It was 2014 when I first reviewed The Bowery here in |ooloo. I remember giving it 5 stars due to its excellent service and drool-worthy food. I even used "I bowed at The Bowery" as my lead statement back then.

Fast forward to today, I'm still giving it perfect stars as this restaurant has become one of my favorites in BGC. I can't remember how many times I've been here already. But one thing is for sure, I keep coming back for their Brioche French Toast.

They have the best French toast in the Metro. Period. It's big, it's fluffy, it's melt-in-your-mouth kind of French toast. It's not overly sweet which works for me every time. One order comes with fresh fruits on the side. Usually there's green apple, grapes, slices of oranges, and strawberries. It's just perfect! I just couldn't dine here without ordering this - even with alcohol!

I also had their Plain Grilled Cheese sandwich during this visit. This came with homemade potato chips. If you want something light but satisfying, go get this. It's made with Yellow Cheddar, Monterrey Jack, and sourdough bread. It's not ooey gooey cheesy though. However it's really tasty and a pretty nice snack to satisfy anyone's cheese cravings.

One thing that I would also like to highlight about this restaurant is their interiors. It's very modern and classy. This can be a date place actually. The first floor has a more romantic vibe compared to the hippie and cool ambiance upstairs. Actually, the second floor transforms to a bar during night time. They actually have nice music as they have guest DJs at night.

The Bowery stays true to its promise to serve only the best NY comfort food. The best part? It's open 24/7! Perfect for nightshifters like me!

I also like their Short Rib Grilled Cheese and Margariri. But it will always be their Brioche French Toast. 10084

There was an online discount available, so I gladly took the chance.
Not that it’s my first time to go, but it’s been a long while.
I initially only wanted to order one item to jumpstart my day, nothing heavy that will impede my already half-existing exercise regime. But I saw that they have a green salad with arugula and spinach (similar to iron-wo!) so I went for it.
It was a bit if a let down. Just a bit.
Firstly, after placing the order for 10 mins, the wait asked if they could substitute the avocado with (overripe) mangoes to which I was perfectly fine with. It came with baby spinach and...romaine lettuce, which isn’t my thing. The salad was almost dry due to lack of dressing. The menu said it comes with roasted peppers. As a matter of fact, it is called “Moe’s sweet chile beaner” salad. I don’t recall having any. It would’ve been really nice if it did.
The sandwich was enjoyable though. Seared salmon WITH roast peppers and baby spinach and a dab if dressing. It is actually a filling meal, considering the size of the tuna. And at P460 (reg price), it better! The tuna would’ve tasted flat on its own so the chile added flavor and depth, and the light dressing helped.
I still consider everything to have gone well until I handed my card for payment and was told that I need to pay cash because its a discounted meal. Im like “what are you on about?”. I spoke to a young lady who was nice in all fairness, but just plainly said its their house rule to NOT accept cash for that kind of discount. I honestly felt discriminated against. Total put-off.
“What if I only have P50 in my wallet?”
She had to do something which she did, but only after an almost aggravated talk from me. Had they told me that BEFORE I ordered, it would’ve been ok.
Oh and another thing. I asked them to wrap up what I couldn’t finish and they did. But ever so sloppily. Just place everything in an unsealed container without bothering to wrap it up. It’s a discounted meal, you see. 128527

We didn't appreciate the idea that they didn't want to serve us because we were planning to stay on the first floor. It was 1am and they lacked servers so they opted to only server customers staying on the 2nd floor. It was too crowded and we just wanted to have a couple of drinks and some snacks so we just decided to move elsewhere due to this condition.

What a coincidence? They're in BGC too for Pokemon Go! I met my friend with his husband at The Bowery which is located at Forbeswoods Heights, Burgos Circle, Bonifacio Global City for lunch.

The Bowery serves NYC Comfort Food and operates in 24-hours daily.

This is our first time here and we find the place cool and a good vibe feels. They have nice interior which turns into a bar with DJs booth at night.

As we call the attentive server and we are ready to order, she recommends the Short Rib Grilled Cheese Sandwich, we got one order of what she recommends and add Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Waffles and Eggs Benedict.

The place is pricey but the servings are big that 2-3 persons can share in one plate.

Their Mac and cheese was pretty good! It looked small but it was very filling.

I also love their kamote fries and their cocktails. This place turns into a bar after dinner time.

Service was pretty good.

The bowery is open 24 hours and it's near our office, two of the reasons why I love this restaurant. Third, their SHORT RIB GRILLED CHEESE sandwich (420 pesos) is tdf it's even on my comfort food list. 128522

My friend dragged me to this place because she had a friend who knew the chef... Finally got to go to those interesting eating places along Rizal Drive in BGC...

Upon entering, the place gave off a good vibe... This looks like a place we would probably go back to as it is small enough not to get too noisy. Although, we'd find out how mistaken we were until later when all the rest of the tables in the ground floor were fully occupied by just one rowdy group!

The staff were competent, attentive and helpful. When asked for what they would recommend, the waitress tried hard to push the Lobster with truffle, cheesy macaroni which really sounded good until you saw the whopping price of 1,200! Next item, please...

We ordered the recommended Swedish Meatballs with apricot glaze -- yummy! Was sharing this with my friend while waiting for another friend to come and it was so good, we forgot to take pictures of it! Reminded me also of the Ikea meatballs... Which basically is a happy memory for me.

