First time for me to taste Argentinian food. It was okay but really nothing to rave about.

They offer superb Peruvian Spiced Chicken and Bulalo Estofado (their best sellers and now I know why). We also got free Salted Caramel Cheesecake for completing the no phone challenge which was also good. I really enjoyed their food. Highly recommended. The service and ambiance were not bad either. Love the place. Will definitely be back.

Sobremesa!
I love this place! They have a comfortable chair, the table setting is attractive and the ambiance is perfect for a laid back lunch or just have a lil munch time.

They offer Lunch specials which costs Php250.00, it comes with either coffee or tea! They have a wide selection of lunch specials!

We had the ff:
Grilled Tanigue with crispy garlic and sweet potato and green beans salsa - o diba pangalan palang ng dish bongga na! Hahaha
The grilled tanigue tasted rich plus the crispy garlic added aroma to this delightful dish. The green and beans salsa is also delicious and helps balances the taste of fish. 128523

Pork Belly - this putok batok dish is also "patok" sa barkada namin, who doesnt want belly?? It was served crispy crunchy mouth watering delicious! Hahaha

Chicken BBQ with pickled cucumber and tomato - i didnt have a chance to taste this but it seems to be good because my boss, finished it in an instant. (Maybe gutom lang sya? Haha)

The free brewed coffee is delicious and I had fun with it since it was served on a green mug haha its soooo cute!

All in all, Sobremesa is a good place to dine and perfect alternative from the fast foods within the Ortigas CBD. 🤗128522

I was looking to eat at some place new in Ortigas.

I ordered their stir fried beef for 250PHP.

It was okay, the serving was good for the price. What I liked is the service and the ambiance. 🖒

Got to try Sobremesa's Bulalo Estofado, Peruvian Spice Roasted Chicken and Barako Coffee Crusted Rib Eye. Taste wise, it didn't go well. The texture of the rib eye is too grainy maybe because of the coffee. Bulalo is too ordinary and the chicken just okay. 128529

I am beyond happy that restaurants are bobbing up just a few steps from my place and one of them is Sobremesa. It was around 9:45PM when we visited the place on a weekday. Just me and my cousin inside the restaurant. Pabor samin dapat!

It was so hard to get a server's attention. I think they were already cleaning up and preparing to leave. Got one's attention and approached us with a smile. I think he knew we were a bit pissed. 128512 We ordered their Bulalo Estofado (the very reason why we chose to eat dinner here), Peruvian Spiced Roasted Chicken, Garlic Rice and Salted Caramel and Banana Cheesecake.

I don't know what to say about their Bulalo Estofado. WOW na lang. Meat was very tender and the stew was super delicious. I didn't see any fried plantains but it seemed like it was simmered with some. Hands down! This family recipe of sweet and salty braised stew is a must try.

The chicken was disappointing. I don't think that the chicken was fresh. I know they're about to close but we deserve quality food. It came with three kinds of sauce, Jalapeno and Coriander, Chimichurri and Garlic Yoghurt Sauce. These sauces brought flavors I was looking for in a Peruvian chicken. It tasted good but it's not on the same level with other peruvian chicken dishes I tried. Mesclun's is one of the best for me. Another one is from cocina peruvia.

Garlic rice na lang, parang yung kanin kahapon pa. It was very dry like it was stir-fried three times. Pangat? Pangatlong init.

We almost lost hope but their Salted Caramel and Banana Cheesecake gave us our hopesback 128514. Very soft and creamy in the middle with a cakey edge. The banana on top was like banana compote, sweet! Love the salted caramel as it brings symmetry to the flavors.

I still want to go back but during lunch. I still enjoyed the food because it's undeniably delicious especially the bulalo estofado. I also wanted to try other offerings.

You might be wondering why I have a photo of a cage instead of food for this review . Well its about this restaurant's promo that if you agreea to have your phones locked in a cage and not use them while eating, you get a slice of cheesecake for free. Sounds like a fun promo right? More.important than the gimmick though is the great food they serve.

The peruvian chicken was simply amazing. It has a spicy and savory flavor making it standout from other chicken recipes out there. You also get to enjoy it with a choice of three dips namely garlic, chimichuri and jalapeno.These dips enhance the flavor of the chicken more.

Another standout is the bulalo estofado. Tender beef bulalo meat with a light mildly sweet broth. If you enjoy putting sabaw on your rice this the perfect ulam for you.

The lengua was also good. It was very tender and capers were added to it in the sauce.The salty flavor capers help neutralize the usual gamey lavor of the ox tongue.

Be sure to end your meal with the delicious cheesecakes. He saltted banana caramel is the best seller but just as good is the mango coconut cheesecake.

Peruvian chicken with three dips, it's a bit expensive and you need the dip like chimichurri or mayonnaise with jalapeños to bring out the flavors, grilled blue marlin fish fillet was good. The chorizo and peas rice was tasty. The seafood tomato soup serving was small for its price. We were hungry so all the food taste good but serving size for its price should be more.

Sorry, but I have to agree with the two-star raters. The food trip was such a disappointment.

Had the 1/2 Peruvian Spiced Roasted Chicken and garlic rice. Supposedly a bestseller. Expected it to be better than Senor Pollo, but after one piece and even with three sauces... No, it was just average.

Servings were ok, but the service was not. The staff were nice, but it was a slooowww noon. From the meal prep to the bill-out... It was more than an hour total. Understaffed? Probably. With an almost empty resto during peak hours? Not acceptable.

To sum up, for the food and service, Sobremesa is quite overrated and overpriced. Definitely, it was an unnecessarily expensive lunch.

