So here come the main attractions! K and I agreed on our selection and we had crispy mushrooms for starters, beef salad and pepper crab pasta. From the smell of the crispy mushrooms, the acids on my tummy started leaking. It tasted like deep fried pork rinds but softer and mushier with crispy edges. Paired with spiced cream sauce it was heavenly. As for the salad, what I especially love about it were the hint of tanginess from the sauce and the threads of beef that goes with it. The greens were crunchy and clean tasting. But the star of the night for me was the pepper crab pasta. It was deliciously peppery and really creamy and I loved it. But when K said that she couldn't taste the crab, I was eventually knocked off from heaven. I totally forgot about the dish's name. And yeah, what a disappointment that I couldn't really savor the crab in it. The pepper overpowered despite that it really caught my flavor palate. Oh well, life has its ups and downs. I will still love this. Could they maybe change the name to just pepper pasta? Haha! I'd definitley recommend Stella. Not Stella Artois, silly! Stella Wood Fired Bistro! Haha! (Don't trust google map on this place! Niligaw ako! Haha!) Trust your gut. 128514

I am a big fan of salted eggs. I would go crazy every time I see some in bazaars and end up buying at least half a dozen of these delectable poultry goods and enjoy it with tomatoes. I'd also order any dish with salted egg in order to satiate my undying desire for it. Unfortunately, not a lot of restaurants carry salted egg dishes. And so when Mela of Raintree Group posted Stella's newest salted egg creation, my tastebuds clamored for it and I can't let a week pass by without giving in to my tummy's desires.

Hello, Stella Wood Fired Bistro!

No heavy rainfall can come in between me and my salted eggs! Okay, fine. I was just so lucky that the rain stopped by the time I clocked out of work.

I managed to get to Stella around 6:30 pm and there were only a few tables occupied. I figured the heavy rain earlier and the fear for carmaggedon scared the bistro's regulars and potential customers. (I was wrong though as more diners came in past 7 pm.)

The restaurant has a chill vibe and seems like a perfect place for friends to catch up or a casual date over a few cocktails and light dishes.

I was quickly ushered to my table and I ordered a plate of Salted Egg Chips (PHP220). While waiting, one of the staff noticed that I put out my fan as I was feeling a bit hot. She quickly adjusted their small electric fan and pointed it towards me. I was impressed with her proactiveness.

My plate was served in a jiffy and Chef RJ who prepared it took some time off to explain the dish to me.

This version of salted egg chips is the creation of Chef Kalel in response to the increasing demand for the addicting savory snack that you could buy from weekend markets. The great thing though about this one from Stella is that you could control the richness of your chips. Unlike the ones from weekend markets, Stella's version is not coated with salted egg but comes with a dip composed of salted egg and maple butter creating a lovely contrast of sweet and salty flavors. The chips were also topped with basil leaves for a nice refreshing taste. They also made the potato chips ridged so that it'd be crispier.

The trick to enjoy these chips is to make sure that you let the chips soak in the delectable dip for a minute or two. I was very conservative at first and only put a bit on my chips and felt like I was eating usual crispy ridged potato chips. I was blown away though when I ate the chips soaking in dip. Forget control or being stingy! Let those chips drown in the oh-so-yummy sauce!

Oh and for all those salted egg lovers out there, Stella and Rocketroom is already thinking of selling their salted egg dip for us to enjoy at home with whatever... May it be chips, pasta, chicken fillet and whathaveyou! I can't wait to grab a jar or two of that!

While indulging on the superb chips, Mela suggested that I try Cha Cha Chia (PHP225), a refreshing combination of passionfruit syrup, chia seeds and lime soda.

It sure was a thirst quenching drink! It was slightly tangy because of the passionfruit syrup and the chia seeds added texture and character to the beverage. It also gave me an impression that I was drinking something healthy. I'd definitely order this again!

See you again, Stella! Thank you so much, Mela for being such a nice host! 10084

What's the CRAZE?

After availing the Php79.00 deal promo at Krispy Kreme, I went to Stella Wood Fired Bistro to try the famous Salted Egg Chips which is an obsession from Singapore.

