Finally got to visit this new area in Ortigas called The Sapphire Bloc. This is where Sobremesa is located as well.
Went late at night and saw the server outside asking folks to look at their menu. Looked at it and saw tapa. So I went in and tried it!
The tapa (Php 295) was pretty good! It's not overly sour/soaked in vinegar like IHOP's version but not too sweet or saucy (Rufo's levels) either.
They also have other interesting items on their menu like the 24 Hour Brined Double Cut Porkchop and the Seafood Cioppino.
Servers need a little more energy but then again at 11PM maybe they were all very tired and just wanted to go home.

Had the salisbury steak lunch special. The food's quite filling and the ambience provides just the right chill vibe.

Sosyal na baked mac.. That is how I would describe the 4 cheese truffle pasta of Stockpile. Seriously though, the pasta tasted good. The cheesy flavor blended well with the truffle oil. The burnt top gave it a nice crunch the bacon bits added just bit of salty flavor. This was much better than the vongole pasta which was too salty for my palate. Wasn't a WOW experience but overall it was OK.

This is one of the restos located at the ground floor of the newly constructed Sapphire Bloc in Ortigas. The place was pretty much impressive with a great ambience. However, the food has still a lot of room for improvement. I ordered a simple fare of longsilog. Nothing special. I have tasted better and cheaper versions in other places. I could still bite into the rock salt granules in the fried rice. They also put some lettuce as garnish which didn't go to well because of the overly sour dressing. I however give them credit for the coffee that came with the food. It was good and was served in a presser.
What took the cake however, was when we got our bill. Given the "classiness" of the place one would expect to get an official receipt or at least a tape receipt printed by the POS. Instead, we were given a small piece of paper where our bill was scribbled carenderia style! Since the place is only a few weeks old, I am giving it a chance to improve and I hope it will.