The next one I tasted was the recommended Spinach Corn Fritters which came with a tangy tomato dip and a sour cream dip. Loved the sour cream, didn't feel anything for the tangy dip. The corn fritters were a bit oily.

I also halved the recommended Spanglish BLT sandwich with my friend because I wasn't that hungry. The halved sandwich still looked big enough... Am not sure I felt anything for this sandwich... Let's just say... I really wanted to go home after and start making my own version of the classic BLT.

When we arrived, it was still happy hour and we could order any of the cocktail drinks for a buy-1-take-1 promo. We tried the watermelon cooler. I think this will be the reason for why I would come back here...

The meatballs and crusted oysters were superb! Pasta I didn't appreciate as much (but my friends liked them). Pork ribs were good though a bit too sweet for my taste. Chicken were nice and surprisingly tender. Salmon could have been cooked better.. Overall, really good food!

Grandma’s Pear Pie (Php650.00):
This pear pie is so comforting, it will remind you of home cooked goodness! The wonderful crisped-outer edges of this pie offers a beautiful crunch that complements the vanilla bean ice cream and hot Toddy caramel sauce that is poured on top. This specialty is served in a skillet to keep it warm and giving it that old school feel. 127824

Half baked cookie with vanilla ice cream? Sign me up puhlease!128582🏻

My first encounter was at Tus Claypots and Skillets. The experience was nothing but WOWZA!

So when I heard about a potential competitor, I didn't think twice and tried the place. Enter skillet chocolate chip cookie sundae of The Bowery. Baked cookie with their own vanilla ice cream, hot fudge sauce, whip cream and wet nuts.

It took me two spoons to find out I'm still team Tus. The Bowery's version is too sweet! The cloying effect took a toll right away. Also, the cookie is less firmer than the one from Tus.

So, Tus pa rin!128074

Food here is delicious. Not the ordinary type. Price is higher than average but can be shared by two. The staffs here are friendly. The interior design looks like you are in Europe. So comfy that will make you stay longer.

It was my first time to eat at The Bowery. Their place is really nice and comfy.

I tried their Pasta of the Day which is Sundried Tomato Pesto Baked Ziti. It looks nice but it tasted just okay. Nothing special I think. It was also kinda expensive.

On my next visit which will happen not too soon, I will still give them a chance and try their other food!

Steak and eggs. That's what I got. It was good! Steak was tender, cooked to my liking, but I wish there was more! ::-) I'll try the other dishes next time but for a quick steak fix, The Bowery isn't a bad place to get it from.

After dinner at Ninak, a bunch of my cousins and I had a round (or so) of drinks to just chill... We drove all the way from Makati to Burgos Circle, with no plan in mind... Those unplanned, spur-of-the-moment things are usually the ones that result in good memories...128077

So we walked around for awhile, until my cousin suggested The Bowery... We were led to the second floor and were ready to sit indoors... That is until we saw that the only available table was beside this very amorous couple... Well, I did say go to bars at your own risk, but that kind of, ummm, show, should be done in a room and on a bed... Shucks!128563 so we just opted to go outside, in the smoking area, but far away from the couple practicing tonsil hockey in the corner... 128540 #mahalangkwartosabgc #dimakaintaysikuya #matindingpangangailangan #freeshow

The Bowery serves NYC comfort food and the place is actually open 24hours during the holiday season... As for the four of us, we ordered our respective drinks and my cousin generously order the Lobster shrimp and truffle Mac and cheese for all of us to share... My drink was the cucumber creation something or the other, which was very refreshing...128077

Their Mac and cheese was to die for... Period... It had heaps of lobster, shrimps and the truffle taste was pronounced as well... The flavors blended well together, nothing was overpowering... Absolutely delicious!!! Surprisingly filling!128077 and very expensive at P1200... Yikes and thanks cuz!128516128516128516

Friendly staff and very reasonable serving time... Very dirty bathroom though...128078

Can I just say that only my brother recognized Jake Cuenca... Sorry naman, celebrity is lost on me...128540

Not sure why but we didn't fully enjoyed the food here 128549

We ordered the short rib grill cheese and steak & eggs.

Short rib grill cheese was not warm anymore when served. I was really excited to try this one since there were a lot of good reviews. But i don't know. Maybe I expected too much? Nothing really special, I am so sorry. 128560128524

Steak & Eggs was good. The steak was tender and tasty and the eggs were done perfectly. We liked the potatoes. We enjoyed this one better.

Plus they're kinda pricey. And service wasn't that good, either. I'm not sure if i'll be back here anytime soon (or ever again?) 128546

The seven layer Death by Chocolate is the best chocolate cake I have ever tasted in my entire existence! This cake costs an arm but what the heck it was really that good. One can have this cake ordered whole with a lead time of one day at a staggering cost of P4000 + for 16 slices. Their buttermilk chicken with waffles was oh so great too one of the best buttermilk chicken. For some NY style comfort food they are open 24/7.

Organic eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, spicy pork beans, and tomatoes! This is the English Breakfast from their brunch menu (only available during weekends and holidays.)

Pretty pricey at almost Php 400 but it was also pretty good. I can't complain about the quality. The sausage I didn't like that much but maybe it's because it had a hint of either cinnamon or nutmeg. Other than that, it was a good and filling meal. 128522

Place looks pretty nice also. I like the floor to ceiling black-bordered windows and the brick walls.

Service was okay, not the best. There was a fly hovering around us and the servers were just watching us battle it out with the fly. Haha.
