavorful.

Crispy Seafood Mayo Roll. I wish it tasted as good as it looks. I honestly couldn’t tell if it was fish I was eating or what. The seafood lacked flavor and had the worst batter. It was not crispy at all but rubbery and stale. Sauce couldn’t even save it. Brioche buns were too oily. Chips was okay though.

Waffle and chicken. Look at that chicken. Enough said.
Waffles were good though. Loved the maple bacon syrup.

Very pleasant ambience. 🔶🔶🔶🔶
Pleasant staff too 🔶🔶🔶🔶
Palabok - elevated 🔶🔶🔶🔶. Its a “soshal” version.
Chicken bbq plate 🔶🔶🔶🔸- tender, tasty (sweet) comes with garlic-java rice.
Pork steak plate 🔶🔶🔶 meh. Aside from the good size, forgettable. Im a pork fan. This isn’t even Pinoy style (maple and something else marinade). They could’ve marinated with key lime or something else instead. Comes with paprika fries.
Backyard mojito - 🔶🔶🔶🔶
Craft beer - 🔶🔶🔶🔸

It was just a few months ago when Providore delighted my tummy with its superb Bone Marrow Burger. I had a quick chat with A, one of the owners of Raintree Restaurants and I got an insider info that they plan to open an al fresco dining area to serve early morning meals and after work drinks. And last February 8, Providore Backyard, finally opened.

Hello, Providore Backyard!

The chic white shed, faux grass and bar were the first things we saw as soon as we stepped out of the air-conditioned section of Providore. Not only does the set up recreate a “backyard look”, it also exudes a very homey and relaxed ambiance perfect for that well deserved nightcap.

Since we wanted to stick with some light snacks, R and I opted to go with Cali Dog (PHP295) and Steel Plate Nachos (PHP395). For drinks, we went with Red Sangria (PHP275) and Margarita Berry (PHP225).

First served were our drinks and both were pretty good.

The red sangria had a good amount of fruit chunks to make the drink sweet and refreshing.

The Margarita Berry was delightful too. Though it may not have the same punch as other margaritas you’d get elsewhere,

I liked that I could have a glass or two of this delectable drink without having to worry about wobbling home.

The huge plate of nachos was served next and it was packed with cheese, guacamole, onions, pickles and tomato bits guaranteeing each mouthful to tickle your taste buds.

What I loved most about this dish though was that the nacho chips remained crispy despite swimming in toppings for 20 minutes or so. (We had to wait for Cali-Dog before indulging in this great for sharing plate of goodies. Coz, flatlay.)

Though the Cali-Dog didn’t have what we’d call mouthwatering plating, it made up for its lack of Instagram worthiness with taste.

I love the snap I get from each bite of the hotdog and the generous serving of sauerkraut, mustard and bacon bits. The fries on the side were perfectly seasoned too and complemented the hotdog.

Though we were only able to try the casual snacks and bar chows, Providore Backyard also offers breakfast meals. And great news to early risers! This picturesque al fresco dining area is open as early as 8 am. Fret not night owls as you could still get your late night grub till 2am.

There is a not-so-secret haven in the SM Aura Premiere, which happens to offer such an impressive and well-rounded array of food and beverages. Providore, which is a play on the word “provider” is a restaurant that takes pride in their knack of pleasing people with the food rather than impressing them. Hold the thought, however, on the food, we are going to focus on their coffee.

New exciting promos are out in tandem with SM Aura Premier’s Art in Coffee. This 2 day affair highlighted our strong caffeine boost coffee, and Providore took part of this campaign. This occasion was a platform to feature notable names and neophytes in the local art scene as well.

Providore's main treat for you and me is their Ice Blended Coffee, 2 for the price of 1 at just Php 175. And this is available only until the end of this month.

Their Ice Blended Coffee selections come in three favorite flavors: White Chocolate, Salted Caramel, and Mocha. Each flavor comes in 3 ways too: regular, with chocolate chips, or with crumble.

What’s great about these drinks is they’re not executed like the usual coffee frappe. They actually come out like a milkshake. In this case, a coffee milkshake. They’re thick, just the right strength of flavor that’s enough to make you appreciate it, and the added crunch from either the chocolate chips or the crumble. There are also surprise coffee bean nibs at the bottom for a crunchy chew.

And if that’s not enough of a treat, Providore has just also launched their flavored cortado line. For the benefit of the non-coffee enthusiasts, a cortado is an espresso or coffee added with the same amount of warm milk to reduce the acidity. Providore came out with 4 flavors: regular, white chocolate, chocolate, and salted caramel. All these are served in the traditional cortado cup, which has a metal ring base and metal wire handle.

We were treated to see the head barista masterfully craft the latte art. We also got a few tips and new information on coffee in general.
It's always a welcome education to a start-up blogger like me.

You’ll also make many discoveries when you explore the storefront. On the left side, you have an aquarium for the tempting and indulgent pastries that Providore bakes, which is also attached to their coffee bar. And to the right are countless products from local brands. You’re sure to whip out your wallet for a jar or three from this section.

As cliche as this may sound, you really can’t miss out on their promo. Bring a friend or three to enjoy the Ice Blended Coffee drinks while enjoying the comforting escape that Providore provides (pun intended). Don't forget this ends along with September.

Ikaw ba’y nalolongkot at walang makaosap?

Ang solosyon? Somolat ng rebyo o di kaya’y basahen and isinolat ko.

————

Sa halagang humigit kumulang na limandaang piso, maaari mong malasap ang karneng iniluto sa sandamakmak na mantikilya at buo-buong bawang.

Nagkakahalagang P395 ang karneng hiniwa sa maliliit na tila parisukat na hugis. Malasang malasa ito at tiyak na magugustuhan ng kahit sinong mahilig sa karneng hindi matabang o makunat.

Para sa pinakamasarap na isteyk, imumungkahi kong ipaluto ang karne nang katamtaman (medium) at hindi katamtamang magaling (medium well).

Gayunpaman, malungkot kong ibinabalita na ang kanilang mabawang na kanin (garlic rice) ay tila nakawang kalsada (highway robbery) ang presyo.

Ipagpalagay na nating malaki ang isang plato nito, sa halagang isang daang piso - mas nanaiisin kong liitan na lamang nila ang sukat ng kaning ito.

Ang iyong ulam kapares ng higanteng kaning bawang ay paniguradong bitin. Madali mong mauubos ang karne subalit kalahati pa ng kanin ang matitira.

Tiyak na nanaisin mo pang kumain ng karagdagang karne subalit maalala mong apat na raan ang halaga nito.

Pagmamasdan mo ang natirang kanin at malinis na plato ng karne at magpapasyang simutin na lamang ang natirang katas ng karne at bawang.

Ito’y ibubuhos (mas nararapat na ipatak, kung tutuusin) mo sa ngayong malungkot na plato ng lutong bigas.

Ang serbidora ay lalapit sayo upang tanungin kung may nais ka pang hilingin. Mabilis mong kukumbinsihin ang sarili mo na busog ka na habang isinasalpak ang kutsa kutsarang kanin sa iyong bibig. Ngingiti ka at magalang na sasabihing, “Ay okay na. Thank you!”

Iiisipin mo ang malasang karneng ito kahit ilang linggo na ang nakalipas. Buwan na ang nakalipas at matatagpuan mo ang sarili mong sumusulat ng rebyu, habang inaalala ang masayang karanasan sa Providore.

Ngunit.

Ngunit maalala mo ang kalsadang nakawang presyo at magdadalawang isip.

Ika nga ni Abe C, ako ba’y magbabalik?

Pwidi.

Piro dipindi.