Sobremesa definitely deserves 5 stars! I went here last January with my friends and I was very much impressed by their service - staff is courteous and service is prompt. And, not only do they have the best Bulalo Estofado but their salads and desserts are equally to die for as well (try their Salted Caramel and Banana Cheesecake, you won't regret it!). What's also nice about Sobremesa is that the place is perfect for when you just want to relax and unwind after work, and maybe have a drink or two with your friends. At any rate, looking forward to try their new dishes soon. Keep it up, guys!

I was really excited to try this place out but every item we got was so meh, including the barako crusted ribeye steak (photo). 128546

It was our first time here and we even brought our Mexican guest with us. The croquettas were meh, steak was meh, fish was meh, lomo saltado could've been better... I'm not sure what it was that made them all meh. Lack of flavor? Anyway, we got a lot of stuff and I don't even remember all of them. All I remember is that they were meh and expensive.

Servers were friendly though. Huhu. Probably won't be going back here.

For this steak. This Barako Crusted Ribeye Steak. Worth it. Promise. The name itself is like it's on beast mode.

The croquetas were okay. Nothing great about it. The estofado was okay too. I would not recommend it to any of my friends. Not worth it plus it was a bit expensive too.

Went here after it was decided that a college block christmas reunion be held there. It's part of the new Sapphire Block building by the Ortigas Building or the new Marco Polo.

First things first, parking is quite hard as slots for the building are limited. But not a real negative since scarcity of parking slots is applicable to the entire Ortigas area.

Seating is limited so reserve ahead. It was breezy so while we were seated outside it was very comfortable.

A like the restaurants who does their menu like this - where they don't offer every possible dish but the focus is on the select ones that's very good.

We went with the croquetas and the salad for appetizers. Both were good but not really exceptional either. For the main courses, we went with the estofado, the pork belly and the Peruvian chicken.

They serve the chicken with several sauces, I liked the chimmichurri best. (Reminds me of Señor Pollo) The pork belly was tasty and seasoned well, but the highlight for me was the estofado. Tender and succulent with a mix of it's broth/sauce and veggies.

A selection of wine as well with some hard drinks and a beer selection.

Over-all a nice hang-out place, pricing is above your average meal price but forgivable with the food quality. Will go back with the wife later on!

It's new in the Ortigas neighborhood and it's the first pure restaurant in Sapphire Bloc. It means conversations after a meal. It serves fusion of South American and Filipino dishes. Chef Benjo is the head of the kitchen and is also chef of Spanish restaurant, Relik. As it is new expect a short menu. Must try include Estofado, Ribeye Steak and Croquetas. It's so good, you'll come back and invite everyone you know. The serving sizes for entrees are good to share.

We were lucky enough to be invited to a pre-opening dinner at Sobremesa. They wanted friends and family to try out their menu before they opened last November 4. 128522

Sobremesa is located in a brand new commercial strip in Sapphire Residences. It was a pretty good location since they're right in the middle of several office buildings...perfect for business meetings and/or after-office gatherings. Compared to their neighbors (Moonshine, Craft, etc.) theirs was the only non-watering hole establishment there. They DO serve beer, but they want their patrons to focus on the FOOD. And their menu - simple and straightforward, for now - is the real star of the show.

Their chef is Chef Benjo Tuason, of Relik and Urbn fame. I'm such a big fan of his (Relik suki right here), so I was excited to try out his take on Filipino-Peruvian fusion.

We ordered Chorizo Croquetas, Tanigue Ceviche (a fancy way of saying "kilawin"), Calamari Salad, half a Peruvian Spiced Roasted Chicken (with 3 sauces on the side: Jalapeño and Corriander, red pepper sauce, and garlic yoghurt sauce), Bulalo Estofado, and Chorizo and green pea fried rice (which is good for 2-3 persons).

My favorites were the Croquetas: so nicely seasoned that you can make do without the sauce; and the Peruvian Spiced Roasted Chicken: it was a simple dish, but it went really well with the rice, and I couldn't get enough of the garlic yoghurt sauce. 128076🏽 The Bulalo Estofado was also nice: the meat was very tender! But the sauce was a bit too sweet for me.

I wasn't able to eat the ceviche, but it was my husband's favorite dish because they prepared it perfectly (according to him, "Hindi malansa, and maraming spices").

It's too bad we weren't able to try their Barako Coffee Crusted Rib-Eye...I hear it's one of their best dishes. I'll be sure to try it out next time!!! The name itself sounds delish. 128523

We also had dessert! Their only dessert offering was the Salted Caramel and Banana Cheesecake. It had such a generous drizzling of caramel, and several banana slices on top. My only suggestion would be for them to make it with a thicker graham crust, since the thick cheese layer in between was a bit too overwhelming.

"Sobremesa" defined is the time after lunch or dinner spent talking to the people you shared your meal with. Such an apt name for a restaurant, especially THIS restaurant, because the food and ambiance really encourage you to spend more time with the people you love. The interiors were welcoming, using a color scheme of burnt orange, brown and white. The high ceiling made it look airy and comfortable, and the lighting was bright and cheery. 128077🏽 And after having a nice, family-style meal, you can't help but stay and rave about it, right?

My husband was also very impressed with their service. Sure, some of the waitstaff still had a lot of practicing to do, to memorize the dishes, but their attention to us was impeccable. He just wishes that they include coffee in their menu soon. Hehe.

So if you guys work in the Ortigas area, check out Sobremesa with your boss, your colleagues, your family or your friends. 128077🏽 Spend some quality time with them over a quality meal. 128522