Stella Wood Fired Bistro put its own version to the famous Salted Egg Chips, separating the salted egg from the potato chips, instead of putting them. The customers have the choice to put them or not.

For Php220.00 I got Salted Egg Chips (Homemade Potato Chips with Parmesan and Basil with Hot Maple Salted Egg Butter on the side) - 11088110881108811088️ 4/5

Stella Wood Fired Bistro is located at the Ground Floor of Bonifacio High Street Central, BGC, Taguig City.

For some weird reason lately, I've been chanced upon meeting up different circles of friends in Stella, but I'm not complaining at that because I'm always looking forward to good food 128522 It's price makes up for the quality and presentation which makes it a more rewarding dining experience 12852210084128077🏻

I never get tired of having their specialties over and over again, for our appetizer we had the Mushroom Chips in Aioli Dip, calamari like texture with a bit of crisp 128522

Then came our Spanish Chorizo friend rice, flavorful with the chorizo bits, garlic fried rice with herbs 12852210084

Next, the classic Porchetta in its crispy and juicy glory made more artsy with the swish of warm Rosemary Sultana Sauce.... My all-time favorite! 10084️ followed by our Slow Roasted Beef Belly in Truffle Cabernet Gravy, Roasted Mushrooms, Garlic Confit, topped with a Jamon Serrano Crisp 12852210084128077🏻

With the hot summer nights, it was best to chug it down with their refreshing, fruity flavored Sangria 127864127864127864Such a delight to once again dine at Stella 128522128077🏻10084

Got the two lunch sets, 1 (mushroom soup / truffle pasta) and 2 (salad and that porkchop with that awesomesauce for a sauce). Serving for both was actually just right. I loved how each set had its own theme, 2 was more on the sweet side while 1 was the exact opposite. They go well together so I assume that was the plan all along.

Plating was ala food network hehe, visually awesome. And most importantly they tasted delicious!

The place was nice and clean, sofas were comfy, music is light and jazzy.

For me the price was just right naman, there are other restos whose menu items cost more but dont taste as good. I'd say 1k is the norm for a meal for two, if you still have room for dessert make it 1.3k.

And these Fried Mushroom Chips were goooooodddd 128523 I was lucky to attend an event a week ago which was held here. So yeah, free food for the win!!! But why highlight this one, well, it was placed in front of me. I kept getting piece after piece. I might have finished the whole serving if not for my other companions. Nakakahiya 128517

So this appetizer was interesting. It's not the crunchy type of chip. You can still feel the mushroom's texture. A little salty but paired with their sauce, it balances the whole dish. Other dishes here were stellar too. A little on the expensive side but good for sharing. 128522

LOVED:
- Their PASTAS! Can't find the name of the dish but It had Spanish chorizo in it. The dish had no frills, and I enjoyed how simple and tasty it was. Another pasta dish I had was the mushroom fettuccine. It was superb! Very creamy... And you can really taste the truffle oil :)

LIKED:
- Their berry drinks! Very refreshing :)

CAN BE IMPROVED:
- Pizzas were ok. Had the Margherita and the Smoked bacon. The former was bland despite having cloves of garlic on it. The latter was just ok. Nothing out of this world.
- The desserts were too sweet! Had the warm cookie dough, and the lava cake with raspberry drizzle. I liked the plating though.

I will definitely come back for the pastas and their drinks :)

Chocolate and leche flan lovers, YOU HAVE TO READ THIS if you truly love chocolate and leche flan.

The photo above is their "Impossible Cake." The first layer is a solid (not airy!) leche flan that's baked(?) on top of a thick and moist layer of chocolate cake.

The leche flan is the type that's not bubbly but is instead thick and almost chewy yet sticky! I suck at describing but I hope you know what I mean! The chocolate cake is also very good!

I don't know how they make this! Duh, "Impossible Cake."

Service was good, the rest of my orders (seafood pasta and calamari) were also good but I really just want to talk about this Impossible Cake because you have to try it. 128557

P.S. It doesn't look all that impressive but trust me, it's good!

To be honest, I find that Stella's prices are too steep for their small servings but they make so much up for the flavor of their food. My friends and I ordered the Sesame honey beef pizza (395php) which exceeded our expectations. The spicy gochujang sauce and wasabi cream definitely elevates when you bite into a slice.

For our meal we (my 2 friends and I) ordered the Stella salad, Four cheese lasagna and the Sesame honey beef pizza and we left Stella with happy stomachs but not necessarily super full. We still had space for a hefty dessert.

If you're looking for someplace relaxing with a good vibe and delicious food definitely check out Stella!

Monday madness. We decided to have dinner in one of our favorite places in BGC. We had Truffle Pasta, Pizza, and Wine. They have good wine list. I love their Cabernet Sauvignon I just forgot the brand. For dessert, we had my forever favorite Chocolate Almond Cookie Dough128525128525128525

Drinks from Rocket Room, food from Stella...

We just ordered what we wanted then shared it all...

My order was the mushroom and truffle oil pizza... It's the dish most of us liked the best that night and even then I didn't think it was really that great... Great crust though!128522 The chicken was okay, the aglio olio was also okay... We also had appetizers and the skewers, but honestly, I couldn't remember that much... The food was a blur and just okay tasting for me... And it took a long time to be served... The servers (at Rocket Room) were very attentive but that's for the other restaurant... Pretty pricey, but then again do you really expect affordable at BGC?128513

Based on the food and price alone, it was just an okay experience for me...128522

It was a satisfying and fulfilling dessert filled with Stella’s Wood Fired Chocolate Almond Cookie Dough (Php195). All the staff were knowledgeable with their menu and pleasant.

We scraped the bowl clean off its gooey chocolatey cookie, mantecado ice cream, salted caramel drizzle, and rosemary pistachios.

Shobe loved it so much that after one bite she exclaimed, “This is so good! 5 over 5!” addressing my |ooloo rating.

The price is relatively cheaper comparing it with other restaurants in Bonifacio High Street Central area.

The chic interiors identified it clearly as a member of the Rain Tree group. Stylish yet comfortable, with an open kitchen, allowing you to see all the wood fire action.

Porchetta
The thin slices of pork were extremely moist, and the flavor of the fennel and herbs that was also rolled into it helped the flavor of the pork to just pop. The skin lining around the roll of pork was roasted to a crisp, almost chicharon texture. It let out a beautiful crunch upon every bite. The meat also paired well with the lightly sweet Rosemary Sultana sauce.

U.S. Beef Short Ribs
It was described in the menu as having a "Spicy, sticky, sweet sesame glaze".. Although the glaze was no doubt delicious, but I don't recall this being spicy at all. In case you're looking for a little heat in your ribs, this isn't it.

Wood Fired Chocolate Almond Cookie Dough
The best part of lunch was dessert. For a group of 5 we only ordered one and I think I ate most of it. Warm, sweet, chewy cookie filled with pistachios and topped with mantecado ice cream. I was in cookie heaven.

With great food, and great company, my Stella experience was a memorable one. Although it's a bit on the pricy side, Its actually a bit more reasonable compared to other restaurants in the area. I would love to go back to try the Pizzas, and Sandwiches!

Had 'slow roasted beef belly in truffle oil' and 'spinach & bacon gratin'. I can say that the dishes were salty 128530128563 and both became umay-goodness just halfway through. I didn't get to taste much of the truffle; and the olives were really overpowering for the beef dish. The spinach could have been great but was too salty and watery for a gratin128513

A little expensive but has cool place and good food.

Stella and Rocket Room which is just next door are affliated. Their dishes are specialized from wood-fired oven.

Good food but service was a bit slow.

Everything we ordered was wood fire oven baked:
1. Roasted Tomato "Margherita Rustica" pizza
2. Bone Marrow
3. Cookie Dough w/ vanilla ice cream (in photo)

The pizza was the crispy-chewy kind, which everyone loves. Didn't try the bone marrow but it got raves from my date.

But the highlight of the dinner was dessert - cookie dough hot and fresh from the oven, topped with vanilla ice cream and drizzled with caramel. I still dream about it.
